Disarm hijinks

Rules Questions

Scarab Sages

Was wondering if this tracks, or in other words can anyone pick holes in my reading of RAW?

Could a Monk using Spring Attack, move to an enemy, disarm them, pick up the weapon, then finish out their movement to dispose of said weapon?

Disarm = "You can attempt to disarm your opponent in place of a melee attack."
"If you successfully disarm your opponent without using a weapon, you may automatically pick up the item dropped."

Spring Attack = "You can move up to your speed and make a single melee attack without provoking any attacks of opportunity from the target of your attack."

Yep, totally legit.

Yep, I have used this several times over the years. As a DM to deprive some of my players of some of their cool weapons and as a player for a short time to deprive my DM some of his cool weapons...:)

2 people marked this as a favorite.

It's legit, but every time you do it you are required to shout "YOINK!"

The real hijinks would be using Greater Trip instead of disarm, and then using a disarm on the AoO provoked by the trip...

And it would still be perfectlly legal.

Add Greater Disarm, and just move between your target and his now 15' away weapon....
