View Full Version : Druid: wildshape feats

Not sure on what everyone else thinks but heres my 2 cents worth:

If I want to play in wolf(Bear) form and I get to winter wolf(Dire bear) I am going to shift into the better of the 2 i.e winter wolf or dire bear, which effectively leaves me with 2 feats not being used (wolf and bear)

Alternatively, if I only want to utilise fire and ice elemental and not wolf or bear, then that is effectively 4 feats lying dormant.

My suggestion would be to maybe open these up to Druid specific feats, kind of like the Arties have.

So If you wanted to only go with fire/ice ele's as a pure caster no melee, you could take extend, empower healing, augment summons etc. in place of the first 4 wildshape feats.

Will be interesting to see what the consensus will be :)

1. If that system is implemented wolf/bear will be a prereq. for the better versions so you'll have to pick them again.
2. I dont use sneak. You see I wanna free feat instead of it but it doesn't quite work like that.

My supposition (I may be wrong here) is that people are going to spec in 1 or the other
i.e wolf for speed, agility and SA possibly
which would have the prerq of wolf to get to winter wolf etc.

Bear for tanking etc which would have bear prereq for dire bear

and ele forms for pure casting possibly, I very much doubt people are going to try and spec in all 3. I would like to see them as
3 different paths maybe ( this is just an idea after playing numerous druids wipe after wipe :) )

After all some people may not be interested in wolf or bear
