I'm just starting out, and want to play a Drow Bard in D&D 5e.
Basically, the wording of the PHB is a bit confusing:
- Does 'knowing' a cantrip mean you can 'cast' a cantrip for free without a slot (like it states later for Faerie Fire and Darkness) an unlimited number of times?
- Or does it have to use one of your existing cantrip slots? Bards have access to 2 from the Bard list at level 1. If so, would this mean it's a waste to play a Drow Bard, since the free cantrip is part of the Bard's cantrip list?
It looks like this question was asked before, but no answer was given, hence I'm providing more info than the previous user.
