First of all. I'm really sorry if the question is so "dumb". There is nobody that can teach me at this point, and I'm really clueless
So I'm playing in this solo D&D And I currently in a room, here's a diagram.
s2 is where I am. a and b are dire rat.
I decided to attack this dire rat using my arrow (shortbow) to be precise (My Class is ranger. I'm a human. Level 1)
But how I resolved this?
And here's 2 points that I'd like to point out.
I'm a ranger. I have this class featured call "Hunter's Quarry"
Once per turn as a minor action, you can designate the enemy nearest to you as your quarry.
Once per round, you deal extra damage to your quarry.
The extra damage is based on your level.
If you can make multiple attacks in a round, you decide which attack to apply the extra damage to after all the attacks are rolled.
The hunter’s quarry effect remains active until the end of the encounter, until the quarry is defeated, or until you designate a different target as your quarry.
You can designate one enemy as your quarry at a time.
Do I deal this damage even though I missed?
Then there is a class feature called "Prime Shot"
If none of your allies are nearer to your target than you are, you receive a +1 bonus to ranged attack rolls against that target.
I'm lonely and I'm using arrows, how this affect the combat?
PS: It will be helpful and lovely if you don't just explain this one not just attacking but from deciding surprise round until the combat ends.
