Druid wildshape shift loses wisdom during shift

Post  cacodaemon on Wed May 30, 2012 7:19 am

I play on RoT and noticed that spells were dropping out of my spell book when I shifted into forms.

I have a level 15 Assimar Shifter that has 23 wisdom not including any item bonuses. I wear a necklace that gives me plus 5 wisdom. So I have 28 wisdom when not shifted. When I shift into bear, tree, or Ember guard, my wisdom drops down to 26. I didn't test every form, I only list the forms I tested with. Can anyone clarify if how stats are intended to transfer over from items. When doing this I don't have any other equipment on (except the necklace) that gives a stat bonus to wisdom and I don't have any wisdom buffs cast.

I opened a thread about this on the RoT forums and Brian responded that he is using your polymorph code.

Is this above behavior what you would expect when shifting?

Thanks

I did some more testing based on feedback from other players at Rot. Some felt the issue has to do with racial bonuses not carrying over to shifted forms. I unequipped everything so that my wisdom was at it's natural 23 and shifted. In Ember Guard my wisdom dropped to 21.

I noted the same behavior playing a single player campaign using your latest PrC pack.

So is it safe to assume that racial stat bonuses are not supposed to pass onto the shifted forms or is this a fixable bug?

I've done as much as I can with minimizing spell loss while polymorphing. What's left isn't fixable at all. Take my content out of your single player and try testing that. It's FAR worse than with my content.

You will have to live with what it is. My suggestion is to not pick a race a wisdom adjustment, do not use any items/feats that grant bonus slots, and do not use items for granting a wisdom bonus. That's about the only way to avoid spell loss.

Yea, druid wildshape is pretty bad without all of the fixes you have added over time. Thanks for all the improvements you made. cheers
