the Wretched Curator feat is very tasty (though complicated).
"You can always purchase potions and scrolls of spells with the evil descriptor at a 10% discount, even if they are not normally available in a settlement because of its size or the local laws."

Almost as good as Wanderer's Diplomacy.

I just came across a crazy spell. Fungal Blisters is a second level spell that allows for insane damage.
Quote
When you cast this spell, horrible, fungal growths sprout forth all over your body. You develop 1d2+1 of these blisters per 2 caster levels. Each time you are dealt more than 5 points of bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage from a single attack, one of these blisters bursts, releasing a cloud of harmful spores in a 5-foot-radius burst centered on you.

These spores enter the lungs of all living creatures within the cloud that need to breathe and deal 1d6+1 points of damage for every 2 caster levels you have (Fort negates). This is a disease effect, and you and plants aren’t affected by the spores. It is possible for more than one blister to burst in a single round. If you are reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, all remaining blisters burst, and the resulting spores deal the cumulative amount of damage.

You are not able to cast this spell while wearing heavy armor. If you don heavy armor during the spell’s duration, all remaining blisters burst as if you had been reduced to 0 or fewer hit points.
The trick is to cast Fungal Blisters and then don heavy armor. This can be done with Swift Girding, Folding Plate, Armiger's Panoply or Instant armor. At this point, you will deal .25CL2(1d2+1)(1d6+1), or an average of 2.8*CL2 to everyone within 5 feet who fails all their saves. At 20th, it's 1,125 damage on average! Doesn't work on plants, or things immune to disease. Thus, you should become an Evangelist of Apollyon, which lets you punch through many disease immunities.

With Quicken Spell, you can get this off in one round for a 5th and a second level slot. At CL 10, it deals 281 damage. Even if enemies pass half their saves, that's enough to kill most CR 10 enemies in one hit.

Share spell with a familiar for double the fun?

Share Spells doesn't work like that in PF any more. There's a feat to restore old functionality, but your familiar isn't immune to the damage, so, that's a problem.

Plant Familiar! Or just anything that doesn't need to breath...

Oh, oh, expendable stuff! Proxy Summoning can let you share this spell with your summoned creatures yeah? :P

Holy shitballs!

And it's PFS legal, for people like me.

A Psychic Bloodline Razmiran Sorcerer could get it off at 9th level (excluding item tricks) and suffer no ASF.

.

Also, Whirling Hold (from a ways above) doesn't actually break grapple.

o.O

It needs more metamagic.
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

its a perfect candidate for cheap metamagic rods, since its only 2nd level.
