Honestly not that surprising seeing as you have 3(!) dodging trained. Just turn on dodging and never turn it off as a 'pode. How do you even survive your first centaurs with so little dodging? Or basically anything?

In general I support this change, but there would need to be some sort of provision for non-armour users, felids/octopods. For these types of characters the extra damage reduction trough 3 pips is really important since there is no other damage reduction. Eating Fireballs at only rF+ sounds real bad.
