John rated oof liked it Aug 11, I would disagree that the other features are mostly flavor stuff. Those seem to be very niche and uncommon situations. It had a bunch of useful information and some interesting tidbits. And they can still dump strength if they really wanted to. As far as I’m aware, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a secondary persona. Its probably a bit much to get all Wisdom checks with advantage.
And the math of the game is bounded.
But not unfixably so. Without a way to glamour the clothes, a Changeling would still need Disguise proficiency at bare minimum, and is limited to how many clothes he could conceivably carry. And I doubt shifting is going to be your best reaction in any social situation considering you get way more bestial when you do.
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s not just a better AC than anyone else can get – it’s a better AC than they can get if they have maximum armor at the minimum possible levels, and the only way to even it up is expending more class features on it Defense fighting style, which only a few classes get, and which the warforged can put into something different. And if you are not running an Eberron campaign and want to use the races, this is a great option for just that.
Even then it’s not that bad, you just sell the extra armor and put the money towards something the party needs like you would do if you didn’t have any heavy armor users. Races of Eberron is a supplement to the 3. Especially since it cant stack with stuff like forge cleric. For the Changelings, their clothes don’t change with them so that limits the appearance changing a bit.
Peat rated it really liked it Dec 08, Assuming you aren’t ever allowed to gain the benefits of any other weapon? I feel like a lot of people are talking past each other when they say “game breaking. Christian Kell rated it it was ok Feb 23, And the warforged AC requires zero Strength investment even for heavyno weight at all, and is worn at all times without any issue.
Changeling, I think, is in a pretty good spot, though unsettling visage seems like more of a doppelganger thing. Huh, I found wildhunt shifters to be very underwhelming.
Which isn’t gamebreaking overall, but damned useful. I want to be able to allow them in my games and play them in other people’s games.

Respect the opinions of others – Each table is unique, just because someone plays differently to you it does not make them wrong. The changeling clothes don’t change when they shape change so that limits it a bit. Emily rated it really liked it Jul 11, Exhaustion is mostly rare, with one exception – overland travel.
So by introducing a mechanic like armor that scales with proficiency it ignores many of the base assumptions about the game, “breaking” the math as it lets you get higher numbers that you otherwise 3.5, making d&s the best option to get high AC overshadowing other options.
If you desperately need to get a scout or a message to anywhere, a warforged especially a skirmisher can do it better than almost anyone. If there’s a balance issue, fix it elsewhere. What feat is worth more to a fighter than all that ac to a variant human? Other books raxes the series. It is, given, mainly a PC tool, it seems, to help with making characters of the races described. Jeremy Friesen rated it liked it Feb 22, This is why 5e doesn’t assume magic items in the balance.
I think it could be removed entirely and then changeling would be good from a mechanical point of view.
But I love the flavor of the added tool proficiency because you have to be “in character” as a persona to get the bonus. Pages to import images to Wikidata.

That still doesn’t seem to be stronger than a bonus action attack or better ac and more temp hp to me. The warforged can utterly ignore a lot of these and oftentimes break the scenario for it.
Also immunity to disease but I feel like that doesn’t come up often.
