As long as i get to be the frog
It’s to see how a fighter and wizard damages compare under our reasonable set of assumptions.So is the current "challenge" with @FrogReaver and @EzekielRaiden to see if the Fighter can out damage the Wizard over the typical adventuring day?
It's a long thread!
If so, I would hope the fighter does (out damage the wizard) and does so decisively! It's the fighters main and mostly only schtick (outside of a few small other tricks).
For a wizard, damage is but one of multiple options, and often - especially when part of a group, far from the best one. And that's only talking about combat.
For me this exercise helps explore the limitations and merits of the arguments that fighters are strong enough at combat that they are justified in missing out on out of combat features. Or alternatively that they are strong enough at combat that they can sacrifice some combat prowess while still remaining good at it and gain some out of combat capabilities.
