>>165885>Crits giving inspiration is a decent mechanic.
Especially considering that most DMs forget Inspiration is a thing.
New Playtest doc came out. All these changes look good so far.
They released the "Expert" classes: Rogue, Ranger and Bard (also Artificer, but that wasn't shown here).
Also they reprinted several feats.
Ranger looks a lot better with this update. It should have been a prepared caster from the start.
I'm fond of the changes to two weapon fighting too.
Bard getting Inspiration as a reaction is nice, but moving Font of Inspiration to lvl 7 is painful.
I'm okay with the Bard being prepared, but the way they're simply giving them access to the arcane list (minus several of the schools) means that Bards won't have access to a lot of their interesting spells spells that distinguish them from Wizards, including but not limited to: Heat Metal, Faerie Fire, Grow Plants, Heroism, Aid, Power Word Heal, Light, Tiny Hut, Raise Dead, Teleportation Circle, Magnificent Mansion, Heroes' Feast, Planar Binding, Create Food And Water, Awaken, Speak With Animals, Animal Friendship, Longstrider, Unseen Servant, Cloud Of Daggers, Locate Animals Or Plants, Silence (Seriously?), Zone Of Truth, Bestow Curse, Dispel Magic, Nondetection, Speak With Dead, Speak With Plants, Stinking Cloud, Glyph Of Warding, Feign Death, Dimension Door, Freedom Of Movement, Eyebite, Guards And Wards, Find The Path, Forcecage, Mordenkinen's Sword, Regenerate, Symbol, Teleport, Mind Blank, etc.
For the higher level spells it's not so bad, but for the 5 and lower ones Bards will have to wait until lvl 11 (when they get Magical Secrets) to even consider preparing them, which effectively locks a lot of those spells out of the first two tiers of play.
The Spellcasters should come out at the beginning of next month.
Watch them buff Wizard again somehow.
