Talk:Half-Sworder (5e Feat)

From D&D Wiki

Thanks, Marasmusine, for the critique. You're right, it doesn't make much sense in D&D. I'm still not sure whether making half-sword attacks DEX.-only is UP (forcing STR.-based character to use a lesser stat) or OP (allowing DEX.-based characters like rogues to use greatswords).--CherryHolley (talk) 14:44, 19 June 2018 (MDT)

I added a proficiency-with-that-sword caveat, so this feat doesn't make rogues OP using a greatsword. Still not sure about the barbarians being forced to use DEX. though.--CherryHolley (talk) 14:53, 19 June 2018 (MDT)

Just because Dex is required (though you can half-sword with brute force just as well) doesn't mean Rogues get sneak attack, assuming that was your issue. Sneak attacks only work with ranged weapons and weapons with the finesse tag. Using Dex =/= Finesse. Monk/Rogues cannot use sneak attack with unarmed strikes unless a DM homebrews a rule to allow it. Additionally, if you were worried about rogues and sneak attack, it wouldn't really matter that you put the "needs proficiency" stipulation as the Weapon Master feat could grant proficiency anyway.
