Talk:Life-Siphoning Greataxe (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This weapon "deals 2d6 slashing damage plus 1d4 necrotic damage." Is this in addition to the normal 1d12 slashing damage dealt by a greataxe?

  • If so, to me this seems like too much extra damage considering the powerful secondary effect. It's an extra 90.5 ½ per hit, on average—plus an average of at least 20 hp restored per turn for 5 rounds, assuming at least one attack hits per round.
  • If not, then why replace 1d12 with 2d6? - Guy 15:28, 19 September 2018 (MDT)
