I'm sorry to be THAT guy complaining but...
If someone asked me yesterday which class he was supposed to pick to make a DC-based caster, I'd promptly tell him to pick an archmagi wizard and go magister destiny. It was supposed to be the role of the class after all. Well, that is not true anymore, at least when we are talking about epic levels.
The new Exalted Angel now gives you a +3 transcendental (?), non-twistable bonus to all spell DCs. I get that it was supposed to help clerics catch up with the arcane casters, but a second glance will reveal it actually does not do that. The ones that gets the most benefit from this are sorcerers.
Think about it, the EA tree is made for wisdom/charisma-based casters. A charisma-based caster can increase his spells DCs not only by the core ability bonus, but also by buying charisma from the tree (a total of +6 permanent DC for all spells) - not counting the bonuses for twisting the magister and draconic incarnation bonuses.
Not only that, all SLAs in the tree can also use charisma-based checks (soundburst with a ridiculously low SP cost is also the perfect crowd control spell for many types of enemies). A wizard cannot buy intelligence from the tree itself, nothing in it benefits from his high intelligence, it is mostly a dead tree except for some twistable abilities.
So while clerics and favoured souls CAN now catch up with wizards, the huge-saves-because-two-paladin-levels sorcerers are also now the rightful choice for DC-based casters, twice the SP and all.
Don't get me wrong, I like the new EA tree and all, but compare it with the magister tree: a +3 permanent bonus against a +5 temporary for 20 seconds every 4 minutes! I thought it was a major drawback not adding a intelligence choice for the attributes in the EA tree - or giving a similar, permanent bonus to the magister tree instead of (or in addition) that horrible timed thing. Are wizards condemned to forget DCs and play shiradi champions forever?
