Please give shamans the ability to light a campfire without flint, like half-vistani, rangers, druids, and barbarians can. They should be fairly fire savvy with flames being a traditional ritual component.

Divine resist crafting lining for cloth/leather/armor. This is Ravenloft, evil should thrive against good and Gods have a far weaker presence

We do not have enough NPCs dealing that type of damage to justify this. Nor do we want to make it easier than it already is for casters to resist physical attack damage from other PCs in PvP.

Every mummy in Har'Akir spams hammer of the gods, that's a good portion of content.

Hope it's considered in the next dev discussion, there should be more avenues to resist divine than there are to resist negative in Ravenloft.

Divine isn't alignment specific as well.

There is very obviously divine magic in the domains of dread.

It doesn't mean it doesn't exist. No where did I say that divine magic doesn't exist.  Ezrites do not talk to Ezra like clerics of a sufficient level could do in Forgotten Realms. You cannot communicate directly with your God and your capability in using that divine magic against undead is limited. See Turn Undead. See Divine Sense.

Logically, there should be more forms for evil to resist divine damage in Ravenloft. Anyways, I'll leave it to the devs to discuss now that it's been raised.

Divine damage is not inherently "good".

If there's a creature to kill and skin that makes sense for divine resistance feel free to suggest it. There's gloves, cloak, a ring and an amulet i'm aware of for 5/- to 10/- divine resist so it's not like its breaking balance, it fits in a tailoring and a leatherworking slot already. Shamans also have that new Substitution spell, and scroll, to add % immunity.

We should probably make a proper thread out of this topic, but I agree with Grandeur; there is already divine resist items that exist, and adding a lining for it won't break balance. If you are that worried about balance regarding divine damage, you could make it a rare drop I suppose.

Yeah it's a definitive no on divine resist lining. Balance is not having the means to be impervious to everything. We've had this discussion among the dev team often and thoroughly already. An eventual divine protection temporary buff is not excluded, but certainly not a priority. I have no objection to divine resist items through loot drop items (provided it is balanced) but a permanent one through crafting is out of the question.

Har'Akir certainly does not need to be made easier either.

Most likely outside of the skillset and want of the Devs, but a auto-sort inventory command would be amazing.

Not sure this is the thread to post this but please let paladins multiclass into healer.  Both require a PC to be good and serve a good-aligned deity. There are two deities I can think of off the top of my head this'd work for: Illmater, Lathander.

The Ring of the Erudite faction ring lacks any real description, being:

"An iron band."

Since wearing it is an identifier of the faction mechanically, I would like to suggest the description is changed to:

"An iron band that has been acid-etched with to reveal lustrous metallic patterns that shine in the metal. These rings are the result of collaboration between natural science and arcane science, imbued magically to assist the wearer in scholastic pursuit. It bears a modest crest, recognizing the ring-bearer as a member of the Society of the Erudite."

Thanks, I'll update the description with that content.

This exists on the vault but looking at the code I think this would end up spitting a lot of your stacks and stuff like that, so it might end up doing more harm than good.

Please remove the lame arms flailing when you perform a bard song. The concept of just having the music notes would greatly help roleplay. Maybe even a music note emote to help simulate singing or have it a command that just pops up overhead.

It'd have to have a different animation or visible usage that locks up your standard action (just the notes VFX won't do that), as bard song itself is a very obvious performance so it takes an obvious casting action;

Unless you acquire the Subsonics feat, which will make doing bard songs not only a free action instead of a standard action but also do the performance anonymously. No emotes for bard song when you have that.

Related to magical staffs and the Shaman class: Such as the staff of thunder and lightning, but I'm sure there's other examples. Some of these items seem to allow use for clerics, voodans and druids. However, Shamans are omitted from using the staff.

It would sensible to add the Shaman class to the list of classes being able to use such magic staffs both druids and voodans can, unless of course for some distinct lore-related reasons they should not be able to.

Henchmen inventory control;

For A/MPC summons, so vampires can be dressed in different kinds of tailored finery, and death knights can decide on the preferred weapons of their retinue.

Not sure if it was already discussed, but would it be possible to add empty crafting supply bags to the different crafting vendors?

I'm thinking o Dvergeheim's forge in particular for mined mercury, but it might(?) be useful elsewhere.
Cheers

Does the mined mercury not go into the empty Miner's Sack you can buy already?
