My understanding is as follows: Action surge allows for the use of an additional action on the player's turn. As the action hierarchy goes (Normal action, Bonus action, and Free action) a player may use a lesser action in place of a greater action. i.e. using a bonus action instead of normal. Therefore an Action surge could net you a Normal action ...

Wild Shape I would personally rule that, for the purposes of Swift Avenger, you use your ranger levels instead of your druid levels. After all, ranger is the class that actually grants wild shape, while druid does not. So I would rule that you have the wild shape of a 14th-level druid (from scout 8/ranger 6 and Swift Avenger), and that this would still be ...

TL/DR: It's +6k2. Normally, you can spend a Void Point once a Round to "roll an additional die, keep an additional die". The Way of the Phoenix lets you spend two VP on a single enhancement roll, getting the benefit of "roll an additional die, keep an additional die" twice. Daredevil lets you substitute each "roll an additional die, keep an additional die"...

So far as I'm aware, there are no guidelines published by Wizards of the Coast for a PC to create a special ability, and, while guidelines for PC-created spells and magic items exist, those are only guidelines, the results of using them still subject to DM oversight. (So you know, I also don't know of a way to avoid needing the DM approval for anything a ...

For example, if you bond with a flame tongue (longsword) and send the weapon to the feature’s extradimensional space, the weapon comes back as ...

Arcane recovery does not require a long rest between uses Recent errata have clarified when "once a day" actually means "once between long rests" for some powers - but notably not for Arcane Recovery. These edits were not done ad hoc, but in preparation for a revised printing of the Players Handbook. The errata state "Recent printings of the book include ...

It is unclear, however I lean towards it meaning that you can use it once between long rests. "Once per day" occurs three times in the PHB, two of which have since been errata'd to mean you can re-use it after a long rest (and must have a long rest in order to re-use it): Drow Magic (p. 24). Here “once per day” means you must finish a long rest to cast ...

From the official Player's Handbook: Arcane Recovery: "Once per day when you finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots to recover" So first off, only a short rest is required. As for the "once per day" part, this could mean two things depending on interpretation: 1.) You can only use this ability once between 12am and 11:59pm(or ...
