Talk:Perfect Striker (5e Feat)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

You could make a feat that says nothing but, "Screw 5e, my ranged attacks are better now." I don't see much difference.
It's extra broken considering as written this applies to spells.
I don't know why any experienced contributor would believe this is worth keeping. - Guy 13:39, 6 May 2020 (MDT)

It's the same as +2 ASI. Which helps spells, melee, or range depending on the ability score and class. Not broken, just redundant, unoriginal, and boring. I saw GD remove the tag, which was done properly. Ya know, template stating issue, template addressed, remove template. I don't think that stops someone from placing another valid template if they wish? Any inexperienced contributor can that. Red Leg Leo (talk) 09:30, 8 May 2020 (MDT)
It technically wouldn't stop one, sure, but a user putting up a template right after an admin removes one—or vice versa—often does not go over well.
How is this "the same" as an ASI? If one is primarily concerned with spell attacks, +2/+1 is more than twice as good as a +1/+0.
Heck, it technically even gives +1 to "damage rolls," so even magic missile and a dragonborn's breath attack get buffed.
In any case it's a pretty huge increase if the character is already sitting at 20, letting them push bounded accuracy as easily as rare magic items (and stacking with those items, even).
Even if it was perfectly balanced, you're right that it's boring and an incredibly bland feat. I don't see why it was preserved. One of the listed issues was "it's not unique," and that still hasn't been addressed. - Guy 18:57, 8 May 2020 (MDT)

Good work. The feat's about as nice as any "I'm better at attacking now" feat could ever be. - Guy 19:29, 8 May 2020 (MDT)

Yep, I just went with something that has the same feel as "I'm better at attacking now", without breaking bounded accuracy or being bland.--Blobby383b (talk) 19:31, 8 May 2020 (MDT)
Wow nice. I think that definitely makes you consider this vs ASI. Very situational benefit (+10% hit chance) accompanied by CD perk. Obviously a perfect striker would be broken, but this certainly helps encompass that idea, or as Guy says, "I'm better at attacking now". Red Leg Leo (talk) 19:42, 8 May 2020 (MDT)

Qaulity Article Nomination[edit]

Featured article candidate .png This article is a current quality article nominee as of 14:18, 5 November 2021 (MDT). Quality articles exemplify D&D Wiki's very best work, and therefore must meet the quality article criteria. Please discuss the page's merits below.

I believe this feat to be a great additional option for characters who wade into melee combat. It is simple, thematic, but quite effective when used in the right hands. I also believe this feat fills a good niche not covered by existing feats. Because of these reasons, I believe this feat has the potential to become a quality article.--Blobby383b (talk) 14:18, 5 November 2021 (MDT)

  • Support. Very nice bite-sized feat that does exactly what you want it to do without offering too much.--Malachai (talk) 21:48, 13 August 2022 (MDT)
  • Oppose. As it stands, I don't think this feat is useful. The average result of "1d20, reroll 1 or 2 and keep the result" is 11.4, an increase of 0.9, which is worse than just taking the +2 Dex or Str and it doesn't give you any of the other benefits of increasing those abilities. I don't think the option to trade a bonus action for advantage once per short-rest is comes close to making up for that opportunity cost. Salasay 09:36, 24 May 2023 (MDT)
