Charactermancer Level Up Feedback Thread

Greetings! Here's the feedback thread for the Charactermancer Level Up ! Please read the Known Issues before posting, in case the issue you're encountering has already been logged. Known Issues (Updated Jan 15 2019) Charactermancer Level Up supports the SRD and PHB (with some notes below) and the Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica. As announced in the Roadmap , Xanathar's Guide to Everything will be supported very shortly. We are now actively working on adding Volo's and Mordenkainen's to the Charactermancer. When you make a selection and click "Next," the selection is saved. If you go back and change the selection, it won't apply the change to. You'll have to exit out of the Charactermancer Level Up, selecting "Discard and Exit," and relaunch it to start over and make your new choice. If you level up a character and multiclass, then re-run the Charactermancer Level 1, the multiclass won't be removed completely. Its features and hit points will be removed, but Charactermancer Level Up will think you have the additional class for purposes of leveling. In the sheet's settings (gear icon), uncheck the additional classes before running Level Up. Selecting class features will not disable previous/current choices. Nothing will prevent you from selecting the same Fighting Style twice, for example. Choosing the same feature twice should have no effect on the sheet. You cannot replace class features (example: Eldritch Invocations, monk elemental disciplines) when leveling up. Previously chosen expertise proficiencies aren’t grayed out. Spell slots will not update on level up. You can temporarily fix this through the sheet settings (gear icon) by adding Spell Slot Modifiers.  (Fixed Jan 10) When multiclassing with more than one spellcasting class, the spell selector does not know which class uses which spell. Double check the spellcasting ability and class in the character sheet for each spell by going to the Spells tab and clicking the gear icon next to the spell. This also sometimes results in duplicate spells, such as when selecting a spell that you already get (like a domain spell) as a spell from the other spellcasting class. Hit points per level are not accounted for when calculating hp for hill dwarves and similar features that add hit points per level. Pre-requisites do not validate (except for level requirements on Eldritch Invocations and monk Elemental Disciplines) The optional rule Feats is not supported. However, you can drag and drop feats from the compendium onto your character sheet after completing the Charactermancer. Note that, for now, doing so doesn't mechanically change your character sheet; it just adds the item to your Features list on the character sheet. Level caps on classes haven't been implemented; you can have 20 levels in each class. The Review slide is not complete and a more informative version is coming in a future update. Leveling up a custom class is not supported. In addition, adding a multiclass to a custom class is not supported. If you don't own the Player's Handbook and only have access to the SRD, some class and racial features won't be applied by Level Up. While we think we've found all of them, if you find something that isn't being applied and isn't in the Known Issues lists, please comment in this thread with it, including whether you own the PHB or not. If your character sheet still has the default values of "10" in the ability scores, ability score increases will break. Fix this by entering an ability score in the character sheet (even if that value is "10"). (Fixed Jan 10) After multiclassing, rolling your hit dice for the additional classes will always roll a "d0." While waiting for the fix, please roll manually.  (Fixed Jan 10) Class-Specific Known Issues (Updated Jan 8 2019) Barbarian : Brutal Critical will not modify your attack rolls. Druid:  Circle of the Land : When selecting your circle spells at later levels, it will not remember your previous choice for land type and you will have to reselect it. Fighter:  Champion : Improved Critical and Superior Critical will not modify your attack rolls. Warlock:  Eldritch Invocations : Agonizing Blast, Eldritch Spear, Repelling Blast will not modify the spell roll.  Divine Spellcasters : The number of spells you can select and therefore prepare may be inaccurate due to domain and oath spells. You can drag and drop spells onto your character sheet after finishing to add them to the spells you might prepare after a long rest. Rogue: Expertise is not being applied to Thieves' Tools in either the Charactermancer Creator or Level Up. You can fix this after finishing Charactermancer by adding it to your tool proficiencies, clicking the gear icon next to it, and selecting "Expertise" for the proficiency level. (Fixed Jan 10)

Reported Elsewhere : Brian  said: As subject line [ "Charactermancer D&D 5e - Feats tab greyed out at level up for L4." ]. Come Level 4 I am unable to pick a Feat. Is there a global setting I missed for this optional rule?  Cheers Brian PS - I have PHB and Pro membership. This is addressed above, but I have copied this post here so I could close the original thread: The optional rule Feats is not supported. However, you can drag and drop feats from the compendium onto your character sheet after completing the Charactermancer. Note that, for now, doing so doesn't mechanically change your character sheet; it just adds the item to your Features list on the character sheet.

All bugs below were found with the following setup  toon started as level 1 tiefling bard and then adding 6 bard and 2 warlock, made a level 1 bard with the updated creator and then went back in to level it up to 6 bard Spells that you know from  a racial trait are added to the known spell (good for being able to use them) You cant learn the spell if you are a spell caster (bad since you dont actually know the spell from  racial  trait ) aka tefling warlock wanting  Hellish Rebuke. Also: Not sure if just part of multi class leveling up at the same time or a bug with warlocks in general but Eldritch Invocations are not correctly checking p rerequisites, I can take  Book of Ancient Secrets even though i don't have  Pact of the Tome as a level 2 warlock.  There is a lot more eldritch invocations i can take even though i cant have them. Also: Spell slot calculations are broken, on leveling up for 1 to 8 I should have 3 bard cantrips and 2 warlock cantrips total. the level up system  lets me keep the ones I took at level 1 and and 5 more! Not sure if this is the same as the multi class spell issue in the main post, but my bard warlock is letting me take 5 new bard spells on this level up (correct) and 5 warlock spells (incorrect, should be 3 at level 2) will post more bugs when i find them! Thanks! Tom

More bugs! Found when leveling above toon to 14 lore bard 6 GOO warlock The drop down for expertise show the skills that i previously took for expertise twice. When doing a big jump like this magical secrets shows spells of the max level you can cast, not the spell limit that you would have for magical secrets. So my secrets for 10 and 14 both let me select 10th level spells. Bard has requires the spell to be a spell you could cast at that level. so 6th (lore) should be limited to 3rd. 10th (all bards) should be limited to 5th. 14th (all bards) should be limited to 7th. 18th (all bards) should be limited to 9th.  The cantrip level up bug in my previous post did not happen on this level up so it must just be from level 1. will post more bugs when i find them! Thanks! Tom

Hi, Tom! Thanks for the bug reports! The spell slots not being updated  and the prerequisites not validating are both in the Known Issues list, but it's good to know they're still issues even after yesterday's hotfix.  I'll be sure to note the issues with multiclass spellcasting. Reworking the spell selector to better support multiple spell sources (classes, races, backgrounds) is something scheduled for the next major work on the Charactermancer, but it probably won't be completed until after Xanathar's goes out.

Please see notes in top post above: Charactermancer Level Up supports the SRD and PHB (with some notes below) and the Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica. As announced in the  Roadmap , Xanathar's Guide to Everything will be supported very shortly. We are now actively working on adding Volo's and Mordenkainen's to the Charactermancer. The only thing you should see outside of the PHB (and SRD) is Ravnica. Is that a book you own? If so and options from it are not appearing, let us know.

Was playing with leveling up a paladin. I went straight from Level 1 to 8 and was told I could select 7 new spells, after selecting this number then the rest of the spells were grayed out. Paladins should have the full spell list available, and be able to prepare (1/2 level + Cha mod) spells plus domain spells.

Hi, Jethro! Thanks for your feedback. With prepared spellcasters (paladins, druids, clerics-- anything with access to the full spell list), we advise that you select the spells you have prepared for the first day you use that spellcaster, and then drag/drop any additional spells as you go through your adventures. If you drag every single spell available onto your character sheet, it will bog down your game. So for performance reasons, we made the decision when first coding the Charactermancer to set it up to prepare some of your spells, and of course you can always add more through drag-and-drop.

Hi, everyone! We just pushed a hotfix live that fixes some small, but important issues: Thieves' Tools and Sleight of Hand can now get expertise correctly. Eldritch Knight and Arcane Trickster now update spell slots properly multiclass spell slots now update properly multiclass hit dice no longer roll d0. starting Level Up with default 10 in attributes will no longer break ability score increases I've updated the Known Issues list as well.

Found a bug trying to level up a Fighter Battle Master to level 20. It didn't pick up when extra manuvers came in to play. And also when picking backround of Pirate it didn't let me pick a proficency. It also didn't pick up the extra superiority dice or the change in the die type d8,d10,d12 when it came up.

My group found this weird thing out when multiclassing. We leveled up a multi fighter/barbarian. only leveling up the fighter level. it appeared to my group member that it was unleveling his barbarian, to increase his fighter. When we applied changes, all was fine. however, it still appeared as if it is something weird going on.

Hello, I don't see the Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica features, like the new Race, is it normal ?

Hi, Kanard! You will only see Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica features if you own the Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica expansion, or if your GM owns it and has turned on compendium sharing. Do either of those apply? If you do own GGTR and don't see the Ravnica races, please comment back here so we can try to troubleshoot the issue.

Hi, all! We've updated the Charactermancer Creator and Level Up today to support Xanathar's Guide to Everything. The release notes are  here .
1547597712
so when i make a multi class character it doesnt separate the 2 classes for hit dice heals. It just has the number of levels total. It does ask you which you want to use but it doesnt tell you how many you have of each
So any idea on how long till volvos is in the Charactermancer?
