Talk:Rito (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Marasmusine's Meter: Fokka
- ½: Ability Score Increase (+2, +2)
- 1: Ancestral Arms
- 1: Honed Skills (Skill Proficiency)
- ½: Fleet of Foot
- ½: Cantrip
- ½: High Leap
- = 4 (an ideal score); possibly 3 ½ (slightly underpowered) depending on how much you value Fleet of Foot and High Leap
I'm not going to score Labored Flight, because it's such a powerful and controversial capability anyway. In my opinion it somewhat defies this scoring system. - Guy (talk) 13:08, 16 September 2017 (MDT)
- The main reason why there can’t be just a flat flying speed for the Rito is because of the overall effect flight has on the game, especially at lower levels. Take a look at the 5e aarakocra race, for example. They have an armor restriction and one other feature. Because this race has multiple traits besides flight, the flight trait needs to be restricted to maintain balance. EpicBoss99 (talk) 11:24, 10 August 2018 (MDT)
- As EpicBoss already said, it's primarily to fit 5e's sense of balance. Even WotC acknowledged aarakocra are overpowered. It's the only first-party race that is completely banned from Adventurers League, and it's due entirely to unrestricted flight below 5th level.
- Play The Wind Waker and examine how rito's wings work in that game. It's clear these rito can't hold anything in their hands while flying, let alone something like a lance.
- Even if you've only played Breath of the Wild, which may be the case, you can see that being able to shoot arrows in flight is an advanced skill which takes a great deal of talent or training. After all, a rito has to essentially have to stop flying and start falling to shoot an arrow. The race-class "rito sharpshooter" is intended to represent that training, though a racial feat might be balanced enough as a substitute.
- If anyone dislikes this version of rito, there is another version on this wiki that is functionally more similar to the "advanced" BotW rito: Rito, Variant (5e Race). Consider using that race. If that still isn't good enough, you could always use the racial traits of WotC's aarakocra race and call it rito. - Guy 05:56, 11 August 2018 (MDT)
Cold Weather Resistance
Would it make sense for the rito to have resistance to cold weather? After all, snowquill armor is made from rito feather for Hylians, wich could mean they don´t need it. Not cold damage, but cold weather. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gen (talk • contribs) . Please sign your posts.
- It would, especially for the highland subrace. That's the one based specifically on Rito from Breath of the Wild. Such a feature seems less warranted for coastal rito since in The Wind Waker they live on a tropical, volcanically-active isle. So, I took the liberty of giving highland ritos a version of goliath's Mountain Born feature. Thank you for the suggestion. - Guy 08:32, 22 September 2018 (MDT)
