Probably not, by RAW There are a couple of reasons I think this is correct: 1. A Water Elemental is not simply water, nor a liquid Whether or not you consider water to be an object, a Water Elemental is a distinctly different thing. By that logic, you can't use Water Walk to deal with a Water Elemental any more than you can drive a carrot to the store (the ...

Answer based on RAW rules is Yes you can grapple a victim, take it in your arms (move with it or not) and drop it in any squares you can reach before the end of your turn (2 creatures cannot occupy the same space at the end of any turns) PHB 195 : When you move, you can drag or carry the grappled creature with you, but your speed is halved, unless the ...

One solution: On your turn, take an attack action, declare you "want to grab a creature or wrestle with it" this allows you to make special melee attacks called grapples. Now your melee attacks are grapples if you replace the melee attack with the grapple. Since it does not declare you can grapple only once per turn, nothing prevents you from ...

The unconscious status has a number of effects, the important one being: The creature drops whatever it's holding and falls prone. Also by RAW the Akheg is incapable of surprising someone with 21 Passive perception. (though they can beat their initiative roll ...

It's normal for the DM to improvise new rules to make the game more interesting. I've never told somebody that they couldn't use acrobatics to escape a grapple, but I've said similar things. For example I've said: "After the wolf knocks you over, it moves onto you and now it's standing on your stomach, so you won't be able to get free just by spending ...

No, shoves are not covered by the Grappler feat From the Combat chapter of the PHB/basic rules, in particular the 'Shoving a Creature' section: Using the Attack action, you can make a special melee attack to shove a creature, either to knock it prone or push it away from you. If you're able to make multiple attacks with the Attack action, this attack ...

Shove does not use an attack roll Shoving a Creature is described as (emphasis added): The target must be no more than one size larger than you and must be within your reach. Instead of making an attack roll, you make a Strength (Athletics) check contested by the target's Strength (Athletics) or Dexterity (Acrobatics) check (the target chooses the ability ...
