I strongly disagree with the new balance level. I could see this being a high moderate or a low high, but low? Nowai. Compare and contrast to this feat.


This seems clearly moderate. The fact it mentions "lower power game option" seems to suggest it should have been as well, since we don't have a Very Low. I am going to alter it to moderate, change it if I am in the wrong. -- Eiji-kun (talk) 07:32, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Well, the history would indicate that Jota changed it to low, and then Gr7mm Bob snuck in and added a "lower power game option" and prerequisites. --Foxwarrior (talk) 07:39, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
I would disagree with Mr. Jota then. Say, is he still about? -- Eiji-kun (talk) 07:42, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
First and foremost, I disagree with Gr7mm Bob's edits, and have removed them. Second, to what are you comparing this that makes is seem Moderate? I find the damage bump to be both minimal and situational. -- Jota (talk) 04:10, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
When I think about Low, I think about things like toughness, skill focus, weapon focus (inb4 RNG), and the like. Typically classified by small bonuses to specific things that ultimately don't change anything. Adding +1 damage per die is actually substantial. Not High substantial, but certainly not useless. It's the kind of bonus one tries to get from things like the PF Orc and Draconic Bloodline arcanas, and grows in strength as you level (not something Low feats are known for). I compare this to the feat Craven, and that one is certainly Moderate.
Mostly, it's actually useful and any blaster should pick this up no questions asked. It's a good feat, but it's certainly not Low. -- Eiji-kun (talk) 04:21, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Reviewed base lines, changed to Moderate. -- Jota (talk) 04:23, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
