To people who have played both systems, which one do you think is a better system? Dungeons & Dragons is much more popular than other systems so far, but it seems like the current edition of Pathfinder has some interesting mechanics I want to see done in Dungeons & Dragons as well.
Pathfinder 2e appears better for character customization due to the greater modularity of character advancement where you usually have to select one or two feats each level up depending on your class and ancestry. In addition the ancestry of your character continues to give you features due to the feats system where as in D&D your race only gives new features up to fifth level. Dungeons & Dragons fifth edition only has feats as an optional system, it requires you to sacrifice an ability score increase, and in addition there are feats of vast differences in power lumped under the same category, so picking a certain feat may not be a good idea. The feats in Pathfinder 2e are in different categories that can only be taken in the correct category, so they’re not competing against every feat in the game like D&D 5e.
- Dungeons & Dragons 5e
- Pathfinder Second Edition
Message to forum developers, I intended to put this thread in “Systems & Games” because I thought it fit better, but I can’t do the because the software requires me to add a tag to this thread when there’s no tags to select in that category.
