So while I love most of Kislev its roster, I just feel like the Elemental Bear is a tad underwhelming. The only interesting thing it has going for it is the ice breath, and that deals very little damage. Perhaps they could receive some boon to help them out?
Here are some of my ideas, but if you agree with me then I'd love to hear your opinions as well:
1) Increase the damage of their breath weapon to be on par with that of dragons, and design it so that players can use it frontal to great effect as well, as the Elemental Bear has much less flanking potential than a flying dragon.
2) Give it an area around it that deals damage to enemy creatures once it is in melee. This could work similar to the effect of the Fey Enchantress, with either only dealing damage or dealing damage and also adding a -8 Melee attack penalty, so that the effect will not stack with the effects of other Elemental Bears.
What are your thoughts on these ideas?
