I think a larger Will bonus would be in order, and it might be nice to sort out the slightly ugly text on Song of Slaying while buffing it a bit. I'm contemplating giving it a substantial Will bonus of +Song (this will also bolster Majesty, but Majesty is niche enough right now I'm not super concerned), and making the protection not dependent on Song - something like 2d2 would probably work. Thoughts?

More will is probably good. I'd just be careful with hardiness & crit resist. Full song=+will is about 2 more levels of crit resist. It needs a powerup, you would just need to check the heavy armour guys don't become unkillable. Hardiness is a small bonus but it's all damage. It's rare to see the extreme protection end but if you use =protection, hardiness & armour use it'll take some heavy breathe damage. So yeah buff, just careful how much. Currently if it isn't a drake or balrog I'm preferencing trees when I take both.

Crit resistance won't affect the breath damage, but with Hardiness and 2d2 base protection, 12 Song or so could squeeze out [2-6] protection added by Staying vs the [1-4] players would have now. This is quite a decent upgrade but I think will still keep the big breathers as pretty dangerous.

A high-evasion character with appropriate resists can be quite hard to kill also, so I'm not too worried about characters being very hard to kill; I do want to ensure that Staying doesn't become more effective for this purpose than Song of Overwhelming further up. Overwhelming has a significantly greater neutralising effect in melee, but requires more work and doesn't count for much against breath weapons.

Going to give this a whirl on my new tablet. Read the manual a couple times, I definitely think this version will require much more thought on skills to take.

Certainly can't 3 shot Morgoth haha. Should be interesting though. I'm going to try my Sil 1.1.1 build anyway (subtlety plus rapid attack), I'm unsure which if any songs I'll use. I actually found song of slaying incredibly useful outside the throne room but it was ridiculous in there, so agree it had to go.
