Hi adventurers of every size! Welcoming to my website, and thanks for choosing the 14th article in our series of dnd feats. Today we’re going to be taking a look at the tough-guy feat durable. Durable dnd5e feat can be found in the players’ handbook. This feat is fascinating because the people who are most affected by it are not necessarily the ones you might think.
That being said if you don’t know how a feat works or when you get them. They usually appear every four levels. You will get them in different classes, but they all come up every four levels. These are in addition to your ability score increases. They’re essentially additional traits or abilities or expertise you can give your character to give them. You can give them a personal touch to make them truly yours. That being said let’s take a look at the description for durable here.
So great news is there’s no prerequisite for it. So, anyone can use it for any class, race, skill set doesn’t matter and the description reads as followed.
These are the advantages of being a tough and resilient individual:
- Your Constitution score can be increased by 1 for maximum 20.
- Roll the hit die to regain hit points. The minimum hit point you gain from the roll is twice your Constitution modifier (minimum 2).
Fantastic a little bit tricky on the wording in that last one but i’ll explain it better down below and that being said let’s take a look at a quick walkthrough and really flesh this out.
The +1 constitution is quite simple to understand. The second bullet point is about your minimum hit rule. It equals twice your constitution modifier. I don’t know why wizards were to go like that but in any case that’s what it means. That’s kind of a quick. Let’s take a look at my thoughts on it.
According to me, the casters and wizards are the ones who benefit the most from this bar none. The smallest hit die, but often had a large con bonus or modifier. A reason being if you’re a wizard worth your salt you’re gonna be using a lot of concentration spells. You don’t want to lose your concentration by being bumped from behind. This is why a very large con modifier is so important.
So assuming you have a con modifier of like plus 2 or 3, you can’t ever roll beneath a 6 or eight for your health when you get a back. That’s really good that’s fantastic, that’s a buff your maximum roll sometimes. So, they’re the once that gain the most from it. You might disagree with me, but i think this is a great feat for a party without a designated healer. However, there’s plenty of time to make sure arrests. This would be ideal.
However, I would love to hear about any other uses, stories, or builds you might have. I’m really curious to see what you guys have to say. I’m sure everyone reading this is as well. I am grateful for your time and I thank you for following me today. As always, guys, happy adventuring.
