Ask Wizards04/13/2006


Q: For well over a year now I've been searching for the location of a feat introduced in Oriental Adventures called "Great Throw". Though referenced in multiple feats and prestige classes throughout the book, the feat itself doesn't appear anywhere in my copy. I've also extensively searched other books, and the complete feats list on the D&D website, to no avail. Could someone please point me in the direction of this elusive feat? For curiosity's sake if nothing more at this point.

A: To follow up yesterday's Ask Wizards, we'll also need to point you to the direction of our errata page.

You’re right, this feat was inadvertently left out of the book. Happily, your search concludes at the Oriental Adventures errata, which provides the following information on Great Throw:

You can throw your opponents to the ground, choosing where they land and dealing damage in the process.

Prerequisites: Improved Unarmed Strike, Dexterity 13+, Dodge, Improved Trip, Combat Reflexes.

Benefit: When you make a successful unarmed trip attack against a creature no larger than your own size, you can choose where the creature lands, within the area you threaten. In addition, you deal your normal unarmed strike damage to the opponent. The creature's movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity, no matter how far you move it. When you use this option, however, you cannot make a follow-up melee attack using the Improved Trip feat.

Tomorrow: no errata, just trivia!
