comment Does Repulsion Armor Stop Movement?
Would be helpful to quote the relevant section of Immediate Reaction that indicates it happens when the trigger is complete, not necessarily the action

comment Does Repulsion Armor Stop Movement?
@András incorrect, opportunity attacks interrupt. There may be a logic flaw here, but that's not a good comp.

comment Pros & Cons: Sorcerer & Cleric cross-class
@Xerosigma yeah, MCing is intentionally costly for most classes, they really want you to think, and it seems the really want you to take at least 4 levels (the second level dip costs you an ability score increase, which you can't recover until L4).

comment Pros & Cons: Sorcerer & Cleric cross-class
Just a heads up, generally with optimization questions, we're usually looking for some kind of criteria by which to judge a question (what are you trying to do with this character). In this case I think it's fairly easy to define pros and cons for the scenarios you set up. But keep that in mind if you want to ask further char-op style quesitons

comment Does the DM have to give me magical weapons?
The concern (at least in my view) isn't so much the accuracy or damage, but the fact that numerous high level creatures resist or are immune to non-magic'd weapon damage. The idea that you simply "wouldn't use" the bulk of high level monsters seems...strange

comment Can you Wield an Off-Hand Weapon with a Spiked Guantlet
note that the even the hand crossbow does require 2 hands to load, so that can be an issue (though it can be removed with a feat)

comment Can you Wield an Off-Hand Weapon with a Spiked Guantlet
I'm not finding a rules cite for the hand having to be free to attack with the spiked gauntlet, could you point to where you're getting that? Thanks!

comment How many Ability Dependencies is too many? (What is MAD?)
@MatthieuM. Generally prof is only added to skills, but there are other cases where it can be applied (str check with a tool for instance), and some sub classes get things like half their prof bonus to all str/dex checks as a feature.

comment What rules in the Player's Handbook are new/different from the Basic Rules?
@MagRoader in this case the reverse is probably a better question. The PHB went to the printer before Basic was released.

comment Lore about Gibbeth
@bolgfred yeah, the bulk of the Gibbeth info so far is in that adventure from Dragon 207 if you can get ahold of that. MM2 only has a paragraph or two that won't tell you more than the dragon adventure I linked. I'll check MotP when I get home but I don't anticipate anything further there.
