Shadowdancers and Twist in general have become a controversial and passionate topic. This topic is for the discussion of this. What I hope to achieve is a reasonable discussion that is driven by logic and evidence and does not devolve into name-calling and insults. The general theme of this conversation will be 'Are shadowdancers overpowered and is this due to the mechanics of twist or other factors?"
Couple of notes:
Insults and name-calling will not be allowed and deleted. If you make a completely valid point but throw in a quippy insult, your whole comment will be deleted without warning. You can make good points without insulting people. If you continue to insult, you'll be warned in incrementally until you can no longer post. I don't want to do this though, so please don't make me do it.
Condescending posts or snarky posts may also be deleted. This is obviously a bit more subjective, so I may lean in the direction of just deleting comments I think might fit that description. When posting, ask yourself 'Will anyone else see this as snarky' and if the answer is 'yes', rewrite it.
There is certainly a subjective bias about combat balance. Some people are going to feel differently about skill strengths than others. Please keep this in mind. The line to cross that takes something strong and makes it OP will vary between people.
I'm obviously not perfect and some comments may be deleted that you disagree with me deleting. I'm sorry if that happens.
