Ok time to get srs.
I Charm one of the Dustmen, I just want him to move out of the way "Be careful friend, you are in danger!"
If I am successful, spiderbot will melee a caster, if I fail, bot will shoot a caster.
BR 13 hits either way for 5x2.
I like berries as a free action. They are capped at 8 /rd, and you can only carry 8 max (at least, until we get much higher level), so I don't think they are anywhere near as abusive as infinite potions of any type as a free action.
* I definitely want the shuriken gun.
