    Default LA 2 Gnoll

    Monster HD suck..I think they are a waste of space on PCs. here is my alternative for a Gnoll with an LA of +2

    Ability Scores Strength +4, Constitution +2, Charisma -2.
    Gnolls are strong and hardy creatures however they are also typacly savage,unruly,and have a sense of enjoyment in intimidating others
    Size Medium.
    A gnoll’s base land speed is 30 feet.
    Darkvision out to 60 feet.
    Gnolls gain a +2 Bonus On Intimidate, Spot and Listen Checks
    +1 natural armor bonus.
    Automatic Languages: Gnoll, Common. Bonus Languages: Abyssal, Draconic, Elven, Goblin,Halfling, Orc.
    Favored Class: Ranger or Fighter.
    Level adjustment +2.

    does this seem balanced? I was also thinking of adding either Keen Senses or Scent but i felt that it may be too much

    Revised version

    Ability Scores Strength +4, Constitution +2, Wisdom +2, Charisma -2.
    Gnolls are strong and hardy creatures however they are also typically savage,unruly,and have a sense of enjoyment in intimidating others
    Size Medium.

    Right now, that's only an LA +1 race. I'd say it's objectively worse than the Goliath, which is generally a pretty nice melee race despite the LA. It either needs more stats, or more racial abilities, to compete.

    well what if we take scent into account? Im also thinking of adding proficiency with battle axes and great axes and possibly and this one is the least likely +2 on wisdom
