Relatively minor thing. Put the Class DC on the Play screen. And printouts.

"A class DC sets the difficulty for some abilities granted by your character’s
class. Class DC = 10 + proficiency bonus + key ability modifier."

As we are new to the PF2 system, we had to go tearing through the books to find a character's class DC, all while I had an HLO printout of the character and kept mumbling to myself "It should be on here..."

of course, different classes get raised to expert and master at different levels.

Each of the abilities on the class already has its own DC calculated (which will be the class DC of the class it's on). Because of that, we decided not to spend some of the space on the play tab displaying the class DC on its own. Under what circumstances would you be looking for the class DC when you're not using one of the class' abilities? I'm just trying to gauge how often this would be used.

Not sure as I was not playing the character, but it was some Alchemist ability. It escapes me which one. I should try to find out

Okay the problem isn't with HLO. He wasn't using the Fumbus I printed out and gave him, but a print out of Fumbus he found on Paizo.

Hello, I agree that the Class DC would be an important stats to have on your character sheet (and play screen) as some rules (like from the Critical hit deck) requires your Class (or Spell) DC!

Excerpt from the P2 critical hit deck rules:

"The save DC for an effect inflicted by a PC is their class DC"

Possible to add this info?

Thanks!

Tell me again why the PFD printout does not use the Character sheet from the book, Please?
The class DC should be one of the stats on the first view, along with the Six attributes, AC, Perception, and Saving Throws.

In addition, using the Trick Magic Item feat may require you to know your Class DC when using something you have found and need to use.

Maybe the official charactersheet layout is copyrighted and not included in LW's license agreement with Paizo? I can't think of any other reason NOT to have the official layout as an option at least when outputting from HL to pdf.
