    You know, as a DM I don't actually mind that. A fighter doing massive damage is encouraged. The ones that annoy the shit out of me are the ones where enemies are kept alive so players can play 20 Questions with them.

    You can powerplay or minmax as you like as long as you stick with the curated list of character options for the game and read the setting hook informations tied to each choice.

    There's so many things your DM can do, in accordance with Rule 0, that can just invalid your build.
    If you want your mastery over a game's mechanics to matter, play a game first.

      Don’t even have to go that far really. The fighter can still only make so many attacks per turn. I’ll just have more fights with multiple weaker opponents and fewer fights with one big guy.

      It’s kind of the best of both worlds, actually. The fighter gets to feel like a boss as he one-shots baddies, while numerical advantage means that I’m still slowly draining the party of resources and challenging them. Everybody wins.

        Yeah, it's good that you're a good DM who does good things. That doesn't make D&D conducive to system mastery, it just means a given group has to hope they have a good DM who does good things.

          I mean that’s true of any system, though. That’s not unique to D&D at all, it’s just noticed more because there’s overwhelmingly more DMs for D&D that there are gamemasters or any other system - Hell, there’s almost more DMs than there are gamemasters for *every* other system combined, at least in the English-language market.

            And any "system" that does that isn't a game. It becomes about where the arbiter is going to move the goalposts for any or no reason, instead of about the players reaching the goals through their talents.
            If you want to do freeform improv, that's fine, but it's not a game.

        D&D admitted the part you're not supposed to speak out loud: that the GM screen allows for fudging of dice rolls for dramatic/fun effect. "Rule 0" isn't an actual rule and literally any GM in any system can do it.

        There's a dedicated autist that insists that D&D actually explaining this means it's not really a game.

      And this is the typical daddy DM mother-may-I Calvinball bullshit that happens all too often.
      I'd rather just play a game, so my characters can use its established parameters within its limitations to reach their goals and adapt to a combat situation, instead of this… "nuh uh yeah huh" meta back and forth.

    Meanwhile my character:
    >Cleric 4/ Ordained Champion 3/ Knight of the Raven 6
    >Extend Spell, Persist Spell, Practiced Spellcaster, Divine Metamagic Persist, Holy Warrior
    >Extra Turning, Martial Weapon Proficiency(War Domain), Weapon Focus Longsword (War Domain)
    >Power Attack, Parrying Shield, Law Devotion, Skill Trick : ECSTATIC FERVOR, Skill Trick : COLLECTOR OF STORIES (gained as a reward for almost winning a story telling contest)
    He has a decent number of tricks on his sleeve, although he does spend most of the time supporting the rest of the part together with the Bard and playing secondary melee combatant.
    He is more than capable of (air) walking up to a Cornugon and slaughtering the thing on his own, given the absolutely best circumstances, as seen a couple of sessions ago, although the DM might have been pulling his punches too.
    I'm really having fun playing this character, in combat and otherwise.

      Skill tricks were such a good idea. Why didn't they keep them going forward?

        That's a lot of 3.5e. Introduce neat idea in a theme appropriate book and completely abandon that idea later.
        I think there were a grand total of 2 books with skill tricks in them.
        That's part of the charm of the system too, I think. The sheer volume of stuff, even if some of the stuff ended up being sort of vestigial or underdeveloped.

        Regarding sheer damage?
        Oh yeah.
        A run of the mil frenzied berzerker with tons of strength and power attack could out damage my character easy.
        And that's fine. I built the character around a theme and from a origin story, so his build ended up being quite organic since I incorporated things like the celestial raven and stuff into it. I really like how he turned out and how he performs so far.
