I've only played D&D a little once and I'm trying to organise a game. I decided to go with the starter set to help me get into it. I have a question about the attack bonus for characters.
Example: Character has +3 Strength and +2 Proficiency Bonus on Strength so total is +5. That's okay. Now if they make a melee they roll a D20 and add +5 to the result. That's also fine.
Where I get a bit confused is when they attack with a weapon.
Character has a Greataxe and attacks with that. On the sheet it says the attack bonus is a +5 (I'm not sure how this is calculated).
But my question is how does the attack work now? Is it D20 +5 (from strength) +5 (from weapon)? Or is it just D20 + 5 (from weapon)? Also if the character is proficient with that weapon has the proficiency bonus already been added to this +5 or do I need to do that?
Any help would be great!
