When there’s no front-liner, you gotta work with what you got
By - TheFirstPancake101
If you’re a battle smith, you ARE the frontliner.
Yeah but it’s just so much easier for the party to buff the steel defender and watch the show
My defender always gets attacked first because enemies quickly realize they can’t hit my artificer especially with the disadvantage from the defender.
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
Well my automaton is a giant metal goose. So I don’t know how threatening it appears…
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
Peace was never an option
It was a question and the answer was **no**
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.
And just like that the starship troopers brainbug nightmares are back.
"They stabbed his brains out!"
The Aztec believed fallen warriors were reincarnated as hummingbirds because of their ferocity.
I believe it considering hummingbirds are known to stab each other to death over flowers.
*metallic honk screech*
Idk how much you know about geese, but if the comments haven't informed you, geese wake up and choose violence every day. Lol
Australia would lose a war against your defender
Have you ever seen a pissed off goose?
Same, Toby Grimboodle the Gnomish artificer was incredibly proud of Grimboodle's Outstanding Offense Suppression Equipment
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.
That's why I love Fighting Initiate or multi-classing fighter. The Protector Fighting Style makes the Defender just as difficult to hit.
Nah. My warforged battle smith uses a longbow because he is convinced that he is a beastmaster. ranger
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.
Not with a repeating heavy crossbow im not. That goes to the defender
Great scene choice, solid writing, well captioned. +1.
What movie is that from?
One of the few times a sequel was just as good as the original
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.
Action comedies are the best. I highly recommend Nobody, although it feels more like 70% action and 30% comedy
That's a good spread, in my opinion. I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere.
Im playing a warlock atm thats an absolute tank
Did you mean warlock or is there some new multi class combo called a warlick
Just a typo lmao my bad
A warlock bard multiclass is a warlick.
I prefer the term 'Whorelock', with absolute respect
Isn’t that what you call a Benedict Cumberbatch fan?
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
My rogue with a Cloak of Displacement is our party's front liner. It works great until it doesn't.
I have a warforged artificer who said fuck using magic and decided to punch things instead
I love the play-by-play! Great job with the meme 👏
As a battle smith, I love this meme <3 Altho I believe the steel defender does 1d8 force damage (plus your proficiency), not 2d6.
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
Oh hell yeah, 1d8 + 2d6. You go pupper.
That's great, our Battle Smith is going to like that. Right now the Steel Defender hasn't done too much.
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.
He also tends to forget about him a lot as well which is the main issue lol.
He got me with " Big CGI fight coming up", and more so because he did the Juggernaut too.
Jesus. Was that a chromatic juggernaut?
You have a Sorcerer and a Wizard at the same party?
By the way, this edit looks amazing.
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.
