revised ranger 5e

With base beastmaster you get a tissue-paper unrevivable pet that's useless in combat, a glorified mascot that's too weak, you'd get more use out of an advantage-owl familiar, or a druid can summon better stuff. At 2nd level, choose one of the following options. If you use this ability to return a former animal companion to life while you have a current animal companion, your current companion leaves you and is replaced by the restored companion. Hit Points. You are also aware of the location of any invisible creature within 30 feet of you, provided that the creature isn't hidden from you and you aren't blinded or deafened. The beast doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks when it flies out of an enemy’s reach. You lose this benefit if you move or fall prone. We have 5, and it offsets almost every single encounter.

You gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with weapon attacks against creatures of the chosen type. My big problem with the PHB ranger is that those core class abilities are just so useless. This is 99% of your problems right there. That's the class fantasy they're trying to achieve. If you are incapacitated or absent, your companion acts on its own.

I disagree very much but hey, whatever your party wants to do/restrict is really what matters.

At 3rd level, you gain one of the following features of your choice. There is a big difference between dealing +8/round to a group of wraiths at lv 6 vs a balor at lv 20. There are about 8 of us, give or take. Improved Favored Enemy isn't too strong, it is limited to two types of creatures. I thought this might be interesting for the sub. Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. The one feature I immediated changed was Natural Explorer. This is less of an issue for other subclasses. This revised version of the Ranger was created by Wizards of the Coast, aimed at addressing the class's high levels of player dissatisfaction and its ranking as D&D's weakest class by a significant margin.

Even the hunter which everyone lords. Spell save DC: 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier, Spell attack modifier: your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier. When you gain the Spellcasting feature at 2nd level, Hunter’s Mark doesn’t count against the number of ranger spells you know. The animal companion loses its Multi-attack action, if it has one. This is my issue with the PHB ranger. You really don’t have to keep track of all the one hour travel benefits. And although I see what OP is saying regarding his companion, it's dwarfed by the summoning spells issue. Primeval Awareness can be a little work for the DM giving to info, but the mosters can roam, change guard, etc. Through sounds and gestures, you can communicate simple ideas to a beast as an action, and can read its basic mood and intent. You are automatically detected if any effect or action causes you to no longer be hidden.

Nobody. At 15th level, whenever an attacker that your companion can see hits it with an attack, it can use its reaction to halve the attack's damage against it. At level 1 they player ignores non-magical difficult terrain and gets Adv. At 10th level, you can use a bonus action to magically become invisible, along with any equipment you are wearing or carrying, until the start of your next turn.

As a ranger, you gain the following class features. Fixing the action economy so it attacks with you as a reaction so you are working together as one unit AND making it revivable. Now we have two versions that are a mess.

Primeval Awareness fixes a previously dumb ability, but it is definitely a bit overturned. The game isn't designed for more than 4 PCs. The improved Favoured Enemy is really strong, though. Starting at 14th level, you can use the Hide action as a bonus action on your turn. The base Revised Ranger no longer gains Extra Attack at 5th level, as that has been pushed out to each subclass, now called Conclaves.

You're better off firing your arrows unless your pet is disposable. When you forage, you find twice as much food as you normally would. It's very powerful. I imagine that favored enemy will just get damage progression like barbarian rage, rather than a flat +4 at lv 6. So many of the class features are situational and so many of them might never get used. (I don't know what the solution is, if I had one, I would be playing a Necromancer in my current game).

If the beast has died within the last hour, you can use your action to touch it and expend a spell slot of 1st level or higher.

Stories describe primal beasts that mystically change form to align with the spirit of their companion.

I also found that for the Beastmaster the Favored Enemy was weaker because the Ranger only gets 1 Attack and the companion can get 2 but the companion will encounter resistances since their attacks are not magical.

When you gain this feature, you also learn one language of your choice. At 20th level, once on each of your turns, you can add your Wisdom modifier to the attack roll or the damage roll of an attack you make. You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest. When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1., equal the beast’s Constitution modifier + your Wisdom modifier + five times your ranger level (the beast has a number of Hit Dice [d6s] equal to your ranger level).

gave a combat power buff (which the Hunter, at least, did not need). That plan hasn’t changed. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. At 3rd level, you learn additional spells when you reach certain levels in this class if you don’t already know them, as shown in the Primal Awareness Spells table. I've been playing a Revised Ranger - Beast Master, in our Curse of Strahd campaign more or less since the UA was released. Hit: 1d6 + 3 slashing damage. A place to discuss the latest version of Dungeons and Dragons, the fifth edition, known during the playtest as D&D Next. This feature reveals which of your favored enemies are present, their numbers, and the creatures' general direction and distance (in miles) from you. It's when you know the classes already THEN you pick horizon walker.

Other classes do it better (scout rogue, various fighter subclasses) except in one niche environment, and your beast is paper thin to the point where it's a liability, which doesn't feel good or help you achieve this class fantasy of having a quite powerful beast that you work together with. It's the nature of the class. Beginning at 8th level, you can use the Dash action as a bonus action on your turn.

It's a shame they never returned to the revised ranger for a UA redraft. Your group can't become lost except by magical means. Even when you are engaged in another activity while traveling, you remain alert to danger. Here's why: it's too complex. (Unearthed Arcana; Replaces Hide in Plain Sight). This is not so easy.7 players + a DM for 8 people total.If they split, they've got two tables of 3 players each. Huh, I actively urged our new player to take the UA version, as it was more streamlined.

Just add more enemies.

As normal, your companion can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature unless its description specifies otherwise.

Your animal companion gains a variety of benefits while it is linked to you. Even a relatively low level Druid can suddenly summon 4 or 8 extra combatants into every fight, and that's a shitton of extra rolling and management. No one I know wants to play them. It also gave a combat power buff (which the Hunter, at least, did not need) with the adv on initiative and on creatures that haven't acted. * This subclass does not normally contain a 5th level feature. Beginning at 5th level, you and your animal companion form a more potent fighting team. The companion obeys your commands as best it can. At 3rd level, with 8 hours of work and the expenditure of 50 gp worth of rare herbs and fine food, you call forth an animal from the wilderness to serve as your faithful companion. Whenever you gain the Ability Score Improvement class feature, your companion's abilities also improve. If you wanna be a wilderness expert like say, aragorn.

The Unearthed Arcana source material allows for the addition of the "Extra Attack" feature at 5th level just as it is done with the Hunter Conclave.

Frankly, I wouldn’t hesitate to give the PHB version to any player who could justify it with their backstory. At 1st level, choose one type of favored enemy: beasts, fey, humanoids, monstrosities, or undead.

Favored Enemy (1) and Greater Favored Enemy (6) If your animal companion is ever slain, the magical bond you share allows you to return it to life. You can have only one animal companion at a time. 9 times out of 10 they want a pet, or to be aragorn/legolas.

As much as people like to act otherwise, the game simply is not designed or balanced for large groups. Most of that stuff is literally not even worth writing down on your sheet.

This is especially problematic for my group which is already 7 players.

There were several groups in specific rooms, but there were also supposed to wandering ones.

Which it isn't, or else you'd have not chosen BM. For instance, when you reach 5th level in this class, you can learn one new spell of 1st or 2nd level. Same goes for Necromancers with undead minions. At 18th level, when you attack a creature you can't see, your inability to see it doesn't impose disadvantage on your attack rolls against it.

When choosing such a creature, you decide whether it is a Beast of the Air or the Earth, and you determine its appearance. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature. I'd imagine when it gets officially published it'll end up as picking a second enemy, getting the bonus on saves, but not increasing the bonus to +4. Specifically thinking of the BM here but having a second character that has its own progression, stats and unique abilities is a lot to remember. It's just a big risk to take unless you want to talk to the DM about the world and campaign and such which I know a lot of people wouldn't want to do. Better still decide "movement/action/movement" for both rather then trying to break things down per character. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target.

If you wanna be a plane-shifting teleporting shifty guy, then holy hell horizon walker is amazing BUT it's not what most people are after. Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the ranger spells you know and replace it with another spell from the ranger spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots. As a bonus action, you can command the beast to make its maul attack or to Hide.

Grab outlander or phlan insurgant background and shit all over ranger. on Initiative and the ability to ignore magical difficult terrain at level 9.

Your bonus to damage rolls against all your favored enemies increases to +4. equal the beast’s Constitution modifier + your Wisdom modifier + five times your ranger level (the beast has a number of Hit Dice [d8s] equal to your ranger level), 40 ft., climb or swim 40 ft. (your choice when you bond with the beast). At the end of the 8 hours, your animal companion appears and gains all the benefits of your Companion's Bond ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a ranger spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one. It greatly increases the power and flexibility of the Ranger class. But at the same time, the release of this revision gives us a chance to talk about how a revised class can best be implemented as part of the D&D game—and how the game will evolve in the future.
