Disarming Attack Maneuver 5E

Hello battle masters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the second entry in our combat maneuvers series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at disarming attack maneuver 5e. Honestly this is one of my personal favorites so i hope you all enjoy it as well and it is perfect under a variety of circumstances and we will talk about that a little bit later. That being said, let’s take a look at the description.


Whenever you hit a creature with a specific weapon attack, you could expend a superiority die for an attempt to disarm the target and of course forcing it to drop one item of your choice that it is holding. You even add the superiority die to attack’s damage roll and the target should make a strength saving throw. On a failed save, it drops the object you choose. The object lands at its feet.

Really cool stuff there! let’s do a quick overview and kind of break it down a little bit.


After hitting a creature with an attack, so after the attack is already determined to hit very important. You can expend a superiority die. Add that roll to your total damage and the creature must succeed on a strength save or drop the item of your choice.

Really cool stuff! Now a lot of people’s heads go straight to weapons and shields. I personally think more utility based items. For example, a key or maybe an ancient artifact or something that the bad guy shouldn’t have a crystal ball perhaps, something of that nature.

I think that is super useful under a variety of circumstances and yeah if all else fails you know get them to drop their main weapon or spell focus and see how that turns out form right. It might also be worth noting that it doesn’t have to be a melee attacks he can do it at a distance too. I think that’s super great and the fact that you also get extra damage from it make it even better.


In any case if you have any ideas, if you’re picking this or if you’re not or if you have any thoughts, comments or concerns please put it down in the comment section below i love reading them, i know everyone else does as well. Thank you so much guys it’s been absolutely great getting to know all of you. Have a great day and as always happy adventuring.
