This may be a one off kind of issue, but there are some weapons that were initially viable option in the normal Weapon Focus feat that were never assigned to a weapon group and thus cannot be selected when the Group Weapon Feats is enabled.

I am referring to those "weapons" that are magic or spell-based; i.e. rays and kinetic blasts.

I know rays are select-able, Not sure about blasts though.

Rays are covered. There's a separate feat called Weapon Focus (ray) for that.

However, you're correct: Kineticist blasts are not currently supported. I overlooked them. And here's a relevant bit of FAQ:

Quote:
Certain special abilities (for instance rays, kinetic blasts, and mystic bolts) can specifically be selected with feats like Weapon Focus and Improved Critical. They still arenít considered a type of weapon for other rules; they are not part of any weapon group and donít qualify for the effects of fighter weapon training, warpriest sacred weapon, magus arcane pool, paladin divine bond, or any other such ability.
Furthermore, although ordinarily you wouldn't have access to things like Weapon Specialization and Greater Weapon Focus due to not having any fighter levels, the Elemental Annihilator grants you those as selectable bonus feats.

Yay, complications.

I'm tempted to just make a new weapon group called Kinetic Blasts and call it good, even though that does not honor the FAQ written above. That's probably the most straightforward solution. Otherwise it might take a custom feat chain that's just like the Weapon Focus feat chain, only just for kinetic blasts. I'd really rather not do that. It's clunky.

Let me mull it over a bit and get back to you.

anyone have a current, working link to the data files for this? The posted links all go to dead pages.

Say what now?

As far as I can tell, the site is still up. Where are these dead links?

EDIT: Also, why did I not get a notification of this response until today, when it was apparently posted nearly three weeks ago?

I think the forums are set to require manual approval for a new person's first post, and LW is rather shorthanded at the moment.

Possible BUG #1: The WiS rule with finesse is not applying to touch attacks. I have a Cleric 5 with a 10 Str and 14 Dex. This should give him a normal +3 melee touch and +5 ranged touch. With WiS finesse set to Dex, both should adjust to +5.

My understanding is that touch attacks = natural attacks = finesse can apply.

Possible BUG #2: Same cleric is carry a shield. The shield's ACP penalty is applying to finesse attacks, as per normal Weapon Finesse feat. Was this intentional?

Krothos, could you post the .por file for this character so I can take a look at what's going on?
