The Ice Claw spell from the Spell compendium is very weak for a 7th level spell.

It does a grapple but the damage is very weak for its level how would you go about balancing the spell to be more in line with 7th level power of spells.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Erik Not off-topic so much as too-broad. But this, I think, is reasonably scoped—a 7th-level spell makes a reasonably definitive balance point, and expanding in an existing spell gives us a fairly narrow idea of the kinds of things it should do. It seems like there should be little trouble for experts to vote on implementations. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan May 12 '18 at 20:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ This is an idea generation question, though; it's asking "how would you balance this to be better?" There's no right or wrong answer. As such, it's not really on-topic for RPG.SE. \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast May 12 '18 at 23:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @V2Blast I think it might actually be an X/Y problem. Asker, please, rephrase the question: Is the spell ice claw weak for its level? Then folks that want to take the extra step of rebalancing the spell can do that after answering the question. \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan May 13 '18 at 7:33
