Re: [pcgen] Re: [PATHFINDER] [Resolved] Special Abilities using both racial and class HD
Glad you were able to figure it out. Thanks for the follow up.
Please close that tracker if you verify the fix works.

For example, and this is the one I most recently came across, I made a yeti with several class levels, and it included them in the calculation of the DC for its Frightful Gaze ability. However, as listed on p. 300 of the Bestiary, gaze attacks only use racial HD for this calculation, and so the DC should only increase if racial HD are added, not class levels.
