    D&D 5E How long would it take to mine a gold vein in medieval times?

    Humans probably 10 feet a month, Dwarves or Sverfneblin could probably do about 10 feet a day, Drow with enslaved Umber Hulks probably 10 feet an hour.

    D&D 5E Ashardalon Stride + Haste

    I have a bladesinger with a Shield Guardian. Thinking about using Haste (cast by the shield Guardian) plus Ashardalon's Stride upcast at 4th level (cast by bladesinger). My understanding here is the Shield Guardian is the one concentrating on Haste so the bladesinger can concentrate on...

    D&D General Mechanical differences between AD&D and Basic?

    basic had 3 alignments instead of 9. Monster stats were different, combat was less complex with just initiative, no speed factors weapon length, or missile then melee mechanic. the ac tree was slightly different with fewer types of armor. there were no weapon bonuses vs specific armor type...

    D&D 5E Deleting Bonus Actions

    Non-nova - a 5th level Monk with PAM and dual wielder can make 5 attacks every turn, without using a single ki. spear, spear, offhand attack, martial arts, butt of spear. If he spends a ki he gets another. This really breaks the action economy. Even just a single class, take the bladesinger...

    D&D 5E Deleting Bonus Actions

    I think it is pretty balanced as is though.

    D&D 5E Comparing Monk DPR

    IF it is not breaking the game then you should keep it as is. Going by the guidelines in the DMG - 37 adventuring days done "by the book" should get you to 20th level. So that is 37,000gp total spent on mage armor between 1st and 20th level and another $53k spent during days of adventuring at...

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    A longbow does less damage and more importantly can not be used by a Rogue. If you want to compare a heavy crossbow to a Rogue weapon you need to compare it to a shortbow or light crossbow. As long as we arre talknig about what we have never seen - I've never seen a Rogue with higher than a...

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    That is not what I think he said. He said he would allow it as DM because he allows liberal use of improvised weapons That is why I mentioned WOTC employees in my thread. The description of the spell says you need a weapon worth 1sp. Shadow Blade is not that so RAW it should not be used...

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    A Rogue does not get shield proficiency unless they multiclass or use a feat to get moderately armored (which would bring them where the Ranger is to start).

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    I have played a Rogue with a heavy crossbow and it absolutley does change the dynamic when you combine SA with a H. crossbow with things like piercer, sharpshooter (allowing SA at will at 400' range) and elven accuracy (getting more crits). I have never used it with XBE, because I never had...

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    One less skill is halfway between the top skill classes and the bottom skill classes, further the Ranger also can have expertise and extra movement (through deft explorer) or extra languages (through natural exporer) to boot. Finally the Ranger subclasses generally bring far more out of combat...

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    An AT can not use both BB/GFB and shadowblade. These are either-or. Booming blade has a material component cost, so you need to use an actual weapon worth 1sp for the BB/GFB attack. BB/GFB also uses the cast a spell action meaning you can't do TWF. I realize a lot of tables houserule this...

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    The Ranger has more out of combat abilities (more skills, more languages, expertise ....) than either of these, so they should not measure up in combat I don't think.

    D&D 5E What Is Sneak Attack "Equal" To, Balance-wise?

    I would get rid of extra attack and make their hit dice d8. If you want to keep d10 hit dice I would make it every 3 levels instead of every two. Compared to a Rogue SA, the Ranger gets more weapon options, including heavy crossbow which is the best in the game as well as better armor and...
