Talk:Shield Warrior (3.5e Class)

Like the idea, but it's a little strong(for unoptimized play). Compared to a fighter, you get hefty (2+affordable enhancement, which costs half of what a weapon normally costs, then later +5, and later +2 more) bonuses to armor class, a good save and a bunch of little defense-oriented bonuses, in exchange for... feats that are partially made up for with weapon specialization and focus. Anyone playing a defender or tank would take it, and even some who play damage/defense would take the extra defensive capabilities and then focus on boosting damage otherwise. Again, this is unoptimized - if you pull out your ridiculous rulebooks and get 9d6 warrior sneak attack and x5 charge damage and power attack and whatever, you clearly are going to be a lot better at fighting than someone with less feats. However, it's a lot better than what I could likely make. --R2d2go (talk) 23:28, 29 March 2013 (MDT)

true but to have the bonuses be used as a weapon the shield actually has to be enchanted as a weapon as well as a shield. Shield attack goes off the same enchanting chart as any other weapon. It's still very much in development, I got to look at it half a dozen times prior to my time away. Tivanir (talk) 11:38, 30 March 2013 (MDT)
