Talk:Brawler Shield (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Mathematically,this weapon is really weak,having disadvantage to hit makes it mathematically on par with a dagger at low ac(up to ac 9),and after that it is outshined by either the damage needs to be buffed or the disadvantage needs to be removed,also the weapon should give an ac bonus (since it being technically a weapon means that it is not considered a shield,and as such it needs to be specified) Vladulenta (talk)

Recommend removing disadvantage on the attack AND reducing damage. It probably shouldn't do more than a dagger since even then it would be basically strictly better than a dagger (cant be thrown though). Another :balancing option is to give only +1 AC, that along with only dealing 1d4 is probably what I would do in my campaign. 23:16, 4 April 2021 (MDT)
