I'm not normally an optimizer, but my group is switching from Pathfinder to 5e, at least temporarily.
My plan for the character in Pathfinder was to become an Arcane Archer (prestige class) at level 10. There are obviously no prestige classes in 5e, so I want to plan out the initial build and feats to at least come close to a Pathfinder Arcane Archer. We'll be starting 5e at our current Pathfinder level, which is 6.
For role-play quasi-continuity, I've chosen Half-Elf as my race (+2 charisma, crossbow proficiency) for my Sorcerer.
Given those choices for race, class, and preferred weapon, what is the best ability distribution and feat plan for a 27-point-buy character?
For instance, one of the specific quandaries I have is whether to focus on Dex (to hit) or Charisma (additional damage in the Draconic Bloodline origin)
