    I just realised something, shouldnt they change a minor detail in the spell "polymorph" ?

    As an elf you can transform yourself to a human, loosing the automatic nightsight and mana bonus, meaning they gain the humans benefitts instead?

    Why not make so humans can polymorph to elfs then?
  2. need to verify the :
    they gain the humans benefitts instead

    If an elf polymorphs into a human, they shouldn't receive the human bonuses and they shouldn't lose the elf bonuses. If it is swapping the bonuses, that should be considered a bug (either in implementation or design).

    Well when i transform my elf into a human i lose my nightsight and loses 20 mana..

    Tbh is it a bug? I find it logical since you acually transform yourself to a human.. meaning your no longer an elf..

    Basicly the same thing happens when you transform to human, the gear seems as normal. I.E the helmet acually looks like a helmet and so on..

    So if we could polymorph into elves, feck why not be able to wear "elf's only" gear?

    Just test it if you can light a fire after transforming.
    With the jack of trades human bonus it should be possible

    Just tested it. Polyed into a Human and with 0 real skill in Spellweave, was
    able to cast Nature's Fury.

    But I also noticed that I apparently did NOT loose the night sight and +20
    Mana bonus. And the max allowed carried weight also stayed the same.

    So apparently, if your an Elf and Poly into a Human, you don't loose the Elf
    bonuses, and you get the Human Jack of all Trades bonus.

    But you can't use Ninja animal form.

    Odd cause i tried on my RP mage, with just GM gear and [censored] he lost his mana and nightsight, sure you dont had things on ya to boost you up on those things? I dont know about the rest, such as jack of all trades, the Energy Resist bonus elf's have or anything..

    My elf who took the Spell Weave quest and has 0 skill right now can cast Natures Fury, tho I fiz half a dozen times before one goes off, so it's not the JoAT doing that, unless you can consistently cast them w/out failng

    Perhaps you are correct. But it lists Minimum skill needed for NF is 10.1.
    So even if you completed the quest, with 0 real skill, you should have no
    chance to successfully cast it.

    And yes, I'm certain about the Night sight and Mana. I was down in Doom
    when I tested it
