The Life domain focuses on the vibrant positive energy — one of the fundamental forces of the universe — that sustains all life.
The gods of life promote vitality and health through healing the sick and wounded, caring for those in need, and driving away the forces of death and undeath. Almost any non-evil deity can claim influence over this domain, particularly agricultural deities such as Chauntea, Arawai, and Demeter , sun gods such as Lathander, Pelor, and Re-Horakhty , gods of healing or endurance such as Ilmater, Mishakal, Apollo, and Diancecht , and gods of home and community such as Hestia, Hathor, and Boldrei.
Also starting at 1st level, your healing spells are more effective. As an action, you present your holy symbol and evoke healing energy that can restore a number of hit points equal to five times your cleric level. Choose any creatures within 30 feet of you, and divide those hit points among them. This feature can restore a creature to no more than half of its hit point maximum. Beginning at 6th level, the healing spells you cast on others heal you as well. At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your weapon strikes with divine energy.
Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 radiant damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8. Starting at 17th level, when you would normally roll one or more dice to restore hit points with a spell, you instead use the highest number possible for each die. For example, instead of restoring 2d6 hit points to a creature, you restore Am I missing it, or is Cleric now allowed to use edged weapons that can draw blood?
I don't see anything here restricting me from making a Cleric who wields a handaxe and a short bow both are Simple Weapons, which this says I'm proficient with. This just feels wrong. Using bless to offset the accuracy debuff. Ah I see. Also the weapon has to be "heavy" for GWM and there are no "heavy" melee weapons that are not two-handed. This further pushes the investment in the character and party strategies at large as a damage dealer and not a tank lower AC than a pure tank, because they can't wield a shield.
I need to go one level deep into cleric for a build I'm making. I'm debating between Light for the imposing of disadvantage and the cool domain spells, or between Knowledge for the extra skills and languages for better utility outside of combat. There are other pantheons, such as Greyhawk which critical role uses, for those interested , but those are only available to people who buy the online players handbook.
Old clerics were kind of Crystal Dragon Jesus that is, modeled on medieval Christianity but with fantasy stuff and followed some obscure rules from real history. Nowadays, you can make clerics dedicated to all kinds of gods, including gods who love axes. You two must be grognards. Next you will be complaining that clerics have spells above 7th level. I do not require two bonus actions to do this. I play my War Domain Cleric like a better at least at early levels fighter, and have in fact taken levels in fighter as I advanced to better use the martial class features and powerful combat buffs offered by the Domain.
Critical Role actually uses a customized version of the Dawn War pantheon, the official pantheon of 4th edition. This page lists content from the basic, free rules. TThat as sooo stupid in the first place Our party has a super conservative Barbarian with Shield Master and she frequently is able to knock her targets prone, then I come in from behind and double great weapon master attack with advantage it's kind of broken funny.
Once I get another level Humanoids be ware! Hold person is something I can't wait for, I can hold them, if they double fail save. Now they do need to fail 2 saves and they might get lucky but they also might get unlucky so what's the harm right? Also if I have the time I could try to bane them before that. Sign In Register. Life Domain The Life domain focuses on the vibrant positive energy — one of the fundamental forces of the universe — that sustains all life. Life Domain Spells Cleric Level Spells 1st bless , cure wounds 3rd lesser restoration , spiritual weapon 5th beacon of hope , revivify 7th death ward , guardian of faith 9th mass cure wounds , raise dead Bonus Proficiency When you choose this domain at 1st level, you gain proficiency with heavy armor.
Disciple of Life Also starting at 1st level, your healing spells are more effective. Blessed Healer Beginning at 6th level, the healing spells you cast on others heal you as well.
Divine Strike At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your weapon strikes with divine energy. Supreme Healing Starting at 17th level, when you would normally roll one or more dice to restore hit points with a spell, you instead use the highest number possible for each die. Looks pretty balanced. Rollback Post to Revision RollBack.
This first era of promotional foil cards ended in disarray in when a cycle of foil Limited Edition basic lands was aborted midway, already released promo cards were reissued and during the last season starting at October the 14th, Friday Night Magic promo cards Jackal Pup and Quirion Ranger were given out as prize cards instead of Arena League promo cards.
Starting with , the Arena League introduced yet another prize schedule. Seasons were now synchronized with the release of new expert level sets and could be held until the release of the next set. After each season, the 20 players with the most points were rewarded with a randomly chosen alternate art basic land out of a set of five issued for the whole year.
Players with the 10 topmost scores were awarded with an Arena League foil prize card changing with each season. The Unhinged season was special because alternate art Unhinged cards were given out instead of basic lands  and because it partially overlapped with the Champions of Kamigawa season. For unknown reasons, during the Guildpact season in , two prize cards, Castigate and Wee Dragonauts , were given out instead of one. The exact distribution of these cards was left to the tournament organizer. Due to a sorting error, the promotional cards Pouncing Jaguar , Rewind , Skittering Skirge , Duress , and Karn, Silver Golem were additionally distributed in English Urza's Destiny booster packs in place of uncommon cards.
Every Friday in registered shops all over the world, small tournaments with at least eight people are held by the shop owners.
Three participants are given a special foil card which is rotated monthly: the winner of the tournament, the fairest player, and a random participant who has not been rewarded with a prize card already. Starting with , the prize system was slightly changed. Now four copies of the monthly prize card are given out, one to the top-ranking player, one to the second-best player, and two to random participants who have not been rewarded with a prize card already.
Unlike the other cards, the foil alternate art Disenchant was not supposed to be a Friday Night Magic promotional card. It had been printed in , probably at that time supposed to be a future judge reward card like its cousin, the foil alternate art Counterspell. Due to internal conflicts between different departments of Wizards of the Coast, the card was never scheduled, though, and lay dormant for years.
A few copies were leaked to the public at that time, fetching exorbitant prices. In , the prize card for March, a foil Crystalline Sliver , was unexpectedly skipped, allegedly because it had been stolen. The Gateway Organized Play program was a program by Wizards to send promotional cards to players for participating in tournaments at local stores.
Promotional cards were sent to eligible players based on the number of DCI-sanctioned tournaments they participated in. Prerelease Tournaments are held prior to the release of a new Magic set in selected card stores all over the world. Participants play a Sealed Deck tournament, using cards from a number of booster packs from the new expansion plus a few boosters and a tournament pack from preceding expansions of the current expansion block.

Winners of the tournament receive additional boosters and sometimes other Magic products at the discretion of the tournament organizer. In addition, since the release of Tempest , all participants are awarded a promotional prerelease card which is an altered version of a rare card from the new expansion set.
These events are held the weekend next to the street release date of new Magic sets. Like in prerelease tournaments, participants compete in a Sealed Deck environment, utilizing the new cards. A promotional version of a card from the card set is given out to the first 32 participants.
In addition to that, additional booster packs and a life counter are rewarded to the top-ranking players. In other countries, the Release Event card is sometimes given out as participation bonus at additional prerelease tournaments held the weekend after the global prerelease tournaments have taken place.
The Rukh Egg can be considered the first Release Event card, not only commemorating the release of the Eighth Edition card set, but also commemorating the tenth anniversary of Magic itself. Consequently, all Eighth Edition release tournaments were named Global Celebration tournaments and were held in card stores around the world on the weekend before the official release of Eighth Edition. In order to commemorate the release of Russian Magic cards, for the Ninth Edition Release Events in Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus, a Russian Shivan Dragon promotional card was given out to participants instead of the Force of Nature promo issued everywhere else.
There were weekly tournaments.
In , a premium Japanese language Volcanic Hammer was used as a participation prize for the weekly events. The National Championships cards are participation prizes for competing in said tournaments. The Happy Holidays cards are tournament-prohibited, silver-bordered , fun cards in foil. Wizards of the Coast has been giving these out annually at their Holiday party.
People who have been given these cards include members of Wizards internal teams as well as business partners. The Heroes of the Realm cards are black-bordered fun cards that have the "Heroes of the Realm" card back. They are custom cards handed out by the execs at Wizards of the Coast to some of their employers as a reward. The Judge Gift cards were handed out or mailed to judges for judging at magic tournaments and events. All of the cards are foil.

The cards are white-bordered and have a special backside. The first five of them had a coupon on the last page which could be sent to Harper Prism to get a free card. The cards were available in English, Italian, French, Portuguese, and Spanish, with the Spanish set erroneously printed with white borders.
The books were also available in German but were not distributed by HarperPrism and therefore have no cards associated with them. The Italian book cycle was discontinued after the second novel due to poor sales. This has been confirmed to be only an April's Fool joke.
When the novel Agents of Artifice was ordered from a WotC store with a number online, it came with a very short-printed Jace Beleren card.
