I like chicken 1/5
By Exelent cite
Purchased content to available in the app 2/5
I purchased content a month ago and it still won’t show up in character creation. I’ve submitted two support tickets with no resolution.
Avoid the TPK, get the app 5/5
Great app that is great on my phone or desktop.
Convenient but doesn’t account for everything 4/5
The auto roll for damage doesn’t always include every possible feature. Easiest example being thrown weapon fighting not applying for throwing daggers or psychic blades from soul knife rogue. (Weirdly it does add from archer fighting style incorrectly?)
Other than that it’s incredibly intuitive and easily the best online character sheet I’ve ever worked with. Just not completely idiot proof. Gotta remember to add certain things to your rolls.
Really makes my life easier, and has fast load times every time, wishing for more updates, but so useful
Pointless switch 1/5
Constant useless notifications, no Update All option and no Download All option. There was no reason to stop developing the previous D&D Beyond app, this is a much worse interface too.
I did not know much about dnd before last year and having this app has helped me in both learning the ins and outs of dnd and keeping track of all my crap
I’m not paying full price again for a digital version of things I already have.
The dice rolling functions are cool, especially how they roll all the necessary dice automatically based on what action you are taking.
Wish it had Tal’dorei reborn 4/5

One complaint 4/5
By White Lillt
This game does not have some of the new things like Fae witch would be good other wise love it!
Excellent Resource 5/5
I love the ease this app has to accessing my resources while playing my DND campaign. Everything all in one place. This app for me is a must use when running a campaign.
One thing I would like to see developed is a place to keep track of my campaigns, along with the maps that I make. The reason I Love this app so much is also the reason why I wish this app had a place to keep my maps and campaigns. Ease of use and keeping everything on one place.
I love this app 5/5
By Keegan Ross
It makes buying and accessing dnd books so easy as well as creating characters.
Effective, straightforward, but a bit perplexing 4/5
By Time Sans
Effective storage of information but it is a bit disappointing that you have to have the files downloaded, I also hope that one day they integrate a vtt directly into dnd beyond instead of dnd beyond into other vtts. Aside from may crazy demands it is a very quality app with plenty of information
It does the job 5/5
By maskimum D0ng
On mobile the app is kinda wonky and the menus get stuck rarely but it functions and does it’s job
Love it….but 4/5
Just need to add offline usage. I want to be able to use the character sheets while I’m offline.
Login issues with auto logging with apple account 3/5
Great app, but wow is the layout unbearable! 4/5
I have started to use Beyond recently l, and while I live a lot of things about this, I can not stand the UI for character sheets and DM campaign set ups.
Lots of potential here to absolutely rock the D&D world, but if you want good advice on what a clean and simple Sheet UI looks like take notes from Prism Scroll.
Keep up the good work beyond team, but if you go the extra mile for the player base I swear we would meet you half way.
never got an experience 1/5
By LPS 0423
it wouldn't even let me sign in in the app and website
Not perfect but really great! 5/5
By Kreed Zeln
Is this app perfect? No but it makes playing dnd so easy for beginners and veterans! All of your bonuses are automatically applied and if you want a paper character sheet then just print one. The easiest way to play dnd.
A fantastic tool 4/5
By Roy Angell
Easily one of the most powerful tools for D&D 5e players. Easy to use, crisp and clean design and very smooth moving from app to PC. Offers a great alternative to keeping all the books and offers the ability to quickly insert solid content into any game setting. Finally allows for players of Adventure League to keep up with latest stats and charter options.
However, it is worth noting that unfortunately some 5e content has been removed, and unfortunately does not sound it will be available anymore in any form. While the update to stats and and such are understandable, it is unfortunate that so much world building content is being left out of reach for anyone who did not previously purchase it.
It works well! 5/5
Everything I have to say about this I can be fitted into two words: good job 👍
Love it but 5/5
This app is amazing I’m just starting out with dnd so this app has been so beneficial to me I do have a question about the eldrich blast spell doing 1d10 plus 20 damage that doesn’t seem correct but otherwise it’s an amazing app
Fantastic All-in-One Source App 5/5
This app is perfect for keeping track of all of your D&D campaign needs. I have all of my characters, campaigns, notes, and sourcebooks all in one convenient place.
Supremely Helpful 5/5
I learned about this app through my DM. It was my first time playing, and he thought it was easier than paper, and already had all the books. It made my transition into D&D much easier, and I now use it throughout all my campaigns.
The Literal Best 5/5
There’s no other way to play dnd without this app. The web version is a gem too. Free character creation and tracking for up to 6 characters. Super useful and makes playing dnd a breeze.
By confused and vexed
Why can’t the app handle character creation and edits without a live connection to your servers? Honestly the biggest reason to not-use this app.
Useful Tool, 'Specially for Newcomers to the Game. 5/5
By Dr. Hattison
A great consolidated place to purchase Dungeons and Dragons books and use built-in tools in-tandem with the books purchased here to streamline the process of making characters, researching items and monsters, and playing the game.
If you one who already has physical copies of the books, be advised, unless there was a code included in the book, you're probably out of luck getting the physical copy onto this platform unless you buy it again. However, with that being said, due to the recent buyout of this system by Wizards of The Coast, it's likely that they will include codes in newer copies of physical books more often, though still it's not a guarantee.
If you're a new player whose never bought a book, this system is definitely a convenience, especially when you purchase your first book(s). Most, if not all, Fifth Edition D&D books are available for purchase, plus some bonus content, including non-book content, like extra character sheet content (such as backgrounds or icon borders) and digital dice of varying flairs.
Of course, there's also a subscription, granting you early access to tools, free content each month, and the ability to create an infinite amount of characters, which is normally limited to 6. There's also a slightly more expensive option which will additionally allow you to share your purchased content with other users which are in a campaign hosted on the platform. If the campaign you're in isn't hosted on the platform, I'd just recommend you get the base level subscription, as it's cheaper, and it is has all of the features you can get except for the one you don't need.
I do have a few gripes. I personally wish that the infinite character pool was a free option, instead of a paid subscription feature. I just can't get enough of making characters, especially since the system streamlines the process to the point of it being a cakewalk. Additionally, I wish some of the features on the website were present on the mobile app, and other features, which are present, made easier. Unless you're using the website, you probably won't ever see the homebrew tab, and probably never made any. Even if you did, it's inconvenient that you can't view them on the app, unless a character is using it, and you have to go to the website otherwise.
Still, great app nonetheless, and one of the most useful tools for D&D, especially when you're just starting out.
My recommendation for new players, save up your money for about $30, then buy the Player's Handbook.
Can’t Log In 2/5
An imperfect yet useful tool but the newest update now won’t let me log in.
Amazing, helpful, and works great! 5/5
I was very hesitant about jumping into the digital world after stubbornly being a pencil and paper player for so long. But it’s so good! It hasn’t hampered my play at all.
It’s actually helping me organize my stuff a lot better, keep track of my items and inventory, attunement slots, and everything. And multiclassing? So easy!! I don’t need to worry about figuring out how many spell slots are for what class!
If there was one critique it would be that the artificer infusions are pretty clunky. And they only work if you set them up on a browser and not on the app.
But in general, it’s wonderful!
It makes it easier for the DM and the players
Amazing, but 5/5
By TG Crowd
Making a home brew seems to not be an option found out how to do it but won’t let me please add this option
Three Thumbs up! 4/5
Great app that just keeps getting better with new features, etc. Sometimes a bit buggy (crashes a little more often than I’d like), but overall a terrific experience that makes the bookkeeping parts of D&D quicker and easier. Delighted that you are part of WoTC now and look forward to a great user experience.
Minor Issues Regarding App 3/5
It’s not bad. There seems to be some issues viewing it on an iPhone 13 Pro. Like the text on the screen doesn’t want to line up correctly.
I would take screenshots if I could, but there seems to be a mix up regarding login that I can’t seem to get around.
Wish I’d read the reviews 3/5
So, I paid for the subscription thinking that unlocked the character creation stuff. I know. My bad for just assuming. But there’s zero tangible benefit to paying for the subscription unless your whole group is using the app and you’re committed to buying all the books again for a higher cost than the physical book is on Amazon.
Dice acting up again. 3/5
Dice are broken.
Solid All-in-One D&D Reference 5/5
This app gives you a lot:
- D&D source material (Player’s Handbook, Monster Manual, etc.)
- Lists of topics w/ filters (Feats, Spells, Classes, etc.)
- Campaigns you’re in
- Characters you’ve created
- Lots of usability
- Downloadable content (usable offline)
- Easy to navigate
- Randomly doesn’t load/work
- No tab feature (can’t look at more than one spell at a time, for example)
- Certain features from the website aren’t available (e.g. Encounter Builder)
Overall, great app, and perfect for a Player (5/5). For a DM, not nearly as good as a laptop, but good enough in a pinch, especially with offline capabilities (4/5).
The app is great just wish 5/5
By Submit a movie app review
The app is great just wish it had all the functions and looks of the web interface but even with out at this is the best app around for D&D fun !
Love this app 5/5
Ever since I saw Critical Role using D&D Beyond, I started using it. Since using it, it’s the only thing I use now for my character sheets and sourcebooks. Great app and a wonderful tool to have for playing.
The ultimate D&D database 5/5
This app is absolutely amazing. It has everything you need to play and enjoy D&D. It has great ways to search and filter and the app looks great and works without a hitch. Thank you so much for all your hard work on this amazing app.
Only two minor issues. First there should be a way to be able to download parts of content that you already own. For example I own the Owlin race but I don’t want to have to download all of Strixhaven just to see that one thing. Second, it would be nice if we could save our filters for later instead of remaking them every time we need to find something different.
Best 5e experience in an app 4/5
This app tries and nearly dose it all flawlessly. Ive noticed players using this app to track their character have a better learning curve, and faster turns using build in rolls for those who know how to play. It’s useful throughout.
The creating and editing characters is overly clunky using a web plug-in in place of the app’s own UI.
Ease of use is built into the the rest of the app. With its useful home buttons, to search features and filters when you need them.
I highly recommend this app for all 5e play.
The dice are not working 1/5
The dice system is down and has been for since the update. It’s really screwing my team over.
Great App 4/5
The app is great, I’ve only rated it 4 stars since the website tools are so much more robust. If encounters etc were added to the app this would be incredible for DMs. For now it’s a great tool for players, and definitely helped my new players with character creation. Thank you and keep up the great work.
Dice Roller issues 1/5
While using my I pad pro….got up two days ago and 3 characters dice roller wouldn’t function for the characters except in the online rpg sheet….but the others did ……re installed the app reset the I pad….nothing changes…..stated a new character….then the same …no function with the dice roller……
LOVE THIS APP! Periodt! 5/5
This makes our sessions so smooth, leveling up has never been easier!
Good for new players and returning heroes 5/5
My gf is new to dungeons and dragons, and having spells and items a click away, and the digital dice for the first session really helped to explain modifiers and saving throws in a way that was tactile. Having the app open on the phone and the desktop during our gameplay makes finding actions and ideas organic and plain to understand. I’d highly recommend the app, obviously, lol.
It’s got amazing features but is unusable for most people 2/5
This would be an amazing resource for most people but locking things like player features and races behind pay walls really prevents the average person from being able to make use of the things this app does well, I’m not paying 30$ to be able to pick the war forged race for my character, when I can just get the stats off google for free
Good, need more customization 3/5
By Steve E Davis
It is really nice for players in campaigns. Needs the customization for custom feats and racial traits. This just a review from the players side of the app.
so good!! 5/5
super convenient way to keep track of my characters!!! 10/10 would recommend!!!! :))
Could the search options be better? 5/5
By DM Aquawalung
I feel the search options should be more than what they are… the dnd tools web site had a really good thing going on. But was over the boarder of illegal. They should be able to give a glimpse of what you are looking for and give prices for the purchase of the book.
