    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    I really like this. It still holds true to the swordmage identity established by other editions, but switches it up and gives it a 'signature mechanic' separate from that of the Paladin. What's also cool is that it wouldn't get in the way of the other established mechanics of a swordmage, like...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    I mean yeah I agree. That's exactly what the Beastmaster is in 5e. It's also a very clear demonstration that a subclass cannot fill a concept in a manner as unique or interesting as a full class, simply because it has to balance its power budget against that of the main class. The Pathfinder...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    Pathfinder 2e has a good summoner design. It's more of a focus on a single summon which is improved over time. Almost like a dedicated pet class.

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    Thing is it suits both classes a lot. So there is an argument that there is too much overlap for them to both be classes. But then that opens up the argument that in that case the class should have been designed to be able to satisfy both the divine and arcane gish characters, rather than...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    Trouble is in 5e, the subclass is quite minor in the power budget next to the main class. So sure you can say eldritch knight or battlemaster isn't that good at replicating the swordmage or warlord. But it doesn't matter what subclass you come up with, it still needs to be balanced against the...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    It's less the difference between a 1/3 and 1/2, and more a load of other abilities which set them apart. As eldritch knight is tied to the fighter power budget, all the things which set the gishes apart in prior editions have had to be axed, nerfed, or delayed to high level. Like for example...

    5.5E New Classes for 5e. Is anything missing?

    I think most classes are covered, but there are still a few which could be added which are not currently available in 5e. And even with those missing ones, you can make crude/janky approximations of them. That is warlord, swordmage, and psion.

    D&D 5E Should All Subclasses Be Gained at 1st Level?

    How much impact do you think subclasses should have on the core class compared to in 5e?

    D&D 5E A "Fewer" Features Variant!?! (+)

    Careful you'll give WotC ideas....

    D&D 5E Point buy vs roll

    I've used both and I definitely prefer point buy overall. Rolled stats just end up with a party member having what's essentially a fodder character who is often destined to die pretty fast. That said when I next make a character in person with my group I'll probably use rolled as I've not had a...

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    Yep same. At this point it's pretty much assumed. Would much rather it was rare with only a few species having it.

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    I'm not a fan of PB based features on classes or subclasses due to the risk of multiclass shenanigans. I like it on racial features as it keeps them scaling nicely over the course of the game and ensures they remain relevant even at later levels.

    D&D 5E A Compilation of all the Race Changes in Monsters of the Multiverse

    Lots of things I really like. Some things I dislike. The PB times per long rest is something I really like for species mechanics, as it keeps them scaling over the game. It's nice to see certain genasi as less useless as they're my favourite race. However I absolutely hate the fact that they...

    D&D 5E List of All 33 Races in Mordenkainen's Monsters of the Multiverse

    Found the person who has never used rolled stats.

    D&D 5E To much 5th edition content?

    I feel it's pretty baked in when your warlord yelling at people gets counterspelled. Or they randomly lose the ability to yell at people in an anti magic field. Or they have to yell at people through a spellcasting focus.
