I am currently putting together a dhampir blood hunter character and I noticed something interesting, which I would like to verify the RAW about:
The Order of the Lycan, Heightened Senses is described as:
When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you gain the improved senses of a natural predator. You have advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.
The Passive Checks section in the basic rules states:
Here's how to determine a character's total for a passive check:
10 + all modifiers that normally apply to the check
If the character has advantage on the check, add 5. For disadvantage, subtract 5. The game refers to a passive check total as a score.
And finally, the Observant feat states (third point, emphasis my own):
You have a +5 bonus to your passive Wisdom (Perception) and passive Intelligence (Investigation) scores.
So, that would leave a Lvl 4 Dhampir Order of the Lycan Blood Hunter, proficient in Perception, 16 Wisdom, and who just took the Observant feat rocking a passive perception of:
10 + 2 (Proficiency) + 5 (Heightened Senses) + 5 (Observant) + 3 (Wisdom) for a total passive perception of 25
I know that resistances and weaknesses do double, but I am wondering if I am correct in stacking the advantages of a passive check. Do they stack, or does this break the game?
