Talk:Battlemage (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
Power - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because the DR advancement is far too high. Also, it's getting alot of feats. This is off set by the low base attack, but the argument stands. Also, no class but wizard should get specialization without a very good reason, it seems like it was put there to meet a prereq for another prestige class. --Ganre 22:53, 5 May 2008 (MDT)
Wording - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because while it starts off as a good read, the spelling errors bring the score down a bit. Also, it's clear that the DR is a copy/paste from dwarven defender, as you left the name of that class in the description of it. Also, toughness is listed twice on the prereqs. --Ganre 22:53, 5 May 2008 (MDT)
Formatting - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because everything is properly capitalized, bolded, ect., however, a lot of it has been copy pasted from the SRD, and it's not really appropriate in the context(such as the several see belows in the specialization section).Also, it could be linked better(as in, at all). --Ganre 22:53, 5 May 2008 (MDT)
Flavor - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because it's a good idea, and I genuinely like it, but you need to find a way to make it different the the other armor casting classes, with out trying to over-power it --Ganre 22:53, 5 May 2008 (MDT)
Formatting - 1/5: I give this a one out of five on formatting because this does not follow the preload in any way. --Green Dragon 00:26, 6 May 2008 (MDT)
Class is 1 level long, 3 at most.
This class stops at level 1. Level 2 you -might- take if you're really worried about spell failure (but there are other ways to get rid of it without losing a spellcaster level). You'd never go past level 3, because getting Combat Casting as a bonus feat is a totally laughable tradeoff when you lose a spellcaster level. Surgo 11:42, 7 September 2008 (MDT)
In Genera-1/5: its almost as cheesy and overbalanced as the warmage in the complete arcane book. -Tyraxor
- Warmage is one of the worst classes in the game, how is it cheesy?
Power - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because it's overpowered (in 6 levels it gains 3 feats and it can have heavy armor and shields) --Turillazzo 10:15, 22 July 2009 (MDT)
Forgive me, as I am not familiar with other "armored casting classes," but couldn't you just reduce that caster's chance of Arcance Failure by 5% per Battlemage level? This would offset the desire to take only 1 or 2 levels of the Prestige class and stop for at least one reason. -- Cthulhu Kid 14 December 2010
Power - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because if I have read it correctly you will at a very early stage begin to ignore spell failure. I think that totally ignoring spell failure is a pretty strong feature, and you get it at level 2-3. I would suggest maybe scale it a bit more in the form of percentage deduction like lowering the spell failure of certain types of armor by 2% pr level? And why make light, medium and heavy armor a requirement for the class? doesn't that eat up 3 feats most use on metamagic feats in stead? --07:37, 30 November 2011 (MST)
Wording - 2/5 I give this class a 1 out of 5 because most of it is clearly copy-pasted from other places. Remember to think of your work as a school assignment, you get better grades if the teacher cant see you stole everything from someone els ;) --07:37, 30 November 2011 (MST)
Formatting - 1/5 I give this class a 1 out of 5 because it doesn't use the template for prestige classes which you can get [her] by filling out the prestige class space. Then It will create a page with all the standards you need. -- 07:37, 30 November 2011 (MST)
Flavor - 0/5 I give this class a 0 out of 5 because there really aren't any flavor any where. --07:37, 30 November 2011 (MST)
Power - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because having modified the abilities to be more reasonable, it remains a powerful prestige class but is not impossible or game-breaking. --126.96.36.199 13:05, 14 November 2012 (MST)
Wording - 4/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because I reviewed the text and grammar according to standard English rules and made sure that the concepts were explained thoroughly and made sense. --188.8.131.52 13:05, 14 November 2012 (MST)
Flavor - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because having adjusted it to make more logical sense and not be overpowered, I think it will add good dimension to a caster prestige option. --184.108.40.206 13:05, 14 November 2012 (MST)
Balance - 1/5 I give this class a 1 out of 5 because this class has a great 1:1 BAB as well as full arcane spellcasting progression! Too stronk by itself, not to mention that the class abilities are piled on top of all that.
Wording - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because needs editing.
Flavor - 1/5 I give this class a 1 out of 5 because why am I not simply playing a Magus or a Hexblade.
