The polymorphing code is now finished. Polymorphing is the ability to turn a character into a different race and inherit all of the abilities of that race. All natural attacks and armor are carried over, as well as all physical ability scores. Mental stats, such as Int/Wis/Cha, are retained from the character's original race. The new race code makes this very easy, and doesn't require the old method of switching a player into an NPC.
While a relatively minor part of 2.0, Polymorphing is essential for druids as their inherent ability "Wildshape" is the ability to polymorph into an animal form. It's also used in some fun spells, such as:
Code: Select all
Level : Spider 6
Components : Somatic Verbal
Radius : None
Target : Character in world
Duration : Variable
Saving Throw : Will half
This spell magically forces the target into the form of a drider who then
must follow the will of the caster.
