I've loved the changes; really I have. But there are a few that seem severely left out in the ways of offensive power... specifically Zolaras and Andra...

Note, that while there are a few others that have no offensive spells, I felt that they were ones that didn't need them by theme (such as Gort or Asis, though Asis can be used offensively against undead) or had self-buffing spells that were powerful enough to be considered 'offensive' (Such as how Torgat gets Divine Power, Aura of Vitality and all of the STR boosts)

Could they get something a little more useful in the ways of granted spells?

For Andra, I'd suggest Creeping Doom
For Zolaras, I'd suggest Finger of Death

Looking through it, I also find that perhaps the spell Pacify would be better chosen over Glyph of Warding, thematically speaking. Perhaps changing out the position of Clairvoyance/Clairaudience with it in the order of when they are recieved would properly balance the spell with when it's gotten as well.

I have to agree with what you have to say about Andra. I have a druid and I *never* use the granted spells, most of them so far really do suck. OOOOOOOOh, I can summon a twig to fight for me and die in one hit... granted my druid is only level 11 but eh....

It seems to me that the granted spells should be as relatively powerful as the current highest spell level you can cast.

Of course I don't think Druids even get "granted spells" in PnP so can't complain to much really.

Druids DON'T get granted spells in normal NWN, or in PnP... the druid granted spells here in Aenea are a purely Aenean thing because the priesthood of the deity Andra are all druids ... she has no "normal clerics", and taken cleric classes with Andra as your patron will grant you no new spells or extra's.... ...

It makes sense that Andra's clergy are all Druids too, as she is the patron goddess of Nature.

Read the following for more info;
Andra
Aenea Druid Changes


And I'd totally agree that some of the abilities suck, especially since these are more "gifts from the gods to show their power", (IMO), then "granted spells"... but that was a whole different thread and we've been down that route before... ... Some of the granted spells could do with a power/level update, but all granted spells are suppose to scale with cleric (or druid in the case of Andra) level...

Hence spells without a DC, level-based duration or scaled damage rate are entirely unbenefitted by having them as granted spells except that they're free and that they are sometimes unique.

Don't get me wrong, I feel that not all of them need to 'benefit' as per the above duration/damage/DC benefits, but at least one or two of them should.

... Yes, technically Control Undead benefits from DC and Duration... but... I still think they need a better 'offensive' spell of some sort....
