    D&D 5E Paladin/possible sorcerer dip build help (Gritty Realism game)

    So, I will be participating in a gritty realism game shortly. Short rests take 8 hours, long rests take 7 days. I need to be the party face and tank. I love paladins anyway, so this is great. Wants: -6th level paladin aura -Heavy Armor Master feat -some cantrips (before TPK last game, we were...

    XGtE: are any of those flavor magic items any good?

    They seem like a lot of fun.

    Party face build

    This seems like a fun build if there is a lot of socializing or researching, but do you get bored in combat? It just seems like there’s very little for you to do.

    D&D 5E Yet Another Arcane Trickster / Bladesinger Thread: The Concentration Problem

    Nice write up. Would you consider losing that last ASI and throwing in one (maybe 2) fighter levels? Archery fighting style helps so much if you plan on using that hand crossbow.

    Is using a familiar in combat to grant advantage a common tactic?

    I’m thinking of either an eldritch knight or arcane trickster build where some kind of bird familiar swoops in and grants advantage. This would be especially useful for a rogue who will get sneak attack virtually every turn this way.

    I stumbled upon an old fighter/ fiend bladelock guide. Does this really work? It just seems really, really good in this guide. I’m going to be playing in a PHB only game soon, and this is very interesting to me. Additionally, would you add a second...

    D&D 5E Best Adventurer's League single classed gish that is a full spellcaster

    I assume you start as a Fighter, Paladin, or Cleric, for the heavy armor and more hit points. What feat works for these builds? I would think war caster would be your best feat at level 1, but you can't take it if you can't cast spells at level 1.

    Combat Cleric help please.

    Hey guys. I'm not too familiar with 3.5. I'm playing in a game with a level 4 Cleric. I wanted to make a Cleric who would be good in combat, and heal as an afterthought, but I want to be mono-classed. I chose a dwarf (I love dwarves) Cleric of Haela Brightaxe. The war domain gave me the...

    D&D 5E STR and DEX fighter stupid?

    If you're playing the numbers game, you should go for one or the other as a Fighter.

    D&D 5E Treantmonk's Guide to Wizards 5e

    X2! I'm dying to see what you think of the Bladesinger!! On edit: I'm pretty sure the new Arcana domain is favorable for a Cleric 1/Wizard X!

    D&D 5E Optimizing Favored Soul Sorcerer

    I agree. Perhaps the favored soul will still pick a domain, and have those domain spells as an option instead of a flat bonus. That seems a bit more balanced.

    D&D 5E DM's: what do you do with players who want to switch characters?

    Interesting. I plays Dark Sun and this sounds vaguely familiar. I don't intend on making the my games deadly, unless a player does something really stupid. I think I'd let people come back with a different character, but he'd be at the beginning of the lowest level character in the party.

    D&D 5E Powergaming a Barbarian 5

    Hmm, very true. I think the Champion sticks more true to the character than Rogue does. Plus more HP, and the fighting style helps too.

    D&D 5E Powergaming a Barbarian 5

    Actually, Blue, I was wrong: I shouldn't be concerned with the racial critical hit die being a little lower. If a crit is scored, the sneak attack dice are doubled anyway. Let's assume an 18 STR Barbarian 5 Fighter 3 crit w/ greataxe: 3d12 + 4 (23.5 avg) Barbarian 5 Rogue 3 crit w/ rapier...
