So far I'm liking what they've done with Warlocks, Sorcerers and Druids are a close second

Huh. I didn't even know there was a version 5.
Last I heard version 4 is complete toss so everyone just played 3.5
What is your opinion on 3.5 vs 4, and how is 5 so far?

I never really liked 4e, It seemd to over complicate some stuff. Don't get me wrong, people played it, and still do. But I wasn't one of them. So far I'm liking 5e, it has lots of fun stuff in it , and so far none of the classes look way more powerful then any of the others. Anyway, I'm sure dndxplain might be able to explain what I'm talking about better.

Does it support homebrewing things like classes or races?

Does it have the same freedom as 3.5? (i.e. allowing any class to use any weapon efficiently, provided they have the prerequisites.)

Homebrew is allowed in every edition, this is no different. Not so much support on a "these are the guidlines for creating your own race or class" kinda way, but as long as any DM you play with OKs it, and you understand that things might change if you unbalance the game, then sure.

As far as weapons go, instead of a "Base attack bonus", you had in 3.5 you now have a "Proficiency bonus" which is determind by you level. And you add that proviciency bonus to anything you're proficienct with(except damage rolls). So yes you can use any weapon, but if you're not proficient with it you won't get as big of a bonus to hit. Wizards has a free pdf out called the "Basic Rules". It has some of the base classes and races, and most of the other rules in it, check it out

Sorry, what I meant was is homebrewing easier? I recall in the DM handbook, all you got for suggestions to making a new class was altering a current class until it no longer resembled that class.

Ahh, well the DMG isn't out yet. Doesn't come out till next month I believe, but we do get a 'basic DMG' pdf sometime this month. As far as something like custom classes, I was never a fan of them, so I wouldn't know, and the problem I see with this is destroying balance by making that one class that can do absolutely everything (not that druids/clerics/wizards needed help doing that in 3.5) Either way we'll have to wait for the DMG to come out to actually answer your question. For now, this has enough to get games going without the need for a DMG

Ahh well so far it looks good, aes a whole it definatly seems more balanced across melee and caster classes. and plays pretty easy. The rules are straight forward and since there isn't a lot out now there's none of that "Let me go look in that obscure rule book for what I'm doing." Wizards has a free pdf out called the "Basic Rules"(that will be updated sometime this week) that covers a lot of whats in the PHB here, just doesn't have all the classes or races(or sub-races, and special class archetypes), but the rest of the rules are there. Give it a look

(08/12/2014) [-]
probably that 5e seems more akin to 3.5. But I don't think that I'm the one to answer this question. I never really got into 4e, I tried, but it seemed to convoluted and I just wasn't having fun. dndxplain you have a better answer? Hope I'm not misspelling his name...

From what I've experienced it's much less "Gamey" than the 4th ED with a removal of the At-Will/Encounter/Utility/Daily "Powers" and absolute necessity of maps/figurines. You also get character flaws and moments of inspiration, so if you RP properly etc you can gain a roll bonus to use at some point to ONE roll.

Yes it's 5e, it looks like a cross between older D&D and 5e, there is not much released yet since all the Manuals aren't out yet, at all, other than the Basic Rules, but the Players Manual is coming out next week. Though from what I've seen so far they've made it very easy to get into since they made a lot of Character Advancement that they had before (Feats and the like) optional and instead made Archetypes required when you hit a certain level. Personally I think it's good for new players, but I personally would stick with 3e or Pathfinder due to the content that it already has and I feel like they are more open ended.

One of the local groups I know admitted they never really read the rulebook, they just played the way it seemed right.

You're actually always welcome to do that, just as long as you understand that its homebrew, and not official content(and don't try to pass it off as such) no one really minds. Some actually encourage that you only use the books as a backbone
