    Aren't these kits from later editions? I'm almost certain I saw Dragon Disciples in NWN or NWN2...

    http://nwn.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Prestige_classes

    Yes, it looks like they are trying to implement Prestige Classes: with Blackguards, Assassins, Dwarven Defenders, Dragon Disciples and Shadow Dancers that's about half the list of the NWN-prestige classes :P
  • KaltzorKaltzor Posts: 1,013Member
    Red Dragon Disciples were a presitge class in both NWNs

    Where are Duelists?
  • shawneshawne Posts: 2,002Member
    Hrm. That list doesn't indicate how much lower the DD's spells are - they're not exactly swimming in them in BG1 as it is...
  • ajwzajwz Posts: 3,705Member, Beta Tester
    This is an excellent find
  • FlashburnFlashburn Posts: 746Member
    I bet Hide in Plain Sight is going to be as OP as it was in NWN.

    Dark moon monk looks quite weak.

    Dragon disciple will depend on how many less spells it gets than a regular sorceror.

    Shadow dancers look good but could be difficult to manage

    Dwarf defender looks good

    Man, I've wanted Sorcerer kits for awhile but the Dragon Disciple is a bit of a boring kit/prestige class in the BG2 engine. I suppose they can spice it up, using recolored wings from 1PP, and maybe letting the Con do something....but losing spells for those abilities looks like a horrible trade.

    Just give me a Bladesinger, Overhaul. I've wanted that since BG2 originally came out.

    I was wondering about the monks from Rasaad's quests and how they seem to have abilities that monks normally do not have.
  • MessiMessi Posts: 617Member
    Dragon Disciple looks crap others are seem good/ok.
  • ElendarElendar Posts: 556Member
    They all look like crap.

    Implementing Dragon Disciples and Dark Moon monks like this is a rubbish idea.
    The other two are more or less adorable though.

    Shadowdancer or something very similar was a prestige class in NWN, too.

    I don't know enough lore about Monks to really comment on the Dark Moon ones, but I was really hoping if/when we got a Sorc kit it would be something like the Tainted Sorc since that is basically a blood mage. It just would make a ton of sense with the whole Bhaalspawn angle, and they could do some interesting things by giving them powers/spells unique to the kit that damaged you as you cast them to show the blood-loss, and/or even have a chance to frenzy after them to show the char failing to the seduction of the power.

    I think they could make the Dragon Disciple a fun kit, but that current version listed in this thread is not worth losing spells over.

    Dragon Disciple looks underpowered. I never played NWN 1 or 2 so I don't know how effective it was as a prestige class, but its conversion to 2e doesn't seem balanced. Why would a sorcerer give up any significant number of spell slots for an AC and CON bonus? And only 1 firebreath per day? Those bonuses are almost certainly negated by simply being able to cast more spells.

    Why not STR bonuses instead? Give the Dragon Disciples the ability to crush the skull of anyone who comes near them.

    i doubt it, in NWN you can take a level of SD anytime (for instance, you can be 1 SD/ 19 Rogue , or something like 1 SD/ a few level a rogue/ and alot of levels of assassin), you get full sneak attack progression

    In BG, you can't multiclass to a pure thief to get the x5 or x7 backstab, staying as a pure SD you get lousy backstab x2 for the entire BG game, and at most x3 in BG2. AND a very lousy thief THAC0 progression. If you Dual class to fighter, you don't get enough skill point to max your hide/move silently (which are crucial).

    In NWN2, players would take a single level of Bard to get the Dragon Disciple prestige class, and mix it with weapon master and fighter levels rather than playing it as a caster class... It was stupidly over-powered that way.

    Dwarven Defender... Mainly use war hammers and axes to get damage reductions and every 4 levels can become the best non-cheated thing out there for one turn?
  • UnknownQuantityUnknownQuantity Posts: 242Member
    I guess the kit names alone sum up why I didn't like NWN or 3rd edition.
  • ZarakinthishZarakinthish Posts: 212Member
    I have mixed feelings over this discovery. I like that they are looking to expand the game with new kits, but at the same time I wish they wouldn't draw in so much more material from 3/3.5 edition. Don't get me wrong, I like 3/3.5 and quite enjoyed NWN. I just think that part of what makes the Baldur's Gate experience unique is that it is 2nd edition AD&D (for the most part).
  • SindyanSindyan Posts: 135Member
    Dwarf defender!!!! Sweetness!!!

    Errrm... BG2 especially already heavily draws from 3rd ed.

    I wouldn't say heavily. It draws some from it, but not a huge amount.

    Kits are suppose to have some disadvantages, Dwarven Defender has almost none, only a slight weapon restriction, and is superior to a regular fighter in every other conceivable way.

    Except that it is exclusively available to dwarves and cannot be dualled. Right, almost devoid of disadvantages.
