In our DnD 5e game, my character is (currently) a level 3 Dragonborn Fighter. Currently, his stats are not something to shake your head at (for his level).
- 30+ health
- 17 STR
- Greatsword (2D6 damage +3 STR mod and +2 proficiency bonus)
- Second Wind (spend a bonus action to recover 1D10+Fighter Level HP)
- Action Surge (Gain another action as your bonus action)
Downsides: I traded in some decent defense for my Greatsword as a starter weapon (goes with my backstory). So I'm sitting pretty on an abysmal 12 total armor class. Most of that comes with my Racial attributes.
Normally, this wouldn't be something that anyone would really see as anything to "fix", however, we also have two, very capable Barbarians in the squad as well. So as far as DPS goes, they have it covered.
Also in the team we have a Rogue, a Warlock, and an (NPC) Druid. These 3 are considered the squishier ones, and my character is a bit more of a "Team Player" type guy, so I was wondering which options I should take to embrace that a bit?
For example, at level 3, I have access to Martial Archetypes. Several of the options that Battle Master provides sound "Team Player"-ish. The other option I was thinking was multi-classing, and taking on possibly a Healer-Druid type subclass as well/instead.
What do you suggest? (Keep it mainly to the Fighter or Druid class to answer please.)
