comment How does an Fighter (Eldritch Knight) 20 compare to a Fighter 10/Wizard 10 for both damage dealt and durability?
just one thought quickly, a dex penalty doesn't do anything to you if you're wearing heavy armor. I'll read the rest tomorrow

comment How to expand a primal burst at paragon level?
@Admiralshlork you can use a staff enchanted as a weapon, but again, thunder is a tough damage type :(.

comment Know any Fun or Unique Classes or Races?
Hi and welcome to RPG.SE, in order for this question to be answerable, you will need substantially more criteria than simply "fun". We don't generally do poll type questions here. See on-topic. Also the tour

@Admiralshlork made a hefty update

Gotcha, much more difficult to add thunder to an implement power...Yeah I deleted my comment because I re-read the question. Just a heads up, some paragraph breaks would make this way more readable

comment How to protect a Cha-based caster against Feeblemind?
@Lohoris it's not, it's just to a deleted post so it doesn't show. It's a 10k only link now, but it's still required as to credit the source properly.

comment How to protect a Cha-based caster against Feeblemind?
@Miniman I'm not sure either is on the Sorcy list though. Also Feeblemind prevents casting, so it'd need to be a reaction or an always on or something

comment Nimble Melee Sorcerer Help
Are you married to Rogue 1? Ranger 1 gets your AC quite a bit higher (or at least the same) without requiring a huge dex investment that will rob you of feats. (Fighter 1 gives you a huge boost with also getting a fighting style, but may not have other things you want)

comment Nimble Melee Sorcerer Help
@JoshuaAslanSmith the previous question indicated Drow, but yeah, what you have for a build so far would be really helpful.

comment Is this build a viable melee Sorcerer?
@Khashir at this point all we know is that any armor can be enchanted with at least +1. We'll know more in October when Rise of Tiamat comes out (as it reportedly goes to L17), and even more in November when the DMG drops.

@Toujimon the edit history is accessible, no need to add notes. Thanks!

comment What exactly is “base AC”?
@GMNoob it uses "base number", not "base AC". I'm not inclined to believe that the intent for Mage Armor is to add your Dex twice
2d
comment What exactly is “base AC”?
@GMNoob only by indicating that it's not in consistent use throughout the game. The only place it's used in Basic is in Mage Armor.

It might be helpful to note that you are presenting this as a houserule

comment Does a reach weapon allow you to threaten squares 10 feet away or not?
I was just poking around Jeremy Crawford's twitter feed, and there is a conversation you'd be interested in I think. twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/502917024834539521. Basically Polearm Master is an exception to the OA rule and happens when they enter the 10' square.

comment How does barkskin work in DnD 5e?
You might want to add in that if you are subjected to some effect that reduces your AC that was higher than 16 to less than that, it's still 16

@Khashir shield proficiency gives another +2, plus in armor you have the ability to grab magic armor vs the sorcy's natural armor. 22 would be enough to get down into the 85% range for the toughest monster we've seen (tarrasque's to-hit is 19). If you have warcaster you can go shield and cast no problem (and functionally, casting is really not a problem with a weapon and shield, you're just juggling a bit and have to watch your action order, it's a bit tougher if you're planning on reaction casting though).

any reason not to start fighter instead? better weapon proficiencies, you can get a +1 to your AC and start in heavy armor and get a shield. Also, if you're taking 2 levels of a class, you're only going to get 4 abil ups rather than 5 since the last one comes at 19.
