    Default Unearthed arcana-worth it?

    Is there anything in unearthed arcana that isn't in the srd? Is it worth buying?

    Some small parts (some of the sidebars) are not in the SRD. It would not be worth getting just for those.

    I like many of the ideas in UA, but most of the good ones are already in the SRD.

    If Fractional BAB/Saves, Alternate Class Features, Traits, Flaws, and Racial Paragon classes are on the SRD, then not really, no.

    Whatever can you do without a sidebar suggesting that you give druids a domain for free?

    Penny; AFAIK the onlly thing missing from the srd (of the ones you mentioned) are the fractional saves since they are sidebar.
