Talk:Heated Caster (5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
The prereqs go against conventional first party examples, so far. Ability scores and race have been used as prereqs and as a guideline feats are meant to be inclusive. More about that can be found here.
The first benefit is also, unclear or hard to comprehend. Or at least I find it hard to comprehend. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 08:56, 15 June 2018 (MDT)
- I made this at 6:25 in the morning when I both just woke up and needed to go to work. It's about to look completely different, except for the prereqs., which are custom built for casters that specialize in certain elements of spells, something which the normal game doesn't ever care about. A similar feat, Metallic Caster also follows this, but is a little better organized in its logic. The new version of this feat will use that same logic, but feel free to put me under scrutiny after I make the change. --Supersmily5 (talk) 11:22, 15 June 2018 (MDT)
- Also, as for "elements," I'm working on a custom ruleset that'll allow for this sort of shenanigans. I'm making these feats first, and will make that ruleset 2nd. In other words, it's basically incomplete. --Supersmily5 (talk) 11:24, 15 June 2018 (MDT)
- I'm not sure comparing an idea you have under scrutiny to a similar idea that you also created helps explain things. In addition, its better to compare material to 1st party content as suggested in Help:Precedent. I'd also disagree with the game not caring about specializing in element spells considering "Elemental Adept" in the Player's Handbook and "Flames of Phlegethos" in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. I look forward to what you come up with but also hope the advice is helpful. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 11:40, 15 June 2018 (MDT)
Currently, the game only cares about elements of magic in the sense of damage types. They are not considered to be the type of magic, only the type of damage. The ruleset I'm still making will incorporate this as part of the mechanics of magic and not just damage. As for the feats themselves, do you know of any way I might improve them? If they seem iffy, I'm willing to listen to reason, that's why they're here after all. --Supersmily5 (talk) 15:55, 15 June 2018 (MDT)
