    Default The good, the bad, and the very ugly

    Let me just skip the baloney and get down to it:

    The morning lord iconic racial enhancements make NO sense.

    1. Racial bonus to int (clerics and cleric multiclasses don't need int)
    2. Int enhancement (the ONLY choice, for a non-int based class)
    3. Dex to damage with blunts (so we are focusing on INT, and Dex comes out of left field, bizarre!)
    4. Racial bonus to ranged sneak attack (copied from elf race, with no bonuses to bows, bizarre!)


    What is the thought process behind this silliness? If you want to make this Iconic special, give a bonus to WISDOM, with WISDOM to damage with blunts. Can keep ranged sneak attack as then there will be synergy with Zen archery. As it stands this is currently the stupidest race/class combo there is.

    I understand that Elves take a CON penalty, but why is the bonus to INT instead of WIS?

    So far I haven't found much that makes the Morninglord a class / race I must play. Seems sort of lacking at first glance. If this Iconic is supposed to Melee, can they get an auto granted THF or Cleave line?

    Default Sun Elves, please read the lore.

    In response to the above two replies, Morninglords are Sun Elves. Sun Elves get racial bonuses to intelligence not wisdom or dexterity. Although I am confused about the morningstars, Sun Elves are proficient with swords and bows as well. And also Morninglords are intended clerics, not melee.

    How is the Morninglord any different from a Human cleric then? A regular Cleric seems better all around

    Default Postive Energy Aura/Positive Energy Burst - No Regen?

    On the live servers, I have a Level 21 cleric with Postive Energy Aura/Positive Energy Burst; there the uses regenerate over time.

    With the Morninglord I created on Lamannia, it seems like the same enhancements don't regenerate over time...unless it takes a lot longer? Or maybe with the Morninglords the uses don't regen?

    There've been numerous times in dungeons where I could keep a party alive even if just using the Aura/Burst... I really hope you don't have to rest to get back your uses of them...
