Talk:Hyrule: Sage (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Talking About Subclasses
Subclasses for this class are fairly strict and are meant to emulate being a type of sage from legend of Zelda, hence the subclasses are designed around such an idea. The recent addition of the blessed by god subclass not only isn't a sage, but is generally poorly worded and balanced in addition to it not following the design of the other subclasses (18th level having an aura, all features of the subclass being based on their element, ect.). As such, I am undoing the recent edit which made the subclass.--Blobby383b (talk) 14:28, 31 October 2019 (MDT)
- As the primary contributor to the class, I also felt "blessed by the god" did not fit well. I think the intent was to create a subclass of Princess Zelda as she performs in Super Smash Bros.? Maybe? But that could be accomplished just as well with a Sage of Light that picked up fireball somehow. Smash's version of Din's fire behaves almost exactly like D&D's fireball, after all.
- I think there's room for Phantom Slash as a sage spell, though. I imagine that is what the "Animated Armor" feature was referencing. - Guy 20:10, 31 October 2019 (MDT)
It appears someone gave a review for this specific class on reddit, so I guess I'll just leave this link here: .
I incorporated some of the suggestions into the class.- Guy 06:03, 14 November 2019 (MST)
- I feel the need to remark on the bit about spell points looking "criminally broken." If one examines page 288 of the Dungeon Master's Guide, one will see the sage actually has fewer spell points than the DMG suggests for a class like this. If this feature is broken, then the DMG itself insists it should be more broken. - Guy 06:09, 14 November 2019 (MST)
