I am currently having difficulty drafting an appropriate question for the following scneario:
I have a player that wants to swap out the spellcasting ability for Warlocks in D&D 5e from Cha to Int. I am not looking for an opinion or ruling on whether that should be allowed, but rather looking for a list of things that would be affected by such a change. Also beneficial in an answer would be potential benefits or negatives of implementing this.
What are the community rules on asking about homebrew mechanics?
Looking at this very similar question, it seems that questions limited to a single mechanic are permitted, but would do better by being one part of a multi-part question. Evaluations of full concepts, classes, races, etc are slightly more complicated to keep on topic.
What is the recommended way to phrase such questions? (feel free to use my case above as an example, or another case you have encountered)
Should they be phrased as seeking advice? Would that not result in primarily opinion based answers when talking about homebrew? Should they be phrased asking for pros and cons or similar, and leave the decision-making/opinion out of both answer and question?
Can you recommend a good way to phrase my question?
