Can someone do xanathar's update?
Hello, I love this guide and you have helped me select spells and a good path for the character I am building. I did noticed that the Grave Domain was not covered. What are your thoughts on that? Would it be on par with Death? Also, do you have any other guides of this nature for other classes? Just getting back into D&D and I am going to be in a group with all new players so I am sure they would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.
If you click on the Google Docs link, it seems pretty up to date, with Xanathar’s included. I would do that - actually I did that! It shows up much better on my phone that way and has all the subclasses covered.
When discussing sorcerous origins, OP mentions Chosen by the Gods and has it highlighted in gold, meaning its excellent. He goes on to talk about giving sorcerers extra spells with it... but I can't seem to find a thing about it anywhere!
He has it under the Unearthed Arcana list.. which UA can I find this in??
I joined this forum JUST to say!
...You forgot Tidal Wave in 3rd level spells.
As originally published by RhaegarT on the Wizards of the Coast message boards
Xanathar’s Guide (Some were also previously in the EE Player’s Companion):
Catnap: Can give willing targets a short rest in only 10 minutes. Very DM- and campaign-specific but could be nice if your DM makes it hard to do normal short rests.
Enemies Abound: Sort of a single-target confusion/fear. Not bad but there are better spells.
Erupting Earth: AoE for some damage and difficult terrain.
Flame Arrows: Great to cast on your ranger’s arrows, but requires concentration and there are better buffs to cast, like haste.
Melf’s Minute Meteors (Fire Dragon): Requires concentration but could be helpful to improve burst damage and bonus-action economy (when not using Quicken). A 3rd-level concentration spell hurts when there are so many other good options though.
Thunder Step: An escape teleport combined with a nice AoE damage effect.
Tidal Wave: AoE damage and prone effect, that also douses flames. Could have good situational uses.
Wall of Water: Decent wall spell.
Welcome to the forum, but that was not the most impressive first post. It ignores the bolded and large beginning of the post:
This was saved when the WotC forums shut down is 2015. It has not been taken over by the owner and Mistwell isn't trying to claim RhaegarT's work as his own and update it.
Tidal Wave came out in Xanathar's Guide to Everything that was published in 2017, would most definitely not be there. Nor would any of the other XGtE spells that Sorcerers get, a fairly large list which you missed in your criticism.
Alternately, if you looked at the Google Docs version, which is getting maintained, you will notice that Tidal Wave is listed:
Regardless of the history, a more positive introduction to the community would be "Hey, I noticed this spell isn't there so here's a write-up and a rating so we can improve this". Community feedback is common, take a look at the various guides here.
As it is, it comes across as bragging that the only reason you bothered to create an account was to call out someone's mistake. Which really wasn't one.
Looking forward to having you as a positive member of the community.
