Wizard Specialty Schools

Unread post by SyntheticRose » Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:31 am

Hi! I've just arrived here on the server, and my bladesinger hopeful has encountered a bit of a bug! When taking my first level of Wizard (which happened in the storage room at the harbor, smushing rats), I gave her Evocation as a specialty school, and naturally, selected Necromancy as my prohibited school.

Now, even after a relog, and a reset, my Info page of my character sheet correctly shows the specialty school as Evocation....

...and my Feats page correctly shows that Mareth has no interest in mucking about with the dead, but incorrectly calls me a generalist.
Image

Now, even after a server reset, at Wizard 3 with 19 INT, I believe I am missing the spell slots I would get for specializing.

Is this a bug that can be fixed?

This seems correct.

Level 3 wizard gets 4 cantrips, 2 level 1 spells, and 1 level 2 spell.

Add +1 to everything (except cantrips) for specialization.. 4 cantrips, 3 level 1 spells, 2 level 2 spells.

19 int gives you a bonus of +1 level 1 spell and +1 level 2 spells... 4 cantrips, 4 level 1 spells, 3 level 2 spells, exactly what you have. :)

Huh. Alright. I suppose I was just expecting the General feat to be Evocation. When I click on it, it has the description of a generalist wizard.

Did you use the prohibited school picking feat? Or school of specialization picking feat? I can't remember what it was.

It shouldn't give you the generalist feat if you picked evocation, yeah.

I gained a useable feat to select my prohibited school, which was replaced with the Necromancy prohibited school after I used it.

I.. didn't gain any useable feat to select my specialty school -- I just selected Evocation in the level-up screen. If it helps, my first level was in Swashbuckler and my second in Wizard.

Very interesting list of unobtainable scrolls in your guide, by the way -- thank you.

That's fine, I think you just select your prohibited school, and the specialization school comes from character creation, I just haven't created a wizard in a long while... :)

Yep it's right. No issue with spell slots here.

Yup, you got the right amount of spells.
