Weapon Qualities – Knife Shield
  • AC Defence (+ AC bonus/number of attacks): If you spend your bonus action this round on this quality you gain a bonus for your armour class for the next indicated number of attacks.
  • Awkward. You have disadvantage within this range when attacking with the weapon.
  • Base DC (+number): Some of the effects produced by weapons masters has a saving throw to resist. This saving throw is calculated as 8 plus the ability modifier used in the attack roll. This is sometimes increased as you gain skill with the weapon, gain the Weapon Mastery feat or the fighter archetype.
  • Break: This weapon is fragile. If the attack roll to hit a target or be hit by an opponent is a critical miss, then the weapon will break.
  • Extra Attack: As a bonus action, an attack can be done with this weapon if you have already attacked with another one-handed weapon this round. The attack, unlike usual two weapon fighting, adds the ability bonus to damage if striking the same target. Otherwise this is treated as a Light weapon.
Weapon Options – Knife Shield
  • Armour-Piercing Thrust: As an action, you may pinpoint a weak point of an opponent’s armour and make a single attack with your weapon against it. This attack pierces armour, treating the target’s AC as 10 + their Dexterity modifier. On a hit, this attack does normal weapon damage.
  • Close Quarters Combat: When you successfully grapple a creature or escape a grapple, you may make a single attack with this weapon as a bonus action. Additionally, whenever a creature fails to escape a grapple with you, you may make a single attack with this weapon as a reaction.
  • Main Gauche: While wielding both a bladed weapon and a light bladed weapon, you may use a reaction after being attacked to roll a d4 and add the result to your Armour Class until the end of the attacker’s turn.

Design Details on building Weapons Mastery

I have managed to even out most of the damage, but also increased it in this case as it is working better with my magical weapon enhancment changes.
