Updates to the Elemental Evil Player’s Companion and Princes of the Apocalypse are the focus of this month’s Sage Advice.


Among the new spells in Xanathar’s Guide to Everything are some that originally appeared in Princes of the Apocalypse and the Elemental Evil Player’s Companion, an online supplement. When adding the spells to Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, we made refinements. Those changes are reflected in the following two PDFs:

Princes of the Apocalypse Errata

Elemental Evil Player’s Companion

Sage Advice Compendium

Rules questions and answers are gathered in the Sage Advice Compendium, which collects official rules answers in one PDF. You can see which sections of the compendium are the most recent by looking for any paragraph in a shaded box. The compendium hasn’t been updated this month.

If you have a D&D rules question, please reach me on Twitter (@JeremyECrawford), where I answer questions every week. Many of those answers eventually end up in the Sage Advice Compendium.
