Talk:Reaver (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
I am no writer and as such, probably failed in trying to convey what I wanted this class to feel like. A power hungry, corrupted, borderline psychotic adventurer. Cause let's face it, in reality if there was a goblin about to attack us, we'd freak out!
- References, Ideas, and Notes.
- Most of the ideas I got for this class comes from a few different sources that I'd like to mention. First the name and general feel for the class/Devourer, Dragon Age Reaver subclass for the warrior.
- The Source Leech, started out as your generic bloodmage, but then changed into a something of its own.
- The Corrupted Forger at first was just a summoner that turned into a sort of Spiderman Symbiote hybrid.
- Eventually the spells that will be added will be very similar if not exact copies of spells from the homebrew Dark Arts Player Companion.
- Fighting Styles updated via Dawnforged.
- And finally, I appreciate any constructive criticism. This class was built with my home group in mind and does not reflect the boarder scope of players. I may have gotten somethings, or many things, wrong or inbalanced. Any play test feedback is always appreciated. Troah
Comments to Changes
Heyo, I've gone ahead and fixed up the class according to the criticism before, along with sorting out spelling mistakes and such. Currently happy with the base class, and sorting out all of the Callings. Currently the construct doesn't sit right, and the 10th feature of the Source Leech doesn't either.

- These are still being worked away on, but for now seem good. The spelling still needs to be checked over, but the layout is there.
Correct wording for Soul Leech would be: "If a creature is reduced to 0 hit points within 30 feet of you on your turn then you gain temporary hit points equal to 1d8 + your reaver level. This does not occur if the creature is a construct or undead. You can use soul leech a number of times equal to your Constitution modifier. You regain your uses at the end of a long rest".
I recommend reading through the PHB to get the hang of how things are worded, because many parts of this class can be improved. For example, Blood and Glory should say "your weapon attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20". Marasmusine (talk) 10:37, 28 May 2019 (MDT)
- Soul Leech and similar have had their changes completed, with a few more rewording and balances to effects like the Aura of Pain, and the Devourer's Healing.
