I know the devs want to simplify AoO. I assumed it was still in the reaction rules. I’m experimenting with defensive combat rules and this would kill the ability to back up and use reach and counters while fighting a caster. Yes I know that’s a terrible tactic against a Wizard but what if it’s a high lvl ranger that could yell for a Rhino or a stubby Monk with cleric spells?
