Just getting back into D&D after a 20-25yr break (aside from ~10 rounds on the starter set 2-3yrs ago.) This is essentially my first rolled character in 20ish years. I am joining a weekly group whose campaign started in Dec last year - the DM boosted me up to level 6 so that I am around the same level as they are. I officially start playing with this character this coming Wednesday night, so I only have a couple of days left to make changes. Would love to know your thoughts and any feedback before I have to commit.
Except the race, looks EXACTLY like how I would make an arcane trickster. That race is good, but I like others flavor wise. In terms of optimization, the build is very good.
Awesome, I made two alternate builds for this character
1. I changed the variant to Glasya, and removed my Hat of Disguise and grabbed a Headband of Intellect, so I was able to dump the INT to 8 and move some points over to WIS and CHA. I figured this could be helpful to increase my odds a bit for any deception checks. https://ddb.ac/characters/15405321/OQyTWk
The High Elven cantrip at level 1 is super useful to get you started with your Booming Blade. I went for Fey Teleportation feat at level 8 to gain once per rest Misty Step. Since as an arcane trickster your spells are on the wizard list and you “learn” the spell that is one more non illusion/enchantment spell to add to you spell slots after first use.
