All adventurers, of all sizes and shapes! We welcome you to our blog. dnd 5e feats series today we are taking a look at one of the most, i want to say overlooked feats in the game..i’ll get into that a little bit more later. However, it can be very useful in the right conditions. So you’re really good there, today we’re going to be taking a look at Master feat of the dnd5e weapon masterIt is located in the player’s handbook and isn’t really worth taking early levels unless you have a great build idea but later on it really is and once again i’ll explain why a little bit more so. That being said let’s take a look at the full description here.
There is no prerequisite. This means that anyone can do it regardless of their class, race, background, or ability. The description is as follows.
A Weapon Master dnd 5e is a feat that you have done extensive training with various weapons, and has also gained the benefits listed below.
- You can increase your strength, or dexterity score by 1 up to maximum 20.
- You can also acquire the proficiency with any four weapons of your choosing. Each one must be simple or martial.
It’s really cool! It’s pretty cool. Now let’s break it down a little bit further in the walkthrough section here.
The +1 sign is strength your dex. It’s pretty obvious. Pick whichever ones closest to the ability score improvement and if they’re at the same point just pick whichever ones were useful to you. In terms of mechanics this makes sense, it essentially allows you to add your proficiency bonus to attack rolls made with fours weapons of you’re choosing. The weapons you choose depend on your preferences. They can be either simple or martial, which is the most common type of equipment you will find as starting equipment. With that out of the way let’s take a look at my personal thoughts on it.
Who do you think is the most benefit? Guish wizards, in all honesty. It really makes it so they don’t have to stick with that warcaster, class. It’s a great tool, and I think wizard is the best. Perhaps sorcerer, but warlock not so much. This would be one of the best.
If you’re building a strength-based monk or assassin or rogue in general and you really wanted use that larger damage die then this might be a good way of getting proficiency with it, without doing anything else really. Yeah it’s a rough another great use for it actually is if your party encounters a magical weapon that one of you wants use but you’re not proficient with it. This is a great way of making it more useful in combat.
In any event, these are my thoughts. You can share your thoughts, feelings and opinions or other cool stories. Weapon master 5e i’d really like to hear down in the comments beneath and i know everyone else checking out this article would as well. I wish you all a happy day and continue to enjoy adventuring.
