Player Craftable with Tumble Bonus

Post by EvictionNotice » Sat Feb 15, 2020 12:13 pm

I enjoy many of the PC Craftables. But, a lot appear to have +2 or +5 Tumble.

Why? Only base ranks apply AC to your character and Tumble itself is a Set DC Check of 15 when running in combat, so anything above it is wasted.

Perhaps it would be more useful to replace a Tumble bonus with say.. +1 Reflex or +2 in the case of +5 Tumble items, to reflect the added dexterity and agility of the armour, whilst actually applying a benefit.

Some properties on craftables are actually there just to make the item harder to enchant/rune.

Some of them are items created in ANCIENT ARELITH.

Others are default NWN palette drops.

All tumble does w/o base ranks is help you avoid AOO (which is I guess useful.)

There is no deeper meaning to it beyond that. Items with tumble could be updated and not much would change.
If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen are defrocked, shouldn't it follow that cowboys would be deranged?

Avoiding an AOO is a fixed DC of 15

Yep.

I've CC'd 1 point before on a mage before just to avoid them with a little gear. It's not a very useful skill, however, for someone who is actually invested.

I get what you mean!

Fifteen years playing and I still learn something new.
