So... I've read the thread a bit...

And if I understand correctly. The true-shifter changelings are nerfed... because there where able to get the abilities of the quick-shifters as well, for no extra cost? At least, part of the reason...

Ah, ok, fair enough. That's certainly reasonable.

In which case, huzzah! I like the new talent. Smile

Yes and no. There were two issues. First that the increase to eight racial trait-points made the ability to swap out all your traits much more powerful and versatile. Second, true shifters used to simply be strictly better than any other racial choice - as they could mirror another race perfectly for no cost after the first transformation into that race and stay in that form indefinitely.

While still able to pay a magic point to swap radials if they deemed.

Yeah... I really see what you mean about how the true-shifters can just completely mirror over species with ease... Through, the magic point restriction seems a little harsh, given how valuable and flexible a magic point is... through admittedly, I can see arguments as to that's the a justifiable cost.

Gonna have to do a lot of thinking on how this affects my character, that's for sure...

Right. When a race can mirror any other race with more advantages and versatility tacked on for barely any (if any) added cost... That's way too much. And being able to swap out all your racial traits on the fly should carry a cost at least as much as the Element of Magic. Painful, but necessary.

Also - Racial Updates are live guys! Thanks to all of you for some amazing work improving this core element of the system. The work done by this thread is a testament to why open development with a great community is such a wonderful way to go. Very Happy

True Shifter still needs the previously mentioned clarifications.

Would you mind restating them? I honestly lost track of what they were. A lot of things have happened in the race development.

Oh right, sure. That was like over half this thread ago.

The clarifications that were needed were, if you could end the effect at will and if you still had access to your own racial traits while under the effect. (My assumption would be yes and no but, it really does need to say.)
