Water Damage (5e Variant Rule)

From D&D Wiki

Water Damage[edit]

Put simply, water damage is damage dealt though certain water-themed attacks. It is a type of damage, much like slashing or force. The only creatures that can use this must meet one of the following prerequisites:

  • They must be aquatic or aquatic-based (i.e. a waterdrake).
  • They have some sort of weapon or item which deals water damage.

Some water-themed attacks use bludgeon damage instead of water damage. However, water damage can be useful in cases such as:

  • Throwing a book into the ocean.
  • Damaging fire-based creatures.
  • Creating certain elemental creatures.

Water Damage Variant[edit]

Simply treat water damage as you would bludgeoning damage in all cases, except creatures made out of fire or magma have vulnerability to water damage.
