Wrath of the Immortals Weapon Mastery

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

Weapons Mastery

Wrath of the Immortals BECMI converted to 5th Edition

Weapons Mastery is a special rules expansion that comes from Original Dungeons and Dragons and was not part of the AD&D or D&D 3rd edition. It comes from the Mystara setting and I have converted it across to 5th Edition for my players.

What is Weapons Mastery? – Weapon mastery increases the skilled use of weapons above those of ordinary people

In my campaign I have characters starting out with Proficiency in weapons as indicated in their class. This is a good baseline for characters and provides the basics to the campaign. There are two ways to gain weapons mastery. The first is with character levels as part of gaining a level, and the second is with downtime.

Then if your a fighter you gain 4 weapon proficiencies at level 1, a barbarian, paladin or ranger gains 2 proficiencies, and all characters gain an extra proficiency for every three class levels they gain.

Each proficiency can be used to upgrade your knowledge with one weapon. There are currently 58 weapons detailed for my players to use.

Weapons Mastery Overview (2019-06-25) walks through what is weapons mastery and how it all works, with Downtime for Weapons Mastery showing players how to expand their weapons mastery in the game beyond what they get every level. Lastly the secret craft of the Weaponologist is an advanced version of using weapons mastery.

Levels of Training

Characters start at non-proficient and gain training from Class and Race, and with every three full character (not class) levels. You can also gain weapons mastery through downtime activities, but cannot exceed your Tier’s training limits unless it is part of the Weapons Master Fighter Archetype.

Levels of training are non-proficient, proficient, skilled, expert, master and grand master.

  • BEMCI Basic at Tier 1 (Levels 1-5) can increase to Skilled Level
  • BECMI Expert at Tier 2 (Levels 6-10) can increase to Expert Level
  • BECMI Companion at Tier 3 (Levels 11-15) can increase to Master Level
  • BECMI Master at Tier 4 (Levels 16-20) can increase to Grand Master Level
