Duergar ECL+2
« on: June 21, 2019, 12:40:18 AM »
So, I was under the impression the Duergar subrace was ECL+1, but here on PotM it seems to be +2. Is there any particular reason for that? Compared to an Aasimar or Tiefling, who are also +2, it doesn't seem an equal balance. If the argument for ECL+2 on Aasimar is that they get the human bonuses in addition to the other stats, then I really can't see why Duergar is +2. If it's the Light Sensitivity, I don't think -1 AB really accounts for a whole level.

Duergar stats (on top of base dwarf):
  • -2 Cha
  • Immunity to poison, phantasms, paralysis
  • +1 Listen, +1 Spot, +4 Move Silently
  • Invisibility 1/day
  • No Light Sensitivity(?)
  • No Enlarge Person
  • Keeps Dwarven Waraxe proficiency
  • Keeps +2 Lore


Aasimar stats (on top of base human):
  • +2 Wis, +2 Cha
  • 5/- Acid, Cold, Electricity
  • +2 Spot and Listen
  • Light 1/day
  • Darkvision
  • Keeps bonus feat
  • Keeps bonus skill points

I should add the reason I post this is they are specifically listed as ECL+1 in the Monster Manual:
