Talk:Battle Herald (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
Question on Spells
The header says "Spells per Day/Spells Known" but under it at each level it says, "+1 bard caster level". Does this mean that the character only gets a caster level increase and not any new spells? —Sledged 14:51, 21 September 2006 (MDT)
- I would say an increase with the spells only. Just my thoughts, and I see you already changed it so it is like that. Thanks. --Green Dragon 22:07, 21 September 2006 (MDT)
- It gains a bard caster level. This means a Battle Heral both learns new spells and raises its caster level as if it had gained another level as a bard. This is to prevent wizards and sorcerers from multiclassing into the PrCs and receiving the benefit of extra spells. Yes, there is a precedent for this, there are a few PrCs around that only raise druid caster levels around, and while making a bard-oriented PrCs, I came to the conclussion that the reason there are so few, and so crappy PrCs for bards is because most of them just say "+1 caster level" and you could add it to wizards or sorcerers, giving them (most likely) d6`s HD, a decent BaB, better saves, etc. This problem is cleanly avoided by just saying "bard caster level". Done, end of the problem. --Maglad 12:07, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
