The feat says successful melee trips result in a free attack. Does a trip from a weapon also result in a free attack? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 02:33, 21 January 2008 (MST). Please sign your posts.

Using a melee weapon is a melee attack. So yes, you get a free attack.--Dmilewski 07:10, 21 January 2008 (MST)
if i have four attacks, and use the first to trip them, would i end up with five attacks, including the trip?

if I have improved trip and for my op I trip them can I attack afterwards?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Trip attacks are made in place of melee attacks, so if your BAB was +11/+6/+1:
  • You would use trip (with a melee weapon, if desired) as your opening attack, in place of your +11.
  • If the trip was successful, you would get a free attack against the tripped enemy (At no BAB bonus, mind).
  • You would then have your +6 and +1 attacks which you could use as normal.
I hope that clears up your question --SgtLion (talk) 01:55, 13 July 2014 (MDT)

my question was for taking trips attempts on my attack of opportunities for example my DM read this and said on attack of opportunities if i trip them i do not get the free attack attempt. Is this correct?

That is correct, you only get the extra attack when you perform a trip in melee combat (instead of a regular melee attack). Attacks of opportunity count as it's own separate thing.
Uh, well. If you trip somebody as part of an Attack of Opportunity you *will* then you will get the free Melee Attack immediately, too, as if you hadn't used the AoO to trip. --SgtLion (talk) 07:29, 26 January 2018 (MST)
