5e Feats – Feats 5e Guide for Dungeons & Dragons – [DND Feats] [D&D Feats]

Dungeons And Dragons 5e Feats
A feat represents a talent or an area of expertise that gives a character special capabilities.

It em bodies training, experience, and abilities beyond what a class provides.

At certain levels, your class gives you the Ability Score Improvement feature.

Using the optional feats rule, you can forgo taking that feature to take a feat of your choice instead.

You can take each feat only once, unless the
feat’s description says otherwise.

You must meet any prerequisite specified in a feat to take that feat. If you ever lose a feat’s prerequisite, you can’t use that feat until you regain the prerequisite.

For example, the Grappler feat requires you to have a Strength of 13 or higher.

If your Strength is reduced below 13 some how —perhaps by a withering curse— you can’t benefit from the Grappler feat until your Strength is restored.

Some DMs also allow the use of feats to customize a character. Feats are an optional rule in chapter 6, “Customization Options,” of the Player’s Handbook.
