Just a question. I have found that the rage and greater rage being a huge part of the barbarians abilities are all but useless due to the fact that to get to the + 12 attribute bonus is fairly easy on the server. Is there anyway to allow this ability to take your bonus past 12 (atleast to 14 with greater, 6 being 2 highers than the 4 bonus from regular rage) or is there a cap that cant be over written?
To continue the dual weild vs. shield discussion with the advent of rapiers: rapiers are medium weapons which means that when used in the off hand, they result in an additional -2 to hit on all attacks. This does not deny their usefulness at all, but it is something to consider.
PS: Small toons weild rapiers two handed like all other med. weapons. PPS: The -2 should not be the case for large size toons, but I have not tested it and it should be tested since there are other issues with the dual weilding large toons. I just don't happen to have any large dual weilders.
I just realized why I have been getting a -2 penalty to attacks while in shapestrong Form. My greataxe is being considered an off hand large weapon with Great axe and shield and also with Great axe and no shield in shapestrong form.
Now the question is do all large forms get the -2 large off hand weapon penalty while using shield and large weapon? Or is it just a shapstrong penalty?
(( for now just putting it down as a quirk and rolling with it ))
I was wondering if I am already large size creature (stinger) does the 30 lvl's of barbarian actually do anything for me considering I can already use a 2 handed weapon and shield. Is there an additional str increase from size or is this an exercise in futility. Or would u suggest more lvl's as WM and rogue??
I get a -2 to attack in shape-strong form bashing the stone marker outside the church close to the docks and a -1 to attack while bashing the same object as a Minotaur.
I am guessing shape-strong is a Giant size? form making it larger than a Large sized character? and incurring another -1 to attack. I am not positive but the combat log is consistent
