So, I'd never played a barbarian before, and I am a very casual gamer. The sort of gamer who is generally okay letting the other people at the table and the GM check my character sheet. Some people have to have the GM check their sheet because they try to cheat-with-math. Me? I wouldn't know HOW to cheat. I'm one step above the player who lets the GM make and level up their character for them. It's because I have a hard time with the rules. Individually I understand them, but once modifiers start getting stacked I tend to get confused. e.g. Did I already add that bonus? Do I add the bonus or modify the ability for that other bonus first? Oh wait, is this a 2-handed weapon? Am I using my off-hand to attack?...etc.
So I am happy to announce that I have finally, after 6 levels, figured out all my damage modifiers for my barbarian. I had to reread the rules about four or five times but I think I've finally got it.
