No, not with a "single strike", which the PHB would call an attack. Quoting from the Player's Handbook, p.73 (emphasis mine): Many maneuvers enhance an attack in some way. You can use only one maneuver per attack. If you have a second attack, from a feat or from the lvl 5 Extra Attack class feature, you can use a second superiority die to use another ...

Yes. In 3.5 the sunder special attack wording is "You can use a melee attack with a slashing or bludgeoning weapon to strike a weapon or shield that your opponent is holding." In Pathfinder however it was changed to say "You can attempt to sunder an item held or worn by your opponent in place of a melee attack." Discussion by users on the Paizo forums about ...

So this question sort of ultimately comes down to "does shove use my weapon?" the answer to which is unfortunately clouded and probably up to your DM more than it is governed by the rules. I think in my games, I'd probably not, as "shove" seems more like a body to body effect (or shield if you're using one) rather than a weapon push, but I'd be open to ...

No, unarmed strikes aren't considered weapons. Official errata has stated that Weapons (p. 149). Unarmed strike doesn’t belong on the Weapons table. But Jeremy Crawford has clarified via Twitter that ...[The melee attack errata] lets melee weapon attacks use unarmed strikes, despite those strikes not being weapons. So you can use your unarmed ...

From the Errata: Melee Attacks (p. 195). The rule on unarmed strikes should read as follows: “Instead of using a weapon to make a melee weapon attack, you can use an unarmed strike: a punch, kick, head-butt, or similar forceful blow (none of which count as weapons). On a hit, an unarmed strike deals bludgeoning damage equal to 1 + your Strength ...

1. Would shield bashing, or using the shield as a weapon, meet the requirements of the Pin Shield feat? Yes, you can use a shield as an off hand weapon for purposes of the Pin Shield feat. Like with an ordinary shield bash attack, you lose any AC bonus provided by your shield until your next action. You would also suffer any other penalties for fighting ...

You are allowed to move through a space occupied by an ally, you just can't end your turn there. This means that you attempt to tumble or overrun when you are adjacent to the space you are trying to pass through. Remember that occupied spaces count as difficult terrain, so plan your movement accordingly. You still use up movement going through the enemy, ...

Combat maneuvers can't score threats In the discussion of the Paizo Blog post Combat Maneuvers and Weapon Special Features Pathfinder designer Sean K. Reynolds in Oct. 2011 posted this question-and-answer: If you have Tripping Strike and attempt to disarm someone, can you "crit" the disarm attempt and thereby trigger your Tripping Strike? ...

Yes, you use the +5 to hit. CMB Explained When you attempt to perform a combat maneuver, make an attack roll and add your CMB in place of your normal attack bonus. Add any bonuses you currently have on attack rolls due to spells, feats, and other effects. These bonuses must be applicable to the weapon or attack used to perform the maneuver. As the +5 ...

Yes. The Pathfinder rules read: You can attempt to sunder an item held or worn by your opponent in place of a melee attack. Emphasis mine.

My opinion is that RAW is clear on that you can use your Attack action to a shove. Since it doesn't limit it unarmed attacks it is done with whatever you are making an attack with. Note that in other areas of rules, like the Monk attacks, the rules does limit an ability to unarmed attack. My feeling is that it is not an oversight. Remember also 5e ...

Not really There is no official way to change or augment the list of disciplines that a given class offers. Can’t prove a negative, but Tome of Battle was one of the last books published, and its material is referenced almost nowhere outside itself (Dragons of Eberron is the only book I know of that does so). Tome of Battle, itself, certainly has nothing of ...

Weapon and Torch does not have you using the torch as a weapon Notably, you do not make a separate attack roll with the torch: you make an attack roll with whatever weapon you are using, and then if that hits, you also use the torch for some extra damage. The use of the torch in this manner is automatic following a hit with the weapon. You can use a torch ...

This Unofficial Tome of Battle Tools page contains a search engine for all maneuvers in the Tome of Battle. "Number of prerequisites" is one of the possible filters. Full maneuver texts are accessible. It also contains indexes by alphabetical order, discipline and maneuver level. Disclosure: I wrote the website.

Let's do a bit of set-up: Charging Charging is a special full-round action that allows you to move up to twice your speed and attack during the action. Charging, however, carries tight restrictions on how you can move... Full-Round Action A full-round action requires an entire round to complete. Thus, it can't be coupled with a standard or a ...

Rules Yes, a combat maneuver can be a critical threat. The critical threat rules are part of an attack roll, and a combat maneuver specifically makes an attack roll. Attack Roll An attack roll represents your attempt to strike your opponent on your turn in a round. When you make an attack roll, you roll a d20 and add your attack bonus. (Other ...
