comment Dislike how players accurately place fireball spell aoe. Is there an alternative?
Also do try to answer using Good Subjective, Bad Subjective, and not random opinions. While some opinions may be popular, in the end they're not helpful. I had to decide whether to participate in this question as an answerer or a mod; many of you are lucky I decided to answer because if I had chosen mod I'd delete about half these answers out of hand as being "frame challenges" that are 100% opinion with no backup.

comment Need help on building a blade mage
Answer in answers please. Not in comments. If the OP can clarify his needs as opposed to telling him to go find his answer, let him know so he can clarify.

comment Is Curse of Strahd really hard, or am I DMing it wrong?
+1 for that's how sandbox works - this is teaching a whole new generation of gamers they gotta play smart and recon and not bite off more than they can chew.

comment What magic items are good to add non-combat versatility at high levels for a fighter?
OK, I removed the AC/defenses part of this (feel free and ask a second question focusing on that) to get this narrow enough to really be answerable and edited your comment responses into the question. It's still a bit broad, but ideally people's experience with what things really contribute to high-level survivability other than combat stats will help focus it in the answers.

comment How do you determine when an animal is Hostile to the PCs?
Is this answer pure opinion or does it have anything in the actual game to sustain it?

@Ladifas that's a great foundation for an answer, but please don't put answers in comments.

comment How does undead anatomy work?
Because then a level 3 spell does more than the reference level 4 spell polymorph, which seems to be a hint it's not intended.

comment How does undead anatomy work?
RAW maybe, for a sane DM no. And it doesn't really matter much anyway because you don't get any abilities other than those the Undead Anatomy spell says you get, so no regeneration, for example.

comment How does undead anatomy work?
No, just one. Just like normal polymorph doesn't let you become a gorilla-troll-dragon.

comment Is the Alert Feat always better than an Ability Score Improvement?
Hello and welcome to RPG.SE. We are not a usual discussion forum; we require that answers to questions be actual full answers to the question posed. You're doing what we call a "frame challenge," which is to not really answer the question but say something different (in this case "choose for flavor, not power"), and sometimes that can draw downvotes if people don't think it's relevant.
