Adding these other stat feats is deceptive: it's not really going to make mobs easier ultimately - the effect will be that once more classes have higher AB, the mobs will be appropriately adjusted upwards. End effect is wisdom/strength/dex-based could see harder mobs and there would be no real impact on char/int-based builds, other than a now-mandatory stat-feat pick
How exactly did you reach that conclusion? My main point and the reason why i am suggesting the stat feats in the first place, is because when easymode gets disabled/removed/whatever, gishes will die. They are not strong right now in the first place, they are barley viable. (unless you play them like a wizard with identity crysis, then you have a build that is essentially a weaker fighter with self conceal)
Lets compare builds and hard numbers because it seems people here have some romantic idea of gishes beeing strong, and suddenly beeing completely overpowered if they'd get a feat that gives them AB on their primary stat.
AB: 69, not counting TWF
DC: (40+9) *1,25 = 61 with level 9 evocation spells
AB: 88 -2 (flurry)
DC: (42+9) *1,25 = 63
Post easymode? Cleric stays the same, its not easymode in the first place. The gish gets either -3 AB/AC (it cant, it already is too low) or -3 base DCs for 57 dc with level 9 spells (which is under the magic 60 marker of not fizzling half your spells).
If you give the gish tactical strikes, (and by some miracle i'd find a non-essential feat in the build that i can throw out) all that changes is that the gish can sacrifice 3 AC for keeping all its DCs, it gains damage and loses survivability. Its a fair trade, but it doesnt ultimately make the gish stronger.
As for nerfing intuitive attacks, and not touching zen archery: There is a belt that gives you *all* of the essential archer feats, and a bow that gives you 12 wisdom and practiced caster cleric. Zen archery is without doubt the better alternative already, with the same feat requirements. I compared those feats with intuitive attack, because i'd rather see melee feats.
Edit: And just to make that clear, i am struggling for survival here. This is a lifering, not a rocket backpack. After those feats gishes'll still
need some love but at least the'll be playable.
