This is unlikely to be balanced, and probably never will be The main problem here is that this class allows you to turn into various types of monsters with special abilities that are not balanced for players, and those monsters get those abilities at a CR where they are appropriate for use against the players, not by them. For example, a 5th level Shifter ...

Not 100% sure if this is helpful but I would recommend taking a look at a few books I read in highschool with transportation nearly identical to what you are referring to. There's the Leviathan series by Scott Westerfield, Airborn by Kenneth Oppal, and of course the recently adapted into movie Mortal Engines by Phillip Reeve. They all have similar ...

Just modify existing transportation Most of what you've proposed is analogous to existing seafaring transportation, many of which are given stat blocks in Ghosts of Saltmarsh. Note that these are updated from the briefer versions in the DMG (p.119) with multiple changes. Rather than trying to determine how fast your ship should be able to travel based on ...

It's like asking whether the speed listed for dragons in the ...

It's going to be a wonky class that goes down really fast You want to make a Barbarian, but instead of having armor class, they'd basically have a once per long rest 50% of their HP shield. Now ask yourself, would you rather: Get hit only 10%-20% of the time because you have a really good armor class. This means you're getting hit 80-90% less than others. ...

I'm not really experienced in D&D 5e yet, but this seems utterly and completely broken to me. Nothing can stop the player from multiclassing into another class that will give him some other way to calculate his AC or give him proficiency in some armors and/or shields. Or he takes feats that give him armors proficiency or he takes the feat "Dual Wielder" ...
