    Default Henshin Mystic

    I was playing with Hensiyn mystic over the weekend and i quite enjoyed it. It could do with some speed to stick enhancements and wis to damage/attack but overall i liked it, perhaps rolled into the capstone as it doen't follow the PrE's flavour at the moment.

    Just an idea that i think would improve the flavour.

    You are stuck with fire as a damage element, i'd like to see some savant style flexability on the element chosen.
    I'd like to see Riddle of fire, incinerating wave and cauldron of flame changed to Riddle of elements, elemental wave and elemental tempest.
    When you take riddle of elements you select an element and then all the other enhancements affected by the element, like ki bolt & Lighting the candle, follow this element; much like taking a sorc savant or draconic incarnation dragon type.

    Elemental words already allows all element damage types to be augmented (its bugged, fire and ice vulnerability is swapped) so this change would make all the words useful dependant on Henshin Savant choice.

    Just an idea, Dex

    I would love to see a wisdom to-hit/damage mechanic for mystic. But, knowing the multitude of stuff monks get from high wisdom, it might be a bit overpowering. Seeing different elements would be nice, too, but that would require a lot of work to make everything a multiple enhancement selector, including the core abilities.

    I can't wait to TR my acrobat into a mystic on live!

    They can let you pick an element with the 1st core and then use the said element for damage for the next core enhancements.

    Just the opposite: It would be suboptimal. Given the flavor of the tree, WIS for attack/damage would be limited to quarterstaves. Then you'd be doing less damage than a STR build because you don't gain 1.5 WIS bonus damage per attack like you do with STR.

    If you have an acrobat on live, then take a closer look to the new acrobat enhancements. That tree is far superior than Henshin Mystic for quarterstaves.

    Except when it comes to Staff Training, Acrobats have to pay double the AP.

    It's not a big deal. You're going to spend 32 AP into Thief-Acrobat for the tier 5 ability and picking up plenty of solid abilities along the way:

    Thief-Acrobat (32)
    1 Acrobat
    2 Staff Training I
    3 Acrobatic III
    2 Staff Training II
    6 Quick Strike III
    6 Haste Boost III
    2 Staff Training III
    2 Strength I
    2 Staff Training IV
    2 Strength II
    2 any filler
    2 Staff Training V

    By the way if you haven't submitted a bug for Way of the Patient Tortoise, then please do so. It's not providing bonuses at level 3 and 9. The more people that submit the bug, the higher priority it will be.

    It isn't just way of the tortoise. All the animal paths are bugged in some way or another, except (maybe) badger.

    Thiiiiis makes me sad... Seriously, with Air and Water stance, I figured DDO's Henshin Mystics would have some focus on my favourite elements The only reason I was going to try one this time was because I figured it would be a genuine elemental warrior :P Fire is nice, but it shouldn't be the sole damage focus -_-

    @Devs: Step up Henshin and round out it's focus elemental abilities or remake it to be something worth while, please. <3
