Edit: As I've been adding more lists in the comments, I'm just adding some link directly to them. Separate posts help define what are old (and possibly fixed) and new issues. And also prevent an insanely long post. Part 2 (Oct 8th) Part 3 (Oct 9th)
Hey, while streaming with a friend last night, I wrote down some issues/bugs/minor things that popped up. I've added links with timestamps to help clarify the issues.
Another player listened in on a conversation I was having. This conversation ended up starting a fight. The character that friend was listening in with still showed the text bubbles during combat. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/762487605?t=1h20m7s (Note the halfling)
Familiars have issues following the player when climbing up ledges, and can end up getting stuck completely. I climbed up a ledge, the spider couldn't follow. After I climbed down again, the spider was stuck in place and had to be resummoned. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/762487605?t=2h39m49s
Clicking on the plus icon to level up, it's possible to accidentally click the confirmation button right after. This instantly ends the level up process. Could be fixed with a simple level up confirmation prompt. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/762487605?t=2h45m8s
Hunters Mark seems to carry over between combat. I killed something a while ago which ended combat. In new combat later on I was able to use it's re-apply option. Not familiar with it in DnD, only googled the 5e description. Could be intentional in the game. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/762487605?t=3h22m10s
On multiple occasions characters ended up stuck in the dialog UI while in combat. It shows the bottom left buttons, but no exit button on the top right. This prevents them from doing anything during their turn, even skip the turn. This was fixed by saving and reloading. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/762487605?t=3h22m53s
In the Owlbear cave, it is possible for a character to climb up a wall (as intended) but end up on the ceiling once done climbing. They might later fall off causing damage and prone. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/762487605?t=5h13m7s Notice Gale climbing up behind my character
Not so much issues as suggestions or notes. - The dice roll in it's current state is somewhat confusing. We eventually understood that the target number is the number after calculations. But, it seems to make more sense to show the actual target, roll the dice, and then show the number of the roll + modifiers. So, show roll + modifiers instead of target - modifiers. This feels more engaging that my numbers are strengthened instead of the target being weakened.
- Possibly give an option to turn off the chance % when doing actions. I understand that it's helpful for those that aren't familiar with DnD, hence why it should be kept as default. But it feels weird when you're used to pen and paper. Maybe (also) an option to only show bonuses such as high ground, disadvantage, threatened.
- There doesn't appear to be any way of seeing another player roll their dice when listening in on conversations. When playing DnD with friends it's fun for everyone to know the target and hoping for, and seeing, the roll result.
- Nothing seems to explain why I can't use a short rest again before taking a long rest, especially with the heal station in the tutorial level. A simple tooltip saying "Usable once(?) per day. Replenishes with a long rest" on the button would do wonders.
- The default keybind for hiding is 'c' which is typically used for the character menu, resulting in doing the wrong thing by habit. Yet 'h' doesn't seem to be bound to anything while it's the first letter of hide. Possible left over from the skill originally being called 'crouch'?
