Prerequisites[edit]

This looks like a Bard PrC, so it might be a good idea to add Bardic Music to the prerequisites. MorkaisChosen 09:21, 24 December 2007 (MST)

Rating[edit]

Power - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because it's really just not good. The BAB is worse than a bard's and the saves are too good and non-standard, which is perhaps the only redeeming feature of this class. It doesn't grant additional bard spells. It has multiple ability score dependency like few others, and the class abilities are rather weak. The damage is pathetic, and the fact that each ability offers two or three saves, all of which are static and relatively low, is just... ugh. Disrupt is probably the best ability, and it's the easiest save there is. Deafening Smash is also okay, but again, the saves are too low. Use Drum Kit (if I'm reading it right), offers 2d4+2d6+1d8+1d6+2d10+20 (Dexterity and Strength modifiers for each), which comes out to 51 damage on average at level 15, which is just weak, and while it does hit an area, it also hits your own party. It also gives several feats benefits with the drumsticks, which is another redeeming quality, although you still need the Two-Weapon Fighting tree to get extra attacks. The skills are okay, but the d4 hit dice sucks and overall there's just very limited offense. -- Jota 19:55, 8 August 2009 (MDT)

Wording - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because the punctuation and capitalization are all over the place. Drum Kit is confusing is hell, and it doesn't which kind of action each ability takes (although I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that means assume standard, but it would be nice to know). Also, Drum Kit mentions something about setting drums up? What is this? Also, how long the ear plugs can last, how many can exist simultaneously, and whether they count against the eight magical item limit are all things that need to be addressed. -- Jota 19:55, 8 August 2009 (MDT)

Formatting - 2.5/5 I give this class a 2.5 out of 5 because much of the preload is missing. The class hasn't been updated since the wiki's standards improved, and the class-specific weapons should have their own pages. There's no interwiki linking and the class abilities, which are nearly the whole of the class, are not up to par either. -- Jota 19:55, 8 August 2009 (MDT)

Flavor - 1.5/5 I give this class a 1.5 out of 5 because it's an interesting idea (sort of), but it's missing all of the flavor text except for that smidgen at the beginning. -- Jota 19:55, 8 August 2009 (MDT)
