Black Tentacles, Confusion, Enervation on nonundead, Crushing Despair + Misfortune was obnoxious one time but admittedly I rolled very badly to resist.
Early on, the usual suspects with Obscuring Mist, Ray of Enfeeblement, thry mostly stuck to support and hiding though. 3rd and onward was Glitterdust soam, Ray of Exhaustion. Tried Web once but failed miserably.
Out of combat? Less of an issue. Scry in particular has been useful for them.
But in general I do not like having to tailor every combat so there is an enemy spellcaster around to aggressively dispel and counter debuff the party. Nor do I like the idea of throwing shit like say, a room full of greater invisible'd succubi who immeduately go for the back ranks with level drain grapples. Comes off as less fun and more antagonistic.>>53164309
I have rarely seen an initiator delete enemies harder than an optimized archer Monk, archer Fighter, archer Paladin
cBarbarian, Investigator, Vivisectionist, Magus, or Inquisitor.
Not counting Summoners, pretty sure they don't classify as 'martial' even as a synthesis summoner.
