D&D 5E Metallic Dragonborn Fey Wanderer with dragon fear feat


I was thinking of good build options with Fizban's and thought of a metallic Dragon Born Fey Wanderer Ranger.

Starting stats:

Pick up Dragon Fear at 4th level.

When angered, you radiate menace. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Strength, Constitution, or Charisma score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • Instead of exhaling destructive energy, you can expend a use of your Breath Weapon trait to roar, forcing each creature of your choice within 30 feet of you to make a Wisdom saving throw (DC 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier). A target automatically succeeds on the save if it can’t hear or see you. On a failed save, a target becomes frightened for 1 minute. If the frightened target takes any damage, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Since you replace a use of your breath, this means if you are using the new Dragonborns you can use it as half of an attack AND you can use it #prof per day, For metallics, at 5th level you get an extra use on top of this as replacement for the metallic breath. That is putting fear on all enemies within 30 feet 4 times a day at 5th level as half of an attack action!

It gets even better at 7th level when you can combine it with beguiling twist .... all without concentration!

At 8th level pick up another half feat (shadow touched?) to boost wisdom to 18 and boost the beguiling twist save.

This is on top of all the Ranger and Fey wanderer abilities and spells you get.

How powerful would this be?
