Martial weapon proficiency


Rules Questions


Is there a way to get martial weapon proficiency without a dip or going variant multiclass oracle? Ib want to know for eldrich knight. I know eldrich knight isn't all that good, but still I'm curious.


Not that I'm aware of.


Are you looking for proficiency with all martial weapons like a fighter or just 1 or 2? There are some racial traits that give you the later.


All martial weapons as that is what gives you entry into eldritch knight.


Getting all martial weapon proficiency is pretty much only possible as part of a class. So if you need all of them, you have to multiclass. That's part of the point of eldritch knight, to keep you from being single class to enter the class.

I mean, you COULD go magus into eldritch knight. Kinda redundant, though.

Anyway, Hogeyhead, the entire idea of eldritch knight is that you're supposed to multiclass a full BAB class and a full arcane caster.


With VMC oracle and prestigious spellcaster, you can make an eldritch knight with full casting levels.


Why not do the dip at first level? Martials tend to start out quite strong, opposed to full casters.

Could ask your GM really, really nicely....Sarcasm aside, yes, you can totally meet the requirements for Eldritch Knight with several classes, you just can't do so at a low level.

For example, a Bloodrager will meet the requirements for Eldritch Knight at 10th level. The Magnus will meet the requirements at 7th level.


Some Mysteries give Full Martial Weapon Proficiencies.

Are we talking about some variant Eldritch Knight? Bacause I'm not sure how the Oracle can meet the other requirement...

You use Variant Multiclassing to exchange feats for Oracle abilities, including a selectable revelation. You pick one that gives full martial proficiency.


Battle Mystery revelation, "Skill At Arms" gives you martial weapon proficiency with all weapons and can be selected via Variant Multiclassing.


Oracle cast Divine spell, how can they qualify for "ability to cast 3rd level arcane spell" ? :)


You don't play an Oracle. You play a wizard (or other arcane class) that uses an ability to get Oracle stuff, specifically the Skill at Arms or it's Metal mystery equivalent.
