You get 12. You take the 8 minimum from the roll, and add your Con bonus to get the total. This distinction is maintained at key points of the PHB with regard to Hit Dice. My reasoning: 'the roll' is pretty clear. They could have said 'the total', but didn't. You would get a minimum of 2 without this feat from a Hit Die roll, provided your Con bonus was ...

Usually, a "roll" consists of the actual dice roll plus any modifiers. So in this case, the minimum would be 8. Or, to look at it another way, When you roll a Hit Die to regain hit points, the minimum number of hit points you regain from the roll equals twice your Constitution modifier (minimum of 2).

Level 6 is the earliest with one Level 4 Cohort. Cohort Level The character can attract a cohort of up to this level. Regardless of a character’s Leadership score, he can only recruit a cohort who is two or more levels lower than himself. The cohort should be equipped with gear appropriate for its level. A character can try to attract a cohort of a ...

While actually wielding a two-handed weapon, or a weapon and a shield, you normally won't be able to cast spells with somatic components. However, in the two-handed case, you can release the grip on the weapon with one hand in order to cast. After all, unless you're super-weak, you'll be able to hold the thing with one hand - just not attack with it like ...

You can't cast spells while holding your two-handed sword or your sword and shield without the War Caster feat. This is spelled out on page 203 of the PHB: If a spell requires a somatic component, the caster must have free use of at least one hand to perform these gestures. However, you don't necessarily need to take the feat in order to use a ...

You need to have both the regular metamagic feat and Divine Metamagic When you take this feat, choose a metamagic feat that you have. This feat applies only to that metamagic feat.

Yes, Psionic Body is underpowered – and so is Toughness Both Toughness and Psionic Body are absolutely awful feats that should just about never be taken for their own sake. They do get a kinda-sorta exception though: The game will never get past level 1, maybe 2 You’re playing a low-HD class You have really bad ability scores so your Constitution is low ...

Psionic Body is definitely balanced with Toughness. Since you get a feat every other level, a character that takes only psionic feats gets the same number of hit points from either feat. However, a character that gets bonus psionic feats is able to eke out a few extra hit points that way. Basically, you lose the ability to take non-psionic feats and gain ...

At level 6, you seem to be playing to warlock strongly, especially as you don't light the ur-priest rocket until level 10. Looking closely at the literature, your character, as proposed, is trying to do too many things poorly. Focus either on dragon-fire adept/ur, binder/ur or warlock/binder/hellfire and the feat requirements should flow naturally from your ...

By first party (made by Paizo) RAW, no there isn't. Extra Revelation requires that you have the prerequisites for the extra revelation you're getting (which means you have to have the appropriate mystery). Ring of Revelation also explicitly states that you must have the appropriate mystery to use the revelation contained in the ring. (And the commentary ...

General Answer World Serpent's Grasp is defined in Heroes of the Forgotten Kingdoms on page 321. It says: Whenever you hit a slowed or immobilized target with an attack, you can knock it prone. This has three conditions: You make an attack You hit with the attack The creature you hit was slowed or immobilized Condition one is not as trivial as it ...

Yes to all. If you make an attack roll, and you hit, you have "Hit with an attack." It doesn't matter what it was.

While it's not entirely clear, I would assume that the 10 feet is added to her speed, then her speed is halved. Points to consider: Both the Monk bonus and the bonus from Mobility are permanent bonuses, whereas the Lingering Injury is meant to be a temporary penalty (lasts until you get a regenerate spell cast on you). If she already had the bonus to her ...

An unbalanced weapon (like a mace, top-heavy) with enough blade to do slashing damage is basically an axe or a splitting maul. "How do I make a slashing mace?" begs the question of what weapon with mace-like qualities would do slashing damage - and the answer to that is an axe, a top-heavy weapon that actually does slashing damage. By recasting what such a ...

This is one of those ways in which the SRD material is not a replacement for the original books, because the Product Identity material is vital to its function. The full feat text (Osirion: Land of Pharoahs, p. 28) includes a sentence saying it functions the same as, and refers you to, the Profits of Kalistrade feat (which is completely PI) on page 73 of ...

there is a rule in the Player's Handbook stating that if you have an ability that imitates a prerequisite for a feat or prestige class, then you count as having the requirement for that feat or prestige class. since the Wild Cohort feat specifically says that the animal cohort functions like a Druid's animal companion, then for purposes of prerequisites you ...


3

Not by RAW Simply because the rules written, which you have quoted, say nothing about it being such. It doesn’t mention Leadership or Leadership’s cohort at all, and while it mentions similarities between Wild Cohort and Animal Companion, it does not actually state that Wild Cohort is or counts as Animal Companion. It’s more than reasonable to houserule ...

Your DM is wrong SRD > Magic Overview > Spell Descriptions > School: Beneath the spell name is a line giving the school of magic (and the subschool, if appropriate) that the spell belongs to. Almost every spell belongs to one of eight schools of magic. A school of magic is a group of related spells that work in similar ways. A small number of ...

Your DM is confusing specialist wizards variants with the basic concept of spell schools. Spells would have schools even if wizards variants didn't exist. Almost all spells have a school, including spells that happen to be exclusively divine. Yes, a cleric can take Spell Focus.


12

Yes, a cleric can take the feat Spell Focus As a feat wholly lacking in prerequisites, nearly any creature can take the feat Spell Focus, even those that can't cast spells at all. (Maybe such a creature needs the feat to qualify for a prestige class or another feat--like the feat Augment Summoning--or is planning to take levels in a class that casts spells ...

No, you can't provoke opportunity attacks this way. From the Player's Basic Rules, page 74: You also don’t provoke an opportunity attack when you teleport or when someone or something moves you without using your movement, action, or reaction. For example, you don’t provoke an opportunity attack if an explosion hurls you out of a foe’s reach or ...

Yes, the push can be before the attack. The first bullet of the Shield Master feat is: • If you take the Attack action on your turn, you can use a bonus action to try to shove a creature within 5 feet of you with your shield. Jeremy Crawford (the rules expert for D&D 5E) was asked about this on twitter. He responded with the following. As with ...
