View Full Version : Extra traits?

Under the Action tab when setting up a save for a spell, I noticed there is a field under SAVE labeled Extra traits. What is that used for exactly?

I was trying to setup a basic save for the Heal spell but it doesn’t appear there is a way to affect the damage results for Critical Success, Success, Failure, and Critical Failure. It can only be set to do half damage on a success.

Extra traits add traits to the save. So if the saving creature has any SAVE effects that apply to specific traits, they’ll be applied to savoring throw actions with that trait. See the SAVE effect in the Wiki.

"Half damage" is the same as the PF2 "basic save" (no damage on a critical success, half on a success, full damage on a failure and double damage on a critical failure).
