3.5 is shit
Idk, i've been playing 3.5 for about 5 years now and just recently started in a 5e game. To be honest i like it a lot more. 3.5 for me was endless research and rule lawyering through 50 different books, 100 different feats, dozens of different rule interactions across 15 years of content trying to make characters that post level 10 would actually survive because T3 in 3.5 is just "save or dies: the game".
In 5e though since not a lot is out yet there was only like one book to read and tbh it had a LOT of stuff from 3.5. like i see class features and stuff from obscure books in 3.5 and said "wow this would be neat if it was core and not broken as hell." IN 5e AS class features that actually worked within the system. Since there arent that many books i was able to actually have time to read the whole players handbook and the DMG and look at how the game is structured and tbh they whole system is pretty versatile and, yes, lends it self to a more story-based style of play. However, it's easier to homebrew things if you even need to.
Though i think the thing im liking the most is the numbers. Holy shit the numbers. They actually mean so much more to me now. In 3.5 i could do like 80 damage with one spell or the barbarian does 50 damage in his whole round but the monster has like a billion health and damage reduction and spell resistance and OH GOD WHAT IS THAT- to the point where the numbers didn't mean anything to me anymore. In 5e though they lowered a lot of those numbers so that in my opinion the numbers mean more. Hell, in the 5e game im not worried about combat. im confident my chracter can handle things so instead of spending hours trying to minmax him im literally dedicating a lot of feats to cooking at this point. He's a monk chef. If i did something like THAT in 3.5 i'd be asking for my character to get cunt-punted out of the game by something that would insta gibb me. In that way i just like that i can play my chracter and the game at the same time instead of playing this number game with huge numbers that only vaguely mean anything and RP is an afterthought. Maybe that's just the kind of player i am at this point.
I have some respect for 3.5 in that you can customize a lot, but after spending years learning it and knowing how to snap it in half and almost feeling forced to snap it in half so my character that i love so much actually lives - it's kind of boring. I really think they did a LOT right with 5e, maybe it's not perfect but what system is.
now to be fair that needs in deep knowledge, anyone can look up wizard 9th level spell list and sees shit like: Time stop, wish, power word kill, wail of the banshee, prismatic sphere, energy drain, weird, ect.
Even though in some ways 3.5 even put nervs on some things wizard can do. For example unlike in pathfinder in 3.5 you have to pay in XP for making any sort of magical item or construct, which of course as wizards hurts you greatly as you are dependant on getting new bigger spells. In pathfinder? If the fucking wizard has the feats and enough money you can expect him to either create items of mass destruction or build an army of golems / clockworks that soon start to replicait themself.
Wizards get said to fight dirty, but that´s honestly the only way they can at times even survive till they get their power ups because of their sheer shquishyness.
Exactly this, it all depends how you build the character.
Often the best casters have very few damage spells, but even in a question of kill potential honestly fighters, barbarians, paladins etc can be absolutely brutal if built correctly.
Hell, often they easily out damage casters;
for instance charge damage multiplication, a Valorous weapon (2x damage mod on charge), Rhino's rush (2x damage mod on charge (puts total to 3x mod)), throw in leap attack, divine might and travel devotion on a pally you can easily charge like 60-90ft ([spoiler] chuck in boots of haste if you really want to go distances (150ft+ charges (keeping in mind 50/60ft of this is travel devotion free movement to get around terrain)
) and do 60-120 damage on a charge around level 8, and if you really wanted to increase that pick up a lance and spirited charge for mounted charging, that's a 5x damage mod total on a charge and you can safely assume the target is dead if hit. [/spoiler] every time I see someone complain about close combat being shite in 3.5 I find they approach it in the very basic (I attack, I attack, I attack), the best thing to do is point them towards things like tome of battle and actions you can take in combat (there's so many ways to get free trip attempts / disarms and other disables
You can get a bloody charisma scaling stun on a weapon as a free action on successful hits for a flat 2k cost [Sudden Stunning]
If people think wizards are bad, wait until they see better magic 2.0 (psionics).
Psions with energy missile, that's what scares me.
wait till your psion sees an artificer.
Let me just give you this situation. completely normal deal for an artificer, not even the most optimal way to go about things.
he uses a class ability to put split ray and quicken on a bootleg wand of disintegrate he spent 2k gold on.
he blasts out 2 rays, each splitting into 2 rays, and by doing this he spends 10 charges.
the overall cost of this nuke would be 18000 gold, but an artificer could get that down to about 1500 gold spent, for an average of 560 damage a per round.
Good man, (although I just use pathfinder.)
