Someone please explain to me how a paladin 5 / sorcerer 3 has no access to 2nd level paladin spells. From my calculations, the CL is 5: 2 from the paladin and 3 from the sorcerer. HL is not allowing me access to 2nd level paladin spells.

I guess I should clarify, is multiclassing broken in Hero Lab?

So does anybody know if this is broken? Other sites elude to this but don't come out and say it. I just need to know so I can either report it or figure out what I am doing wrong.

Caster levels don't stack like that. He would be a CL 2 Paladin for paladin spells and CL 3 from sorcerer. If the sorcerer were to cast burning hands, it would do 3d4 not 5d4.

It's just like how channels from Paladin/Cleric don't stack. A basic rule is most class abilities do not benefit from other class levels.

Thank you for clarifying that with me. I might have known I was doing something wrong. ��
