As everyone will admit, there were many problems with Aurumoth, beyond just abilities. In fact, we had an entire thread
dedicated to talking about where it was that we messed up most. However, with that said, there are problems every CAP project, and I doubt any one we could look back on and say that every decision made was right. As such, we are not likely going to be changing anything about Aurumoth any time soon.
The CAP project is about the process and what we learn from it, not simply the creatures we create. Aurumoth may not embody what the concept we chose set out to do, but it is a testiment to the effort put forward by the community, however flawed it may be.
