Talk:Armed and Ready (5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Making More Attacks?
Wielding extra weapons does not allow you to gain extra attacks, you can only ever make 1 additional attack with light weapons per the rules on two-weapon fighting.--Blobby383b (talk) 17:52, 6 July 2018 (MDT)
You are correct in this matter. I didn’t ever intend to imply otherwise, the purpose of this feat isn’t to allow the wielding of more weapons and that’s it. I assume you misinterpreted this feat. --TEG (talk) 06:36, 8 July 2018 (MDT)
- Yep, I thought that you designed the feat so extra attacks could be made as holding extra melee weapons isn't really an advantage on combat since holding more than 2 melee weapons doesn't provide anything.--Blobby383b (talk) 10:34, 8 July 2018 (MDT)
You’d be suprised how resourceful players can be with that power; for example you can proc many abilities (crossbow expert as one) with the use of a 1 handed light weapon attack. Another example is (without the use of a crossbow expert feat) reloading a crossbow usually requires a free hand so the extra arms allows 3 shots from 3 handcrossbows without technically breaking any rules about he loading property. Those are just some things I could think of off the top of my head (not to mention what could be done with duel wielder, monks, or am action surge with thrown weapons. Any ideas how it could be abused, go ahead and let me know! --TEG (talk) 16:37, 8 July 2018 (MDT)
