Re: ROT Anthology Campaign Volume 2 BETA Announcement

Chapter 2 has been released to the live server in an open beta state. Please leave feedback on bugs. I have done three run-throughs so far, and really haven't encountered any significant bugs yet. Here's what I can report: 1) Some of the rocks on the cave floors (the ones that don't go to the ceili...

Re: Class Balancing Program - Warlocks

The last time warlocks were "balanced" on RoT was about 4 years ago. At that time they were beaten with the nerf bat (more like a morningstar) since some players actually left because they perceived warlocks as too powerful (that doesn't seem to be the case anymore). Specifically DCs, Tena...

Re: Class balancing program - Monk

You want full +20 save bonus, well, you must have 50 wis and at least 20 pure monk levels. +1! The one-level Monk dip for the full WIS bonus to AC is cheesy enough. I think the "Ascetic Strength" as proposed by Samyx is the way to go if you're also going to grant a save bonus based on the...

Re: Class balancing program - Thug

First, it seems Thugs dont have enough Skillpoints per ( when DB is actual ). For Tumble, Hide, MS, Intimidate ( Browbeat ), Open Lock, Spellcraft and Perform ( not Class Skill ) 4 skillpoints feels very low. Suggest 6 Skillpoints per Level and Perform as Class Skill. Thug gets Extraordinary Compet...

Re: Class balancing program - Thug

FYI: I'm adding Crippling Strike as an auto granted feat on Thug Level 10 when we roll out the monk changes. I didn't see anything about this in the Release Notes today, but the Thug description in the Content Library shows Crippling Strike being auto-granted at level 7. Was this pushed out with th...

Re: Class balancing program - Swashbuckler

+1 for removing Heavy armor proficiency as prerequisite for COTW. That is a constraint only, and RP speaking it can't be explained. Add mobility if you want a trade ? +1 I never understood the Heavy Armor Proficiency either (except as a feat "tax" to choose the class), especially consider...

Re: A RoT Character Building Primer Series: Epic Dodge

I've never quite figured this out, but how do Epic Dodge, Deflect Arrows, Epic Deflection and Armed Deflection interact when facing a horde of archers? In what sequence do they trigger and under what conditions? Also no idea if Epic Deflection/Deflect arrows work if armed. I bet someone in the grea...

A RoT Character Building Primer Series: Expose Weakness

Background: Expose Weakness is an epic feat that can cause automatic damage which ignores all damage reductions and immunities, and also causes a stacking Armor Class (AC) penalty to any monster struck. It is also very useful when attacking concealed enemies and/or Epic Dodgers. Furthermore, it is ...

Re: A RoT Character Building Primer Series: Epic Dodge

In the interest of completeness, I added to the original post additional information in the third paragraph under the "Simple Epic Dodge Build Basics" heading to include a 7-level PrC combination of Shadowdancer and Whirling Dervish that could qualify for Epic Dodge. In the same paragraph ...
