      Weapon Focus works just fine on a claw by the way.

      Thanx.

        Hello Arjan!

        Which version of PCGen are you running and what data sets do you have loaded?

        Are you having a problem with a hombrew creature or is it one of those included in a standard PCGen data set?

        I have recently had an issue while building a new set where the natural weapons weren't being equipped and until I manually equipped then they would not appear in the Imropved Natural Attack pop-up.

          Sorry about that. I'm using 5.17.6 and the latest nightly build dataset for the RSRD. I retried it just now with only RSRD loaded, clean character, no homebrew.

          The natural attacks are automatically equiped. I removed them. This made Improved Natural Attack unavailable. I re-equiped the claw which made Improved Natural Attack available again, but only for unarmed strike and grapple. Weird huh?

          Thanx,
          Arjan

          Hi, Sounds like the tag in Imp Natural Attack needs to be updated, like we did in Pathfinder. Raise a JIRA and someone will fix it. Cheers, ... -- Andrew
