I'm trying to use the Basic Rules for 5th edition to create a level 3 character (we're trying out 5e today). I don't have a PHB (yet). Chapter 6 from the basic rules (which is one page) seems to have about the only info on multiclassing (which I wanted to try) and more importantly feats (which every character would need, right?). About the latter it just says:
See chapter 6 of the Player’s Handbook for more information.
Does this mean the PHB is effectively required to choose feats and find out about their effects?
I've tried to answer my own question. I've searched the basic rules for "feat" (way too many results to be useful) and "feats" (the only helpful info is quoted above). I've also searched with Google (e.g. this query), which mostly leads to reviews and forum posts.
