Shift Into Action

Legendary Shifters is the latest volume in our series of class-focused player supplements, this time focusing on the the mercurial shifters! This base class, introduced in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Wilderness, was designed to be the ultimate shapeshifting character, allowing players to take a variety of forms in the blink of an eye. Legendary Shifters works to further embody this concept with a redesign of the class that gives even greater freedom to transform into whatever you wish at a moment’s notice. With an updated version of wild shape dubbed shifter shape, legendary shifters can not only take different forms more easily, but also change between their forms without hesitation! In addition, this book contains a ton of new archetypes to help your shifter take the form you want them to, from the furious Dragon Touched to the tricky and capricious Fey Shifter.  The insidious Mimickin allows for transformation into regular objects, while Necromorphs are focused on both transforming into and raising the dead. And if even more variety is required, the Polymorph Savant prestige class allows for almost infinitely varied shapeshifting, with access to a plethora of different forms. Plus,  tons of new feats, spells, and more! Grab this 32-page Pathfinder Roleplaying Game class supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Does the improved natural attack feat increase the damage of shifter evolution ?

It does not, the damage is intended to stay the same regardless of size, and this also applies to abilities which would increase its damage.

And as always, it's time for my dev post on rebuilding this class.

Legendary Shifter
So how does one go about doing a rebuild? The first thing I did was give shifting at 1st level, because to me, holding a key class feature until 4th level makes anyone playing at level 1-3 not feel like they're playing the class, and that's something I really didn't like. To balance this, the forms being able to be taken earlier are limited to make sure this shifting didn't cause too many problems. In addition, the legendary shifter is not locked to their aspects, using traditional wildshape mechanics to avoid creating new mechanics where necessary. Now you have as much control over your form as a druid, as well as being able to change into magical beasts to further separate yourself from druids and hunters. Doing this helped give the class a definitive mechanical niche where others weren't already. And lastly to this first part, at 20th level, at will wild shape.

Second of all, shifting is divided...See more

Thank you guys for the great product. The big selling point of this was the updated shifter and the polymorph savant with all the cool archetypes being a 'win more' standpoint.

A question on the Polymorph Savant and adding to it as the intent was to give a less combat more utility Master of Many Forms.
MoMF gave access to all types through it's progression.

Is there any way (possibly in a Legendary Shifters II? I'd pay money) to expand to the missing types that Savant doesn't quite give?
I could see it as a feat tax requiring levels in Polymorph Savant

Types/Effects missing from the Polymorph Savant (and my thoughts on how to gain them). As it looks like the fastest way to get into the class is Legendary Shifter 5 / Polymorph Savant X I am going to assume that's the intended entry point

Giant/Elementals/Undead: Spells are already made for this effect and exist as class features. So simple feat tax seems like a thing
The Other Dragons types:...See more

There should be a print on demand option soon enough, or at least I'd expect there to be.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
