Why do people say Shapeshifters are bad?
I don’t quite get it. It’s basically just the regular Druid with a pretty good defensive
innate ability with wild shape, at the cost of being unable to wear armor. But so far I’ve been able to deal with that via bark skin and items I can equip, plus iron skins. I see how it may not be quite as good as the Avenger throughout the series, but to me it seems stronger in the mid to late game than the totemic Druid. The totemic Druid seems to taper off in mid-late game due to the fact that the summons don’t progress after the Druid hits level 10. The Shapeshifter at least gets the mid-late game GWW boost.
So what gives? Is the overall package really worse than a fighter in mid-late game? If you consider it to just be a caster that can shift to defend itself in melee if necessary, it seems pretty strong.
