Finally i got to test the DDN. my group consists of only 3 of us at the moment-1 friend who is player only,friend who is primary GM and me ( secondary GM and player). This is written from my perspective as a player. We started with lv 1 characters.
Human shapeshifting druid
Dwarf Cleric of Warbringer-my character
First of, I have really good stats:
So,lets start. We begun separetd,but both of us had same path. One encounter vs 3 cr1 critters and one vs 2 cr1 critters. And while druid swept trough the first encounter with his thunder wawe and bear form, my lance of faith was slightly weak.
1d8 damage isn't that much but it's ok (old 2d6 is still better). I managed to drop two when third droped me to -4 (and i have AC 17). Second encounter went slightly better. Inflict is nasty spell. Even with save,2d8 is sweet. Rest was all role play.
I must say that combat is nice,smooth and fast. It goes very well. Skill and saves are very good,versatile and fun and it's very easy to switch from pathfinder to next.
As we leveld I found out that leveling charater is finally fast. No more skill or saves calculations. Raise hp,write new spell and we are ready to go.
And now we come to the part where my disapointment comes. We were scanning trough the spell list and I found out that cleric has only 1 offensive lv 1 and lv 2 spell and 1 cantrip. While standard 3.5/pathfinder cleric doesn't have more offensive spells,he has more spells per day,domain powers that can be nasty and more staying power with ability to replace prepared spells with cure and his channel energy. This cleric once he spends his 2 spells he is preatty much fighter.
To me it looks like this cleric is not as powerful as the 3.5/pathfinder one. But we are going to play more so i will see how it goes. This is only first impresion after all.
