Slasher (UA) DnD 5E Feat

Whats up adventurers! welcome to my spellbook and thanks a lot for clicked on to the 79th episode of our feat sequence. At the moment we’re going to be looking on the dnd 5e slasher feat. As soon as once more discovered within the tasha’s cauldron of every thing and this one i truly stumbled properly. I didn’t actually discover it anyplace however i considered a really attention-grabbing meta that may truly emerge because of this feat. At the very least i hope in order that being stated i really feel like some DM’s are probably gonna have an issue with it however personally i believe it’s nice however we’ll speak about that later. In any case let’s dive proper into its description.


At the start you get plus one to both energy or dexterity.

You’ve been discovered the place to be minimize to have the best outcomes, which are granting you the beneath talked about advantages:

  1. It enhance your Power or the Dexterity by 1, to the utmost of 20.
  2. Nevertheless as soon as per a flip everytime you hit a creature with an assault which offers with the slashing injury, you might even scale back the pace of a particular goal by 10 ft till except the beginning of your subsequent flip.
  3. Everytime you rating the important hit which offers the slashing injury to a selected creature, you’re grievously wound it. Till the beginning of your subsequent flip, the goal truly has drawback on all assault rolls.

Is that this not like one of many coolest feats we’ve lined to date. If you happen to’re form of unfamiliar with tasha’s there’s three major injury sort oriented feats that had been added in. The primary is crusher after which after that was piercer and now we’re coping with the slasher. I believe slasher is the perfect one so far as i can inform. Now i do know a few you might be like however you should use crusher with the monk and to that i say i perceive that. However simply give me a pair minutes right here and i’ll clarify just a little bit extra why even with that being the case slasher continues to be the bomb. Now let’s dive into the walkthrough part so we form of perceive what we’re speaking about…just a little bit higher.


So actually easy plus one to energy or dex.

As soon as per flip:

When dealing slashing injury, scale back the pace of the goal by 10 ft till the beginning of your subsequent flip.

If you crit:

Till the beginning of your subsequent flip, the goal has drawback on all assault rolls.

So this truly serves a pair completely different functions between a one and two. So for those per flip impact discount of 10 ft does two issues for you. Firstly it makes it more durable for them to get away in the event you strike them and so they’re operating away from you. Secondly it makes it simpler so that you can get away in the event that they’re the one chasing you. Which is very nice general, it additionally doubtlessly buys your celebration extra time to reach at your present location or form of simply stalls everybody. It’s actually attention-grabbing after which the function once you rating a important hit. Very nice just because as soon as once more it not solely protects you however protects your celebration members. So each of them form of serve a number of functions which is very nice and that’s what you wish to see out of a feat. Particularly in the event you’re foregoing a capability rating enchancment. Nevertheless you additionally do get that plus one to energy or dex. So in the event you’re a martial based mostly character or a fight oriented character you’re probably going to see profit from both of these in any case. So that is simply actually robust. Now let’s transfer on to my private ideas right here.


So hear me out guys! tabaxi, monk. I believe this might very properly and really simply construct a meta round this feat utilizing a tabaxi, monk as a platform. So the tabaxi in case you don’t know they do have a function referred to as cat’s claws and it does a pair issues it offers you a climbing pace of 20 ft which is so candy. However apart from that what we’re going to be speaking about is the truth that their claws at the moment are thought of to be pure weapons. They deal 1d4 plus your energy modifier neat and that’s wonderful and every thing however what’s actually cool is that they’re dealing slashing injury and the monks class potential if you wish to take a look at it like that’s that you simply deal extra injury with unarmed strikes the upper stage you might be there’s form of a method to cheese it utilizing one of many feats we’ve lined previously however general you deal slashing injury as some extent i’m making and due to that this feats relevant. It doesn’t actually say anyplace that you should be dealing slashing injury with a weapon. Solely that you should make an assault that offers slashing injury which as a result of cat’s claws your unarmed strikes would and seeing as how the monk relies round unarmed strikes. At the very least for essentially the most half there are like there are subclasses which are based mostly round extra magical influences and even weapons within the case kensey monk.


That being stated nevertheless let me know what you consider slasher down beneath within the feedback part remember to point out any ideas, questions, feedback or issues you’ve gotten relating to it or any construct concepts additionally let me know what you consider mine. I don’t understand how would play only a idea nevertheless it looks like it’d be actually enjoyable. As well as that thanks for checking in guys actually admire it. Hope you’ve gotten an incredible day and as all the time pleased adventuring.
