@matthileothe PHB / basic rules say you gain hitpoints to your max when leveling up. Do you also gain that many current hitpoitns? yes, both should increase

@JeremyECrawford NPC races in DMG (p. 282) – are those balanced with the PC races? (i.e. can players use them without breaking things?)

@jeb_1981 The table refers to averages for hit points and damage.

@bjrecioranger companion: “Its hp max is its normal max or…” If the beast has 2d8+2 hp, does “normal max” mean 11, or 18? #dnd5E It means whatever max the DM sets in the given hp range. If the DM uses the average in the stat block, the max is 11.

@khelthrosThe overchannel ability for wizards. Can it be used to max cantrip damage? At no cost as well, since it’s a 0 level spell? as written, yes, but i'd house rule it to increase the damage by 1d12

@khelthros I see… Wizards have insane damage (Meteor Swarm). Will other classes, like Fighters, be able to keep up? yes – compare meteor swarm's 40d6 to 8 attacks from a fighter using action surge. Fighter can easily get up to 140 damage
