Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: Unsure about the "blinding" special attack. D&D doesn't have called shots: Why can't any bludgeoning weapon be slammed into an opponent's face for the same effect?

You can help D&D Wiki by finishing and/or adding flavor to this page. When the flavor has been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand the idea behind this page please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

A khakkhara, sometimes known as a shakujo, is a specially-constructed ringed staff used as a holy symbol or weapon sometimes used by monks. The staff's rings serve two main purposes: to warn small creatures to move from the wielder's path to avoid being accidentally trodden on, and to alert the faithful that there is a priest nearby.

While you are carrying a khakkhara, you have disadvantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks.

As a weapon, a khakkhara is treated as a quarterstaff. When you make a melee attack with a khakkhara, you can try to slam the staff's rings into the opponent's face; on hit, the attack deals 1d4 bludgeoning damage instead of the normal damage for a quarterstaff, and the target must succeed on a DC 10 Constitution saving throw or be blinded until the end of its next turn.
