Heavy War Staff (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: first weapon prerequisites for stats were removed in 3.5. second no martial weapon should EVER be this powerful. The fullblade is pretty much the end all be all of upper limits and this surpasses it and doesn't even need a feat.

  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

Cumbersome staves, crafted from solid metal. Usually, seven-foot tall, three to four inches in diameter, and with a smooth rounded head at either end. These weapons seem rather impractical, until you see a horse skull or a knight's plate armor shatter under the force delivered by an end of a Heavy War Staff! It's use is simplistic with attack types being somewhere between a normal quarterstaff and a bat, making it just slightly less accessible to the average person.

Prerquisites: Base Strength of 20 or greater.

If an otherwise proficient wielder has less than 20 Strength, he takes a -2 on all attacks and damage; if an otherwise proficient wielder has less than 13 Strength he takes a -4 penalty to all attacks and damage; if an otherwise proficient wielder has less than 10 Strength he may not wield this weapon.
