    Tomb Of Levistus: very cool yet terrible, or did I miss something?

    Also "...These effects including any remaining temporary hitpoints, all end when the ice melts." Well I guess since you're not taking damage on your turn you're only stuck in it for one turn.

    Tomb Of Levistus: very cool yet terrible, or did I miss something?

    No, I just looked again, it says "As areaction when you take damage, you can entomb yourself in ice, which melts away at the end of your next turn."

    Using Wands/Staves and Misty Step

    So are your purposely misunderstanding the question or what? Because USING a magic item is not casting a spell. 2 different actions. Just as clearly written in the rules as you're trying to argue.

    Using Wands/Staves and Misty Step

    There's a difference between a caster casting a spell, and a magic item doing it for you. Do you ever look at the rules and ask why they are written this way and the thought behind it, or do you just blindly follow?

    Using Wands/Staves and Misty Step

    So you're saying is when you're using a wand or staff, or any magic item for that matter, you still need the verbal, somatic, and material components, or do you just activate the magic item like turning on a flashlight?

    Using Wands/Staves and Misty Step

    If you're the DM, you can rule it the way you want, but the rules don't say that. It's just how you're choosing to interpret it.

    Using Wands/Staves and Misty Step

    I'm not sure why I'm just getting the reply, but you are wrong here. The reason you are wrong is because the rules are specific. Casting a spell and using a magic items are 2 different actions. The rules say "you cannot cast 2 spells. It does not say you can't use a magic item or drink a potion...

    D&D 5E Cantrip nerf (house rule brainstorm)

    Because we are talking about cantrips. When it comes to magic damage, a +1 wand would add +1 to hit ONLY, vs a +1 sword that would do +1 to both to hit and damage.

    D&D 5E Cantrip nerf (house rule brainstorm)

    My question is, why do you feel it needs to be nerfed? Like I said in may previous post, cantrips are not that strong to begin with unless of course you're playing a warlock. If you take any class that uses both cantrips and martial weapons, I.e. Battlesmith, or Eldritch Knight, they will...

    D&D 5E Cantrip nerf (house rule brainstorm)

    The issue I have with this is, cantrips are already oretty limiting. While they can get up to 4 dice in damage, in most cases because it is magic, you don't get to add any modifiers to it. Also you only get 1 attack per round in most cases. So sure when you look at max damage in a level 20...

    D&D 5E Moving out of concealment to attack - when is stealth broken?

    Rogues shouldn't try and hide in battle. Even the PHB says hiding fails automatically if someone can see you. This is why they also get sneak attack when there is an enemy next to their target. People need to understand, HIDING IS NOT INVISIBILITY.

    D&D 5E MAGIC ITEM: First Betrayer's Tail

    So the issue is when people make magic items they make them too powerful. When making magic items, here are a few questions you should ask; Who is this item for? What abilities will they already have when they get the item? Will it break the game? Will it give the weilder an unfair advantage...

    D&D 5E Boosting Sorcerers, Focus: Fun (+thread)

    First of all, if you want to be able to post your opinion and to be taken seriously, then you need to take the criticism too. Don't come here or anywhere and say "don't post if you don't agree with me" because it makes you sound like a whiner. That being said, have to ask you, did you read...

    D&D General What would a deity feel when followers pray to it?

    Have you ever played thr gane Black and White? I think that would be the best representation of what a god gets from their worshipers. For those who haven't played. There were 3 manor factors on how you the player (who is a god) influenced the world. You had a sphere of influence, this sphere...

    D&D 5E Yes, I know what RAW says, but, Effects of allowing Sneak Attack on Monk attacks.

    They could easily state that in the description of the spells, but it's ok, monks can use weapons anyway, and at I think level 6, their attacks also count as magical, so the spells aren't necessary.

    D&D 5E Yes, I know what RAW says, but, Effects of allowing Sneak Attack on Monk attacks.

    Wow I can't believe the app destroyed my pic like that. But it does say unarmed strike at the bottom of simple melee weapons. You can see the dashes for gold cost, range and special properties. Like i said, I'm not sure why they took it out of the newer printings, but it used to be there.

    D&D 5E 5E's poor book bindings

    I'm assuning your 1st books were the 1st printing. There is a known issue that the 1st printings of the core books had the glue giving up. I have the 1st printings of every book I've bought, only my PHB started falling apart because that's the book i use the most. I bought a new copy recently...

    D&D 5E Yes, I know what RAW says, but, Effects of allowing Sneak Attack on Monk attacks.

    In the 1st printing of the PHB, unarmed strike was a simple weaon attack. I'm not sure why they took that out in subsequent printings. But to address the issue, because of the way multi-classing works, i don't are a problem with being able to use sneak attack with unarmed strikes, because you...
