This week's Unearthed Arcana from WotC's Mike Mearls and Jeremy Crawford introduces new cleric domains of the domains of the Forge, the Grave, and Protection. Let us know in the comments what you think!
I wouldn't say that. +1 plate mail is still pretty rare even at higher levelsForge domain: Blessing of the Forge grants you a free, +1 weapon or armor at 1st level. Don't like! OP at 1st level, very weak at later levels.
Heh, this was actually my favorite. I like playing protector type classes, and this ability reminds me of the fighter fighting style from earlier playtest packets. I love it. To each their own obviously.Protection Domain: Kinda Meh...
Forge domain: Blessing of the Forge grants you a free, +1 weapon or armor at 1st level. Don't like! OP at 1st level, very weak at later levels.
Grave domain: I like this one! A lot!! Great for a cleric of Kelemvor. Channel domain feature inflicts vulnerability on your target for the next attack that hits it. Not only that, you can turn a crit into a normal hit at 6th level.
Protection Domain: Kinda Meh...
I think that an argument could be made that the Cleric is the easiest class to make acceptable new subclasses (Divine Domains) from.I actually really like all of these. There are a few details I wouldn't mind seeing tweaked a bit, but on the whole, I think this is one of the more successful subclass-focused UAs.
Yeah...I agree with you here. They could really use some new spells.Pretty interesting. Definitely a few of the very few niches that are similar to existing options but could stand to be filled (Protection -> War; Forge -> Knowledge; Grave -> Death). I'm especially sympathetic to Grave since Anubis was close to my heart recently.
A little disappointed they didn't try to go above and beyond the domain perspective, but eh...that's probably a pet concern.
