Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 56th episode of our feats series. Is your character the kind of guy or girl who just likes to get his hands dirty and just go full tilt regardless of the setting just has that need for battle that desire for fighting that deep burning battle lust.
If that sounds like your character and if they’re not one for formalities then this feat might be worth taking a look at. Today we’re going to be taking a look at dnd 5e tavern brawler feat this classic among classics has found in the player’s handbook and you know for the right build i think it’s really dang good. That being said let’s take a look at the description here.
There’s no prerequisite for this! what that means anyone of any ability level of any skill of any class or of any race can take it. No problem! With that out of the way let’s look at the full description.
As a Tavern Brawler DnD 5E Feat an Accustomed for the rough-and-tumble fighting by using whatever the weapon has been happen to be at the hand, also you can gain the below benefits:
- You can increase your strength or the constitution score by 1, to the maximum of 20.
- You are also proficient by improvised weapons.
- Actually, your unarmed strike can be uses a d4 for the damage.
- Whenever you make to hit a creature by an unarmed strike or else an improvised weapon on your turn, you can easily use the bonus action for attempting to grapple the target.
Very cool stuff there! my goodness, let’s take a look at the walkthrough and break that down just a little bit further.
First and foremost that +1 strength/constitution up to you is pretty self-explanatory ultimately just pick whichever one your is closest to your ability score improvement and outside of that just pick whatever was more useful to you.
The proficiency with improvised weapons let’s you add your proficiency, a bonus to attack roles made with an improvised weapon. What does it improvised weapon you may ask! Use your imagination can be a beer bottle, can be a rock, can even be a spoon.
You also get a 1d4 to your unarmed strikes which is super great there and has a bonus action whenever you make a unarmed strike or improvised weapon attack, you can attempt to grapple. Which is super super cool stuff. Honestly i really like this. With that out of the way let me take a look at my personal thoughts on it.
I read somewhere i haven’t been able to find the thread i know it’s out there. That you can actually build a spoon monkey using this feat. You essentially take proficiency and improvised weapons make your improvised weapons, your game has to rule in favor on that. But if they do then this build is very really cool.
Basically as you use a spoon as your kensi weapon and if you’re familiar with how monks are played, it’s pretty dang funny. So i really think it just depends on how your play-style is. In terms of who benefits most from this! probably anyone with natural armor so monks, lizard folk, barbarians, warforged all of those would benefit greatly with this.
Just because in the setting you’d have access to improvised weapons. It would probably meet not so much of a great idea to be wearing armor at the same time. So that’s kind of my personal thoughts on this. Mechanically this feat actually works out quite great. The plus one either strength or con really make it. So almost anyone can grab it and it’ll make sense for their character.
