    Default weapon specialization question

    does it stack with the mastery feats? Say I take specialization in a melee weapon and the melee mastery feat do I get +4 damage with said weapon?

    I think it stacks, yes.

    They're untyped bonuses, that are both applicable, from different sources, with no text specifying that they don't stack. Yeah, they stack.

    Yes, it stacks. However, it is a horribly inefficient waste of a feat.

    If you're talking about the PHB Focus line, then yes. But the OP said Weapon Mastery, which is PH2 (and generally considered the way to go if you even bother with Weapon Spec).

    I do agree that the line in general is underpowered, but the Weapon Mastery feat in PH2 isn't as bad as the lower level versions.

    Particularly Ranged Weapon Mastery which is one of the very few means of gaining bonus damage on ranged attacks, and also increases your range.

    Now if we could only do something about greater weapon focus/spec...
