Personally, I'd have loved a version of Hybrid Talent that you could take at least twice.
Personally, I'd have loved a version of Hybrid Talent that you could take at least twice.I don't think there's any chance of that happening.
Except for the fact that it is right in there. You just have to give up a paragon path for it.
I'm looking through this, and are there ANY differences in this version in comparison to the last playtest other than adding artificer?
From the updated character builder, it seems you can't take Hybrid talent more than once...-Enaloindir
I can't say I'm a fan of this system. Too many losses for only tiny gains. The best hybrids stay within their role, due to shared stats and similar powers... and most of the rest are useless. Who would want to give up all of their useful class features, and halfish of their powers, for half of the powers from another class, and maybe 1 class feature.
no, it wasn't present, would have like to seeSpecial: You can select Hybrid Talent more than once, it's effects do not stack, each time you choose Hybrid Talent it applies to a different talent choice.
I agree. I think the only way hybrid classes are at all interesting is allowing the hybrid talent feat to be taken more than once. Every cool thing I could think to do with hybrids was defeated due to only being able to take the feat once.
I think the heavy feat tax on hybrid characters would make up for the potential power gain, as the class features themselves are already scales back into hybrid versions.
Not all class features of the hybrid classes are scaled back. Many of them are full class features. There are also some hybrid classes where two of the hybrid talent options are well worth spending a feat on and would be considered amongst the best feats in the game if anyone can take them.
Oh, I did think of one other thing while I was typing this, which is: A hybrid character gets the Hybrid Talent feat as a bonus feat at level 1. (and can't take it more than once barring paragon hybrid as usual).At least that way you get a bit of oomph without giving up your level 1 feat. doesn't seem too gamebreaking.
