D&D 5E (2014 5E!) What feats need that missing ASI???

ezo

Where is that Singe?
This is just a "Hey, what do you think?" thread. Are there any feats which don't have an ASI which you feel are weak enough they should include an ASI??

Feel free to just list yours or explain your choices as you wish. Here is a list of (most) of the feats which currently (5E 2014!!!) do not have ASIs. Which ones of these would you add an ASI, and what would you add??

You're right, of course, but I think their point is, "What you are asking for is mere months away".

Makes speculating not quite as fun as it might otherwise be.
Sure.

We are playing 5E now, and there are some feats my players have been talking about as not quite strong enough to not have an ASI.

Also, I have absolutely no intention of bothering with any 2024 material. Just because it is coming out doesn't mean everyone under the Sun is excited about it, the changes, or planning on using it.

Finally, it isn't about speculation. There's nothing to speculate about, it is simply a question about 5E (2014!): which feats are basically weak enough that they should have an ASI when the don't?
 

Horwath

Legend
1. All Tasha's feat's that are not already half feats.
2. all 1st level feats for 2024 that are in various UAs
3. most if not all racial feats from Xanatars that are not half feats.

as for PHB feats in current(2014) format:
Charger(but drop the damage to prof bonus)
defensive duelist
Dungeon delver
Elemental adept
grappler
healer
Inspiring leader(see Twilight cleric)
mage slayer
magic initiate
martial adept
medium armor master
mounted combatant
ritual caster
savage attacker(better for all to delete this feat)
skilled
skulker
spell sniper
warcaster
 



Honestly, it's probably easier (and shorter) to make a list of the feats that are strong enough to not need an ASI.
Greatweapon Master
Sharpshooter
Crossbow Expert
Polearm Master
Lucky
Shield Master if you re-write it to remove the silly limitations
Metamagic Adept

Anything else that grants a new bonus action attack option. (but not ones that expand on an existing option like two-weapon fighting)

Actually, that's a very valid point. If we consider feats like:
Greatweapon Master
Sharpshooter
Crossbow Expert
Polearm Master
Lucky
Shield Master if you re-write it to remove the silly limitations
Metamagic Adept
and maybe some others... as being representative of the base instead of the pinnacle of "power", maybe it would be easier to update everything that needs an ASI.

Here's a list of all the feats (from sources I have access to) which currently do NOT have ASIs.

I'll add this to the OP, but which ones of these would you add an ASI, and what would you add??
