Yep, I would ask the same. Every form seems awesome...except the stag beetle. Who would choose to take Feral Shifter and want to able to change only into a Beetle? I know I absolutely wouldn't. Replacing it with a Werewolf would be amazing, though. It might be cliche, but it's cliche because it's good and desirable. Smile

Late (and probably unnecessary) Edit: To put it into more perspective.
Worg "I can change into a demonic wolf! Awesome!"
Telthor Bear "I can change into a spirit bear! Awesome!"
White Tiger "I can change into a beautiful and cool looking tiger! Awesome!'
Phase Spider "I can change into an ethereal and huge spider! Awesome!"
Stag Beetle "...I can change into a horned beetle... Wow."

Sorry but I couldn't resist. Razz

It's complicated. I can't add new appearances because that will mess with existing PWs who all have different appearance files. White Tiger may be turned off on release for this very reason. I'm still trying to figure out what to do for this one.

I have a couple of questions about the Feral Shifter.

I don't remember seeing this base class in any kind of source book; does that mean it's featured in a Dragon magazine issue or is this a custom base class?

If the latter, would it be possible to see more Chosen Forms added? Since you spoke of difficulties of adding new appearances, how about the *old* creatures we already have? For example, the deinonychus as pretty much the sole reptilian animal representative (well, amongst the megaraptor and such) in Neverwinter Nights 2.

Well, as the desciption implies Feral Shifters cannot level up in any other classes (neither base nor prestige), I recon more choices could spice things up quite a bit.

Sorry about this small thread necromancy.



On a side note, I disagree Archaos. The stag beetle is an attractive choice to transform into. Especially if it also provides immunity against mind-affecting effects which all vermin possess.

Custom base class.
New forms can be added but each shape takes 16 entries in the polymorph 2da file and a new blueprint.

Given that barely any server enables dinos as they are invalid for their ecosystems I can't see spending the time on that as a shape.

That's sad news for us singleplayers to hear. pale

What's your thoughts about expanding the Feral Shifter towards the umberhulk or wyvern then? Given the fact that the Chosen Form already covers animals, magical beasts, fey and vermin adding an wild aberration and/or animal-like dragon doesn't feel out of place here.


Edit:
One creature not mentioned yet is the wererat from Mysteries of Westgate. Truth be told I'm not aware how many server use this shapeshifter creature, or if it even fits the coming up description of the Feral Shifter. This is neither a suggestion nor a request. Just throwing an idea around.
