Prerequisite(s): Barbarian 4
Benefit(s): Once per rage, the barbarian can make a disarm attempt against a target in place of a melee attack. This attempt does not provoke attacks of opportunity. If successful, the barbarian sends the target’s weapon flying—either straight at the target, or spinning away to strike another foe up to 20 feet away.
This ranged attack counts as throwing a weapon that isn’t designed to be thrown, even if the weapon disarmed is a thrown weapon.
The barbarian makes a ranged attack, which doesn’t provoke attacks of opportunity, at either the target of his disarm maneuver or another creature within 20 feet. If the barbarian is aiming for the disarmed creature, the foe doesn’t count as being in melee for determining any penalty on the ranged attack from throwing a ranged weapon into melee. If the ranged attack hits, the disarmed weapon deals damage as if the barbarian had thrown it.
The barbarian can choose to aim the disarmed weapon at a square rather than at a foe.
