If you’re a battle smith, you ARE the frontliner.


TheFirstPancake101

Yeah but it’s just so much easier for the party to buff the steel defender and watch the show


Slavasonic

My defender always gets attacked first because enemies quickly realize they can’t hit my artificer especially with the disadvantage from the defender.


TheFirstPancake101

Not to mention the giant metal automaton is easily the most threatening thing on the battlefield. Or at least it appears that way til one of the casters get a little ‘fireball’ happy


Slavasonic

Well my automaton is a giant metal goose. So I don’t know how threatening it appears…


TheFirstPancake101

Geese are vicious freaks of nature. I would 100% be more terrified of a massive metal one than if it were a large metal man


Slavasonic

Peace was never an option


IOpuu_KpuBopykuu

It was a question and the answer was **no**


Dovahhkiin64

Mine is a giant hummingbird with a sword for a beak. It managed to instantly kill a goblin by downward thrusting it's beak into her skull.


Myredditnaim

And just like that the starship troopers brainbug nightmares are back.


Hotarg

"They stabbed his brains out!"


DeniedTransbian

The Aztec believed fallen warriors were reincarnated as hummingbirds because of their ferocity.


Dovahhkiin64

I believe it considering hummingbirds are known to stab each other to death over flowers.


TypicalPunUser

*metallic honk screech*


Maddbro

Idk how much you know about geese, but if the comments haven't informed you, geese wake up and choose violence every day. Lol


Kartoffelofdoom

Australia would lose a war against your defender


crimsystuff

Have you ever seen a pissed off goose?


CopperCactus

Same, Toby Grimboodle the Gnomish artificer was incredibly proud of Grimboodle's Outstanding Offense Suppression Equipment


Brodimere

My defender was a frankenstein flesh golem, mixed with Solomon Grundy. 7'2'' muscular beast of a man, that never tired. When he pulled my wagon, it felt more like an egyptian warchariot, from which i could shoot anyone.


halcyonson

That's why I love Fighting Initiate or multi-classing fighter. The Protector Fighting Style makes the Defender just as difficult to hit.


ItsPandy

Nah. My warforged battle smith uses a longbow because he is convinced that he is a beastmaster. ranger


awesome357

I just swapped my ranged weapon out for a solid melee one. I'm excited to see how it goes next time we get some combat.


B3C4U5E_

Not with a repeating heavy crossbow im not. That goes to the defender


NobilisUltima

Great scene choice, solid writing, well captioned. +1.


Chubalubas

What movie is that from?


Rapidfyrez

Deadpool 2


Breakfeast-Bo_23

One of the few times a sequel was just as good as the original


nimmalt

It's got everything - emotion, character development, action, comedy, and an ending that promises more. Mostly action and comedy though, which happens to be why I like it.


Breakfeast-Bo_23

Action comedies are the best. I highly recommend Nobody, although it feels more like 70% action and 30% comedy


nimmalt

That's a good spread, in my opinion. I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere.


vonBoomslang

also Peter.


Mnjlk

Im playing a warlock atm thats an absolute tank


Snakew33d

Did you mean warlock or is there some new multi class combo called a warlick


Mnjlk

Just a typo lmao my bad


TheAngryCelt

A warlock bard multiclass is a warlick.


NCats_secretalt

I prefer the term 'Whorelock', with absolute respect


henrywrm

Isn’t that what you call a Benedict Cumberbatch fan?


NCats_secretalt

You're thinking of SuperWholock, which is ~~the term used to refer to the three major shows that were popular on tumblr, Doctor Who, Supernatural and Sherlock~~ what you call a warlock who is really good at abusing modify memory to make sure no one remembers them


UsernamIsToo

My rogue with a Cloak of Displacement is our party's front liner. It works great until it doesn't.


gerisidle3

I have a warforged artificer who said fuck using magic and decided to punch things instead


That_Lore_Guy

I love the play-by-play! Great job with the meme 👏


WannabeWonk

As a battle smith, I love this meme <3 Altho I believe the steel defender does 1d8 force damage (plus your proficiency), not 2d6.


DrinkNozarashi

Arcane Jolt, the 9th level Battle Smith ability, makes it so you or your Steel Defender can deal an extra 2d6 Force damage (4d6 at 15th level) or heal a target within 30 of you/it for 2d6 (4d6 at 15th) up to your Intelligence Modifier per Long Rest


WannabeWonk

Oh hell yeah, 1d8 + 2d6. You go pupper.


Mandalore108

That's great, our Battle Smith is going to like that. Right now the Steel Defender hasn't done too much.


TheBlueNinja0

The SD isn't supposed to be a major force by itself. The main use is flanking (so your Arty or another melee type gets advantage), and being able to hobble enemies with disadvantage.


Mandalore108

He also tends to forget about him a lot as well which is the main issue lol.


Advanced-Carry-1440

He got me with " Big CGI fight coming up", and more so because he did the Juggernaut too.


darktowerseeker

Jesus. Was that a chromatic juggernaut?


Ishigami-the-Kami

You have a Sorcerer and a Wizard at the same party? By the way, this edit looks amazing.


perp00

If you are an Armorer you are the BEST tank it could be. Highest AC, now just add Warforged (for AC) or some other race for resistance (or dwarf for poison immunity) and you are good to go.
