Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

If dropping the bear's HP, one option to keep overall toughness similar is to raise the Bear's damage immunities from 30% to 50%. 4,760 ÷ 0.7 (damage taken @ 30% immunity) = 6,800 effective HP This correlates to 3,400 HP with 50% immunity to all. Of course, this also effectively increases regenerati...

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

With the rod, I summoned a CL40 bear on my Sorcerer and used it in parallel with his CL 52 Mirrorgolem (Mastery III) Some stats: Level 40 Bear has (unbuffed) 4,760 HP, 104 AC, 104 AB, 30% Immunity all, no passive Regeneration whatsoever. Has Improved Critical, Weapon Specialization with the creature...

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

A rod to my account would be nice too.

Same as forumID.

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

Just had a thought: Wouldn't the animal companion scaling formulae I proposed or the existing Mirror Golem scaling code make sense for summon spells? They're currently brokenly weak as they have no caster level scaling whatsoever. Level 9 Summons like Summon Creature IX, Gate, Phantom Bear would sum...

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

@Brumm I think we need some general guidelines on how powerful to make the animal companions in order to give any concrete leveling plans. Perhaps you could post one (maybe the bear?) as an example, so others can propose others? As I've mentioned before, I believe a baseline companion should roughly...

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

Hi Brumm, You're welcome! I'm trying to peg animal companion strength to the Mirror Golem's, as comparisons between both are inevitable. In general, I am thinking of a general power level of Dragon > Dinosaur > Other Companions = Telthor = Mirror Golem, due to the difficulty of getting the Dragon co...

Re: When NOT to use runewords? Also, first-time forging question

The mainhand weapon gets an extra attack per round from haste that the offhand does not benefit from, assuming Perfect TWF. Prior to PTWF, the difference in attacks per round is even greater. Hence, it is generally better to put all ER3 metals on your mainhand weapon in a TWF based build as the ER3 ...

Re: When NOT to use runewords? Also, first-time forging question

I honestly would not recommend using that weapon as a primary weapon. It has 2 major issues: 1) The 3d12 Piercing does not stack with the +13 damage from the enhancement bonus 2) The 3d10 Bludgeoning will not stack with the ER3 adamantite. It's decent as an offhand weapon though. If you do insist in...

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

Character Feats There are 4 main companion feats that a player can select: Natural Bond, Improved Natural Bond, Epic Animal Companion, and Exalted Companion (Shared Rage is not really useful) Improved Natural Bond is very niche, requiring either a Telthor Companion (offsetting the SS -3 CL penalty ...

Re: PROPOSED CHANGE: Animal Companion

I'm not against having it summonable more than 1x/day, but I believe the numbers from the formula should be more than sufficient unless you're trying to solo EX6 Event server content or something along those lines. Realistically, we can expect a level 40 druid who bothers with a companion to have at...
