Why does cover work like this in 5e? A bonus to saves instead of advantage! Is this the only time this happens? #dnd pic.twitter.com/U6ZMOW8kd4

Curious why cover grants a bonus? A bonus makes you actually harder to hit, and we wanted cover to stack with advantage/disadvantage, such as from being invisible.
Bonuses are rarer now than they were in previous editions of the game, but they do still pop up. #DnD https://t.co/3aie9IYqte
