Races of Eberron

I do feel like the shapeshifting should probably have a use limit. If there’s a balance issue, fix it elsewhere. Am a super big Warforged nerd. If you can in good faith and confidence claim that a race is balanced under the assumption that it has to get LESS magic items than other members in the party, and that play behavior will actually reflect that, then I’m afraid you’re deluded.

I would also make clear that the ability works with medium armor master, heavy armor master, and the defensive fighting style.

Log in or sign up in seconds. Not by much, but by enough. Dark Alliance Baldur’s Gate: Good point on the clothing though.

I also think you’re downplaying the impact of AC and HP loss. The designers eberrln explicitly stated that the game is balanced with the assumption of NO magic items.

Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. That’s a pretty niche situation. There are comparisons to be made, and in all of them, the warforged is an egregious mistake of race-to-race balancing and design. Jesse Decker is a designer for Wizards of the Coast, Inc. Especially since it cant stack with stuff like forge cleric.


Putting paid to the notion that a frostbrand is “higher” than a flametongue, the comparison still stands for whatever you want to apply to it. Looking for Invisible casters or hiding Rogues mostly. Combined with their Mark the Scent and bonus skill, and Wildhunt Shifters have the strongest suite of abilities out of the 3. It’s just enough that it makes you think “wow, Warforged are tough. In addition to matching the AC anyone else gets by getting their maximum magical armor bonus at the minimum level they can get it, and in a no Strength required, weightless, wear-it-while-sleeping form, they also gets some of the best bits of elves and dwarves, excellent stat boosts, and solid additional racial traits, especially the Envoy.

Immunity to sleep and exhaustion are pretty good, but probably won’t come up all that often, and ability to keep watch during rest to me, doesn’t seem all that great since someone should always be on watch anyway. Those seem to be very niche and uncommon situations.

You can do this for other purposes too like if one of you needs to not take a long rest at all vs the other party members for some reason, as long as you’re a class that sberron what they need back on short reststhey’re just less common. Mot having to eat or drink also hardly comes up, since few DMs track that sort of stuff.

Slightly different, but there’s pros and cons to each. Beasthide Shifters are going to become the go-to for Barbarians. Official play assumes characters can’t get Plate until 5th level. So that’s equivalent to full plate Official play assumes characters 35 get Plate until 5th level. Morgan Mcleod rated it really liked it Jul 07, So I am left to give the book a 6.


Con bonus plus temp HP that gets Rage damage mitigation is pretty great. Lists with This Book. May 08, Phil rated it liked it Shelves: There are some interesting NPCs that the book introduces, and some race specific feats and such, but in terms of giving the setting more depth this supplement fell woefully short. I’d rather they just have a free tool. A lot of the historical and psychological traits these newer races have are really fascinating to me.

Jacob Possin rated it really liked it Feb 26, Being able to breathe I disagree with – there are tons of situations, even in official modules, where “impassable” barriers are created through the use of bodies of water, poisonous mists, buildings full of smoke, etc. I mean, there are some things in the book that are interesting. Both have their situational benefits, one being real, but one providing clothes to match.

The half orc gets the same number of ASI’s but no flexibility with them, a skill that they don’t get to pickdarkvision, and a 35. boost to damage ot durability. Once per short rest feels right. What other race has abilities that even come close to matching the warforged racial ability? I would disagree that the other features are mostly flavor stuff. It’s comparable to a Warlock getting infinite Disguise Self at level 2 via Invocation
