Fanaelialae said:Yeah, the FAQ mentions that the benefits of the Fighter's Combat Challenge ability only apply to marked targets. Regardless, I can't imagine why the fighter wasn't sticky vs his mark. The fighter gains a free attack against the mark almost no matter what and he hits fairly hard (2d6+3= 10 avg). Was the fighter just rolling terribly?
Huh, I remember the fighter as much better in playtesting - before the clarification. Still, same idea applies, he's holding down the fort.
JohnBiles said:Given you can only rest 1/24 hours to get back dailys, there are plenty of ways to discourage people from trying to take an extended rest after every encounter.
Yeah, but they're the same ways you discourage back in 3e and earlier. Still, I've always had the experience that I've never had a problem with the "15-minute workday" any any edition of D&D, so it doesn't matter to me. And I'm willing to bet that in playtesting, the majority of players didn't feel deprived enough to just quit adventuring without their dailies, either.
