## What are all DND dice used for?

All of the polyhedral dice are widely used. For example, the d4, d6, d8, and d10 are used for the hit dice of various character classes. Twenty sided dice are used for attack rolls and saving throws. All dice, except the d20, are needed to roll the damage for various weapons.

## How the dice work in DND?

You generate a number between 1 and 100 by rolling two different ten-sided dice numbered from 0 to 9. One die (designated before you roll) gives the tens digit, and the other gives the ones digit. If you roll a 7 and a 1, for example, the number rolled is 71. Two 0s represent 100.

## Why does a d10 have a 0?

The one with two digits is just telling you the tens digit, and the one with one digit is the ones digit. If you’re rolling only that die with 0, 10, 20, etc., then a 10 = a 1 and the 00 = a 10. 0 or 00 on a d10 just means the highest number.

## How is HP DND calculated?

At first level, you calculate your hit points by adding your constitution modifier to the highest possible total of your class’s assigned hit die. (E.g. if you’re a level one cleric with a constitution modifier of +3, then your hit point maximum with be 11.)

## How many sets of dice should a DM have?

The dice set you linked to should have enough dice to make that happen. As a player and a DM I use four sets of distinct dice. Distinct sets can help you in swarm fights of lots of low damage so you match the d20 with the same set damage die like the d6 or d8.

## What are 10 sided dice used for?

10 Sided D10 Dice
