I can't find the answer for this in the PHB so I figured I'd ask you swell people here:

What's the purpose of the "MOD + 1/2 LVL" field under Ability Scores section on the character sheet? From my understanding it's not added to your defense scores, so what is it there for?

Ability checks, untrained skill checks, attack rolls with weapons you don't have written down, etc.

Almost all d20 rolls--except for saves--add mod + 1/2 level.
