The canonical "true/current" version of everything is found in the compendium, here (subscription required to use as more than an index). There are, at present, three current "Cleric" classes you can play. I define a cleric class as anything that counts as a cleric for purposes of feats, beyond that of multi-class. There is the "original" Templar Cleric. ...

Page 443 of the Core Rulebook in the Identification section states: Type | Avail | Cost Fake Sin (Rating 1-6) | (Rating x 3)F | Rating x 2,500¥

The Rules Compendium has all the updated rules for the core system, like changes to skills and skill challenge DCs and whatnot. You should pick that up if you don't mind buying another book. Changes to the races and classes are pretty specific. Do you mind editing the question to list what your players are planning to play? I think the biggest change ...

Several 5e designers have addressed rules questions over twitter—Jeremy Crawford, Mike Mearls, Chris Perkins and Rodney Thompson.1 However, Mearls stated in his reddit AMA that his answers are in his experience only and Crawford is the "official rules expert." Perkins also tweeted that Crawford is the "resident rules sage" and affirmed that Crawford provides ...

No. The books are not updated; if you buy them, you are expected take care of the updates yourself, by perusing the official rule update PDFs. The alternative used to be simple: buy a subscription to D&D Insider. However, with the fifth edition coming soon, who knows how long they will keep the 4e sites running...

Essentials errata ends up with all the rest of the updates. The archive breaks it down by book.

Market price for the druid's vestment is 10,000 gp. The 2012 printing of the Dungeon Master's Guide gives the druid's vestment market price in both table and text as 10,000 gp, unlike the Dungeon Master's Guide (2003), wherein the druid's vestment is listed in the table as having a market price of 3,750 gp but in the text as having a market price of 10,000 ...

A set of errata for D&D 5e was published in June 2015, directly to a news article from which it can be downloaded: D&D Errata for the Player's Handbook. The direct link to the PDF is here. Along with this, the Basic 5e D&D pdfs have been updated which can be found at the D&D Basic Rules web site.

It all started with Player's Handbook 3, which offered alternative, non-fixed ability score bonuses for its new races. This new design was then adopted as the default and included in subsequent books. Some of the "core" races of Player's Handbook and Player's Handbook 2 have then been updated in the Essentials line books (Heroes of the Fallen Lands + Heroes ...

All errata for 3.5 can be found here. However, the errata for the Dungeon Master’s Guide does not mention the druid’s vestment specifically. What it does mention is that, if a table does not match the text of an item’s specific entry, you should favor the text (known as “text-trumps-table” in 3.5 circles). Thus, the druid’s vestment officially costs 10,000 ...

The answer is quite simple, both versions of the cleric are valid and errata'd separately. If you have an interest in the errata for the PHB1 cleric, check the errata for the PHB1. If you have a DDI subscription, the characterbuilder allows you two build them as two sperate versions.

It now does a lot less damage, From the compendium: Hit: Dexterity modifier damage, and the target is blinded until the end of your next turn. Miss: Dexterity modifier damage.

The class compendium is an update to the PHB1 version of the Cleric. The Cleric in Essentials (Warpriest), is a different build of the cleric. The Class Compendium was a book that was scheduled to be released this year by Wizards. They cancelled the book and now the content is being released through Dragon magazine, one class at a time. They have now done ...

Does this mean the players spend all intended hit dice for healing and then benefit from song of rest? [...] I believe you are looking at this the wrong way and, thereby, make the feature more unwieldy then it is. At the end of a short rest you can recover hit points by spending Hit Dice. I quote from Short Rest on page 186 of the PHB: [...] A ...

During a short rest, hit dice are only ever spent at the end. The Song is first, then the healing from rest and hit dice, then the Song applies to those who healed with hit dice. The point of the errata is that the hitpoints gained at the end of the rest must have (at least in part) come from resting (and hence a hit die), as opposed to healing via spell or ...

In, I believe, one of the WotC podcasts, they stated that they wanted to produce less errata than they had been creating, and that the huge errata list that came out around the time of the 1st essentials books was intended to be a major reset to that end. [edit] According to this WotC will release typographical and other errors errata monthly, and reserve ...

Updates for online articles will only involve changing the online article itself. As Wizards will no longer provide complete magazine downloads, I'm not sure how you are supposed to know something has changed.

Ah, twigblights. And the baby white dragon, I had him as a pet for a long time. The only errata published for Sunless Citadel was notes directly from author Bruce Cordell, and they're located here. Reflex Save DC for pit trap on p. 20: "this old pit trap should be DC 16." Missing word: "...the last word in the boxed description of encounter 42 is ...

Impossible to prove a negative, but... No At the very least, the official 3.5 errata archive does not list any, nor have I heard of any. From various discussions I have been a part of, it does not seem that Wizards of the Coast had very high priority for most of the translations, and most of them appear to have been sourced out, rather than done in house. ...

Although I don't have a direct quote or link, WOTC has stated that this is to be a living rules set with changes as needed. They do intend to have errata, but they are not trying to rush an answer and the intent they provided about the issue of errata was that they want to go to the community itself to find appropriate answers (much the same way as they did ...

The best place to start looking for errata is the archived errata page on Wizards.com. They're sorted by version (3.5/3.0), then by book. I don't know of any case where there's an official errata that isn't listed there. The Complete Champion errata is listed there, for example. In addition, some 3.0 books have a conversion guide to update them to 3.5. ...

This page is where all of the 3.0/3.5 errata and faqs were moved. All you have to do is navigate to the main DnD archive page and search for "3.5 errata" in the upper-right hand search bar. To clarify: If the book is listed, then it has errata. Most of the file names also include dates.

Another recommendation picking up the Rules Compendium, as most of the skills were rewritten. The errata is broken down by book. It's pretty easy to skim through and look for sections that are relevant to your game. At a minimum, I would review the PH sections for the classes your players are using, as class features and first level powers may have ...
