Sentinel DnD 5E Feat

Hiya adventurers of all styles and sizes! welcome to my weblog and thanks a lot for clicked on forty eighth episode of our dnd 5e feats collection. Right this moment we’re going to be having a look at one of the common feats within the sport. Right this moment we’re taking a look at dnd 5e sentinel feat. Now that is principally utilized in mixture with polearm grasp feat 5e and a few DMs allowed some don’t, i’ll get into why there’s just a little little bit of controversy over it just a little bit afterward right here. That being mentioned, that is simply nice for nearly anybody to have a look at. Any melee character to love that permit me to rephrase and it’s discovered within the gamers handbook. Let’s check out the outline right here and type of break that what makes us so good obtainable afterward.


At the beginning price noting there isn’t a prerequisite for this feat. What which means is anybody have any race of any talent, or potential degree of any prior background can take this feat with no drawback. The outline reads as adopted.

As a Sentinel DnD 5E Feat you’ve develop into mastered in some methods to take a bonus of each drop in any of the enemy’s guard and naturally you may acquire the beneath talked about advantages:

  • Everytime you make to hit the creature by a chance assault and in addition the creature’s velocity can develop into 0 for remainder of the flip.
  • Any forms of creatures can be provoke the assault from you despite the fact that if they might take some Disengage motion earlier than it leaving your attain.
  • Each time a creature which is inside 5 toes of you to make an assault which is towards to a goal aside from you (and in addition that concentrate on doesn’t have this feat), you may simply use your response for making the melee weapon assault which is towards the attacking creature.

Actually actually cool stuff and tremendous superior. Let’s check out the walkthrough and type of break this down just a little bit extra.


After you’ll hit an enemy and whack them in a head or else no matter have you ever then instantly their velocity can be decreased to the “Zero”. Right here the tax of alternative will also be made eventhough every time the creature may take the disengage motion, in fact there’s a tax of alternative can even made when the creature can be inside 5 toes of you may assault one other goal.

Actually actually cool stuff. Actually i simply actually preferred all of this. The rationale why there’s just a little little bit of controversy over whether or not or not this may be stacked of polearm grasp is for this third bullet there. The one that claims you may assault creatures after they make it an assault towards one other goal inside 5 toes. That’s a tough restrict that 5 toes.

That being mentioned the second bullet after they simply depart your attain that might stack with polearm grasp. So loads of characters prefer to argue that each of them qualify for polearm grasp in my video games solely permit the one and a few DM is simply straight up saying no it applies to the weapon and to not your private attain i don’t actually agree with that one. However i’ve heard the argument made each methods. That being mentioned let’s check out my private ideas on this.


I feel that is completely superb! particularly if you happen to’re a personality that doesn’t use their reactions a complete lot. By way of who would profit most i’d most likely say paladin’s most likely they only as a result of the one issues they may actually use reactions for can be a pair spells they usually like to order these spell slots for his or her smite, so wouldn’t actually make a complete lot of sense from. That being mentioned this could be nice use of it. They may additionally technically a part of this up with their smites as effectively making additional harm. Which is rarely a foul factor if you’re a heavy hitter within the group. This may additionally make loads of sense for teams the place there is just one or two mate or solely when there’s a small quantity of melee characters how abut that.

Simply because this allows you to type of maintain aggro on your self and on the identical time stop enemies from reaching different targets if they fight or punishing them in the event that they do even. Which is superior actually this entire feat is fairly good. That being mentioned it could be price noting that there’s some feedback about it on this recommendation right here.

Firstly with a purpose to acquire profit from the third half it occurs after the assault is made so whoever the creatures concentrating on nonetheless takes harm it’s unlucky. However it’s the way in which it really works or until they miss guess. However nonetheless and the second query that’s addressed on sage recommendation is how does this work with the cellular feat and the flowery footwork for the circle adventures however guides swashbuckler i consider. In any case the ruling on sage recommendation is that these two methods round it won’t set off that second bullet level there until they take the disengage motion.

Which is actually fascinating. If you happen to actually give it some thought and earlier than i allow you to guys go immediately i simply wish to shortly tackle why that velocity discount is so overwhelmingly highly effective in 5e particularly with the way in which it’s worded. It basically means that you can drop targets, straight out of the air and ship them plummeting in the direction of the earth like some type of loopy comet.

I’ve heard tales whispered amongst DMs of events who’ve basically outright defeated dragons by hitting them as soon as as a response. Actually i discover this feat to be tremendous superior you can too use it to cope with pesky spiders or something of that nature as effectively. On the very least i’d definitely permit that in one in all my video games.


In any case guys! when you’ve got any loopy combos, cool concepts, feedback or questions relating to sentinel please take it down within the feedback beneath. I like studying them and i do know everybody else checking this text does as effectively. That being mentioned thanks a lot guys have an excellent day and as at all times blissful adventuring.
