Indeed. I was not aware of that, thanks.

Bards in 5e are full casters, as are warlocks, even if they have a custom spell mechanic. It's not a single caster, it's two casters. But anyway, as your answer is not really related to the question, I don't think we will get anywhere discussing in comments. Thanks for trying to help.

I am not sure why you want me to defend their choices. Only valour bards get medium armour from the class. But anyway, now they are about 25% of the RNG above what I assume the designers of the campaign anticipated. And it showed. So yes, it is a problem for us, because we like tough, fast fights, not padded sumo 4e-style.

I generally don't accept answers within a too short time frame because there might be better answers coming. This is a good answer, no doubt, but only the mechanical stuff to use is really helpful, despite the fact that it mentions flanking which does not exist in 5e.

Mage armour is 13+dex = 15 here, while medium armor + shield is AC 15+2+dex = 19. Not really comparable.

Yeah they just walk around with a shield and an empty hand.

Describe describe describe - that's not the issue here, we play for many years and the narrative stuff works well. I think it's really a mechanical problem here.

This does not answer the question at all. The casters are a warlock and a bard, both of which get light armour from the class.
