Re: The 3.5/Pathfinder Handbook
Oh, I don't really think they're too weak. Wizards didn't get all that much, but then they didn't really need all that much, and the buffs they did get help them out in the early game, when they need it most. Wizards are still a very good class - I'm playing one now, in fact. And the school powers are a fun way to set the school specialisations apart a bit.

Actually, Paladin MAD has been reduced by their good Will save and basing their spellcasting off Cha. This means they can now afford to dump Wisdom. So a Pathfinder pally only needs high Cha, high Str, decent Con.
