The updated Shield Master ruling pretty much kills that feat for grapplers, and Tavern Brawler becomes the better option. Alas.
Sage Advice is official staff making there own rulings. The only official rulings are those in the books and errata.Sage Advice is official, being from WOTC. Again, your own home games don't have to use it, but AL has to.
Alas, the OP has been MIA for a long time. The guide won't be updated, unless someone creates a new thread.The Guide to Ravnica introduces a huge game changer in the Loxodon. Looking forward to it being added here.
Sage Advice Compendium makes reference to it indirectly, since the core of this discussion about Shield Master is the main action triggering the bonus action, meaning you can only use the bonus action after completing the triggering action. As such, it covers Eldritch Knight in this part:Sage Advice is official staff making there own rulings. The only official rulings are those in the books and errata.
EDIT: And I guess the Sage Advice Compendium could be considered so as well, but I've yet to see shield master mentioned in any of those.
This is all referenced in the tweet sage advice record here anyway: https://www.sageadvice.eu/2018/05/23/clarification-about-bonus-actions/Does the “when” in the Eldritch Knight’s War Magic feature mean the bonus attack comes after you cast the cantrip, or can it come before?
The bonus action comes after the cantrip, since using your action to cast a cantrip is what gives you the ability to make the weapon attack as a bonus action. That said, a DM would break nothing in the system by allowing an Eldritch Knight to reverse the order of the cantrip and the weapon attack.
Carrying capacity? The trunk is functionally a third arm that does almost anything that isnt a weapon attack. The possibilities for expanded action economy are huge for grappling and just about any other play style.Doesn't change anything. Carrying capacity was never really a limit on the build.
I was specifically thinking about the moon Druid version of this build, which would lose “trunk.” But sure in person form, it’s a potential third grab target. Not really important for action economy - still costs an attack to grab.Carrying capacity? The trunk is functionally a third arm that does almost anything that isnt a weapon attack.
