Macready Posted May 12, 2006 Share Posted May 12, 2006 Hello - I just tried out the shapeshifter rebalancing component of Tutu Tweaks, and this component is in desperate need of nerfing when used with Tutu. Both of the paws yield +8 to hit, which essentially means that a level 1 shapeshifter becomes roughly equivalent to a level 9 fighter (2 attacks per round, base THAC0 +8) once they use the paw -- and level 9 as a fighter is not even attainable within the TotSC XP cap. Furthermore, immunity to normal weapons is vastly overpowered in BG1. Only a small percentage of enemies in the game are even going to be able to inflict any damage at all. Might I suggest a reworking of the regular shapeshifter paw for Tutu? I am thinking: * remove immunity to normal weapons * change +8 THAC0 bonus to +1 bonus (or +2 at most) * change 1d12 damage back to 1d6 or 1d8 Even with these substantial nerfs, the rebalanced shapeshifter would still be a formidable kit in Tutu. As it stands now, the shapeshifter is unplayable with this component installed. Link to comment
