comment What is the best way to increase AC as a Monk?
This does not work. Unarmored Defenses do not stack.

comment Earthreaver Stompers (Boots) Daily Power Target Clarification
Yeah, and it seems WOTC took down their per book FAQ (But I don't remember a clarification to this power, and since it wasn't errata'd there probably wasn't one). You've hit on one of the several problems in the power text. There's unfortunately no much clarity to be gained from other sources here :(

comment What advantages does hiding have?
@Miniman you can attack someone you don't have LOS to, you just have to guess where they are. You can't attack someone you don't have LOE to. (and many spells don't work w/o LOS).

comment Modeling gear destruction
@WesleyObenshain I tried to be careful to not say that, because it might, it sort of depends on what you're going for. If that's something the enhances the story for you, great! But then you need to ask if that narrative element is more or less fun if it has mechanical consequence. If doing so enhances your gameplay experience then great, but if it detracts then maybe it's not a good fit. The narrative element can stay without needing a mechanical one.

comment Does Exhaustion Carry Over From A Druid's Wildshaped Form to Their Regular Form?
@LinoFrankCiaralli "drowning" is not a 5e condition. Drowning is a state that inflicts specific conditions (and other effects). If your state changes then conditions that are a result of that state are no longer in effect.

comment Can a Monk use/trigger Defensive Duelist while wielding a monk weapon (or unarmed)?
twitter.com/JeremyECrawford/status/608080238816296960 this tweet is about natural weapons but makes clear that using dex to attack does not grant finesse.

Is there a reason you're quoting this wiki instead of the source books?

comment How do weapon properties apply to double weapons?
Ah, I'll correct. The compendium definition of the double sword is reflected here I'll see if its errata or a misprint.

comment Does reducing a roll change a critical?
are you familiar with 4e? A roll (Specifically, an attack roll) is defined as the d20+modifiers. A modifier to the roll does not affect what the d20 says.

comment Does reducing a roll change a critical?
your example does in fact lead to a critical in 4e. Crits aren't crits in 4e only if you don't meet the target defense with the roll. There's nothing in the rules that allows for that kind of interpretation. And 4e is a pretty tightly defined combat system. A feather may only do 1 point of damage (or none, as it's not heavy enough to be an improvised weapon), but it'd still register a crit if it hit on a natural 20. The general rule isn't trumped here as the actual die (which is what triggers the crit) is not modified.

You aren't modifying the die though. Your modifying the roll which is the result of the die and modifiers. Luckbender is basically just another modifier. A crit is still a crit with it.

comment What are techniques for getting a group together?
Hi and welcome to RPG.SE! This question, unfortunately, is too broad for us to answer with the level of detail that would actually be helpful. However, there are a great number of questions on this site already about getting started and getting a group together. Try rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1232/… for starters. When you have a more specific question feel free to ask it! We try to deal with relatively narrow, answerable questions.

comment Half-elf dilettante using implement powers
@WashingtonPearce some implements are class specific for the purposes of feats and some powers (for instance "warlock implements" "sorcerer implements" are used) This means that the source of the implement proficiency must come from that class (or in the case of arcane implements, a class of that power source). However to use an implement with a specific power type, you don't need proficiency from any specific class (unless otherwise specified).

comment Does fear-induced movement count as “moving willingly”?
@DCShannon There are two places where it talks about willing vs unwilling movement, it's in the section I quoted and in the forced movement section (it specifies that forced movement can be either). While it's not explicit, willing movement seems like things that you do to yourself or allies, whereas unwilling movement is things you're forced to do (Deadly Lure would be a good example of unwilling unforced movement)

comment What are the different ways you can counter shifty enemies?
The second of your first bullets is likely untrue. It's described as a reaction which would be immediate and not accessible multiple times per round. Otherwise, solid strategy for MBA focused characters

comment What are the different ways you can counter shifty enemies?
@convoke were your enemies hobgoblins by any chance? Hobgoblin Spear Soldiers seem to have a power that matches your description (shift 3 as immediate when an enemy moves adjacent)

comment What are the different ways you can counter shifty enemies?
@WashingtonPearce see above, it's not that you can't shift in difficult terrain, it's just that typically you can't shift more than 1 square (unless you have a power that lets you), so you can't spend the extra movement
