This is a good feat because Battle Master maneuvers can be quite strong, but it is limited by the superiority dice. You only get one die and it doesn’t scale with your level. 

This feat is usually most effective for the Battle Master subclass from which it came. This is because you get two new maneuvers and an extra superiority dice, which is a reasonable increase in place of an ASI.

Which 5e Classes Make the Most of Martial Adept?

The color code below has been implemented to help you identify, at a glance, how good the Martial Adept 5e feat is for a specific class/subclass.

  • Red isn’t going to contribute to the effectiveness of your character build at all
  • Orange is an OK option
  • Green is a good option
  • Blue is a great option, you should strongly consider this option for your character
  • Sky Blue is an amazing option. If you do not take this option your character would not be optimized

Fighter: This is a fairly good option for Battle Masters that want more dice/maneuvers and for Champions that want to trip a foe and use the advantage to aim for critical hits. It is, however, a bit more clunky than taking something like Lucky.

Paladin: Don’t bother since you only get one superiority die.
