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

    Correct, you either go Polearm or Shield Mastery. Great Weapon Mastery gets you a bonus action sometimes, when you crit or kill something. Bonus action attacks get the benefit of the LVL 11 feature that adds d8 radiant damage to attacks, so with PAM you get that d4 +d8 (radiant) + full ability...

    We have a group that is the Group Of Saves, with a Monk and a Paladin to boost saves and PC paranoia to take all precautions. It shouldn’t be too much of a hurdle. If a PC was in the chest and the Paladin is in range I would give them a boost.

    A break check wouldn’t technically be damage, but you have to touch it unless they use a battering ram. Use help actions to give the attacker advantage to land a critical hit. Once you break it everyone is safe right? I don’t have module with me. I think the idea IIRC was if anyone got...

    I would treat the CON damage as exhaustion levels, 5e doesn’t support ability drain. If not, a long rest seems appropriate or a lesser restoration spell or both. In this case the monk will be fully exhausted if the dispel magic doesn’t work. As far as Dispel Magic, the spell affect seems like...

    While that is RAW, I wouldn't allow a staff to be used one handed in game, its CHEESE factor is very high. If you allow that because its official, then you should also take your mount into every dungeon that has a large creature and use lance for d12 damage as has been suggested on the forums...

    What he means is all reaction attacks require your DM to provoke the attack. Some won’t, they have their monsters somehow “know” you have a reach attack ready. This is less of an issue as you level up as more creatures will just be bigger then you and so won’t have to provoke an attack or just...

    The changes to Shield Master did not make it into any official publication, just his twitter feed and a Sage Advice. I would not change it from how it was before, it just reduces options for the players, play it as JC intended and few people would take it.

    BTW an advantage of using a d10 pole-arm like a halberd and taking GW fighter at second level is it allows you to ask DM to use a d12 instead of a d10 with the re-roll feature. The average damage is identical and you get to use the d12 that comes with every dice set and you don’t waste time on...

    1. Sure but don’t need to. 2. It would but see 1. Above 3. Shield and board would be interesting while flying since you can use Shield Mastery feat while flying to prone other flying creatures which causes them to fall. Or shove riders off the creatures they are flying on top of to make...

    Wrong, this is the correct forum. Optimization of the numbers on your sheet is maybe %20 of optimization of your PC, how to interface your PC with your groups needs and how to play at the table to maximize your effectiveness is the other %80.

    AoW is tougher then any published adventures as published adventures are meant to be fleshed out but few really do it, AoW is already fleshed out.

    At the levels you are discussing you are chasing a few points of damage vs creatures that will have hundreds. It’s like the people that weigh oranges when they are 3 for $1 trying to get the 3 heaviest ones. There are more important things to think about in prep for the table, like how to...

    Hah, I played it different. I had everybody apart and then Badlands revenge charge the PCs (double move for 60’) and the dervishes charge them also, on horses they get there in one turn. This creates a fur ball, with the elves shooting into it.

    You don’t need Rakanian, but Warlord seems appropriate. I am going to use magic weapons to up the challenge. I will give the players the equipment from Pitch Blade if they demand it as compensation for blatant rules violation if the RP well. Instead of badger I will use a dire tiger or...

    Why do you care? The actual difference isn’t worth worrying about but how you RP the whole thing is. Do you move with the speed of your God or Lay the Pimp Hand of righteousness on them. Don’t chase a small number you can’t catch.

    I am not confused about warcaster. You can take OppAtt on your own turn, so if you have some effect that makes them move on your turn you can take an OppAtt also, using a spell if you have warcaster. An example is a Bard, cast Dissonant Whispers, force their move using their reaction, then...

    If you are only one in front your better off just being a full Paladin. I like Crown in those cases because you get Spirit Guardians, you slow them down so they cant get past you and you can also just run the area of affect over them or they can be pushed or pulled into it as damage is once per...

    For the spear users this is interesting BTW. It doesn’t apply in D&D but it’s still pretty neat on why Spears were used so often. https://youtu.be/uLLv8E2pWdk As far as pre-buffing, if you are not pre-buffing at least half the time then look around the table and figure out who to slap among...
