Stat questions for Gangrel unarmed build
« on: March 31, 2020, 09:39:22 pm »
Hi all,Time for a replay, using Wesp's unofficial patch with added content. I'm going to go with Gangrel, primarily using Protean to enhance my unarmed attacks.- "Hunter of the Night" (Protean level 4) text states +4 to strength in the character sheet. The wiki says it's only +2. Is this a change added by Wesp's patch, or a typo?- If it is +4, that huge boost to strength leads me to ask: can Attributes, Abilities, etc go above 5 in aggregate? 5 is the highest you can get using XP allotment, but can it go higher with boosts such as Protean? If Hunter of the Night adds 4 Strength, and Strength is maxed out at 5, then I might not put any XP points into Strength.- Does Protean level 2, "Feral Claws", factor in/add to Unarmed/Brawl level? Or does it have it's own innate state"/stats?Thanks for the help. It's been many years since I last played, and that was a more refined gentlewoman playthrough.

The strength bonus was increased in the plus patch to get access to additional items. And as far as I know some of the stats go well beyond 10...

Feats go above 10 for sure. Stats, I don't know. There are 5 "bubbles" you can fill using XP, but can, say, Strength go higher? For example, if I have 3 out of 5 bubbles of strength filled via XP, and I activate Protean level 4, will I then have 7 Strength?


EDIT: I posted this at the beginning of my game. Turns out it's a simple matter to test it. And yes, although you don't get more "bubbles", Strength does indeed go beyond the 5 max you can gain via XP. However, once you get War Form, it's a very small amount in comparison to the form. Holy crap is that a lot of Unarmed Combat!
