Talk:Master Recuperator (5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
is this supposed to take an action, bonus action, or is it just passive? it says "you may" so i assume it must cost something and not simply be a passive heal.
This is Paul, the creator of the feat. I’m new to this site, so correct me if this isn’t how you’re supposed to reply to things. This is a passive heal, I thought it was balanced because the passive healing received required you to have absolutely no negative status effects and it essentially has a 25% chance to not heal you at all. The 1d4 bonus to healing also requires you to be free from negative status effects. I’ll change the wording.
- It's not balanced, sorry. Even if it were 1 hit point every minute, limitless passive regeneration is not used in D&D 5e. It breaks the "hit point economy," as anyone can simply take 20 and heal to full outside of battle. Varkarrus (talk) 11:10, 11 December 2018
I wouldn’t call it limitless, but I guess it would need work. I didn’t think of the feat outside of combat. I was thinking the fact you had to have no negative side effects and took - 1 off the roll made it fair. Do you have any suggestions?
- The way I'd do it is give it a limited pool of hit points you can draw from, somewhere in the vicinity of 2 points per character level (which'd make it comparable to the Tough racial feature which is +2 max hit points per character level). That's how I made a race with regenerative capabilities. I'd also advise against making the rate of regeneration based off of a roll, just to minimize the number of dice you need to roll each turn.

- Alternatively, making it also give a bonus to how much hit points you heal during a short rest might be good. I.E, +3 hit points per hit die rolled when making a short rest. That'd fit in line with the name of the feat. Varkarrus (talk) 16:28, 11 December 2018 (MST)
I’ve redone the feat, incorporating your suggestions. Honestly, I think it’s much better now. I made it similar to lay on hands, though you can’t apply it to other players.
