2016 February Survey

Wizards of the Coast D&D - Fri, 02/05/2016 - 09:00
Type: FeaturesAuthor: Mike MearlsBanner: Thumbnail (869x490): Text: 

Rune magic and our inaugural prestige class, the rune scribe, met with mostly positive results. We have some room to improve the runic magic items and how they interact with the prestige class. However, the really interesting piece comes down to the overall reaction to prestige classes.

We’re definitely seeing mixed responses to the concept. Of those of you who played third edition D&D, nearly 90% of you used prestige classes. However, overall support for them fell short of those marks. Just short of 60% of players want to use them in fifth edition. It’s interesting to see that while prestige classes saw a lot of use, many players didn’t particularly like the concept. It’s definitely something for us to consider as we examine the concept for fifth edition.

We also asked for feedback on a variety of Underdark-themed subclasses we released as part of UA. Everything from that article was highly rated, especially the shadow sorcerous origin. The roleplay elements added to that option and the Undying Light patron were especially welcome features. Aside from some tweaks to specific elements of class features, it looks like they are fairly balanced, clear options for the game.

The new choices for the Fighting Style class feature, though as highly rated as the other options, tended to have a bit more negative reaction at the cost of people who were neutral to them. These options look like they need a balance pass against existing Fighting Style choices.

As for this month’s survey, it dives into the class options released in January in the Kits of Old article. It also asks for some basic information about who you are so we can better understand who’s answering these surveys. Thanks for taking the time to answer our queries!

Publication date: 02/05/2016Introduction: In our last survey, we asked you to rate material from two of the prior Unearthed Arcana articles. Here’s a quick summary of our findings.Tags: Featuresexternal_urls:  External url: http://sgiz.mobi/s3/09c1542a58fdExternal url description: Take the Survey Now Texture banner: Show

Web Spell in Action on Battle Mat

Web Spell in Action on Battle Mat

Web creates a many-layered mass of strong, sticky strands. These strands trap those caught in them. The strands are similar to spider webs but far larger and tougher. These masses must be anchored to two or more solid and diametrically opposed points or else the web collapses upon itself and disappears. Creatures caught within a web become entangled among the gluey fibers. Attacking a creature in a web won’t cause you to become entangled.

Psionics and the Mystic – Take Two

Wizards of the Coast D&D - Mon, 02/01/2016 - 12:47
Type: FeaturesAuthor: Mike Mearls with Jeremy CrawfordSubtitle: Unearthed ArcanaBanner: Thumbnail (869x490): Text: 

These unofficial game mechanics are in draft form, usable in your campaign but not fully tempered by playtests and design iterations. They might be unstable; if you use them, be ready to rule on any issues that come up. They’re written in pencil, not ink. For these reasons, material in this column is not legal in D&D Adventurers League events.

This month, Unearthed Arcana returns to the mystic character class and the rules for psionics. Based on the playtest feedback you sent us, there are a number of changes you can expect:

  • The class now goes to 10th level. The core concepts had enough support that we feel confident moving forward with them.
  • Psionics is more flexible. You have a psychic focus, which allows you to pick one discipline and gain a constant, special benefit from it. Otherwise, you can expend points to use any discipline you know.
  • Psionics now includes psionic talents, the equivalent of a spellcaster’s cantrips.
  • Psionic disciplines are now available to all mystics, regardless of mystic order. However, your order grants you a benefit for using its associated disciplines.

You can expect a survey asking for feedback on these draft rules in a month or so. At this point, we’re not necessarily tied to any of these options. This effort is merely a first draft to gauge where we should start and what kind of approach to psionics in fifth edition will work best. Read on and enjoy.

Publication date: 02/01/2016Introduction: The material presented in Unearthed Arcana ranges from game mechanics that we might publish someday to house rules from our D&D campaigns that we want to share with you.
