The obvious (IMO) followup to this poll never happened, so now here it is.

"While only a microscopic fraction of players are believed to be playing on post-20th level games, the chances are that (as long as you actually grabbed that DMG) you should have seen the epic boon list on page 232 of the DMG. So I decided to make a poll to see which ones are preferred over others most unwanted, out of sheer curiosity."

Due to the pick 5 poll design, it's entirely possible that some boons end up ranked high on both polls (polarizing!) or low on both polls (middling).

Personally, I don't care for "numbers go up until I win" stuff. Things like Peerless Aim and Ability Score Increase seem really dull compared to some of the other more flavorful options on the list (like Fire Soul or Unfettered).

True, flavor (or lack thereof) is a valid consideration for build options. IMO things like dimensional travel are even worse than the pluses, because the ability is both common (multiple subraces and classes already do that) and weak.
