Selected in last month’s Patreon Poll as the next 5e race handbook to receive an update, I’ve given the Bugbear Handbook the usual post-Tasha’s updates.
I’m currently playing a bugbear, which I wrote about previously, and while it’s a really fun race it can also be frustrating at times. Surprise Attack is excellent but unreliable, and Long-Limbed can be tactically useful but easy to forget. They also have one of the wackiest religions outside of the Kuo-Toa, so go give that a read.
I made a bunch of improvements to the text for the Default Rules, but the only rating change I made was to raise Warlock from 1-star/red to 2-stars/orange since Surprise Attack works so well with Eldritch Blast.
