Sneak Attack

Post by Jared Rascher »

I just wanted to post this to say that I have been enjoying that UA analysis on Sneak Attack. Any idea what kind of mini topics might be coming once WOTC isn't dropping UAs on a regular basis again?

We’re not 100% sure but we’re open to topic suggestions.

I'd love to hear about what 3rd party items you and Shawn have had the chance to look at recently.

Personally I’m laying out something right now and shawn might have some things to say about some Kobold Press stuff so we will see what we can come up with.

On the most recent Sneak Attack, you started discussing the ranger.

There is a ranger subclass that grants a 1d6 when you denote someone as your prey currently. Slayer's Prey from the Monster Slayer archetype, you spend a bonus action to designate prey, and that prey takes 1d6 damage once per turn when you hit with a weapon attack.

It doesn't come in to play until 3rd level, but it's really what Hunter's Mark should have been for all the Ranger archetypes.

Thanks for that, Jared. I thought there was something like it, but I didn't search before recording.
