When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.
Do I get 1d8+2 instead of straight 1d8 on my Shocking Grasp and Booming Blade ?
One is a melee spell attack, and I want to know if the +2 to damage roll from it applies to melee spell attack.
Lightning springs from your hand to deliver a shock to a creature you try to touch. Make a melee spell attack against the target. You have advantage on the attack roll if the target is wearing armor made of metal. On a hit, the target takes 1d8 lightning damage, and it can’t take reactions until the start of its next turn.
The other is a spell that requires you to make a melee attack. Does the attack get +2 to the damage roll as well. Does the 1d8 thunder damage also gets +2 when the target moves?
As part of the action used to cast this spell, you must make a melee attack with a weapon against one creature within the spell's range, otherwise the spell fails. On a hit, the target suffers the attack's normal effects, and it becomes sheathed in booming energy until the start of your next turn. If the target willingly moves be- fore then, it immediately takes 1d8 thunder damage, and the spell ends.
This is confusing to me because after searching left and right I found this answer.
If the melee spell attack is made while the weapon held in hand, does it count for the +2 bonus to damage roll from Dueling Fighting Style?
