Hello,

Can you change your Stats when you use Lesser Reincarnation?

Case in point, I have a Lvl 9 Monk with CON 10. I'd like to push it to CON 12. Will I be able to achieve that goal with Lesser Reincarnation?

Thanks.

Yes. However, if that's the only thing you're looking at changing, I assume you've already tapped a +2 tome?


A character that undergoes Lesser Reincarnation retains their race, gender, alignment, and the class they selected at level one. They are permitted to re-spend their ability points, change their feat selection, re-allocate skill points, spells, etc., or are free to select a path. Unlike True Reincarnation, characters will retain all favor and experience, but reincarnate with the same number of build points of the current incarnation and must train the exact level progression of the old character.

No.

I've thought of getting one such Tome but they are rare or super expensive. So I'm thinking I'm better of using Lesser Reincarnation for now and use Tomes later, when and if I find them.

What do you suggest?

Are there any other adjustments you see you might make with the reincarnation?

Also, would you benefit from going with the pricier Greater Reincarnate for the 4 extra build points?

I do see your plan on reincarnating now, and holding open the option to tome up a little higher later. Not a bad idea.

Yes. I'll be able to get the Enhancements I currently am forbidden from getting thanks to my being asleep at the wheel at the time of my character's creation -- those Enhancements are critical for my toon's class, which is Monk.


Also, would you benefit from going with the pricier Greater Reincarnate for the 4 extra build points?

Sure, but at this point I cannot create 32 point characters.

It's also a question of getting what I need to have happen faster, relatively speaking. Tomes seem so far off to me, for some reason (I'd rather find them than purchase them too. It's more exciting that way, and, I feel, more Pen&Paper-like).

Thanks for the clarifications.
(btw, your collection of YouTube DDO videos is excellent. Keep it up!)
