Fifth Edition Feats (5e)

I have to agree with most of the previous reviewers, this product is somewhat frustrating. On the one hand, it shows great potential with an interesting and extensive lineup of feats. On the other hand, it appears to have been lazily edited and the feats' adherence to the 5E rules is often spotty. It should also be noted, that the feats found within are implicitly not meant to be used in addition with the Player's Handbook's list but rather to replace it.

Still, the underlying content is good enough to have prompted me to polish this gem in the rough before introducing it in our game. Although I should not have had to put in so much work revising the product, the fact that I will actually be using it still warrants giving it 3 out of 5 stars.

Was very dissapointed by this product. it is a very sloppy cut n' paste/search n' replace hack of the 3.5/Pathfinder SRD. The translation to 5e is really just above the minimum neccessary and lack any imaginative use of the 5e system.

This product need a total rework to be concidered worth the money. Just to mention the most (to me) glaring problem, the graininess. A Feat in 3.5 etc is usually one or sometimes two per level, in 5e it is one per fourth (about) and REPLACE a stat increase. It shouldn't be just a little fnutty plus in something, it should be a major flavour choice of the character! Not all Feats in 5e manage that, it is true, but this product fails it constantly...

Should have seen the signs, because they are written all over the wall, but my Feat-hunger got me into a buying frenzy.

Designers should really try to break out of the 3.5 mindset for the 5e, actually the freeform of the OSR is a better source of ideas currently.

I did not play the 3.5 edition of D&D, so I don't know how faithfully this product ports those feats to 5e. I agree with others that the fee (even at $8) is too high for the information provided. The product looks professional and it contains good ideas that can be used to develop 5e feats for use in your campaign, but I would consider perhaps 30% of the feats in the book to be usable as "plug-and-play" 5e feats. Some of the feats are too weak, others are too strong (too weak is more common). Also, some of the feats are variations on the 5e PHB feats that are slightly different, but not significant improvements.

3 stars because the book includes some good ideas and concepts that can be used to develop feats you might not have thought of on your own.

For those concerned about the price, we generally sell 20 feats for $1.99, 30 feats for $2.99, etc. Consequently, a book with 160 feats is $15.99 in full color print, and only half that in PDF.

Positives first. The cover art is truly beautiful and the material is well-presented within.

That aside, however, this is certainly NOT worth the money. There are very few, poorly balanced new feats within this book. Many others are slightly reworded variations of feats from earlier editions of the game. It brings nothing new to the game at all and is certainly not worth even the discounted cost of $8 for these 31 pages. Actually, it's 27 pages in VERY LARGE TYPE. Front and back cover, title page, and leagal document I do not count. The print is huge to disguise the lack of content on these few pages, and what content there is is worthless. You could easily go to a website like Tenkar's Tavern, spend a few minutes talking to folks in their forums, and find FREE resources more in-depth and valuable than this.

Save your money for other, more worthwhile purchases on this site, please.

This review is correct in some respects but doesn\'t address the intent of the book. This title gives players looking for options they had in 3.5 a good way to get them with 5e mechanics. Also, some of the feats that were adapted from the core 5e game were done so they could be of use in other publisher\'s products via the OGL. As with anything, your mileage may vary.

This was a great buy. The D&D 5e Player's Handbook is somewhat short on feat options and this book goes in depth from past editions to bring more of the mainstay feats to the fore again. I might not take all the feats, but there are enough in here that you are going to find a number of them very useful and worthwhile. Most notably, I like that they addressed some of the class abilities that a lot of 5e players were critical of. The Beastmaster ranger especially felt a little off, and there are feats in here to address some of those class weaknesses.

There's actually over 160 feats, and for sheer content, this is well worth the PDF price. I'll rate this at 5 stars, because it's a nice looking product that delivers on content missing from the new D&D game. Things seeem pretty balanced, as you need to use your bonus actions/reactions to make a lot of the impressive features work optimally.
