No. Under the rules for the spellcasting class feature of multiclass characters, this is explicitly covered (PHB, p. 164; emphases mine): Each spell you know and prepare is associated with one of your classes, and you use the spellcasting ability of that class when you cast the spell. Similarly, a spellcasting focus, such as a holy symbol, can be used ...

No, you cannot. The Bard's spellcasting focus feature says you can use a musical instrument as a spellcasting focus for your Bard spells. This does not extend to spells that you may cast that are granted to you by other classes. This means that you could only use the instrument for spells that are on your spells known list from your bard levels. ...

The Ranger class has the best addition to damage with Colossus Slayer, Dueling, and Hunter's Mark added to your attacks: Monk weapon/Unarmed Strike (1d10) 5.5 damage Hunter's Mark (1d6) 3.5 Dexterity 5 Colossus Slayer (1d8) 4.5 Dueling 2 On your first Monk Weapon attack (it should be a monk weapon or else it won't proc Dueling) you get 20.5 damage (Sum ...

The Monster Manual specifically states (p. 9 I think) that the Actions in a stat block are additional OPTIONS to all the actions in the PHB. Therefore, a creature can always take the Attack action and use any of its attacks. If it has class features that grant extra attacks (e.g. A transformed PC) in an Attack action then it gets those.

Dire Wolf, MM pg 321, lists Bite as an Action. I also see no other attacks listed for the creature, so in my game, this would be the melee attack it would make for an opportunity attack. According to the "Extra Attack" section of the PHB (pg 79): you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn so I say that ...

The second interpretation is correct. For the wolf, Bite is listed under Actions, as it is a type of Action. The next keywords are the important part: Melee Weapon Attack. For a Player Character using Extra Attack, it states that you can make multiple attacks whenever you take the Attack action. For the wolf, Bite is a type of attack. Thus, in the case of ...

The Monster Manual (p. 9) says: ACTIONS When a monster takes its action, it can choose from the options in the Actions section of its stat block or use one of the actions available to all creatures, such as the Dash or Hide action, as described in the Player's Handbook. If Multiattack is one of those options; then the druid is choosing the ...

No. Extra Attack doesn't give you two Attack actions, it gives you two attacks per Attack action. A 5th-level monk still only has one Attack action. That means that not only do you not get two Multiattacks, but if you take the Multiattack action you don't get a second attack from Extra Attack either, because only the Attack action triggers Extra Attack's ...

Monk 5 has extra attack feature so it can attack twice without spending Ki

I have few ideas based on your criteria but the best option really boils down to the situations the party finds themselves in and how the party functions in combat. Because of that, I'll list some options and give the pros and cons of each. Idea 1: Monk 17/Ranger 3 (Take Hunter's Mark, Dueling, and either Colossus Slayer or Horde Breaker) Possible ...
