Talk:Chameleon (5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
I'm trying not to be rude by saying this, but can you explain to me why this is better than the minor illusion cantrip? other than duration?
- I don't think this is actually an illusion, perhaps it should be changed to transmutation. The text says the caster actually turns into an object. Marasmusine (talk) 01:39, 18 August 2015 (MDT)
- That would make more sense. Still, 3rd level seems a bit high. Maybe 2nd?
- If it's a transmutation, what senses does the caster have while transmuted? most likely, they are meant to 'retain all normal senses', but I think those details are important. --Entropicscholar (talk) 13:01, 20 August 2015 (MDT)
- The conflict in wording definitely needs to be addressed. As Marasmusine says it fits more as a Transmutation spell, as it changes the casters physical form. However, the ability to "see through the illusion" doesn't fit this. It would make sense as a polymorph/shapechange effect, and really needs to define what senses/etc the caster retains (movement speed, sight, hearing, etc) whilst changed.
- The additional conflict of "the object acts like a normal object of that type, its damage threshold, AC, and HP, with the later stated break it as if it had 1 HP, a damage threshold of 0, and an AC of 5 only causes confusion, as these two statements are heavily in conflict. It needs to be one or the other, not both.--Kahz (talk) 03:30, 9 October 2016 (MDT)
