Realistically, they’re an incredibly common antagonist, that appear in groups, and have more power than most other antags.
A changeling has some abilities that a wizard cant even replicate, IE: resonant shriek, free mulligans. Changelings also get a hidden, sharp, robust as fuck weapon, a summonable shield and armor, on demand stimulants and healing meds, the ability to clear toxins.
The point is, for how easy it is to become an all powerful piece of shit as a ling, theres little to no counterplay, and I want to know WHY?
Why doesnt ear protection work against shriek?
Why is the cost for arm blade and armor still so low?
Why is there not even regular conversation about making things better in regards to lings?
If lings were as rare as Wizard, it might be okay for how powerful they are. But currently you get lings every other round and want to kill yourself
