comment Can a character grab a potion from a pack and drink it without using their action?
@Hassassin point being that the specific rules for spells override the fact that it's a 'Use an object' action.

@DevSolar doesn't matter. If it helps your verisimilitude, you can assume that adventurers have potions in a bandoleer strung over their chest for easy access.

@Strill I see how that connection can be made. However, I'd still be hesitant to allow Cunning Action to be allowed to drink/administer a potion as a bonus action. Think about it this way, would you allow a rogue to cast a spell from a scroll that takes 1 action to cast using cunning action? It's an object that takes an action to use.

comment Confused about fighter's Two Weapon Fighting Style
@SevenSidedDie no. However the reference to penalties for TWF is reminiscent of prior editions (4e notwithstanding)

comment Does drinking a potion permit an opportunity attack?
@NateKerkhofs mechanics aren't intended to model realism, and in this case it's one of numerous abstractions that are made. 5e is designed to not worry too much about position or penalize you for taking most combat actions. The only thing that merits an OA is moving out of reach without disengaging. That's it. You could of course choose to have more things trigger one, but that would be the answer For your game not in general or as written
