My sorcerer does not pre-buff with stoneskin. I'm looking at ease-of-use script and indeed they are excluded, anyone knows why?


It's the same for stoneskin, mage armor, melf meteors (I can sort of understand this one)

Are you playing on an EE? Per the readme, the SCS ease-of-use script doesn’t automatically work for spontaneous casters but the readme has instructions on how to enable it.

No I'm playing classic. I have already "fixed" it for myself, I'm just curious what was the reason. Why spontaneous caster(s) are excluded?

If a mage has Stoneskin memorized, the only thing they can do with that slot is cast Stoneskin. So it makes sense to cast it whenever it's helpful.

If a sorcerer casts Stoneskin, it uses up a 4th-level slot that they might have been planning to use for something else. It's much more difficult to anticipate when a player might or might not want to use that slot, so I leave it up to players by default. (This is actually the result of a specific request from someone who played sorcerers, years ago.)
