Since sometime in 2009, if you have proficiency in an implement type from any source, you can use that implement with any power that has the implement keyword. The easiest MC for a cleric to qualify for that provides Staff implement proficiency is Acolyte of Divine Secrets (mc invoker), which requires 13 wisdom and gives you access to staves and rods, as ...

Size changes the cost of the base weapon. [The weapon’s cost in the table] is the same for a Small or Medium version of the weapon. A Large version costs twice the listed price. SRD > Equipment & Special Materials > Weapons > Cost Masterwork costs do not change with size or material. The masterwork quality adds 300 gp to the cost of a ...

Slightly off because this is not a direct answer, but if I may, let me examine the premise of this question a bit... There does not always need to be "a point" to a weapon, in the sense that every weapon is superior to all other weapons in some game technical fashion. Weapons have been invented in different cultures and at different points in time. Because ...

A creature needs only the feat Simple Weapon Proficiency and a blowgun to make all of its iterative ranged attacks The blowgun is the only simple ranged weapon capable of making iterative attacks without devoting additional resources to doing so. Unlike a crossbow or sling, no extra time's needed to load a blowgun. Unlike a thrown weapon, the feat Quick ...

Yes, the creature makes attacks as if proficient with the single kamas used in each hand, but only because they're not actual kamas but as if they were kamas. The double-chained kama remains a double-chained kama no matter how it's used. No. Proficiency with the double-chained kama doesn't grant proficiency with the kama. The double-chained kama says ...

After all I have read and seen, it seems that the standards for LARP weapons are depending on the country/area where the LARP takes place. The technical standards in Germany (at least, probably more countries in Europe), if selfmade, is pretty much: a bar of fiberglass as center, to stabilize the weapon, then some layers of mats made of foam material. the ...

A quick look at wikipedia shows a couple of different types of boffer weapons. Standards are apparently set on a per group basis, determined by degree of contact. A Google search for boffer standards returns a bunch of how-to's from various game groups and the SCA.

The Charger feat states "...use a bonus action to make one melee attack or to shove a creature." Shield Master feat also grants the ability to shove as a bonus action if you attacked that round. This implies that for bonus actions at least, shoving is disctinct from a melee attack and can only be granted in special circumstances. The Shove attack action ...

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 ...

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 ...
