Playtest Pathfinder’s New Classes Before The End of 2013

  • by

Paizo has launched a worldwide playtest for Pathfinder players! Paizo’s Advanced Class Guide is coming in August of 2014, but from today until December 20th, you can download the playtest and provide feedback to the publishers. You will be given surveys on the use of these classes and any modifications you might suggest could be used in the final editing on the book by the designers.

Along with the classes will come new rules, feats, abilities, items, and so much more. Paizo wants the input of the Pathfinder community in order to best serve its players, and since they must follow the rules of the current Pathfinder rulebook, need vigorous testing. Erik Mona, Paizo Publisher, says that he believes new classes excite players the most, and that is exactly what they plan to deliver. Classes included in this playtest are :

  • Arcanist
  • Bloodrager
  • Brawler
  • Hunter
  • Investigator
  • Shaman
  • Skald
  • Slaver
  • Swashbuckler
  • Warpriest

You can download the playtest from now until December 20th at the Paizo website in anticipation of the hardcover Advanced Class Guide coming next year. The designers at Paizo want these characters to be balanced and work well with the current system, so have them face Pathfinder’s deadliest foes and run them in campaigns to give them the best feedback possible! They are anxious to see what players think, so be a part of the next addition to Pathfinder and provide your thoughts!
