    Default Re: Doing some 5e homebrewing, looking to poach from 4e

    Went through ranger powers and features to about level 13. Poach list:

    Prime Shot: position based bonuses to attacks.
    ERanger: bonus attack when you hit (sort of built in to 5e DW)
    Beast Mastery: Other than companion, not sure what to poach.

    The "Familiar" might lock the Ranger into having a pet. Maybe I need to make Familiar less specific to having a pet? Would also spread Wizard design around.

    Attacks: More taps is common.
    Support for (a) two light weapons, (b) two heavier weapons, (c) a projectile weapon, (d) a melee and thrown weapon, (e) throwing weapons.

    Sure Shot: Super accurate attacks with a bow.
    Skirmishing Stance: Benefits for moving around.

    Beast powers: Talents that grant your companion advantages.

    Invigorating Stride: Burn HD to self heal in combat?

    Stalker's Mist: Mist that blocks enemy vision

    Yield Ground: Get hit, retreat.

    Disruptive Strike: Ally gets hit, get an attack with a chance to force a miss.

    Avenging Charge: Higher damage version of Disruptive Strike, doesn't disrupt.

    Snarling Wolf Stance: When hit or missed, you can make a counter attack and shift away.

    Spitting Cobra Stance: Fire a bow shot as a reaction at foes who move closer.

    Leaf Wall: Ally-friendly concealment, combat advantage granting

    Arrow of the Savior: Make a falling target not fall (convert to climbing or to ledge)

    Healing Herbs (heal and provide poison saving throw)

    Stealthy Escape (reroll a failed stealth check with a bonus)

    Weave through the Fray (reaction to an enemy moving nearby -- move away)

    Spray of Arrows (clost blast of arrow attacks)

    Thousand Arrow Awareness ("overwatch" arrow attacks with reactions)

    Root Gate (use roots to create a short-range two-location teleportation conduit)

    off-hand diversion (boosted bonus action off-hand attacks, this one makes the foe grant CA)
