Hierophant + Master Alchemist Brew Potion issue.

Unread post by Rain » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:12 pm

So I was testing around with using the Hierophant bonus caster level feats and brewing potions higher then my normal caster level with the Spell Power feats.

Safe to say the spell power feats don't effect my caster level on brewing potions from master alchemist.

Not sure if this is a bug or if this is working as intended.

But I thought i'd throw that out there.

Per wiki https://wiki.bgtscc.net/index.php?title ... _Alchemist
Alchemist Brew
Type of Feat: Class
Prerequisites: Master Alchemist 1
Specifics: When on the next spell cast will be brewed into a potion, provided there is an empty vessel to store it in. The Master Alchemist class gains access to a second brewing ability, alchemist brewing, through which he can brew elixirs. Elixirs scale to the alchemist's casterlevel, except for a select few spells which are capped on grounds of server policy. The maximum casterlevel supported is 30. Minimum casterlevel available for any craftable spell is 10. A Master Alchemist may choose at which casterlevel to brew his elixirs. But not his regular potions. His cost reduction feats apply for both elixirs and potions. When imbibing elixirs toxic effects may occur. These vary depending on the level of toxicity and previous potions imbibed. The more toxic, the harsher the effect. If this occurs in combat it may severely incapacitate you, leading to death. In most cases you will be able to safely imbibe two elixirs. You will however need to consult with your local master alchemist if this is safe or will likely lead to trouble. Some elixirs don't combine well with others...

Except...certain spells, like Divine Power (these days...), is restricted to Level 12.

Nope i was trying to brew normal potions like flame weapon. My normal caster level is a 22 but i have spell power 3 from hiero which should in theory allow me to make CL 25 flame weapon potions. But once I set my CL to 25 and brew the potion it defaults back down to CL 22.

I was more, just making sure if this is suppose to work or not. Or if it was just an overlooked combination of mechanics that wasent thought about by the team to work just yet.
