Do you only get one attack with Mobile feat

Hello I play DND 5e I had a question so I was in a game and I just got the feat mobile so I go up to the enemy and I hit him like a wrecking ball (Flame tongue Greatsword infused into my body which is only for flavor reasons) so my question is do u get more attack if I have extra attack or am I only allowed to take one attack action cause it doesn’t state that in the feat You are exceptionally speedy and agile. You gain the following benefits: Mobilr – Your speed increases by 10 feet. – When you use the Dash action, difficult terrain doesn’t cost you extra movement on that turn. – When you make a melee attack against a creature, you don’t provoke opportunity attacks from that creature for the rest of the turn, whether you hit or not

Can a character with the Polearm Master feat make an opportunity attack against an invisible creature that enters their reach?

The second benefit of the Polearm Master feat (PHB, p. 168) says:

While you are wielding a glaive, halberd, pike, quarterstaff, or spear, other creatures provoke an opportunity attack from you when they enter your reach.

The regular rules on opportunity attacks state:

You can make an opportunity attack when a hostile creature that you can see moves out of your reach. To make the opportunity attack, you use your reaction to make one melee attack against the provoking creature. The attack occurs right before the creature leaves your reach.

Obviously, Polearm Master lets you use your reaction to make an opportunity attack when a creature enters your reach, in addition to the opportunity attack any character can make when a creature leaves their reach. However, does the opportunity attack from Polearm Master follow the same restriction on needing to see the creature, or can this attack be made even without seeing the creature that enters its reach?

If an invisible creature enters the reach of a character with the Polearm Master feat, can the character make an opportunity attack against that creature?

What happens when a witch takes the Improved Familiar feat?

The Improved Familiar feat was designed before the Witch existed, and mainly for Wizard. I have a Witch that has more than 10 lvl1 spells and more than 3 spells of lvl 2 and 3, and I’m wondering if the Improved Familiar feat is really a good idea at this point.

My question about this revolves around the fact that a witch’s familiar is the one that knows the witch’s spells, and not the witch herself. I already know that, as for the wizard, taking this feat means you don’t have to pay the ritual money to change familiars, but nowhere have I found anything clear and definite about the spells.

Does the new familiar know all of the spells of the basic one? Do you consider it to be a normal replacement familiar (2 spells of each lvl)? Something in between?

Does the Eldritch Knight need the Warcaster feat to cast spells when using 2h or sword/shield?

Many of the spells that an Eldritch Knight can cast have a somatic component. If I am playing as an Eldritch Knight with a two-handed sword or weapon/shield combo, would I require the Warcaster feat?

The way I see it is that the Warcaster feat’s intention was to allow those with two-handed weapons, dual wielding or sword/shield setup to cast spells, meaning that by default, Eldritch Knights shouldn’t be able to cast spells with somatic components without the feat.

Does the Sharpshooter feat work on spells cast through a ranged weapon being used as a spellcasting focus?

I’m asking as a player:

Does the Sharpshooter feat’s 3rd clause (-5/+10) work on spells cast through a ranged weapon being used as a spellcasting focus?

Specifically, does the Sharpshooter feat work with spells cast through a Warlock’s Improved Pact Weapon shortbow/longbow/crossbow options?

How does the Sharpshooter Feat interact with Ranger’s Volley

This question follows from this one: Is the Hunter ranger’s Volley feature considered a single attack or multiple attacks?

The Sharpshooter feat reads in part:

  • Before you make an attack with a ranged weapon that you are proficient with, you can choose to take a -5 penalty to the attack roll. If the attack hits, you add +10 to the attack’s damage.

Given the fact that the Hunter/Ranger’s Volley is a single attack, how does the Sharpshooter feat interact with it?

Does this mean that the Ranger:

  1. Takes -5 to each attack roll and adds +10 damage to each hit creature.

  2. Takes -5 to ONE attack roll and adds +10 to the associated damage roll.

… or even:

  1. Takes -5 to ONE attack roll and adds +10 to ALL damage rolls.

  2. Takes -5 to ALL attack rolls and adds +10 to ONE damage roll.

Do ability-boosting items or spells count for meeting feat prerequisites?

Do ability-boosting items or spells count for meeting feat prerequisites? I always reckoned that they do not. But now I wonder.

For example, the text for Gloves of Dexterity is

They add to the wearer’s Dexterity score in the form of an enhancement bonus

So it comes down to the question: does a bonus become part of the score itself? This seems logical in the case of an inherent bonus. The inherent bonus is just a means of keeping track of permanent magical boosting e.g. via wish spells. This kind of boost is limited to 5 points. As a DM I would judge that boosting an ability score via wish spells does count for meeting prerequisites for feats. But, if so: What is the difference to an enhancement bonus?

Ok, it may not be permanent. But there are rules what happens if you no longer meet prerequisites: the feat ceases functioning until you meet the prerequisites again.

This kind of ruling would even mean you could cast a boost spell before leveling up to meet prerequisites, take a feat and this feat only works while you have enough active boosts.

So my question: Do ability boosting items or spells count for meeting prerequisites for feats?

Ranger with Practice Caster Feat

A PHB Ranger has access to spells starting at level 4 with caster level of 1/2. So for a level 4 Ranger we have a caster level of 2.

Lets say this Ranger takes the feat Practiced Caster at level 6. Practiced Caster gives 4 caster levels to the Ranger up to his own hit dice.

Am I right in assuming that this lvl 6 Ranger is also a caster of level 6 and that grants him the spells per day of a level 12 Ranger?
