Beastial Instinct (3.5e Flaw)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: This flaw is essentially a free feat for Monks and melee-wildshaping Druids. While any flaw can be gamed, and I believe that to be a problem inherent with UA's guidelines for flaws, this one is especially so because it literally has no effect on those two types of characters outside of being beneficial.

Let's take it to the talk page.

Beastial Instinct [General][edit]

You prefer to engage your foes close enough to smell their blood.
Effect: You suffer a -2 penalty to hit while using anything other than natural weapons or unarmed strikes.
Special: Like all flaws, DMs should restrict this one to characters for which it would actually be a flaw on a fundamental level. Most Monks and shapeshifting Druids, for example, would suffer no real ill-effect by taking this flaw. A Fighter or Rogue, however, would, even if they took Improved Unarmed Strike and dedicated their entire character around the concept. Unlike the aforementioned classes, such characters would be giving up a noteworthy aspect of their abilities, thus making it an actual flaw for them.
