Dwarven Ancestry Feats Level 13: Dwarven Weapon Expertise

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my guide and thank you so much for checking out the only level 13 ancestry feat in the corebook for the dwarves. We’re looking at dwarven weapon expertise this is cool more for martial characters but it is cool, i find it’s a little lackluster in terms of flavor for 13th level feat but i don’t know whatever i suppose beggars can’t be choosers. That being said, let’s take a quick look at the description here.


So the tag is dwarf, the prerequisite is dwarven weapon familiarity. Note that is not dwarf and weapon cunnings you just need the level one feat as a prerequisite for this, just so you know and it reads as followed.

Your dwarven affinity blends with your training, granting you great skill with dwarven weapons. Whenever you gain a class feature that grants you expert or greater proficiency in certain weapons, you also gain that proficiency for battle axes, picks, warhammers, and all dwarven weapons in which you are trained.

This is very cool stuff from a mechanical level. Basically anytime a class feature would benefit a weapon in terms of proficiencies that same proficiency boost also applies to all the weapons relevat to the dwarves. Very cool mechanically, super cool mechanically i just find flavor-wise a little bit lackluster but let’s break it down.

Break Down

Apply a class feat proficiencies to battle axes picks war hammers and all dwarven weapons in which we’re trained. I just write it in the other or the trait spot for the melee strikes relevant or highlighted a different color what have you. Some form of indicator that you’ll be able to recognize. Ultimately it is pretty cool, whether or not it’s worth it…i don’t know i’ll leave it up to you. I’m looking forward to covering a last omen feats because they really do add a lot more flavor.


That being said, we got to finish up the core rulebook first. That being said, let me know what you think about dwarven weapon expertise down beneath in the comment section. Let me know if you have any thoughts, questions, comments or concerns about it. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy adventuring.
