Heavy Armor Master Redux (5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Heavy Armor Master
Prerequisites: Proficiency with heavy armor
You can use your armor to deflect strikes that would kill others. You gain the following benefits:
- Increase your Strength score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
- While you are wearing heavy armor, bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage that you take from non-magical sources is reduced by your proficiency bonus + 1. If the armor you are wearing is a magical armor, you reduce the damage taken from magical sources as well.
- You are not at a disadvantage on Stealth checks while wearing heavy armor.
This feat was redesigned to allow it to scale with level, rather than being powerful early on and tapering off in the higher levels.
