I'm building a character in the 5th edition and my background and class both mention survival proficiency, do i add the proficiency bonus twice or only once?

    \$\begingroup\$ This sounds like it's probably 5th edition D&D. Is that the case? (If so, I believe we already have the answer to this question on the site, and we can provide a link to it.) You can edit your question to add what game it's about. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Oct 18 '17 at 19:08

  • \$\begingroup\$ No trouble! As I thought, we do conveniently already have an answer for this question. I've made this question into a link to that existing matching question, where you'll find the answer to yours. Thank you for contributing to our “web” of questions that lead to that set of answers. :) \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Oct 19 '17 at 6:24
