Fighter Powers Chart – # of Uses

Comparison Considerations

Comparing Psi Warrior, Battle Master, Rune Knight, and Arcane Archer

Only Fighter subdomains with multiple uses of a limited slate of powers

Abilities differ in power levels

Hard to account for but attempted to adjust for some of them

Versatility of BM and AA not accounted for but should be kept in mind

BM DPR is still fantastic and possibly superior due to Precision Shot et al.

Build-dependent

Eldritch Knight somewhat similar but ultimately excluded

Power of spell levels too complex for this chart

Range adds value to AA but not accounted for

No reason other archetypes can’t take archery

Key

PW – proficiency x2/day + 1x/short rest + powers/day + powers/short rest

BM – Maneuvers 4x/short rest, + 1x at 7th, +1x at 15th, + 1/battle with Relentless

RK –  Runes variable-x/day + powers/day 

AA – Shots 2x/short rest + 1x/battle with Ever-Ready Shot

Best, Worst, New consideration
