Mighty Psintax Master Jeremy released DMG Errata here: http://media.wizards.com/2016/downloads/DND/DMG-Errata.pdf Combining Game Effects (p. 252). This is a new subsection at the end of the “Combat” section: Different game features can affect a target at the same time. But when two or more game features have the same name, only the effects of one of ...

Yes, the 2 auras will stack. There is a rule to prevent the proficiency bonus from being stacked on a roll, and there is a rule that says you can't benefit from 2 of the same spell simultaneously, but these are the only rules that restrict bonus stacking. Additionally, Jeremy Crawford, lead designer of D&D 5e, has confirmed that you can benefit from ...

"mount" and "steed" aren't interchangeable terms. "your steed serves as a mount" doesn't mean the same thing as "your steed is limited to being used as a mount." The official half-orc paladin pregen (found, with other sheets, here: http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/character_sheets) comes with a brown bear with an Intelligence of 6. The sheet also ...

Well, you're already pretty tanky, but there's always more you can do. Short-term: If your splint armour is not magical you should definitely try to upgrade to plate if you can. It doesn't cost anything but gold, and unless your DM allows you to buy magic items there's just not that much use for gold. You can try to persuade your party members to help you ...

First off, wow, +3AC in magic items? Yeah, your DM is being VERY liberal with the magic items. (also, as an aside, how does Lay on Hands not help in combat? an action to heal up to 35hp in one go? that's amazing! that's like two-thirds of your max health!) Assuming no utility magical items or enchanted weapons (other than the generic +1/+2/+3 or ...

Without throwing too much at you for the myriad multiclass options and builds...I am going to touch on tanking concepts and then how you might achieve them with your current character. 'Tanking' in 5E is a very relative term...and an even harder role to try and apply to tabletop rpg. A 'Tank' by the most widely used definition is a melee combatant that can ...

Your second way. "... by adding together all your levels" would mean that your second example (ranger + paladin)/2 rounded down is how you'd work it. The rule doesn't have you segregate the levels before dividing if they are the same category. The example given in the book is a case of two different categories being combined, otherwise it would not have ...

No You run into several problems trying to cast Warding Bond on yourself and have your steed take the damage. You seem to be able to cast warding bond on yourself (which seems fine, you get +1 AC take half damage but then take the damage twice). The target of the spell is the one who gets the AC and the resistance, the caster of the spell is the one who ...

The best way that I can see you improving your combat effectiveness is through the specific spells you choose. As you had said, money is sort of tight in your campaign, so you need to make due with what you have at your disposal naturally. Luckily, this isn't hard considering that you have a +4 Cha score (Giving you anywhere between 1-4 additional spells ...
