So, while flipping through the PHB, I've noticed that in 5th edition, multiple abilities can give you a buff on your unarmed strike, such as a monk's Martial Arts ability, the Tavern Brawler feat or an Aarakockra's claws.

If I were to make a monk with the Way of the Drunken Warrior archetype and give him the Tavern Brawler feat, is the d4 for unarmed strike from the feat rendered useless?

  • \$\begingroup\$ ok, thank you. yes, I did notice questions like it before, I just wasn't sure because it felt wasteful to just get rid of an extra ability like that. I dunno, maybe I could mess around with a bit of homebrew for it. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 17 '20 at 13:46
