      Alex has some experience with the Slayer (I think) and I’m hoping to get a feel for the class soon. I was initially pretty excited about it as an NPC class. Something quick and easy I could throw up against my players with numbers enough to feel threatening. But I admit I haven’t looked too deeply into it.

  1. Thank you for the timely coverage; I’ve been debating with myself whether to use my Suli race boon to make a Skald or a Daring Champion Cavalier.

    I look forward to your coverage of the War Priest because you sound very excited about them and I’m not sure why yet, other than the fact than it works better for dwarves than Paladin does.

    Very interesting discussion! But one key thing overlooked about Inspired Rage that I always bring up — while the Str/Con bonuses increase at levels 1/8/16, the Will save bonus increases at 1/4/8/12/16/20. So a 20th level skald provides a whopping +6 bonus on Will saves! Now that’s something to really make them a barbarian/bloodrager/fighter/rogue/practically-anything’s best friend.
