PHB 173 Your proficiency bonus can’t be added to a single die roll or other number more than once. For example, if two different rules say you can add your proficiency bonus to a Wisdom saving throw, you nevertheless add the bonus only once when you make the save. So your proficiency bonus replaces the creature's.

The answer to your first question is that you're...kinda overthinking it. Every animal the Ranger can have as an animal companion has a statblock with numbers calculated for you. The proficiency bonus is added to those numbers. You don't actually need to know or care about the proficiency bonus of the animal, because it's not something players are assumed to ...

A dual wielding melee ranger may take up to 4 attacks, a ranged ranger or a ranger who is single wielding may take up to 3 attacks. Horde breaker allows you to make an extra free attack when there is an enemy within 5' of an enemy you attack weather you are making a melee or ranged attack. Extra attack allows you to take an extra attack as part of your ...

The ranger would get four weapon attacks if and only if there is another target within 5 feet of the original target. Two would come about from his Extra-attack, the third from a bonus action attack from his second weapon, and the four if there is another target within 5 feet from his Horde breaker. This applies to melee weapons only. Ranged weapons may ...

You can say you're a duelist without being a duelist It's entirely possible that it's the idea of a duelist that's appealing not the what the prestige class duelist actually does. You might be imagining Captain Blood, Robin Hood, or the Dread Pirate Roberts (or Prince Humperdinck who's probably actually a ranger).1 Maybe the character you're imagining when ...

I feel this guide to making rangers is appropriate for the topic in general, and that you may find it useful to just give it a look-over, even if it doesn't answer your question perfectly. As a general tip, multiclassing and animal companions don't mix. Assuming you take Duelist levels starting at 7th, which would be the earliest you could due to the 6+ BaB ...

Your statistics and backstory make your choice of ranger kind of ... grim. On the other hand, Two levels of a full BAB class and some focus on two-weapon fighting will allow you to make the best of a bad lot. The duelist is not a good class for you. It requires intelligent characters. Don't bother. At the end of the day, with those stats, you should be ...

You'll find on the Weapons Table that both Simple Weapons and Martial Weapons contain both melee and ranged categories. Thus, as long as a proficiency does not specify one or the other (for example, "simple melee weapons"), then you would gain proficiency in both melee and ranged weapons of that type. Both the Fighter and the Ranger class descriptions list ...

Firstly, the Ranger proficiencies say "Simple weapons, martial weapons". If you look at the Weapons table, you can see that each category has both melee and ranged weapons in it. The Ranger has every weapon in both categories, regardless of whether it is melee or ranged. Secondly, the Fighter proficiencies use exactly the same wording as the Ranger ...

From Weapon Proficiency on p.146 The two categories are simple and martial. All weapons are one or the other. While there may well be "exotic" weapons (e.g. three-handed throwing petrol bombs) - this is not something that has a game effect. All weapons can also be used in melee (even bows). See the 1st paragraph at the top of p.147. If you use a ...
