Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 59th episode of our feat 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, it does have a lot of use under the right circumstances though so you’re really good there.
Today we’re going to be taking a look at weapon master dnd 5e. It is found 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 we’ll explain why a little bit more so. That being said, let’s take a look at the full description here.
Table of Contents
First and foremost there is no prerequisite for this feat meaning anyone of any class, race, background, ability etc can take it with no problems. And the description reads as followed. So that you can get to know what is weapon mastery in dnd?
Really cool stuff there! Honestly it’s pretty cool! Now let’s break it down a little bit further in the walkthrough section here.
So the plus one is strength or dex pretty self-explanatory, pick whichever ones closest to the ability score improvement and if they’re at the same point just pick whichever ones weren’t useful to you. In terms of mechanics this makes sense. It essentially allows you to add proficiency bonus to your attack rolls made with four weapons if you’re choosing. What those weapons are kind of depends on you they just have to be either martial or simple, which is basically all of them you find you starting equipment. With that out of the way well let’s take a look at my personal thoughts on it.
What is the point of weapon master 5e? In terms of who i think benefits most from it, probably gish wizards in all honesty. It really makes it so they don’t have to stick with that war caster class and i really do like it honestly. Wizard probably the best use for it, maybe sorcerer as well. Warlock probably not so much…yeah that would probably be the bit pretty but probably the best ones if you are building a strength-based monk or assassin or rogue in general and you really wanted to use the larger damage die then this might be a good way of getting proficiency with it without doing anything else really.
Is weapon master feat good? 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 would be a great way to use of to make it far more useful with in combat.
In any case those are my thoughts on weapon master feat 5e. If you have any thoughts, feelings, opinions or combo ideas or cool stories involving weapon master. I’d really like to hear down in the comments beneath and i know everyone else checking in does as well. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy adventuring.
