It is and is not a bug

I was playing recently (0.9.6) and noticed the Changelings have a -6hp modifier for being a changeling. The thing I found odd is the Changeling Enchanter does not have this modifier even though it is a changeling.

Re: It is and is not a bug

Actually all monsters are scaled differently with regards to their baseline hp/attack.

Changelings get -10% hp.
Changeling Enchanters: -20%
Changeling Mages on the other hand has +60% health to compensate for their low attack (-50% penalty).

Re: It is and is not a bug

I guess the race and class change stats for enemies as well. I was going to post what was wrong with what you said before discovering the problem with my argument. It was going to be about how earth pony have -3mp regardless of class but then I had this amazing discovery on unicorns having +15 resentence and scout having -5 resentence. Unicorns have a starting resentence of +15 unless the job is scout, then the starting resentence is +10. I was used to the race of the enemy changing the stats but not the job. I have always considered 'champion' to be a status as opposed to class as any class and race can be a champion and it is not in the name, instead found right next to other status modifiers like first strike or empowered.

Re: It is and is not a bug

Enemies in this game are simpler. They do not have class-race alignment, instead each type of the enemy is balanced separately. So guard dog and diamond dog may have nothing in common!

Champion IS not a status per se. It is merely a label assigned to the most powerful enemy (enemies) on the level. It gives certain advantages (for example you DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT PUSH CHAMPIONS!) but if I recall correctly it doesn't change the stats.

Re: It is and is not a bug

One does not simply push a champion. Not for a lack of trying on my part. Champion status modifiers: attack +22%   health +38% can not be pushed also immune to weakness can gain corruption but not sure if possible to defeat with that alone like what can be done with the player.
