Burning Bite [Combat Feat] Question

Hello,

The Burning Bite feat for Phoenix Wolves (Through The Smoke, pg.10) states the following:

Add 1d6 + 1 per HD of fire damage to natural attacks and unarmed attacks.

This means the damage on the +1 per HD part increases per level, correct? So a 5th-level character would add 1d6+5 damage to all Unarmed and Natural Attacks, correct?

Thanks in advance!

Correct!

5d6+5 would be terrifying, and horribly balanced.

While I know you were using horrible as in bad, David, that's basically just fireball damage, single target and tied to a natural attack, so it isn't outside the realms of "semi-balanced" when you look at it that way... but yeah, 1d6 + 1 per HD, is rather balanced for melee.

Dude. That's every hit. Got haste or similar? You can do it more often. Provoked attack? You did it again! You're in a mass battle, defending a fortress all day? Don't worry, it'll still be working while the wizard is left on the ground wheezing. Comparing +melee damage to a spell is... tricky.
