Talk:Dragon Crystal Blade (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
A Few Problems
This weapon seems to have a few balance/other problems that likely need to be addressed. As a general note, the weapon needs to do something more unique besides just dealing additional damage to dragons. The Anti-Draconic property, as of right now doesn't really work and is confusing. All creatures in D&D have a creature type, a size, and ect. other info. A creature that has the dragon type is considered to be a dragon or is related to dragons while trying lump all creature even remotely related to dragons into one category can not be done. As such, the property needs to be "When you hit a dragon with the blade, that creature takes an extra 1d10 necrotic damage." and such a property would only affect creatures which are specifically dragons.
The Extra Attack property needs to be renamed to something else as the name is a prominent class feature in a number of classes. The property also needs to be rewritten to make the property much clearer(when do you get an extra attack, do you need to use something to use it, what ability score is used for damage, ect.).--Blobby383b (talk) 01:56, 16 September 2019 (MDT)
- In addition, the casual comment at the end also needs removed. User/players don't get it. Articles need to be clear and concise for everyone of any intelligence to just pick up and play, and even then you may an issue. I want to echo Blobby too; there isn't a half dragon creature type, you could get away with a dragonborn tag but you really muddy the waters with the crunch of the game and are introducing something I feel is avoided in 5e. I'd use verbiage like Blobby has provided. 10:02, 25 September 2019 (MDT)
