View Full Version : [Looking for Advice] Homebrewing Spells

2011-03-24, 07:55 PM
Hello everyone!

I'm working on a new base class that uses abilities that, mechanically, are almost identical to spells. The trouble is that I am having a very tough time balancing the damage / effect levels of the abilities. I was wondering if anyone knew of some good guides or tutorials of how to homebrew balanced spells.

The dmg has guidelines that really only adjudicate damage but keep up with or exceed the core damage spells.

I'm not really aware of conditions ever being given a comparative analysis against damage...most "optimal" spells are a result of Wizards ignoring their own advice...
