Talk:Boon of the Oozeborn (5e Epic Boon)

The way this looks now I don't see an issue really:

  • acid and disease immunity
  • advantage to climb
  • unarmed attacks deal acid damage

and not really a benefit but destroying worn non-magical equipment. Others' thoughts? ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 06:42, 19 February 2019 (MST)

even though i am the one who made the edits, i am not compeletly convinced myself of my work here, since boons are given from the DM, not chosen by the player. Could wreck a fighter without access to magic items or the money to treat his gear against their acid, who gets stuck with this. And not everyone wants to be an ooze. If the DM makes it part of a list to choose from or you quest for it, sure. Maybe i'll add that you have to make a 20th level quest to get this boon and you don't get it another way?
From a balance side, this boon rivals the one with fire immunity and at will burning hands. I thought it good, since the other advantages are minor. (diseases can be healed by lesser restoration, unarmed acid damage is not necessarily an advantage, considering how many creatures are resistant and climb can be replaced by flight at this level.)--Doctor Dee (talk) 06:57, 19 February 2019 (MST)
gone through the conditions of epic boons and i realised my complaint wasn't thought out. From my point of view, the boon is good.--Doctor Dee (talk) 10:35, 19 February 2019 (MST)
Yeah so my thoughts were why wouldn't a level 20 character have magical armor and if the DM did that scenario, its excessive for someone that can screw players over in easier ways, if that is how they play. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 12:40, 19 February 2019 (MST)
Agreed. Shall i remove the template?--Doctor Dee (talk) 12:51, 19 February 2019 (MST)
