A cool feat, if a little clunky. This Mission Impossible style feat is solid for infiltration, though there are spells that are similarly as effective. The fact that it is a half-feat certainly makes up for it a bit, but it’s questionable to choose a feat that a spell like Invisibility can accomplish quite easily, if in a different manner.

Which 5e Classes Make the Most of Actor?

The color code below has been implemented to help you identify, at a glance, how good the Actor 5e feat is for a specific class/subclass.

  • Red isn’t going to contribute to the effectiveness of your character build at all
  • Orange Situationally good, but a below-average option otherwise
  • Green is a good option
  • Blue is a great option, you should strongly consider this option for your character
  • Sky Blue is an amazing option. If you do not take this option your character would not be optimized

Rogue: Can come in really handy in infiltration missions and pairs well with the Assassin.

Warlock: This is a nifty half-feat to pick up if you are going to be leaning into the Mask of Many Faces invocation. Being able to mimic the voice of the person you are impersonating, will make your disguise that much more effective. Plus, you get advantage on your CHA checks to remain undercover.
