View Full Version : D&D 5e/Next A Very Brief Guide to Changing 1st Level Cleric Domain Features

Cleric Domain 1st level features and proficiencies are balanced to have equal power from domain to domain. In looking at the PHB domains plus the Arcana Domain, we can assign each domain a value of 5 feature points.

Some features are more powerful than others and so may cost more points. Some features could cost less than a point, such as a single language proficiency or limited weapon proficiencies.

The Trickster Domain feature is weirdly underpowered for its point cost; maybe because it lasts an hour?

When designing new features, try to balance their power level with the point levels given for existing domains.

Feature points correlate as follows:

1 point

2 points

3 points

5 points

2 languages

1 cantrip

Warding Flare

Blessing of the Trickster

1 skill

1 skill w/ expertise

Disciple of Life

martial weapons

heavy armor

Wrath of the Storm

War Priest
