Why are orcs CR 1/2? Those falchions really fuck up shit for anyone.

>> No.11535257

because CR is terrible and it should feel terrible

Because they still have only six hit points and 13 AC, at least in Pathfinder.

>> No.11535351

Because CR is incredibly relative and sometimes entirely off. Ogres are also about a CR lower than they ought to be.

So that makes them glass cannons.

Get a whole bunch of orcs and they may die with a single blow, but they will also totally rape you before you can kill them all. Do the same with some other CR 1/2 creature and it wouldn't work.

I am CR 1/2.

Fuck Orcs. I pinch with the fury of a thousand angry suns.

Not to mention Orcs are faggots; they have to be size M to make CR 1/2. I'm size S and the same CR.

Fuck you, you green pussies.

>> No.11535404

Well to be honest, at low levels you could get a bunch of even the CR 1/3 stuff like gobboes together and they would do this. Goblins are weak and do tiny amounts of damage but they fairly hard for level 1 characters to nail in melee and all those 1d4s add up over time.

That said, yeah. CR isn't nearly as exact as it ought to be.

>> No.11535414

Good thing they got rid of it then, huh?

>> No.11535451

CR 1/2 means it is the equal of two level 1 human fighters. Seems about accurate, in this case. Of course, CR is usually garbage. A better way to rate monsters is to build the as if they were PCs. But that requires effort.

>> No.11535460

I was thinking about Pathfinder, but yeah, 4e changing things up was nice.

I've found CR to be good for rough estimates of how tough an encounter will be. However, there are so many factors that you can't "plug in" that you need experience to get a proper metric.
