Until you get godhood (!!!!!) the abilities are pretty "meh", fighter-ish level, especially considering it's an epic PrC. Kinda hard to give it a balance rating... unquantifiable? --Ghostwheel 20:56, November 3, 2009 (UTC)

Divine Rank

It might make more sense if it gained a divine rank of 0 at 6th, then 1 at 12th level. Bringing its balance up a ways. Also, why is there no BAB or save gained? While it has its benefits, having a 12 level detriment to BAB is hard compensated for! --Franken Kesey 16:02, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

You don't get BAB after 20th level. since this is an epic prestige class it follows epic rules of +1 to hit and saves every 2 levels. all epic levels are like that--NameViolation 16:16, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Minimum Level

The minimum level (if you play your cards right), should be 24 - not 28. --Franken Kesey 04:58, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

BAB 24?

you cant get your BAB up to 24. Dragons can, and i'm sure outsiders and a few other things can, but i thought players aren't normally allowed to? doesn't that make this un-enterable via BAB? --NameViolation 05:15, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

I suppose by the strict RAW epic-sucks-rules, you'd be right since the BAB increases aren't actually "BAB" increases, because they suck. Though, I've been pondering dropping entry down to 21st, to make it able to slip into epic right away, and end up with SR 32 at ECL 32. More on that as I think on it. -- Eiji Hyrule 05:19, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
Very few campaigns actually get beyond 10th level, even lesser get to epic; but getting to 40th level - I've never heard of! I think this build would be far more reasonable (and, thus playable), if its minimum level was 21. Just a thought --Franken Kesey 07:41, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
On a related note, caster level doesn't really limit things very much, either. So while fighters have trouble becoming gods (RAW, they don't become gods at all ever), a Cleric can meet that prerequisite at level 18 with a Bead of Karma, Orange Prism Ioun Stone, and a Death Knell. If Death Knell stacks, they can qualify even earlier. Irrelevant because of the skill requirements, though. --IGTN 21:26, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
To clear things up about the BAB issue, the bonus you get a epic levels is treated as an increase of your BAB for all purposes except iterative attacks, so a 28th level Fighter would qualify for this class, except for the skill requirements. Furthermore I think the intention of the caster level requirement means base caster level, i.e. not modified by magic items or spells. --PixieDragon 22:56, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Divine Appearance

Just to add more benefits to flavor, you might want to add bonuses to intimidate or perform with this feature. --Franken Kesey 07:52, May 2, 2010 (UTC)
