comment Attacks of Opportunity while holding a reach and a non-reach weapon
According to feat text the only thing that matters is the movement that provokes. I don't see how war caster interaction would be different...

I have a caster with War Caster and I am more interested in maximizing the chance for OAs.

@sadaqah Make that an answer.

comment How does Armor of Agathys interact with getting temporary hit points?
Yes but does the armor effect (retaliation 5 cold) end if I take the hitpoints from my buddy?

comment How to make a great villain who your players hate more than anything else?
One important part you mentioned but did not expand on was that the villain should take something the party thinks is theirs. There aren't many ways parties will hate some npcs more than if he takes 'their stuff'...

comment How can I get around the drow's light sensitivity?
Not necessarily. Blade pact warlocks can be great melee attackers from L1...

comment Help me optimize a controller-warlock that doesn't just spam Eldritch Blast
Sure, no doubt both are great options...

Dissonant whispers uses the reaction of the target and therefore provokes OA - and that can be insanely powerful...much better than the alternatives in my opinion. And it scales with the OA of the party ;)

comment Is a Staff with Finesse balanced?
There's also shillelagh, so some casters already have a melee weapon that is even more powerful, because it's powered by their main ability and costs only a cantrip + bonus action to activate.

comment Should I choose targets before or after I roll for the Beholder's rays?
You might want to add a bolded sentence "Choose the target or targets, then roll" to make your answer clearer...it is in there, but not as clear as it could be.

comment Overall mechanical effects of 16 point buy in 5e
That was the goal, to present my subjective interpretation and asked for a mechanical breakdown to see if it would support my hypothesis or not. I rephrased it again to make this more clear.

D'oh. I was not aware of this.

comment How to make someone prone without a shove / strength check?
Our DM has a house rule for prone that makes it stronger. I want to find out the ways to make prone, and then build a character to take advantage of the one I like best. So anything that a player can control goes (no magic items, since they are handed out by the DM).

Because magic. If there is no way, write an answer explaining that; then if no one contradicts you, you get the points...

Thanks, I did not know that about reach. I updated the question.

comment The half-elf: is it balanced?
-1 for needlessly inflammatory language comparing D&D 3.5 and pathfinder.

comment A fast rule to replace iterative attacks
It doesn't really matter, both things can slow down the game. Some people are fast with their game math and others take a long time with their dice. Any improvement helps.

What about the points in KRyan's answer with respect to high- and low-AC targets?

comment D&D high-difficulty / technical character build suggestions
Maybe missing a mention of how stealth, illusions and to a lesser part enchantments can be strongly dm dependent...
