comment Does Clone spell makes someone effectively immortal?
@Lexible I'm saying we don't have a generalized idea of what level should have what amount of wealth yet. That's going to be a table in the DMG. Obviously that's not mandatory but it gives you some milestones to understand the context.

comment Can I use Fabricate to make a Keen weapon?
@OpaCitiZen but those don't yet include crafting magical items which they've said will be an optional rule in the DMG

If you're aiming for efficiency, you could always wish that all goblins were adamantine.

And really, why adamantine at all when most creatures' resistance is removed with a magic weapon which boosts to-hit and damage. Sure it's possible, but by the time it is, it's basically completely pointless

@Lexible but what level adventurer should be able to afford 50 heavy crossbows?

comment Does Clone spell makes someone effectively immortal?
@DMNailz I remember where I read this now. In the DMG when it's talking about a Dracolich reforming from it's phylactery, there is an issue if the dracolich dies in separate plane from its phylactery and the soul simply passes on. This wouldn't necessarily be the case here, but is a possible ruling.

Perfectly reasonable

comment Drawing and sheathing a weapon in 5e, and the actions required
it's probably worth noting that a lot of DMs (including Mearls), allow this.

comment Are there limits or costs to Wishing forever for ability score increases?
it refers to "the stress of casting" in the first sentence, and then "this stress" in the last. Your quote here is incorrect (I've corrected it). I think the mirror of stress there indicates that it applies to any non spell casting of wish

comment Can a multiclass Wizard use any Wizard spell?
Worth noting that there are now rules for copying spells from scrolls in the DM basic book (As of v.2 and they are also in v.3). Looks like they are subject to normal copying rules which means they are limited to your wizard level slots, but it's also worth noting that there is a DC attached.

comment Does a Dracolich possessing a new corpse reform as its original type or as the corpse's type?
@Cobalt That definitely isn't in play here by RAW

@OleksandrGalichenko depending on your browser, you can get a bare link to an article with either a right click "open in new tab" or by middle clicking the article

It's worth noting that the recommended DC table was updated in the RC and now is quite different

@OleksandrGalichenko It's a way to gain combat advantage with a bluff check. But now that I read that, I think you may be quoting something else. Could you include the source of the quote in your question?

comment Is the value of currency significantly different between 4e and 5e?
That said, since treasure overall has less impact on the game, I wouldn't be worried about using the treasure values straight from an old adventure. It will certainly be enough, it might be too much, but that's really no big deal.

comment Is the value of currency significantly different between 4e and 5e?
@Jason_c_o Unfortunately those guidelines don't exist yet. The answer to that question is almost certainly going to be no, since they don't need gold equivalents of magic items. We'll have to see what they do about it. 4e was tightly bound with a treasure parcel system, I don't think 5e is going to look anything like that.

comment Which skills can be used passively?
@JoshClark it's a bit of a choice of which meta element do you want to use. Passives or the DM rolling hidden rolls and everyone knowing something is up.
