    Default Question about "master of (school)"

    Spell DC is determined by:

    10 + Spell Level + Casting Stat Modifier + Items + Feats = DC

    So what does the Magister "Master of (school)" do for you? What spells are we using where increasing the caster level and max caster level matter?

    As far as I can tell it will not change the DC. Will increasing the caster level increase the spell pen? (It could since spell pen uses caster level, does it?) Is that what is intended here?

    Increasing the duration of the spell when you are already level 25ish, seems a bit useless, but maybe...
    /sigh

    Anything needing Spell Pen. Or anything with duration or damage based on the caster level.

    I had suspected spell pen was one of reasons.

    So the "increase max caster level" part will affect the 1d6 per two caster levels up to level 20 type of thing, correct? Thus allowing the max damage by a spell to go up further if it was already capped by level.

    Do many damage casters take magister? I had kind of assumed that they would all be in sorc pre's and draconic, where DC casters would do pale master/archmage and magister.

    It's just the spell pen. I can't think of any damage spell that caps above the 25 you already have from 20 heroic + 5 Magister, and you would have to burn your Spell School Specialist in an otherwise unimportant DC on top of it.
