Jump to: navigation, search

Type of Feat: Class

Prerequisite: Shifter 7

Required for: None

Specifics: The character may shift into various humanoid forms (Drow Warrior, Kobold Commando & Lizardman) 3x/day. The shapes are replaced by stronger Epic versions at level 17.

Use: Selected

This form of shapeshifting cannot be dispelled.

Bonuses from weapons, armor, shield, helmet, boots, cloak, and jewelry merge into all three shapes. Base (non-magical) AC from shields merge but not from armor. Bracer/gauntlet/glove properties merge except for attack bonuses and bonus damage. Off-hand weapon and ranged weapon properties never merge. Unlike in the original campaign, all AC bonuses merge, not just the highest.

Normal Forms receive :

 Cleave
 Weapon Finesse
 +20 Discipline (+12 for Drow)

Epic Forms receive :

 Cleave
 Weapon Finesse
 +20 Discipline

Weapon focus feats now work with all forms that use weapons. Feats must be taken for the weapon the specific form wields to apply.
