/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

(1) Character Creation

What is the optimal Shifter build?  There are as many answers as there are to
the question of what constitutes an optimal Pizza build.  But there are some
guidelines to work with.  To wit:

(1.1) Race

Since racial stat bonuses/penalties are largely overridden by the Shapes you
take, this more than any other class can be determined for purely roleplaying
reasons.  That said, here's some commentary on the races available.

(1.1.1)  Human

While the bonus Feat at 1st level and the extra Skill points are very handy, the
primary benefit is the ability to multiclass beyond Druid/Shifter without an XP
penalty (subject to the Shifter XP penalty bug, of course -- see Appendix F).

(1.1.2)  Elf

Stat modifications are largely overridden, and you'll be subject to an XP
penalty unless you're a Druid/Shifter or Druid/Shifter/Wizard.  Keens Senses is
very handy, however, as well as Listen, Search, and Spot.  Low-light vision (or
better) can be had by taking the appropriate Shape.

(1.1.3)  Dwarf

A bonus to CN which is often overridden, and a penalty to CH which never is.
However, the racial abilities like Stonecunning and Hardiness vs. Spells/Poison
translate well into all Shapes.  You'll be subject to an XP penalty unless
you're a Druid/Shifter or Druid/Shifter/Fighter.

(1.1.4)  Halfling

Stat modifications are largely overridden, as well as Small Stature, but Move
Silently, Listen, Lucky, and Fearless translate well.  You'll be subject to an
XP penalty unless you're a Druid/Shifter or Druid/Shifter/Rogue.

(1.1.5)  Half-Orc

A bonus to ST which is almost always overridden, coupled with penalties to IN
and CH which almost never are.  Darkvision (or better) can be had by choosing
the proper Shape, and you'll be subject to an XP penalty unless you're a
Druid/Shifter or Druid/Shifter/Barbarian.  This would seem to be the only race
which offers no tangible benefits, only drawbacks.  Nothing serious, however, so
if it fits with your roleplaying go for it.

(1.1.6)  Gnome

Stat modifications are largely overridden, as well as Small Stature, but others
like Hardiness vs. Illusions, Offensive/Defensive training, etc., translate well
into most Shapes.  Low-light vision (or better) can be had by taking the
appropriate Shape.  You'll be subject to an XP penalty unless you're a
Druid/Shifter or Druid/Shifter/Wizard.

(1.1.g)  Half-Elf

No stat modifications, no bonus Feats or Skills at level up, but shares the same
ability benefits as Elves, with the major bonus of freedom to multiclass at will
beyond Druid/Shifter.

(1.2) Statistics

Each Shifter shape has one or more statistics set, plus natural and spell-like
attacks available.  Note that if your natural stat is higher than the shifted
form's stat, yours will be decreased (most of the time) while shifted.
Therefore, the only reason to put points into Strength, Dexterity, or
Constitution is to gain Feats.  So, starting with the premise that we don't want
a bonus or a penalty on those three, we can begin with:

   ST:10  DX:10  CN:10  IN:   WS:   CH:

That leaves (assuming a human character) 24 points to play with.  Now, determine
the Feats you'll want to have in the long run:

(1.3) Planning For Feats

   See Section 6 for detailed descriptions of Feats.  Following each Feat is a
   list of Shapes which already have it.

(1.3.1) Melee

   Cleave: ST 13+ (Epic Drider, Epic Drow, Risen Lord, and Death Slaad)
   Deflect Arrows: DX 13+
   Disarm: IN 13+ (Lizardfolk Whipmaster, Epic Lizardfolk Whipmaster)
   Dodge: DX 13+ (Epic Drow Warrior, Kobold Commando, Epic Kobold Commando,
   Rakshasa)
   Expertise: IN 13+
   Great Cleave: ST 13+
   Improved Disarm: IN 13+
   Improved Expertise: IN 13+
   Improved Parry: IN 13+
   Improved Stunning Fist (Epic): DX 19+, WS 19+
   Improved Whirlwind Attack (Epic): IN 13+, DX 23+
   Mobility: DX 13+
   Spring Attack: DX 13+
   Stunning Fist: DX 13+, WS 13+
   Whirlwind Attack: DX 13+, IN 13+ (Epic Lizardfolk Whipmaster, Risen Lord)

(1.3.2) Ranged Attacks

   Rapid Shot: DX 13+
   Zen Archery: WS 13+

(1.3.3) Monk

   Circle Kick: DX 15+

(1.3.4) Clerics & Paladins

   Divine Might: CH 13+, ST 13+
   Divine Shield: CH 13+, ST 13+

(1.3.5) Door/Chest Bashing

   Improved Power Attack: ST 13+

(1.3.6) Epic Shapes

   Construct Shape (Epic): WS 27+
   Dragon Shape (Epic): WS 30+
   Outsider Shape (Epic): WS 25+

Don't take ST, DX, or CN any higher than you have to in order to gain access to
the Feats you want, because they're often overridden by your Shapes.  Then fill
in IN, WS, and CH as you desire.  Keep in mind that to get the Outsider,
Construct, or Dragon Shapes your Wisdom will have to be very high.  If you think
you'll be happy with Undead Shape (which only requires you to be an Epic
Shifter), you can buff IN and CH pretty high.

(1.4) Shifter Builds

At a minimum, your Shifter career will include 5 levels of Druid.  That's enough
for a couple 3rd level spells (with Wisdom bonus) and a natural wildshape
ability.  Also, since you can't be an Epic Shifter (11th level Shifter) without
being an Epic Character (21 total levels), you'll need at least 5 more levels of
Druid or something...else.

(1.4.1) The Pure Shifter build

You are a Shifter.  Whatever dim memory of your Druid roots you retain is only
what you consider the abilities of your first Shape (the one you happened to be
born in).  You need to maximize your Wisdom at all costs in order to get the
better Epic Shapes.  You don't remember what your human Strength is, and who
cares?  As a minotaur, you can carry a *ton* of stuff.  The purest Shifter you
can get is Druid 10/Shifter 30.  A more balanced approach might be Druid
20/Shifter 20.  Note that Dragon Form will use both your Druid levels and your
Shifter levels for determining the strength of your breath weapon, but pure
Druids who take Dragon Form can never be quite as good at it as Shifters.  Flame
on!

   Recommended   ST:10  DX:10  CN:10  IN:13  WS:18  CH:11

(1.4.2) The Druid/Shifter/Monk build

You've already got Cleave at first level (Monk), but boosting DX and IN to 13
opens up a range of available Feats which are quite attractive, while still
allowing a decent WS (which adds to your AC for ALL Shapes, remember, even if
you were wearing armor when you Shifted) and a small CN and CH bonus.  Later on,
you might choose to boost DX two more to get Circle Kick, but that's your
choice.  Also, almost 2/3 of your Shapes will are classified as unarmed, so they
benefit from your better attacks, Flurry Of Blows, and Stunning Fist.  Your high
Wisdom does double duty as an AC bonus, but you pay the triple-classing BAB
penalty (unless you keep your classes to a multiple of 4, like Druid 8/Shifter
12/Monk 4).  Altogether a very strong build.  Humans and Half-Elves can get a
lot of mileage out of a single level of Monk (Cleave, AC bonus, Flurry Of Blows,
Stunning Fist, and the Monk Attack Bug -- see Appendix B) at very little cost.

   Recommended   ST:10  DX:13  CN:12  IN:13  WS:16  CH:12

(1.4.3) The Druid/Shifter/[Fighter-type] build

This will work with Barbarian (Rage stacks bonuses on your already elevated
stats), Blackguard (sneak attacks and a summoned fiend), Fighter (Feats galore,
including Weapon Specialization), Ranger (although your dual-wielding is largely
wasted), Paladin (double-duty on the Wisdom bonus), Champion Of Torm (Feats
galore, but no Weapon Specialization), Dwarven Defender (stat boosts on your
already elevated stats, plus damage reduction).  It doesn't tend to work well
with Weapon Master, since you can only choose from Druid weapons for Weapon Of
Choice.  It is incompatible with Arcane Archer (no arcane spells).  You benefit
from the fighters' better BAB table progression (keep in mind that the number of
attacks you have at 20th level is the same you'll have at 40th) at the cost of
Shifter power and Druid spells, and a wide variety of armor and weapons to
choose from.  To achieve BAB +16 (and therefore 4 attacks per round), you'll
need to take at least 10 Fighter-type levels in your first 20 levels (i.e.,
Druid 5/Fighter 10/Shifter 5).  Boost Strength for Cleave and Greater Cleave,
Intelligence for Expertise and Disarm, and Dexterity for Dodge and its
descendants.  Boost Constitution for extra HP since it's least often overridden,
and don't boost Wisdom excessively.  You'll have a harder time getting the
higher Epic Shapes, but you'll have one nasty Risen Lord, Vampire, and Spectre.
Weapon Specialize in Scythe and in Unarmed Combat for bonus nastiness.  Go forth
and slay.

   Recommended   ST:13  DX:13  CN:14  IN:13  WS:14  CH:10

(1.4.4) The Druid/Shifter/[Rogue-type] build

This will work for Rogues (Sneak Attack, Improved Evasion, Use Magic Device),
Assassins (Death Attack), Harper Scouts, and Shadowdancers (although their
primary draw, Hide In Plain Sight, is already included in the Kobold Commando).
Since you don't have to worry about boosting Strength, Dexterity, or
Constitution, you can concentrate on boosting Intelligence for scads of Skill
points and Charisma for Use Magic Device and Persuade.  The nice thing about
using the many Skills available to a Rogue is that you can tailor your Shape to
whichever stat you need to perform the Skill.  Need stealth?  Red Wyrmling has
good starting Dexterity, and Kobold Commando just oozes stealth.  Need to pick
locks?  The Mindflayer's Intelligence boost gives you +4.  And since your armor
is merged into your Shape, you can pile on the heaviest armor you can wear and
it doesn't affect your stealthiness at all.  Imagine a minotaur with a sneak
attack.  Now imagine a stealthy Death Slaad with a sneak attack.  Now stop
drooling.
Note that Bards CAN sing while Shifted!

   Recommended   ST:10  DX:10  CN:12  IN:16  WS:14  CH:14

(1.4.5) The Druid/Shifter/[Arcane-type] build

I confess I don't know if this is a viable build.  On the one hand, your primary
stat is either Intelligence (Wizard) or Charisma (Sorcerer), neither of which is
overridden by your Shapes.  On the other hand, you cannot cast spells while
Shifted.  And you'll have an absolute dearth of armor and weapons to merge into
your Shapes.  Perhaps a strategy of buffing to the max, then Shifting, would
work, but to try to cast offensive spells AND Shift seems to be trying to be
good at two things, and excellent at neither.  In the Underdark, you need to be
excellent to survive.  Anyone who has done a Wizard or Sorcerer Shifter, let me
know.  Note that Pale Master and Dragon Disciple Shifters are not possible,
since you don't have arcane spells as a Druid/Shifter.

   Recommended   ST:10  DX:10  CN:14  IN:16  WS:14  CH:12 (Wizard version)
   Recommended   ST:10  DX:10  CN:14  IN:12  WS:14  CH:16 (Sorcerer version)

(1.4.6) The Druid/Shifter/Cleric build

Excellent buffing spells and armor choices, and the ability to turn undead make
for a good match for Shifters.  Your BAB won't be any higher (and may, in fact,
be lower), but the benefits probably outweigh the disabilities of not being able
to cast healing spells quite so spontaneously any more.  Furthermore, Wisdom is
a shared stat that does double duty, and you don't have to boost Strength,
Dexterity, or Constitution so you can concentrate on Charisma for Turning
Undead.  Begone, Foul Spawn, lest I unleash upon you the Flurry of Bad Puns!

   Recommended   ST:10  DX:10  CN:10  IN:12  WS:16  CH:16

/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

(2) What equipment is melded into Shifted Shapes?

Weapon - Yes, although they don't always show in the Character screen.
Offhand Weapon - No.
Armor - Everything except Base Armor Class.  Bonuses to AC, skill modifications,
        and bonus Feats are melded.
Shields - Everything except Base Armor Class.  Bonuses to AC, skill
          modifications, and bonus Feats are melded.  Shields are considered
          armor for purposes of which Shapes will merge them.  Note that a bug
          in the merge script does not allow merging of Tower Shields.
Gloves - No.  Sorry, Monks.
Gauntlets and Bracers - No.
Helmets - Yes.  Helmets are considered armor for purposes of which Shapes will
          merge them.
Cloaks - Yes.
Belts - Yes.
Rings - Yes.
Amulets - Yes.
Boots - Yes.

/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

(3) Do Monk abilities transfer to Shapes?

Unarmed Attack - Unarmed Shapes use the Monk Unarmed BAB chart (an additional
                 attack each 3 levels, versus 5 for other classes).  Shapes that
                 use a weapon do not.  Monk unarmed damage is not.
Wisdom AC bonus - Yes.  With 30 WS (to attain Dragon Shape), that's
                  a whopping +10 to AC for a single level of Monk.  Sweet!
Stunning Fist - Yes, for unarmed Shapes only.
Flurry Of Blows - Yes, for unarmed Shapes only.
Cleave, etc. - Of course, just as if you had selected those Feats at levelup.
Weapon Focus, Unarmed - Yes, for unarmed Shapes only.

/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

(4) Unarmed vs. Armed Shapes

Since there are so many Shapes that do not use weapons (including some of the
better melee fighters such as Dire Tiger and Death Slaad), it might be a good
idea to take Weapon Focus, Weapon Specialization, Improved Critical and any
other Weapon XXX Feats that can be chosen for Unarmed Combat.  For the same
reason, Monk makes a natural choice of tertiary class for the Druid/Shifter.

The Shapes which are classified as unarmed are Wyrmling (All), Harpy, Gargoyle,
Basilisk, Manticore, Dire Tiger, Medusa, Mindflayer, Vampire, Spectre, Death
Slaad Lord, Golem (All), and Dragon (All).

Shapes which wield a weapon are Minotaur, Drider, Drow Warrior, Lizardfolk
Whipmaster, Kobold Commando, Risen Lord, Azer Chieftain, and Rakshasa.

Wyrmling Shape (Red/Blue/Black/White/Green)
   Your first Shifter shape.
   Red is the best in melee and has the best breath weapon, unless you come
   across an opponent with fire immunity or a vulnerability to one of the other
   elements.  Immunity from paralysis and True Seeing helps you last long enough
   to choose a more appropriate Shape if available.  Even after attaining
   Greater Wild Shape IV, I still find myself spending most of my time as a Red
   Wyrmling.

(5.2) Greater Wildshape II [Shifter Level 3]

3/day (unlimited at Shifter level 7)

(5.2.1) Harpy Shape

She's got slightly better damage potential than a Red Wyrmling, but her real
benefit is her Captivating Song against low-Will warriors, Wizards (but not
Sorcerors), Rogues, Shadowdancers and the like.

   Unarmed: Yes
   Merge: Armor, Items

(5.2.2) Gargoyle Shape

Damage Resistance is the major draw of this Shape, combined with the best CN
bonus and AC (tied with the Harpy).  Useful for defensive slugfests against non-
magic-wielding hordes, you'll shrug off their pitiful little damage as you tear
through them at your leisure.
Gargoyles are consistently at the bottom of the damage potential lists, so be
sure to buff your ST for additional damage and To Hit bonuses.

   Special: !!! NOTHING !!! due to a game bug (see Appendix D)
   Unarmed: Yes
   Merge: Armor, Items

(5.2.3) Minotaur Shape

Combining the best damage potential of the II's with a +1 weapon to get past
Damage Resistance, along with the best HP bonus and a hefty CN bonus for major
hit points, this is a natural early choice for wading into the middle of the
melee.  Watch his pitifully low AC, though.  If you have a naturally high DX, he
makes a most excellent tank for early encounters, and he can carry a ton of
loot.

   ST:19  DX:    CN:17  IN:    WS:    CH:

(5.3) Greater Wildshape III [Shifter Level 5]

   3/day (unlimited at Shifter level 9)

(5.3.1) Basilisk Shape

While his bonus HP are on par with the Manticore, he doesn't get the Manticore's
CN bonus and his bite attack won't put fear into nearly anyone, he does
have an excellent ranged attack against low-Fort spellcasters, Rogues, Bards and
the like.  Kinda hard to think straight when you're stoned, dude.
He does have the best Natural AC of the III's however, so if you have good DX he
could be a serious defensive tank, but then again none of your items merge so it
could be a wash.

   ST:16  DX:    CN:    IN:    WS:    CH:
   AC: 20 (+10 Natural)
   HP: +30
   To Hit: BAB+3

   Unarmed: Yes
   Merge: Armor

(5.3.2) Drider Shape

If the spellcasters seem to be making their saves against the Basilisk's gaze,
you may find the Drider's Spell Resistance useful.  He's also got a +2 weapon
for bypassing Damage Resistance and can cast Darkness at will for unseen
escapes.

   ST:16  DX:16  CN:15  IN:    WS:    CH:

   Unarmed: No
   Merge: Weapon, Armor, Items

(5.3.3) Manticore Shape

The best stat upgrades, plus major HP (tied with the Basilisk) and three attacks
for pretty good damage make this by far the best melee fighter of the III's.
Oh, yeah, don't forget the tail spikes -- it's one of the few distance attacks
you have.

(5.4) Humanoid Shape [Shifter Level 7]

3/day (unlimited at Shifter level 11)

(5.4.1) Drow Warrior Shape

One of the few Shapes that modifies your existing stat (CN) rather than setting
it to a fixed value (the other is the Mindflayer).  Against spellcasters the 26%
Spell Resistance is invaluable, and the +3 Venomblade helps bypass Damage
Reduction and poisons the target for 1d2 Strength damage.

(5.4.2) Lizardfolk Whipmaster Shape

Sure, 1d2 is pitiful damage for a character of your stature, but this scaly
beastie has some nifty benefits going for it, not least is both Damage Reduction
and Damage Resistance.  Throw in immunity to most slowing/entangling effects as
well as poison, and gain the Disarm Feat, and you've got a potentially lethal
warrior-stopper.  He's also got the most temporary HP of the Humanoids.

(5.4.3) Kobold Commando Shape

Ah, the slip of a sharp blade in the back of the unsuspecting.  Is anything
sweeter?  Then draw the shadows around you and slip away before that big, nasty
sword gets pointed your way.  Lather, rinse, and repeat.  With Weapon Finesse,
he's got the best Attack Bonus of any non-Epic Shape.
Wanna be a Rogue or Assassin?  Now you can!  The bad news?  You'll have to spend
skill points in Search and Disable Trap to work effectively as a Rogue.  Search
uses IN for a modifier, so if you've pumped that up you're okay.  Disable Trap
uses the KC's DX value for a nice bonus.

(5.5) Greater Wildshape IV [Shifter Level 10]

3/day (unlimited at Shifter level 14)

(5.5.1) Dire Tiger Shape

Nothing hidden here.  Awesome ST, major HP, and three strong attacks makes for
the best melee fighter (dealing about twice as much damage each round as his
closest competitor, the Manticore) of the non-Epic Shapes.  Items don't merge,
though.

(5.5.2) Medusa Shape

She's got a poison bite and fairly good claw damage, but let's face it -- you're
going to use her to stop those spellcasters & Rogues with their low Fort saves.
Will they save or turn to stone?  Only her hairdresser knows for sure.

(5.5.3) Mindflayer Shape

One of the few Shapes that modifies your stats (IN & WS) instead of setting them
to a fixed value (the other is Drow Warrior).  Inertial Barrier and Spell
Resistance make for a powerful defense, but his most valuable feature is the
psionic Mind Blast.  The tanks in your party will love you for providing them
nice, docile opponents with no Dodge bonuses to beat up on.  I had a Mind Blast
back in college, but I don't smoke that stuff any more.
Use the nifty +8 IN bonus when using your Appraise, Craft, Lore, and Search
skills.

(5.6) Undead Form [Epic Shifter, Chosen Feat]

Common To All
   Immunity:  Critical Hits, Death Magic, Disease, Level/Ability Drain,
                 Mind Spells, Paralysis, Poison, Sneak Attack.
   Vulnerability:  Can be turned by Clerics & Paladins
                   Dramatically greater damage from Holy traps
                   Unlike true undead, you are harmed, not healed, by negative
                   energy! (May be a bug)

(5.6.1) Risen Lord Shape

Hefty Damage Resistance, plus 50% Immunity to slashing and piercing weapons,
makes for a melee monster.  He'll need it, though, with his pitiful AC.  Add
Spell Resistance and Whirlwind Attack, and you've got one nasty scythe-wielding
skeleton there, bub.

(5.6.2) Vampire Shape

Surprisingly, he has more raw damage potential that the Risen Lord's nasty,
nasty scythe, and his Dominating Gaze uses your Wisdom modifier to make saves
harder, but doesn't last long.  Where he really shines is against Damage
Resistant creatures, even surpassing the Dragon Shapes against high DR (like
20/+5).  Recommended: Dominate, then bite for level drain.  Oh, yeah, he also
regenerates 5 HP per round.

(5.6.3) Spectre Shape

A natural choice for taking out that big, dumb tank in his +30 Plate Mail -
sneak up on him invisibly and drain his Strength until he's as helpless as a
little kitten.  Awww, how cute.  Squish!  Watch out, though, if the big, dumb
tank is actually a big, dumb Cleric tank.

(5.7) Outsider Form [Epic Shifter, WS 25+, Chosen Feat]

3/day

(5.7.1) Azer Chieftain Shape

He's got Burning Hands and a ranged touch Fire Stream, but neither does much
damage.  His main benefit is his +5 Flaming Waraxe, and unlike the Risen Lord,
he can't be turned by Clerics.

   Unarmed: No
   Merge: Weapon, Armor, Items

(5.7.2) Rakshasa Shape

Spell Immunity up to 8th level plus Dispel Magic at will makes this strange
Shape a natural for mage killing.  Remember also that Ice Storm, which you can
cast at will, does not allow a saving throw (although Spell Resistance still
applies unfortunately).

(5.7.3) Death Slaad Lord Shape

Three strong attacks (albeit at a much lower BAB rating than the Azer
Chieftain's axe), plus Regeneration of 5 HP per round and Damage Resistance to
almost everything.  Although he has the lowest damage potential of the
Outsiders, he's got the best elemental defense, and the only resistance to sonic
damage of any Shape.  Think Tasmanian Devil on speed.

(5.8) Construct Form [Epic Shifter, WS 27+, Chosen Feat]

Common To All
   Immunity: Critical Hits, Death Magic, Disease, Level/Ability Drain,
             Mind Spells, Paralysis, Poison, Sneak Attack.

(5.8.1) Stone Golem Shape

Damage Immunity to slashing & piercing is what distinguishes this Golem from the
others, plus the ability to hurl boulders (seemingly created out of thin air).
When it gets to close quarter fighting, however, he's not quite as strong as the
Iron Golem, and he's vulnerable to acid.

   ST:31  DX:    CN:    IN:    WS:    CH:

   Unarmed: Yes
   Merge: Armor

(5.8.2) Demonflesh Golem Shape

The best Golem for wading into hordes of foes due to his huge Damage Resistance
(equivalent to an always-on Premonition spell).  Hefty resistance or immunity to
elemental damage rounds out the best defense of the Construct Shapes.

   ST:31  DX:    CN:    IN:    WS:    CH:

            SR 22%
   Unarmed: Yes
   Merge: Armor

(5.8.3) Iron Golem Shape

Poison Breath and slightly better Spell Resistance are the distinguishing
characteristics of this Golem.  His Damage Resistance works against +4 weapons,
the best of the Constructs, and his damage potential is the best of the
Constructs.  Vulnerable to fire.

   ST:33  DX:    CN:    IN:    WS:    CH:
   AC: 23 (+13 Natural)
   HP: +90

   Unarmed: Yes
   Merge: Armor, Items

(5.9) Dragon Form [Epic Shifter, WS 30+, Chosen Feat]

Well, this is it.  The pinnacle of your Shifter achievements.  Dragon Strength
(they all share the same stats) is 50% higher than the nearest competitor (Iron
Golem), Dexterity 40% higher than Epic Kobold Commando, and Constitution 50%
higher than Azer Chieftain, making for your best melee Shape yet.  Add an
unlimited use Breath Attack for up to 24d10 damage and standard Dragon
immunities for a very strong Shape.
Some experienced players, however, question whether this Shape is worth the
expense of attaining it, especially since it does not include the Fear aura that
real dragons have.  Statistics show, however (see Section 7), that the Dragon is
consistently the strongest melee presence of all Shapes by a large margin,
except against high Damage Resistance foes, when he's overtaken by the Shapes
with +5 or better weapons.  In that case, flame 'em, Sparky!

This should be your standard Dragon Shape, unless your opponent is immune to
fire.

   Special: Breath Attack (see above)d10 fire, 50 ft cone

(5.9.2) Ancient Blue Dragon Shape

Since the only difference between this and the Red is the Breath Attack type,
choose this only when you meet an opponent immune to fire or vulnerable to
electricity.

   Special: Breath Attack electrical (see above)d8, 100 ft line

(5.9.3) Ancient Green Dragon Shape

   mod] for 3 rounds.  Can be used 1/day for every 4 levels.
   Note: Monks receive this feat for free at level 1.  Monks suffer no
   attack/damage penalty when using this skill and may use it once per day per
   level.  Any creatures that are immune to critical hits are immune to this
   skill.
   (*) This can be used by all of your unarmed Shapes, but if you want it it
   might be better just to take level(s) in Monk.
Thug [1st Level Only]
   +2 initiative, +2 Persuade.
Toughness
   +1 Hit Point per level (gained retroactively).
Two-Weapon Fighting
   Required for: Improved Two-Weapon Fighting
   Penalties for fighting with two weapons are reduced by 2 for each hand.
   Note: Rangers receive this feat for free at level 1.
   (*) None of your Shapes is a two-weapon fighter.  Do the math.
Weapon Finesse
   Prerequisite: BAB +1
   Use DX modifier for attack rolls instead of ST.
   Note: dagger, handaxe, kama, kukri, light hammer, mace, rapier, short sword,
   sickle, unarmed strike and whip.
   (****) This will give a To Hit bonus to the following forms: Black Wyrmling
   (+1), White Wyrmling (+1), Gargoyle (up to +3, depending on Strength),
   Lizardfold Whipmaster (+2), Mindflayer (up to +4, depending on Strength),
   Vampire (+1), Spectre (+3), Rakshasa (+2).  If you pump your Dexterity to 18
   or so, it will also help Red Wyrmling (+1), Blue Wyrmling (+2), Green
   Wyrmling (+2), Basilisk (+1).  With 20 Dexterity add +1 to the last group,
   and add Minotaur (+1).  The Kobold Commando (both base and Epic) and the Epic
   Lizardfolk Whipmaster already get this for free.  And yes, it does help with
   unarmed Shapes.  That appears to be a bug.
Weapon Focus
   Prerequisite: Weapon Proficiency, BAB +1
   Required for: Weapon Specialization (Fighters only)
   +1 Bonus to Attack rolls with selected weapon.
   (****) Weapon Focus Unarmed Strike will enhance the melee abilities of almost
   2/3 of your Shapes.
Weapon Proficiency Druid
   Allows use of club, dagger, dart, sickle, scimitar, spear, sling, and
   quarterstaff.  Does NOT allow any other Weapon Proficiency Feats to be
   selected unless allowed by another class (i.e., Druids can only be proficient
   in these weapons, but Fighter/Druids get Simple and Martial, and can choose
   Exotic as well).
   (*) You already have it.
Weapon Proficiency Exotic
   Allows use of dire mace, double axe, dwarven waraxe, kama, katana, kukri,
   scythe, shuriken, two-bladed sword, and whip.
   (***) More possibilities for weapons to be merged into your Shifted form.
   You'll need a tertiary class to even be given the choice to take it, since
   neither Druids nor Shifters have access to it normally.
Weapon Proficiency Martial
   Allows use of bastard sword, battleaxe, greataxe, greatsword, halberd,
   handaxe, heavy flail, light flail, light hammer, longbow, rapier, scimitar,
   short sword, shortbow, throwing axe, and warhammer.
   Note: Arcane Archers, Barbarians, Blackguards, Champions Of Torm, Dwarven
   Defenders, Fighters, Paladins, and Rangers are automatically proficient with
   all martial weapons.
   (***) More possibilities for weapons to be merged into your Shifted form.
   You'll need a tertiary class to even be given the choice to take it, since
   neither Druids nor Shifters have access to it normally.
Weapon Proficiency Simple
   Allows use of club, dagger, mace, sickle, spear, morningstar, quarterstaff,
   light crossbow, dart, sling, and heavy crossbow.
   Note: Arcane Archers, Assassins, Barbarians, Bards, Blackguards, Champions Of
   Torm, Clerics, Dwarven Defenders, Fighters, Harper Scouts, Shadowdancers,
   Paladins, Rangers, and Rogues are automatically proficient with all simple
   weapons.
   (***) More possibilities for weapons to be merged into your Shifted form.
   You'll need a tertiary class to even be given the choice to take it, since
   neither Druids nor Shifters have access to it normally.
Weapon Specialization
   Prerequisite: Fighter with Weapon Focus in desired weapon, BAB +4
   +2 Bonus to damage rolls with selected weapon.
   (****) For Fighter Shifters, Weapon Specialization will help immensely.
   Unarmed Strike (all unarmed Shapes), battleaxe (Minotaur), spear (Drider),
   longsword (Drow), Whip (Whipmaster), shortsword (Commando), scythe (Risen
   Lord), dwarven waraxe (Azer).  For some reason the Rakshasa staff is not
   considered a quarterstaff, so Weapon Specialization won't work with it at
   all.
Whirlwind Attack
   Prerequisite: DX 13+, IN 13+, Expertise, Dodge, Mobility, Spring Attack, BAB
   +4.
   Use: Selected
   When you use the full attack action, you can give up your regular attacks and
   instead make one melee attack at your full base attack bonus against each
   opponent within 5 feet.
   When you use the Whirlwind Attack feat, you also forfeit any bonus or extra
   attacks granted by other feats, spells, or abilities.
   (***) Requires lots of prerequisites, but most of them are pretty useful
   anyway.  Surrounded by a mob of nasties?  This'll ruin their day.
Zen Archery
   Prerequisite: WS 13+, BAB +3
   Use WS modifier instead of DX for ranged attacks.
   (****) If you go for the higher level Epic Forms (Outsider, Construct,
   Dragon) you're going to need massive Wisdom.  Why not put it to use in ranged
   attacks?  Since many of your Shapes have a DX component, there's not much
   need to boost Dexterity.  The downside is that, as a Shifter, you may be
   spending most of your time in forms that don't have a ranged attack.

Construct Shape (Shifter 11+)
   Available To: Epic Shifter, WS 27+
   Stone Golem, Demonflesh Golem, Iron Golem Shapes.
   (*****) Very nice Shapes for melee, with nifty immunities to sneak attacks,
   level drain, and such.
Dragon Shape (Druid 18+, Shifter 11+)
   Prerequisite: Wildshape 6/day or Greater Wildshape IV, WS 30+
   Ancient Red, Blue, or Green Dragon Shape.
   (****) Seasoned adventurers question whether it's worth the effort, but
   there's no doubt that dragon breath and dragon claws are fearsome.
Energy Resistance
   DR 10/- for a chosen type of energy (up to 100/- if chosen ten times).
   (**) Wyrmling Shapes have 100% immunity to 4 of the 5 elements (fire, cold,
   electricity, acid).  Azer Chieftain also has 100% fire immunity.  Demonflesh
   and Iron Golem have high immunity to electricity.  Could be
   useful for sonic resistance, however.
Epic Spell Focus
   Prerequisite: Spell Focus, Greater Spell Focus
   +6 to DC for spells cast from the chosen school.
   (*) Your strengths are not direct damage spells, but finding the right Shape
   to exploit vulnerabilities.  You're not going to win an offensive spell
   fight.
Epic Spell Penetration
   Prerequisite: Spell Penetration, Greater Spell Penetration
   +6 against spell resistance.
   (*) Your strengths are not direct damage spells, but finding the right Shape
   to exploit vulnerabilities.  You're not going to win a Spell Penetration

   (*) You should be Shifting if threatened, not casting.
Outsider Shape (Shifter 11+)
   Available To: Epic Shifter, WS 25+
   Azer Chieftain, Rakshasa, and Death Slaad Shapes.
   (*****) Azer Chieftain and Death Slaad are great in melee, and the Rakshasa's
   spell immunity makes a great mage-killer.  Be warned, though, that Clerics
   with the Planar Turning Feat can turn you like undead.
Undead Shape (Shifter 11+)
   Available To: Epic Shifter
   Risen Lord, Vampire, and Spectre Shapes.
   (*****) Very nice Shapes available as soon as you hit Epic Shifter status.
   Damage Resistance/Damage Immunity/Whirlwind Attack for the Risen Lord; Level
   Drain bite for the Vampire; Strength Drain touch attack and improved
   invisibility for the Spectre.  Be careful if you come up against Clerics,
   though - you can be turned just like the undead form you take, and unlike
   real undead, you're not healed by negative energy.

(6.3.2) Other Bonus Feats available to other Epic classes:

Armor Skin
   Available To: Epic Barbarian, Cleric, Fighter, Monk, Paladin, Blackguard,
   Champion Of Torm, Dwarven Defender, Red Dragon Disciple, or Weapon Master

   Available To: Epic Ranger
   Prerequisite: 5+ favored enemies
   Any weapon used against favored enemies is +2 to hit and +2d6 damage.  Harper

   limited to Rangers.
Blinding Speed
   Available To: Epic Ranger, Rogue, Shadowdancer, or Weapon Master
   Prerequisite: DX 25+
   Haste for short periods.
   (*) No question it's a great Feat, but boosting your Dexterity high enough to
   get it wastes a lot of upgrades when it's overridden by the Shape you take.

   modified Shapes:  Red Wyrmling, Blue Wyrmling, Green Wyrmling, Epic Harpy,
   Minotaur, Epic Minotaur, Basilisk, Risen Lord, Azer Chieftain, Stone Golem,
   Demonflesh Golem, Iron Golem.

   (**) No question it's a great Feat, but boosting your Constitution high
   enough to get it wastes a lot of upgrades when it's overridden by the Shape

   the non-CN-modified Shapes:  Black Wyrmling, White Wrymling, Harpy, Epic
   Gargoyle, Basilisk, Epic Basilisk, Epic Manticore, Lizardfolk Whipmaster,
   Epic Lizardfolk Whipmaster, Kobold Commando, Epic Kobold Commando, Medusa,

   Critical, Weapon Focus, Power Attack, ST 25+
   Critical hits force a Fort save to avoid instant death.
   (*) No question it's a great Feat, but boosting your Strength high enough to
   get it wastes a lot of upgrades when it's overridden by the Shape you take.
   That said, it could be very helpful if you spend a lot of time in the tiny
   number of non-ST-modified Shapes:  Gargoyle, Kobold Commando, Epic Kobold
   Commando, Mindflayer.  Only the Dire Tiger, Stone Golem, Demonflesh Golem,
   Iron Golem, and Dragons will not nerf your awesome Strength, but they will
   waste your precious, hard-fought ST boosts.
Epic Dodge
   Available To: Epic Rogue or Shadowdancer
   Prerequisite: Dodge, Improved Evasion, Defensive Roll, Tumble 30+, DX 25+
   Ignore all damage from the first attack each round.

   quarterstaff.
Epic Weapon Specialization (Fighter 20+)
   Available To: Epic Fighter
   Prerequisite: Weapon Focus, Epic Weapon Focus, Weapon Specialization
   +4 damage with the chosen weapon.
   (*****) A no-brainer for Fighter Shifters.  Start by specializing in Unarmed

   favorite weapon-bearing Shape:  battleaxe (Minotaur), spear (Drider), long
   sword (Drow), whip (Whipmaster), short sword (Commando), scythe (Risen Lord),

   the same as a quarterstaff.
Epic Will
   Available To: Epic Bard
   +4 Will saves.
   (*) Although Shifter Will saves are bad, Druid Will saves are good.  So
   unless you've chosen a low-WS, low-Druid route (which will disallow the
   Outsider, Construct, and Dragon Shapes as well as higher level Druid spells),
   you'll already have awesome Wisdom, which translates to Will saves.  Several

   Mind Spells.

   useful, but boosting your Dexterity high enough to get it wastes a lot of
   upgrades when it's overridden by the Shape you take.  That said, it could be
   very helpful if you spend a lot of time in the non-DX-modified Shapes:  Red
   Wyrmling, Blue Wyrmling, Green Wyrmling, Epic Harpy, Minotaur, Epic Minotaur,
   Basilisk, Risen Lord, Azer Chieftain, Stone Golem, Demonflesh Golem, Iron
   Golem.

   your awesome Constitution (or both) is small:  Kobold Commando, Epic Kobold

   x3 weapons, and by +3d6 for 4x weapons.
   (*) No question it's a great Feat and the prerequisite Feats are all quite
   useful, but boosting your Strength high enough to get it wastes a lot of
   upgrades when it's overridden by the Shape you take.  That said, it could be
   very helpful if you spend a lot of time in the tiny number of non-ST-modified
   Shapes:  Gargoyle, Kobold Commando, Epic Kobold Commando, Mindflayer.  Only
   the Dire Tiger, Stone Golem, Demonflesh Golem, Iron Golem, and Dragons will

   fought ST boosts.
Perfect Health
   Available To: Epic Paladin, Blackguard or Dwarven Defender

   Immune to all disease and poison.

(7) What's The Best Shape For...

These are just rough approximations.  There are far too many variables (Bull's
Strength, weapons/armor/items merged into your Shape, multiclass abilities,
etc.) to calculate all the options for, but these suggestions might help you to
choose the best Shape for the situation you're in.  Which is, after all, the
strength of the Shifter class.

Something I didn't realize until I playtested it is that the number of attacks
you have as a human is *not* altered when you Shift.  Therefore, as a Druid
5/Shifter 1 your BAB is +3 in human form.  Since your Wyrmling Shapes list their
attacks as Claw/Claw/Bite you might expect to get three attacks each round, but
in practice you only get the first Claw.  If you continue to gain Shifter levels
you'll get the second Claw attack at Druid 5/Shifter 4 (BAB +6/+1) and the Bite
attack at Druid 6/Shifter 10 (BAB +11/+6/+1).  This is undoubtedly to keep the
Shifter class balanced in relation to the other classes, but to me it seems
wrong.  Anyway, that's the reality.

Therefore, don't let the number of attacks listed fool you.  If your
Fighter/Druid/Shifter has a BAB of +16/+11/+6/+1, then your Shapes will all have
4 attacks:

   Wyrmling          Claw/Claw/Bite/Claw
   Minotaur          Axe/Axe/Axe/Axe
   Stone Golem       Slam/Slam/Slam/Slam
   Demonflesh Golem  Slam/Slam/Bite/Slam
   Dragon            Claw/Claw/Bite/Claw

Note: Unless noted otherwise, "Average damage" is calculated as a
      Druid 10/Shifter 10 with no stat bonuses or magical equipment, in
      melee against an AC 30 opponent)

It should go without saying that Flurry Of Blows is only helpful against
low AC opponents, since it reduces your chance to hit by 10% for all attacks.

(B) The Monk Unarmed Attack Bug

Multiclassed Monks benefit from a bug in the game engine which calculates
secondary attacks from the Monk table whenever the character is unarmed or using
kamas.  So for example, according to the PnP rules, a Fighter 11/Monk 1 should
get his choice between the following attacks:

   +11/+6/+1 (as a Fighter) or +0 (as a Monk)

Obviously the Fighter has better attacks.  But since Monks get secondary attacks
every 3 levels when unarmed, the game calculates it thus:

   +11/+8/+5/+2

Yes, it's a bug.  Is it delightful to exploit?  Oh, yes!

(C) Relevant Scripts And Toolset Objects

How to examine scripts:
   Load the Aurora toolset and open any available module (or create one).  Under
   the Tools menu, select Script Editor.  Ctrl-O to open a file.  Choose "All
   Resources" from the option at bottom right.  Type the first few letters of
   the script and the list will filter itself.  Of course, it helps to have a
   bit of a background in computer programming to understand the script.
   Scripts are identified here by the ".nss" extension.

How to examine objects:
   Load the Aurora toolset and open any available module.  Doubleclick any Area
   to view it.  On the right side of the screen, select the icon that looks like
   a fox head (Paint Creatures).  Select any creature from the list, rightclick
   and select "Edit Copy".  Under the picture of your creature, click
   "Inventory".  Now you can examine weapons, armor, claws, bites, skins, etc.,
   by using the same "Edit Copy" command to view them.

(D) Some options for alternate Shapes

DISCLAIMER:
This is all speculative at this point.  Which means that although the theory is
sound, I haven't actually tried it.  If you have, please let me know how it
works.

Bored with your early-career Shapes?  Wish you could truly Shift into *any*
Shape you desire?  It's possible, but not for the faint hearted.  You'll need to
get into the raw data guts of the NWN engine, but you can do it.  I have faith
in you.  Ready?

Open up the following file in a text editor (if you insist on using Word or some
other word processing program, make sure you save as file type "plain text"):
   [NWN_install_directory]\data\polymorph.2da

You may have to extract this file from the [NWN_install_directory]\data\2da.bif
file.  This is not for the faint of heart.  But if you're feeling adventurous,
here's how:

   1. Make a copy of [NWN_install_directory]\data\2da.bif.
   2. Edit the copy in a text editor.  I use TextPad; you can't use Notepad
      due to file size, but you could use WordPad as long as you remember to
      save as file type "plain text".
   3. Search for "POLYMORPH_TYPE_".
   4. Copy the block of text from "2DA V2.0" all the way down to the last
      "POLYMORPH_TYPE_" line.  Save it in the [NWN_install_directory]\override
      directory as "polymorph.2da".  Make sure to save as type "plain text".
   5. Continue with the modifications listed below.

I've heard rumors of programs which will extract resources from BIF files, so if
you have one, more power to you.

If your text editor has an option to not wrap long lines, make it do so.  Now
you should see some data with column headings like this:
   Name                                   AppearanceType   RacialType   (...)

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to modify certain lines to change
the Shape you shift into.  For example, if you choose to switch Minotaur to
Gelatinous Cube, change the line that starts like this:

66    POLYMORPH_TYPE_MINOTAUR

Your radial Shifter menu will still list it as "Minotaur" but now you should
Shift into a Gelatinous Cube instead.  Following are several suggestions to
spice up your Shifting experience.

(F) The Shifter XP Penalty Bug

Currently (as of version 1.61 at least), Shifters suffer from a nasty bug which
penalizes them 20% of earned experience points.  Why?  Simple enough, from game
mechanics:  since you actually *become* a Minotaur, Wyrmling, Basilisk, etc.,
you are no longer Human or Elf or whatever.  None of the races you Shift into
lists Druid as its Preferred Class.  So you're earning experience points as a
Minotaur, but since Minotaur is your Preferred Class you suffer the 20%
multiclassing penalty, no matter what race or class you are naturally.
Currently the only known solution is to cheat:  at level up, use debug commands
to grant yourself 20% of the XP toward the next level.  For example, if you've
just made 15th level, you'll need 15,000 XP to make it to 16th.  And 20% of
15,000 is 3,000.  So type this while in-game:

   `DebugMode 1
   `GiveXP 3000
                (the cursor changes to a select cursor - select yourself)
   `DebugMode 0
                (check your character sheet to see if it worked)

Let's hope they fix this pronto, especially for Shifters on Persistent Worlds
who may not even have access to the debug commands.
