Beast Master Ranger balance

Sage Advice: Master Jeremy is right, it depends on context and your DM campaign.
If your adventure is in a multi level mega dungeon could be an hard task for Rangers, Druids and, if dungeon is very narrow, casters that can’t use their area effects/long distance spells.
But the problem could be similar in a city, where is more important to be sneaky or charismatic : area effect caster or Barbarians could be very cumbersome.

So my advice is to talk with your DM before campaign start and decide together wich classes could be better for all of you.

  1. That is really a great question, since, in terms of combat, I felt the beast master ranger the weakest class in D&D 5.0, I really felt the potential of the beast underestimated and the combat skills of the ranger are really bad, if you compare it with barbarian or fighter and they don’t need even take a path, just their normal evolution are far better, in addition the hunter is fine, but I think that the ranger beast require a lot of improvements to be even bad.

    Our home rule for Ranger beast master is , beast can act on its own turns and initiative, and receives new commands as a bonus action from the ranger. The beast is augmented 4x ranger level in hp.
