Weapon Abilities – Warpick

Weapon Ability – Base DC – 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, your weapon mastery bonus, your Weaponologist bonus, your weapons mastery feats and Archetypes.
Base DC = 8 +Ability Mod +Prof +WM Bonus +Circle Bonus +Feat Bonus +Arch Type Bonus (Martial +2)

Weapon Ability – Deflect – If you spend your bonus action this round on this quality, you can attempt to deflect attacks with your weapon. Your Base DC becomes your armour class against ranged or melee weapons of your size or smaller until the start of your next round while you still have a reaction. If an attack would have hit you, but is lower than your Base DC, you deflect the attack and your weapon takes half the damage. Each level above skilled adds +1 WM Bonus to the Base DC. (Magical Implements don’t take damage from spells or use up their reactions when deflecting spells)
(Expert Spell Deflection) You can redirect the spell to a target with a cone opposite from the spell caster as long as its still within range, expending your reaction to do so.
(Master Spell Deflecting) You can redirect the spell to a target with the remainder of the range, and expend your reaction to do so.
(Grand Master Spell Deflecting) You add your range extension to the redirect.

Weapon Ability – Disarm – As a bonus action, if you have struck an opponent this weapon this round, you can attempt to disarm your opponent with the opponent making a Disarm Saving Throw.
Disarm Saving Throw – Dexterity vs Base DC. Failure causes item in chosen hand to be dropped in targets square. Critical success causes you to drop this weapon instead.
Associated WeaponsHalberd, Lochaber Axe, Longsword, Morningstar, Partisan, Rapier, Shortsword, Sickle, Trident, Warpick,

Weapon Ability – Hook – As a bonus action, if you have struck an opponent with the weapon this round, you can attempt a hook attempt with opponent making Prone Saving Throw.
Prone Saving Throw – Strength vs Base DC. Failure causes the target to drop prone. Critical success causes you to drop this weapon instead.
Associated WeaponsBill, Gisarme, Halberd, Lochaber Axe, Sickle, Warpick

Weapon Ability – Range – A weapon that can be used to make a ranged attack has a range shown in parentheses after the ammunition or thrown property. The range lists two numbers. The first is the weapon’s normal range in feet, and the second indicates the weapon’s maximum range. When attacking a target beyond normal range, you have disadvantage on the attack roll. You can’t attack a target beyond the weapon’s long range.

Weapon Ability – Thrown – If a weapon has the thrown property, you can throw the weapon to make a ranged attack.
Thrown (Attack Option) If the weapon is a melee weapon, you use the same ability modifier for that attack roll and damage roll that you would use for a melee attack with the weapon. For example, if you throw a Handaxe, you use your Strength, but if you throw a dagger, you can use either your Strength or your Dexterity, since the dagger has the finesse property.
Associated WeaponsBastard Sword, Battleaxe, Club, Dagger, Flail, Greatsword, Handaxe, Javelin, Light Hammer, Light Shield, Longsword, Mace, Morningstar, Net, Shortsword, Spear, Trident, Warhammer, Warpick,

Weapon Options – Warpick

Weapon Option – Armour-Piercing Thrust (Attack Option) – As an attack, you may pinpoint a weak point of an opponent’s armour. This attack pierces armour, treating the target’s AC as 10 + their Dexterity modifier. On a hit, this attack does normal weapon damage.

Fearsome Accuracy (Attack Option) As an attack, you may throw your weapon at a creature at the very limit of your range. Make an attack roll against a creature exactly at you range maximum. If the attack hits, the creature takes normal damage and must make a Frightened Saving Throw. Each level above expert with the weapon adds +1 WM Bonus to the DC.

This can be used against creatures without clothing at the GM’s discretion. If you hit, the target must make a Restrained Saving Throw vs your Base DC.
Retrained Saving Throw – Strength vs your Base DC. On a failure the creature is restrained, and can use an action on their turn to make another Restrained Saving Throw to get free.

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 enhancement changes. I also shorted the name from War Pick to Warpick to match up with how the Warhammer is named.
