comment What function does the “light” keyword serve on the hand crossbow
Hi and welcome, What do 3.5 feats have to do with a 5e question? Just an FYI it might behoove you to slow down with the answers just a little bit and spend a bit more time on individual answers. A lot of your answers so far cover ground in existing answer without providing much new information.

Are you saying dragon shard bonuses and enhancement bonuses are counted per [W]? Because that would be incorrect

@nvoigt neither restrict action. Yes, obviously conditions like unconscious, petrified and incapacitated prevent you from casting any spells.

comment How can I optimize damage for a ranged ranger from level 1 to 6?
@JLan all builds can be narratively interesting if you put the effort into it. Some classes/builds support this, and some put the entire onus on the player to do so. This would be one where the onus is completely on the player
