Heavy Armor Master, Variant (5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Heavy Armor Master Plus
Prerequisites: Proficiency with heavy armor
You can use your armor to deflect strikes that would kill others. You gain the following benefits
- Increase your Strength score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
- While you are conscious and wearing heavy armor, bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage that you take from non-magical weapons is reduced by a third of your level rounded up
- The above ability cannot reduce damage to less than 1 and occurs after all other damage reduction effects have taken place.
NOTE: This is an attempt to setup the regular Heavy Armor Master feat (PHB-167) to level better.
