Talk:Fencing Cloak (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
I love this kind of thing. It's kind of on the exotic side and it really allows for variety in character flavor. This isn't the most impressive stat-wise but it's the most impressive thing i have seen in a long time just through pure flavor and personality. :) - a HEMA enthusiast.
+1 against piercing ONLY
this is only used against any piercing attacks; it's vulnerable against Slashing and useless at Bludgeoning attacks.--188.8.131.52 10:06, 16 June 2016 (MDT)
- There are treatsies that say a cloak was effective against broadsword cuts if the whole cloak was wrapped around the arm. The AC bonus also represents using the cloak in a distractive way. Marasmusine (talk) 10:32, 16 June 2016 (MDT)
