DnDAL and PHB Errata

The recently released Player’s Handbook errata may have affected some of your Adventurers League characters. In general the errata includes mostly clarifications rather than complete changes.

The Adventurers League does not generally support rebuilding characters above 4th-level, but what if those changes result in the unlikely event that the errata made your character illegal? In such a case, in the presence of your DM, you should make the minimal changes necessary to make your character conform to the rules. So for example, if your character is currently a 12th-level monk who chose eternal mountain defense as your 11th-level tradition feature you might note that the errata changed the minimum level requirement for that feature to 17th-level and so your character is illegal. The minimum change would be to select a different, legal feature; for example flames of the phoenix. The Adventurers League would not allow you to instead rebuild your character to have 12 levels of fighter, as that is not the minimum change necessary to make your character legal.

Another example: if you were a bard/warlock and had previously been using your total character level to select your invocations, the rules have been clarified that only your total warlock level is used. If you have an invocation with a level requirement that is higher than your warlock level allows, you must make the minimal change of selecting a legal invocation, not converting your warlock levels to bard (or vice versa).

If your character was affected by the errata so that it is less optimal, but still legal, you are not granted a rebuild. So for example: if you were a sorcerer that had been using elemental affinity and twinned spell to get extra scorching rays and applying the extra damage to every bolt, the errata clarifies that the elemental affinity is only added to one damage roll (not all three) and you cannot twin scorching ray because it can target multiple foes. This clarification does not make your character illegal, and so no rebuild is warranted.

Thank you for playing in the Adventurers League and Good Gaming!
