Distracting Strike 5E

Hello battle masters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 3rd battle master maneuvers article today we’re gonna be taking a look at the most dazzling strike you could ever imagine, today we’re gonna be taking a look at dnd 5e distracting strike honestly i really like of this placed thematically and you know from a mechanicals points of view it’s actually pretty good as well. With that hyped up intro out of the way let’s take a look at the description here.


When you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can expend one superiority die to distract the creature, giving your allies an opening. You add the superiority die to the attack’s damage roll. The next attack roll against the target by an attacker other than you has advantage if the attack is made before the start of your next turn.

Very interesting i do have a comment about this one wording wise and it’s a little bit tricky on how you want to rule it. That being said, let’s take a look at the overview. You may also like to read this dnd 5e distracting strike spells.


Essentially when you hit, you can expend a superiority die. So after you know its a hit then you can activate this. Really ood feature. You add the total to your damage which is super sweet. And give you allies advantage on attack rolls until your next turn. However you may also like to read fighter 5e. And also check out this can you sneak attack with unarmed strike 5e and also read this dnd do unarmed strikes count as weapon attacks

Now that’s my interpretation of it. I have seen this interpreted where only the next attack gets advantage. I assume that every attack disadvantage until your next turn because technically speaking that initiative that turn all happens at the same point in time. Also read this what is the difference between brace and riposte 5e? and also what is the difference between a trip attack and a distracting strike?.

So that’s my ruling i’ve seen DM’s argue it another way, i’ve seen other players argued the other way. So run it past your dungeon master, see what he thinks or she thinks who they think and go from there. Have you checked our latest article on superiority dice 5e.
