The changes included errata to many, if not most, of the combat Charms of every Exalt type, mote regeneration, Combos, stunting, soak, weapon statistics, and more.
However, unlike the aforementioned, Exalted 2. As a concept, 2. Perfect defenses were employed against almost every attack, incentivizing a low-cost, high-accuracy build that dominated the mote-attrition battles that rapidly equated clever and dynamic attacks with hemorrhaging motes.
In addition, it completely revitalizes Sidereal Exalted, which since their efrata in second edition have been plagued by mechanical inconsistencies or even complete functional failure due to their copy-pasted nature from first edition. Many of their Charms did not do what they were intended to, if they worked at all, and those that did were often either trivial to resist or completely indomitable.

The errata has combed through the entire Sidereal Charmset, bringing them up to speed with the other Celestial Exalted and making them not only functional, but also, by all appearances, fun to play. The most important change, to my sroll, is the abolition of both experience and Willpower costs for the Combo system. One of my friends once commented that, whenever he played Exalted, he felt like an Olympic athlete with both arms and one leg tied behind his back: Now, Orrin, you can.
There are a few problems with the new errata.
Some of the clarifications about equipment bonuses stacking are… well, anything but clear. Scropl were plenty of Charms that got missed, simply because there are so many Charms. And some of the sxalted and errata to Sidereals leave splats like Abyssals and Lunars feeling… well, a little lackluster.
Nevertheless, I feel the progress and the corrections made more than outweigh the problems. I do recommend the errata to anyone who plays consistently, not only because it is the official edit to the core rules and most supplementsbut also because it actually makes the game more fun. As part of the 2. This brings me to my only real complaint about 2.
In fact, there are no plans to reprint any of the numerous sourcebooks that would so desperately benefit from an incorporation of the errata, rather than suffering from having to cross-reference yet another tome roughly the same size as the core book to use the rules.
Yes, the irony is not lost on me. Nevertheless, I feel a reprinted Exalted system would benefit tremendously from incorporated errata, and will continue to campaign for it as best I can. The Sidereal Errata was the high point of 2.
Ease of play due to Combo erasure was a big deal, but allowing an entire Exalt type to be playable made me positively giddy. Not all of the balance changes were positive, but having playtested briefly I at least feel like the game is better even for non-Sidereals.
I actually dislike the removal of combos. Designing special displays for each combo and having to pay to use them just made you feel cooler. They should have lowered the cost without eliminating it. It made too many cool mechanics obsolete. Rarely have I seen them go to the trouble of spelling out the special display and name and such. Yeah… this errata was bullshit. I have been playing with the errata in two different groups since it came out, and have seen nothing but improvements. You are commenting using your WordPress.
