What Is Inspiring Leader 5e?
If your character is the charismatic type, always ready with a rousing speech to boost the morale of your party, then the Inspiring Leader feat is for you. This feat allows you to inspire your companions, bolstering their resolve and granting them temporary hit points. So, ready your voice, it’s time to inspire!
How Does Inspiring Leader Work?
The Inspiring Leader feat allows your character to inspire others through a powerful speech. This feat allows you to spend 10 minutes inspiring your companions, shoring up their resolve to fight. The number of temporary hit points granted equals your level + your Charisma modifier. This feat is a fantastic way to provide a buffer of hit points for your party before a big fight.
Is Inspiring Leader Good?
In our 5e Feats Tier List, Inspiring Leader was given a B Tier rating, making it a niche feat that can improve some builds in D&D 5e.
There are plenty of ways to get temp hit points, but this is free and can be repeated every short or long rest. The fact that it takes into account your level plus Charisma modifier means that this feat will scale quite well as you level up. Even if you took this feat at 1st level and had a +4 to Charisma after character creation, this would still dish our 5 temp hit points to each party member plus you. If you have four party members, that’s 20 hit points, which is more than a 2nd-level aid can provide.
