What is the Power Level penalty for Furyshaper losing a ward, and does it stack?

EDIT: I just tested it, and I'm disappointed. The Power Level penalty is -1 PER ward, meaning it stacks.


Sure - else it would be quite pointless, wouldn't it?

 

 

It's just that it makes the class rather unattractive, given that the power level debuff is for BOTH classes in the case of a multiclass.

How many wards do you expect to lose during a fight though?

The wards are powerful and make this subclass very useful. Losing one or two during a fight doesn't mean too much - and you can always decide to place them where they won't get attacked in melee.

I didn't try if they can be withdrawn (and keep doing their thing). If they can... ;)

Hail O Lord of All POE Mechanics:

I was looking at the Ancient, seems interesting but the mere +1 PL seems too weak to compensate for the penalties it has. Don't you think that +2 PL would be more appropriate?

I didn't try Ancient at all - yet. So I can't make any reasonable statements. I only know that bonus Power Level is always nice for a Druid. It adds base damage and duration to DoT spells. That has impact.

 

I played a single class Animist with focus on exactly those spells that the Ancient covers and tried to stack a ton of Power Levels (used Spine of Thicket Green, Nature Godlike and Stones of Power). It worked out great. If I had the Ancient back then I would have used him instead of an Animist. So I guess it fills a niche - for me at least.

 

Is the +1 PL too low? Can't say yet.

I only ask because I am almost done with a mod I have been working on off and on, which is a complete revamp of all the accessible Priest subclasses and without spoiling too much, some of the Priest subclasses get a +2 PL for certain damage types, Decay, Freeze, etc. I don't want to make it all too overpowered though so I was wondering how it fit in with the Ancient and I had exactly the same idea for the Ancient that you had for the Animist so looking forward to that.
