Yes you can cast a Bonus Action spell and still attack with a two-handed weapon. Taking your hand off it in the first place should not require any action expenditure - you are just letting go of something, same as if you dropped it. Reloading is part of the attack action with a ranged weapon. To reload, you must first take one hand off the crossbow. If ...

From page 69 of the Player's D&D Basic Rules: You can take a bonus action only when a special ability, spell, or other feature of the game states that you can do something as a bonus action. Emphasis mine. This doesn't grant you a bonus action, but instead grants you something to do with your bonus action, which you always have, whether you can ...

There has been a lot of confusion around this point. You can only take one Bonus Action per turn. A Bonus Action isn't something you have or don't have, or are granted by spells or class features in the game. It's just that there are only certain things that you can do with a Bonus Action. See here for another (probably clearer) explanation of this issue. ...

There is a lot to clarify Templates: Not very many templates add Hit Dice, so all that would do is increase your Challenge Rating and Effective Character Level. Monster Class: Only your levels with Hit Dice would count as a Character Level. Levels with no Hit Dice is "buying off your level adjustment" and only increase your Effective Character Level. ...

Not normally. Activating a wand is either a standard action (core) or the same action it takes to cast the spell the wand holds (Rules Compendium). Even under Rules Compendium, I do not know of any spell that can be cast in place of an attack.1 That said, some touch-attack spells last for multiple touches; chill touch is the classic case of that. So you can ...

I'd say "Show them!" is the best you could do. The bad guys have all the options as well. Let them use Create Advantage and Overcome to their advantage and let the players figure it out. My players learned to use these "obscure" actions, when the Evil Spirit Ninja created the aspect "I'm to fast for you to even attack me!" on himself. This (being an ...

Not due to their BAB, but a Magus, specifically can cast and attack as part of the same action. Normal spellcasters do not have this capability, unless explicitly granted by feat, prestige class, or other capability. The Magus has two relevant abilities. Spell Combat : At 1st level, a magus learns to cast spells and wield his weapons at the same time. ...

No, you cannot. Casting is a standard action, and no matter what you only get 1 standard action per round. Multiple attacks due to high BAB changes your attack from a standard action to a full round action. You can, however, take the feat Quicken Spell so that you cast one spell as a standard action and one as a swift action, but you still only get one ...
