# What is the max HP of a level 5 ranger with a Constitution modifier of +2? [closed]

What’s a level 5 ranger's max hit points with a Constitution modifier of +2?

Is it hit die plus modifier?
So (10+2)*5

Lvl 1 = 12
Lvl 2 = 24
Lvl 3 = 36
Lvl 4 = 48
Lvl 5 = 60

Seems high.

• Are you asking for a literal maximum (including other features), or just the maximum from the rolled dice and Constitution modifier? Feb 13 '19 at 5:12

From the PHB (p. 90):

Hit Points at 1st Level: 10 + your Constitution modifier

Hit Points at Higher Levels: 1d10 (or 6) + your Constitution modifier per ranger level after 1st

So yes, based on just your hitdie rolls, the absolute maximum at level 5 would be 60, as you calculated. However the chance of that happening is pretty astronomical (.01% chance of getting a 10 on 4 consecutive d10 rolls). That's why it would appear to be a "bit high".

That said, there are feats and race/class features that can boost this further, like the Hill Dwarf's Dwarven Toughness feature, or the Tough feat (PHB, p. 170).

• @MikeQ: The total increase per level is between 3 and 12 HP because it's 1d10 plus a Con mod of 2.

• @MikeQ I don't think the question actually wants the literal maximum, but is just asking about the base HP from class levels Feb 13 '19 at 5:12
• @MikeQ: There are also other race/class features that could increase one's max HP (e.g. Dwarven Toughness, Draconic Resilience).

• Clarified the max based on hit die rolls

• You get 10 hp at first level so you only need to roll 4 sequential 10s for a much more reasonable 0.01% chance. Feb 13 '19 at 6:36
