Where are the rules for Knockback?


Rules Discussion

Sovereign Court

Under the Awesome Blow Barbarian ability, on a Failure it says "You gain the normal effect of Knockback." I can't find it in the status effects at the end or on the GM's screen. Is it hidden away somewhere? Is it a mistake and they actually meant "Shove" on pg. 243? That's my best guess.


Knockback is a 10th level Barbarian feat. In fact, it's the very prerequisite for Awesome Blow.

Thank you. I'm surprised large enemies can't knock back smaller foes anymore without being a 10th lvl Barbarian...


They can still just use Shove, which is the same thing. Knockback even says it works like a Shove.


That's not the only way to knock back smaller foes. It's just that hard for PC races to gain.

Ex. Stone Giants (only level 8) have Big Swing which knocks you 10' (20' on crit) which can be useful since they live in mountainous territory...with cliffs.
