Talk:Vampire Hunter (3.5e Prestige Class)

From D&D Wiki

I think the heart seeker ability is too weak, and the fanatical assault is useless without the increased damage from monk class levels. One solution is to instead give them extra attacks with Stakes, or other wooden piercing weapons, or perhaps treating their unarmed attacks as wooden piercing weapons. Also, seeing an increase in unarmed damage as per monk on that would be nice. high BAB, an ability every level, and 2 high saves is a bit over powered .--Ganre 09:29, 3 April 2009 (MDT)

Ganre, this class was designed largely with three classes in mind: paladins, duskblades and rangers. They have a full BAB and full spellcasting. A part of Fanatical Assault that I forgot to mention was that it also gives lower non-proficiency penalties for improvised weapons. You also may not realize that the flurry in question is NOT just with unarmed attacks? However, extra attacks using stakes might be nice... In case you're wondering, there are actually TWO paths, one for casters, and one for non-casters which will be coming soon. As for Heartseeker, I dare you to come up with a better solution to the problem, since everybody on this wiki has a beef with "Called Shot Rules". Mythos Specialist 16:30, 15 April 2009 (MST)

Martial Variant[edit]

For anybody who wants to know, I've started putting up a non-casting path for this class. As you can see, I upped the hit die, and added martial adept abilities instead of spellcasting. If the hit die seems too weak, I can up that to d12, I was also thinking of adding a 5%/level-based chance to negate special attacks of undead as part of a warrior-path vampire hunter's Strong Vitality class feature. If so, I would most likely rename said feature. -- Mythos 16:18, 14 July 2009 (MDT)


So, just looking at the spellcaster one, it's over-powered. I suggest lowering the hit die to d6, and only giving spellcasting levels every other level. Connery55 15:12, 9 July 2009

Overpowered? How? It's designed to be used with duskblades, rangers, and paladins, not to mention, it's designed for campaigns that use Tome classes... If you don't like it, don't use it. Furthermore, if you're going to go around waving the OP flag, back it up with reasoning. -- Mythos 14:57, 13 July 2009 (MDT)
