comment Do you HAVE to have Thieves tools in order to pick a lock?
@Tommy it's possible, or it could be Mearls giving an off the cuff explanation that isn't consistent with the rules (it's hard to tell with him)

comment Do you know the value of an attack or damage roll on you before the hit is resolved?
@Besty It sort of depends on your style of play. A L1 spell is a pretty big resource at low levels, so you might want to let them know, but at higher levels not so much, so you might not. But more than that, judge the tone of your game, and even talk to your players "do you want to know, or would you rather there be more risk" you'd be surprised at how much risk players are often interested in taking on to boost tension

@Tommy yeah, we may have to get ahold of Mearls/Crawford and tease out intent here

@Tommy sure, but it specifically says under both "locks" and "manacles" that proficiency is required. Disarming traps perhaps now (Would depend on trap). Just because it tells you to add your proficiency bonus, doesn't necessarily mean you can do it while not being proficient.

@ProfessorZ meh, skills/proficiencies are fluid and can have overlap.
