comment How does the Ranger Whirlwind Attack feature compare to the Volley feature?
It'd be helpful to future answerers and me crafting my answer if you could clarify what your optimization goal is here. Are you looking for damage, the most use? Are you evaluating this power for a ranged ranger or a melee ranger? What kind of campaign are you playing in? Basically in order for this to be answerable beyond what I've written we need more detail. Also, it would be helpful to future posters and readers if you integrate your "edit" block into the question rather than leaving it as an end tag. if people want to see what you added they can look at the edit history.

How much 5e have you played? I'm not sure surrounded is all that highly situational....

comment Does a Daily gained from a feat count against my current 3/day limit?
@afagedon95 yeah, the only class that has restrictions on how many of it's given dailies it can use is the wizzy. (and that's because they get 2 at each level, total number of powers usable is the same, the wiz is just more flexible).

comment Does a Daily gained from a feat count against my current 3/day limit?
@afagedon95 it's a power that's use is only permitted by the other power and can only be used once while it's active. It has no interaction with any other powers as far as expenditure goes (it gets a bit weird when you interplay recharging in, but usually a power needs a level to be recharged so...)

@KRyan yeah, I think I may need to rewrite this whole thing.

@KRyan Not in general. The wizard works like that...kind of (but not really). But no, usually it's just you use the powers in front of you.

comment Does a Daily gained from a feat count against my current 3/day limit?
@JLan yeah, it's complicated enough that I'm going to leave it as is. The limits are governed by classes and level, at the player's current level, that's the limit.

comment Embedding and attaching double weapons to Warforged, specifically spiked chain
there's a difference (though subtle) between something being a two handed weapon, and a weapon in two hands. You can see this because certain double weapons have an end with the stout property that allows them to be wielded two handed.

comment Looking for the name of a rpg where players take on heroes from actual mythology
It would be helpful if you could elaborate further on what else you remember of the system. Your description could match many other systems and as of right now your question is subject to closure because of insufficient detail.

@Rena are you buying PDFs from D&D classics or buying dead tree books?

@Emrakul I don't. I'm already more active here than I am on the sites I moderate. I don't see much of a change if I'm a moderator here.

comment How much does ongoing damage add to the average damage when creating a monster?
@webbcode ack, I let myself forget that first turn damage is almost always a thing. I've corrected the math errors, it only changes where the series begins and the math means you use double(ish) of the number, not the actual number (which is what I thought it was, so I was surprised by this result...I should have checked my math again).

comment How do zones and line of effect work, and are they adjusted if the zone follows the player (kinda like an aura, but defined as a zone)?
@DCShannon rereading your parsing is more consistent with the range text. I've edited to reflect.

@dcshannon it can actually be parsed both ways. It seems more consistent to parse the way I have.

comment When advantage isn't enough. Other circumstantial bonuses in 5e?
@patrick, the raw is basically circumstantial proficiency, but generally raw only uses adv for this. Point of adv was yo roll up all circ bonuses

comment How many spell slots does a Warlock 19/Wizard 1 have?
Probably worth noting that the Wiz spells cast with pact magic are cast at the level of the pact slots.
