The Hoodlum Rogue looks mean ! 

They are all interesting new 'specializations' (only the Paladin one left me indifferent and the Hoodlum seems overpowered).

This looks very interesting, but I have some questions about how the features will work given how are written:

Fighter, Rousing Shout. Is this tied to a resource?

Wizard, Spell Shield. Is this tied to a resource?

Ranger, Battle Focus. Does this use an action/bonus action? Is it tied to a resource? What is the damage value?

Sorcerer, Spirit Visage & Vengeful Spirits. Are these tied to resources?

Barbarian, Draconic Wrath/Blessing. What are the damage values? And is the breath tied to a resource?

Good to know.

I was a bit skeptical to getting another Ranger without archetype spells, but this certainly compensates for it. The burst potential is going to be insane. I do feel bad for the Spellblade though, since they weren't having a great time to begin with and now a half-caster can get Extra Attack (2).
