If you could change a NWN mechanic….

  • What would it be?
    (If time, bugs .haks and such were not an issue)

    Mine, I'd give wizards and sorcerers a magical weak and short ranged, ranged attack when they are wielding a staff. Give it the speed of a crossbow and low attack. But it'd make much more sense then every spellcaster packing a mechanical crossbow 😎

  • I'd change the classes from 3.0 rules to 3.5 and combine the social skills into just one, intimidation and lying are both forms of persuasion after all.

    So much, so hard to pick!

    I would unwind all CoA's ancient scripts without having nwn break down and the server blow up.

  • Remove Hold Person from the module.

  • There should be a command to withdraw (run away without aoo) or to take a 5ft step backwards (to disengage, for example to drink a potion) while the same monster is still fighting someone else (without provoking AoO).

    I'd make cantrips able to be cast infinite number of times (cure minor wounds could be a balance issue, but you could either increase it's casting time, or remove it, or make this -not- to apply to it).

    Ranger closer to 3.5 ranger, or at least give him more options (ie, pick between dual wield, point-blank&rapidshot, and a third option maybe?)

    Make counterspelling more viable in CoA's level range (currently viable as long as enemies cast 3rd circle spells or lower, or you reach lvl 11 - counterspelling lvl 4 and 5 spells are is really hard&inefficient)

  • Make a counterspell quickslot!

  • @AronFF:

    Make a counterspell quickslot!

    YES! grumbles

  • Disguises?

  • Z axis for climb and flight.

  • Writes down an endless list
    And more quick bars. Never enough quick bars. As a caster you need even more.

    I would add the NWN2 spellcasting HUD thing, were your prepped spells are displayed on a little panel that can be clicked to cast.

    That radial thing is just bonkers.

  • no way, love the radial, taking it out was one of the many many massive mistakes of NWN2

  • A feat that gives you the option to mount and ride any animal, like those giant spider-riding goblins

    No seriously I want it

  • I've never understood counter spelling enough to use it but the seperate hotkey thing for spells from NwN2 was pretty handy.

  • @cadiz_stoker:


    Nail on head. Character name changes to something generic and you cannot click on the text avatar to PM the player. Complete anonymity. "Bandit", "Werewolf" etc.

  • Disguises would be cool but then you would need the whole mechanics if being able to see through them as well

  • yeah. It's all possible, technically. I really don't have the time to even try any tests though. But yeah, can all be done, even the not clicking on portrait part. (Thanks Blank)

  • A few:
    5 foot step
    Counterspelling that's more approriate for the level range
    mounts would be awesome too

    Nothing revolutionary, I know, but it'd be nice to have.

  • I could actually create a counter spelling thing for the gap in the spell level ranges. Basically use Lesser spell breach as the universal counter spell for that level. It's not even -that- hard to script it.

  • can you create a dot command for counter-spell stance we could quickslot?
