The riposte is not AoE. Note the wording of the feat (emphasis mine): ...you can repeat the at-will attack power's attack against that enemy as an immediate reaction. You repeat the at-will power's attack but with the Target line for the power effectively changed to "the triggering creature". The advantage of using White Lotus Master Riposte with an ...

Sorry, doesn't look like you do. In the July 2010 Errata, WotC printed this regarding White Lotus Master Riposte. Dragon 374 White Lotus Master Riposte, page 21 Replace the feat’s Benefit entry with the following text: “If you hit an enemy with an arcane at-will attack power and the enemy then attacks you before the start of ...

No. You can't swap the Healer's Lore class feature you gain from Divine Healer feat with Battle Cleric's Lore class feature. Rules-As-Written Battle Cleric's Lore is written as an Alternative Class Feature that which a cleric can take in place of Healer's Lore.1 Problem is, you are not a cleric. Divine Healer does not make you a cleric: A ...

Wormhole plunge does a few different things. First, on a hit against AC, Wormhole Plunge does Weapon+Cha mod damage. On a miss against AC, Wormhole Plunge does half damage. Second, you can teleport the target Wis mod squares. If he ends this teleport adjacent to an ally, that ally can make a melee basic attack against the target. Third, a zone is created ...

It used to one-hit kill non-flying enemies who entered the zone, but that was ridiculous so it was errata-ed. Wormhole Plunge creates a zone. Any time a creature enters the zone, the ardent can teleport it as a free action. Because teleportation, unlike forced movement, does not prevent you from putting the target in midair, ardents could teleport the ...

If PC's have no way knowing, simply don't allow them a check outright, but "advice" them they should observe the creature a little longer. In stead of a lot of attack rolls, you're going to make a lot of (hide/move silent/spot/knowledge) skill checks first, where successful knowledge checks actually represent correct interpretation of its' behavior, in stead ...

I speak as a huge 4e fan when I say that unless you really know what you are doing 4e sucks at dungeon crawling (best dungeon I ever ran I threw away XP and said "You level up once each time you enter a new level of the dungeon" - cue creative PC abseiling team and on one occasion smashing through the floor). This is because 4e is structured like a big ...

When the rules talk about squares, they are looking at the 2d map seen from above. Then, flying creatures and creatures that are on top of terrain at a different height come into the equation. The easiest way to model their interaction* is to go into full 3D mode: Areas are now cubes and creatures occupy cubes. If the now-cubic power includes a cube that ...

It's not broken, don't fix it. In the synopsis a sentence reads: "A vicious group or orc mercenaries also searches the town for the slaying stone." By default, the orcs are searching for it to give to their patron Dreus Matrand, an arcane scholar. She plans to study the slaying stone, along with other similar items, in order to recreate them. Familiarize ...

Scrolls for getting more spell variety for combat are gone, because D&D 4e character creation is about making choices and having limited power. All classes are created equal and balanced one against the others. This does not mean that a PVP encounter between single characters would be balanced, but a PVP between parties might (if both parties have the ...

It depends on the power. By default, zones cannot be moved. Some powers include wording along the lines of, "...and you may move the zone up to X squares," in their sustain lines, and so their zones can be moved each time the power is sustained. But if nothing in the power says it moves the zone, then the zone cannot be moved.

5e is not set in the Forgotten Realms. As with any other D&D edition out there, it is set in a world of your choice, be it an official world like FR or PoL, or in one you created yourself. It just so happens that the first bunch of offical adventures have been set in the Realms, and that the developers chose to have FR as the default setting, because it ...
