    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Thanks for your detailed answer again! I played a couple of sessions with my Paladin (level 3) so far. I realized that there is really a lack of possibilities using the Bonus Action. I know that this might get better in further levels, but so far I have really few spell slots and almost all...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Ah, so you suggest the best way to be Polearm Mastery without shield for triggering most OA and stay out of melee range from foes, right? Well, I guess I'm going to play my character until level 15 or so. So, this would make sense. But I also expect my DM to allow me switching fighting style on...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Your explanations are awesome! Thank you guys! @Blue: I didn't get all your explanations. But if I understand you right, your advice is to stick to Sword-and-Board and get Polearm Master with a 1H-spear, right? - high AC - good average damage due to Duelist + reaction/bonus action attack -...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Thanks for your great answer! Your argumentation is very thorough! You are totally right with Shield Master. Thought it was DM-depended (as written in this guide), but Jeremy made that quite clear. So, Shield Master is out then. Polearm Master Concerning Bonus Action you compared 2H-fighting...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Thanks for your advice! Resilient (CON): You are right. Furthermore, I think Resilient is stronger on later levels, when the proficiency bonus that is added, is higher. I even might find out that there is no need for resilient, because the Aura of Protection (adding CHA mod. to all my saves)...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Thanks for your recommendations! Oh, did I say the "t-word"? Well, actually I see my party role as "tanky DD/Support" - not just the tank. My fault. ;-) Considering your suggestions I came up with the following idea of build: Race: Fallen Aasimar Class: Pure Paladin Oath: Conquest Abilities...

    Which gods for a "good" Fallen Aasimar?

    Hi, I am playing a Fallen Aasimar that was captured by some evil faction (like drow - don't know yet). Touched by a god they felt the presence and decided to take advantage of it. They tortured and brainwashed him until his pure soul became a picture of misery. Many years have passed and he...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Thanks for your answers! Oh man, that's such a tough decision. All Oaths have pros and cons. And I am still not sure how to combine it with Aasimar. That's what I know about the character I want to play: Race: Protector Aasimar (for RP reasons) OR best optimized race (Human: Varian, Half-Elf)...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Thanks for your comment! 1.) Would it be viable to ask my DM to change an ability bonus referring to the "variant race rules"? 2.) I could ask for ST/DEX/CON. That would make Aasimar great, wouldn't it? 3.) I still don't know which setup to go for. I was thinking to either go for Polearm...

    D&D 5E [GUIDE] My Word Is My Sword: The Paladin Guide

    Hi, I was thinking about a Protector Aasimar Paladin, but from the perspective of optimization this race seems a bit behind (e. g. compared to an half-elf), isn't it? Our camptaign starts at level 3 and I am looking for a good build with Vengeance Oath. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

    Questions about creating a Drow DEX-Paladin. Any suggestions/recommendations?

    Hi! First things first: We are starting a new campaign soon. Because our DM wants some more interesting RP interactions for the new adventure, I had the idea playing a Drow Paladin. Guess, a Drow in the party will spice adventuring up for sure. ;-) I know I have to find some workarounds for...

    D&D 5E Disarming a caster's component pouch to prevent him from casting spells

    Hi, the optional rule for Disarming says: Usually a caster uses a component pouch (at least in our games). So, would you allow e.g. a ranged attacker to target the component pouch of a caster to shoot it off his grasp, then pick it up himself to prevent the caster from further spells? Kind...

    D&D 5E Xanathar's Guide: How does identifying a spell + Counterspell work?

    Hi, Xanathar's Guide says: That means, that it is not possible to anticipate a spell without using either your reaction or action. So, how can you ever specifically Counterspell using your reaction, if you already need your reaction to identify the spell? Seems like Counterspell is only...

    D&D 5E Ranged attacks from behind a corner/an object

    Hey there, I know there have been some discussions about that topic, but I couldn't find a clear answer. The rules intend that ranged attacks while hidden seem to be possible. Otherwise there wouldn't be feats like Skulker concerning this. Furthermore you wouldn't get Advantage while being...

    D&D 5E Forget about the treasure and pricing system of 5E!

    Hey there, we are currently at the very end of the campaign "Princes of the Apocalypse". Our characters are level 13 and we have dozens of thousands of gold, but we don't know on what to spend our money. The treasure system is broken. Prices are even more broken. Gold is worth nothing, if you...
