Full Attack when Prone


Rules Questions

Sovereign Court

The prone condition on p568 allows attacks. Full Attack has no conditions on condition. Therefore the rules suggest you can full attack.
This seems to be a straight copy of 3e (based on Rules Compendium). Is this correct?

Yes. Remember that being prone imposes a -4 on your (melee) attack rolls however and you cannot attack with ranged weapons (except crossbows), but otherwise there is no restriction on making a full attack.

So, the trick to standing up from prone more safely is to trip your opponent first then stand up?

Or take the Total Defense action before standing up.

Or just kill them with your full attack before standing up.

Also note, that despite sounding like it shouldn't work, as far as I can tell, you still threaten when you're prone (though you'd have a -4 to attack on your attack of opportunity.) You also can flank.
