DnD 5E Battlemaster Maneuvers Guide

Hello battle masters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the combat maneuvers series. Thank you so much for checking out i really do appreciate it and this series will be aimed at answering all of your combat maneuver related questions as well as explaining to you each individual dnd 5e battlemaster maneuvers guide and how it works. In any case let’s get started.

Before we dive into the rest of the series here i just wanted to go over a couple things in relation to the battle master. The first being superiority dice.

1) Superiority Dice

The superiority dice are essentially the fuel for your maneuvers. You start out with four of them at the third level and you get one extra at 7th and at fifteenth level for a maximum of six. The size also increases so as a third level all of your superiority die will be a d8, at 10th level it’ll turn into a d10 and then 18th level will be a d12.

Of course you do regain all of your expended superiority dice whenever you do finish a short or long rest. Really cool stuff there! And now let’s take a look at an overview for the maneuvers.

2) Maneuvers

So as you can tell there are quite a bit. 16 to be exact, we’re going to go through all of them together. The amount you select varies on your level. So you start out with 3 at third level. At 7th level you get two more for a total of five, at tenth level 2 more for a total of 10 and at fifteenth level a total of 9 and that is your maximum. You can use only one maneuver per attack

Then maneuvers save DC is calculated as followed: It is 8+your proficiency bonus+your strength or dexterity modifier and that’s up to you. That should be enough of an overview to understand how the combat maneuvers work. In any case guys i’m looking forward to getting this series started with you and i hope you enjoy the articles.


If you have any questions related to superiority die or maneuvers please put it down beneath and myself or one of the fantastic community members here we’ll get to you as soon as possible. With that in mind thank you for checking out and have a great day.
