The possibility of increasing the damage to 6d6 with lesser paper bomb is not too strong for players levels 1?

Greetings,

You could argue this both ways really. One the one hand it is pretty devastating, 6d6 at level 1 is almost certainly the most damage you'll do in one go.

However you need to look beyond that. First of all, to hit 6d6 you must pay 4 points of chakra, which at first level is no small amount. Assusming you are level 1 with a Constitution of 14, you'll have a chakra pool of 6 with 2 reserve. That's half your total chakra points. Next it is a licensed item (+1), so unless you've started out with the Genin feat you can't even buy it. Finally to charge it fully requires you succeeding a Chakra Control check DC 15, which at first level you've no guarantee of getting that. Even with a min-max build with Dedicated Hero 1, Wisdom 16, max ranks (4), +1 from Chakra Control talent, +1 from taking Chakra Control on occupation and +1 from Genin feat, best you have is +10 which means you can still fail 25% of the time.

To cut a long story short, it is a lot of damage but very hit and miss at level 1. The phrase "all your eggs in one basket" comes to mind. When you're elemental ninjutsu gets going, they'll be obsolete. Barring the Specialist from the Portfolio of Prestige, which is all kinds of awesome.

Kind regards,
TheTrulyAvaricious
