Felid Caster Melee?

Most casters will develop some melee skills, but how does this work for felids? UC is bad until high skill levels, blaster mage is exp intensive, and felids have mediocre aptitudes.

Compared to a felid, even a squishy deep elf has +10% HP and some +10 AC. So you really want to be very careful about meleeing anything with a felid, unless you have statue form.

Or Dragon Form. I've seen a player meleeing oofs in DF with like 4-7 UC and winning.

Yes, dragon form sounds good. Even though getting DF and not training unarmed does not make any sense. Some people make really weird builds.

Dragon Form gives rF++, so it's better against OoF than it is against many other things.

But aren't all mages supposed to become strong enough to melee popcorn?

Re: Felid Caster Melee?

In my previous youtube series, I start as a FeFE^Fedhas, and stick with fire/conj as my damage dealers for quite a while, then eventually transition to Jiyva. The big pile of melee-oriented muts helped, but really it doesn't take a ton of UC to make blade hands do respectable damage. I would say if you're a felid who is already good at casting spells, it is probably not worth diverting into UC unless you at least have some decent conjurations to act as a force multiplier.

I dissagree on this one. UC is solid throughout the game. Maybe decreasing it's potency in mid-game, since the weapons found get brands etc. But in the endgame\extended it really shines with transmutations.

Problem with Felids tho - poor defences w\o transmutations, so melee is a bit more harsh.
