    D&D 5E shilelagh, great club and GWM - does this work?

    Does this combo work for a Ranger with the Drudic Warrior fighting style? While I am at it, I think the Ranger class is the only way to get Drudic warrior fighting style. I do not think you can get this style through a feat, is that correct?

    D&D 5E Is favored enemy and natural explorer really that bad?

    Inspired by the thread on favored foe, I figure I will talk about favored enemy. With XGE and Tasha's I no longer think the Ranger is underpowered, even without the new optional features. Using a few of the subclasses, the Ranger class holds up well even without the new features. That said...

    D&D 5E can a Rogue reroll a SA dice with the piercer feat?

    I have a Rogue that primarily uses a heavy crossbow. He occasionally uses a whip or short sword, not often though. I was considering piercer vs elven accuracy. Key question is can the Rogue reroll a sneak attack dice instead of the d10. For example if he rolls an 9 with the crossbow and a 4...

    D&D 5E sleep vs tasha's laughter

    Which one would you pick for a multi-class 4/2 arcane trickster/wizard? At 4th level rogue I get another spell which must be an enchantment or illusion. I already have charm person and disguise self, there is not a lot left that excites me. Sleep is pretty weak for a 6th level character...

    D&D 5E Can I cast a reaction spell and an action/BA spell on my turn.

    I know there is a general rule about only casting one spell on a players turn, so you can't use both an action spell and a bonus action spell. Does this apply for reaction spells too? RAW reaction spells can be cast on your turn if the trigger happens - example you start falling on your turn...

    D&D 5E booming blade plus shove as a tactic - does this work?

    I have a Arcane Trickster-bladesinger with booming blade cantrip. I am thinking of using a tactic where I use booming blade and then use a shove for my second attack. The Character has expertise in athletics, so she is pretty good at shoving even though she has an 8 strength. Question I have...

    D&D 5E Does a character holding a missile weapon get an OA attack?

    The rules for AOO states you can make a melee opportunity attack when a hostile creature moves out of reach. It does not specify that you need to be holding or use a melee weapon for this attack. So if you are holding a bow can you hit someone with it as an improvised weapon, or...

    D&D 5E Why are folks down on the Phantom Rogue

    I noticed several on another thread down voted the Phantom Rogue. Why is that? When I look at the subclass,"whispers of the dead" seems to be an awesome ability at 3rd level, allowing proficiency in any tool or skill for a day. It would seem this has all sorts of utility from identifying...

    D&D 5E Best rolls I have ever got

    With Tasha's and a PHB half elf here are my 1st level ability scores. I have been playing D&D since 1981 and these are the best rolls I have ever got at 1st level: After half elf +1 Dex, +2Int, +1 Charisma S12 D16 C12 I20 W16 Ch14 I am going to start as an artificer with guild artisan...

    D&D 5E Do Assassins suck?

    I am looking at subclass options for my 2nd level half elf Rogue in a campaign I am playing. I was thinking Assasin but I keep reading how awful it is. So far he is the gadget guy and face in the party, with a ton of proficiencies, and a 14 Charisma and 16 Dex. he only has a 10 constitution...

    D&D 5E Do I get sneak attack if I throw a Rapier or whack someone with my heavy crossbow

    Assuming I meet the other criteria. The rules are pretty clear that a thrown rapier has a 20/60 range and does 1d4. A heavy crossbow you swing at someone likewise does 1d4 (and so does a hand crossbow which makes no sense). The rules for sneak attack say .... "The attack must use a finesse or...

    D&D 5E Ranger with spear, shield and polearm master feat

    I am starting a new game with a V human Ranger S16, D14, C14, I10, W13, Ch12 Thinking about getting polearm master and using a spear and a shield. Spear damage one-handed is not great, but I could get a 17 AC with a chain shirt. and at 2nd level I could pick up dueling to get +2 damage on both...

    D&D 5E Abusing Tasha's racial proficiency swaps

    According to Tasha's characters can sway weapon proficiencies for tools. As I understand it there is no limit to this. So an Elf fighter (who has martial weapons proficiency anyway) can and really should swap away all these for four different tools .... enabling said character to start the...

    D&D 5E gloomstalker figthing in darkness and being invisible in darkness

    RAW Doomstalker - While in darkness, you are invisible to any creature that relies on darkvision to see you in that darkness. So my interpretation of this if fighting Drow or Svirfneblin or anything else that lives its life in darkness using darkvision, that they are invisible, they can't be...

    D&D 5E Anyone played a Phantom? Advice on multi-class build.

    I have a low-level half-elf multiclass Rogue-twilight cleric. Curently 1/1. This is the first time I have played a Cleric in 5E at all. The character uses a heavy crossbow primarily and occasionally a whip and is primarily a Rogue. The next 4 levels will be all Rogue. Character has a S10...

    D&D 5E artificer initiate, fey touched and shadow touched vs magic initiate and spell slots

    In Tasha's artificer initiate, fey touched and shadow touched all give extra spells. They all also have a clause - "You can also cast the spell using any spell slots you have." or similar This clause about using slots is not in the old magic initiate feat and it makes that feat significantly...

    D&D 5E Making an multi-attack with a non-light weapon in each hand

    The term "two-weapon fighting" in 5e refers specifically to a bonus attack. The rules state that both weapons must be light (barring a feat) and the character does not receive damage bonus from the offhand. I believe RAW this only refers to using the bonus action to attack with a second weapon...

    D&D 5E Sneak attack with disadvantage plus advantage allowed?

    According to the PHB Rogues can get SA under a variety of circumstances if they do not have disadvantage. Disadvantage pretty much cancels all SAs. What if they have both advantage and disadvantage. I know it is a normal attack roll in such a case, but does this cancel the "having...

    D&D 5E rogue-bladesinger?

    Has anyone tried this combo? I have played bladesinger before but I never multiclassed one of them and I have always thought it was a bad idea to multiclass them beacues you need to spam shield and can not afford to lose the slots. I joined a group though and the character I wanted to play was...

    D&D 5E Hiding with spirit guardians

    Do you let players hide or give them a disadvantage if they have spirit guardians active. It would seem the spirits flying around you would give away your location.
