Hello adventurers! Welcome to my website! Today we are taking a look at the final feat in the recent unearthed arcana(UA) release and subsequently one of my favorites, i like this one it’s really simple to understand. That being said if you’re unfamiliar with UA, this is play testable material, it is no way shape or form canon to any degree of dungeons and dragons. It’s just something wizards of the coast is experimenting around with. So if by the end of this article this is something that you’d want to pick please consult your DM about it. Honestly i wouldn’t allow this unless you were an experienced player and even then i’d probably only allow from the confines of a one shot. But that’s just me ultimately it’s your own DM’s call. Now let’s take a quick look at the full description here so you can better understand what’s going on.
There is a prerequisite for all feats. You must possess the psionic abilities feature. These are the steps:
Prerequisite: Psionic Talent feature or Wild Talent feat
Your mind’s defenses are formidable. After you or an another creature that you can see within almost 30 feet of you fails a saving throw, you can even use all of your reaction to roll your Psionic Talent die and also add a number rolled to the saving throw and it’s potentially causing it to succeed.
This is amazing! It’s very simple. If you see in any of the other articles they usually like two to three points and they’re quite lengthy in terms of their discussion. Now let’s take a look at the walkthrough and simplify this as best as we can.
It really is quite simple this kind of reminds me of the second-chance feat from the xanathar’s guide to everything guide it’s a halfling exclusive where it’s a very close to this only. Instead of re rolling the one, it let’s you add a number or add your die to the actual save itself.
What’s cool about this is you can do so after you know it fails. These are known as fade intervention mechanisms. I like that i think it’s cool in this context at least. It’s interesting and different from many of its competition.
That being said let’s get to my personal thoughts on it.
Although it was an issue I had dealt with before, I found this one to be very enjoyable. Once again i probably won’t allow any of these in my main campaigns. Maybe in one-shot. It would be a lot of fun to play with. Out of the three or four technically we’ve covered this is by far the one that i consider to be the least offensive i guess. But it’s i don’t know i feel like a lot of min/maxers are gonna go crazy with this for some reason. I’m just imagining a cleric taking this and also taking bless and guidance and really just stacking up the buffs. However, it’s possible to receive blessing guidance and concentration. It might not be possible for all casters. Yeah! Yes!
Grab Your Clothes
Let me know what you think down beneath, if you think it’s way out of whack how would you balance it? Are these two feats worth it? Even though it seems unlikely, I believe that it can be rewarding, especially if you are fortunate enough to obtain one. If not a little better in some cases but i don’t know that’s just my thoughts and that being said.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments section. Your feedback is very much appreciated. That being said i hope you’ll have a great day and as always a happy adventuring everyone.
