    I was thinking that now that dragons/greaters dread mounts etc all have the same fire breath that reptalons started with, why not change the firebreath of reptalons to a meteor swarm type attack? make it so they throw out multi fireballs in one breath, each fireball being less powerful than the fire breath type. Reptalons would become a fun pet for champs and other mass spawns.
    what do yall think?
     
  2. They need something, that's for sure! Your idea sounds neat! They also should look less stupid while running...

    Agreed. It was the one thing that might have kept "Poke the reptalon's owner with us". Well it might have.

    Technically, it was present (and mechanically identical) in the original Doom, too.

    Yup, I blasted many a thing in Doom with the good ole BFG.

    On topic though, I'd say have them have an explosion attack -- it builds up based on attacks on the creature until it can be used, then the Reptalon can decide to let it go.

    It causes conflagration + poison cloud + confusion + a four point greater explosion (corners of a 9x9 square) around itself. You want firepower, baby, that's FIREPOWER.

    :flame:
     
  9. I think they should replace paralyze with collossal blow.
