Undead + Discipline of the Dragon
« on: July 20, 2015, 10:19:30 PM »
A player is building a Mummy Monk for a game I'm starting, and C2 of DotD is strictly 2/3 of C3 of Undead. I'm considering letting them swap out C2 of DotD just to avoid the overlap - my first thought is to bring over C2 of Crane, but I was wondering if folks had other suggestions or had this come up in their own games?

C1 of Sentient Construct vs C2 of Battle's Tempering
C1 of Dragon vs C3 of Air Elemental

This seems to be in the system all over the place.

True, this is just the example that's popped up in my particular game. I understand it's not the Worst Thing Ever, but I figure if I can cobble together a solution that makes the player feel more like he's getting the full suite of abilities, it would be nice. I suppose this might be a Homebrew topic in some ways. *shrug*

If you must swap out a defensive C2 ability for something else, I'd suggest Hard to Break or Not-Evasion from Path of Ancestors/Battle's Tempering.

I'm worried about using Hard to Break or Evasion since that's just DotD C1. Mystify, do you have something specific you think would be better than Crane's C2?
