I'm new(ish) to D&D and have just gotten what I consider a firm grasp on the 5e rules. I've been gifted with several 4e books (notably, Heroes of the Feywild). I plan on starting my own campaign here in a few weeks and was wondering if anybody had any tips on how to translate the info into 5e mechanics. I realize combat is very different so I figured I'd just use the 5e MM and use those stats.
Looking through Heroes of the Feywild, there are things like "At Will", "Utility", and "Encounter" powers in the classes; Paragon Paths; and Epic Destinies.
At its simplest, my questions is this: How do I update all this into 5e mechanics? I don't mean combat, but character creation and leveling up. For the things that aren't there anymore, is there a replacement or modification?
I know I could get the 4e PHB/DMG, but I'm on a budget and I really really want to use this book.
