On The Hunt: Alternate Favored Enemy

I enjoy the ranger’s new take on favored enemy, but still want the flavor of older versions.  So, I propose this house rule for variant favored enemies.  While I ready myself for the week ahead, here’s a home rule to alter the Ranger in a way that’s more thematic while keeping them balanced against other classes through a situational bonus.

Alternate Favored Enemy – You gain advantage against a target that falls under your favored enemy list. After making this attack, this target cannot be selected for at least 24 hours. You may designate a favored enemy target as many times as your Wisdom modifier before taking a Short Rest or Long Rest.

To give credit where credit is due, this was a mix of my own idea (found in my House Rules page on the original tumblr site, as well as Samuel from the Homebrew D&D 5th Edition facebook group.)  Image is from Witcher III: Wild Hunt
