When using the Battle Master's Trip Attack combat maneuver, PHB says "to add superiority dice to the attack's damage roll and (opponent) must make a Strength Saving throw or be knocked prone.
Pretty sure about this but just want some clarity. . .
Is the DC number to avoid the Trip attack the total damage done from the attack? If I do 15 points of damage, is that the DC the opponent must save against?
No, the DC of the maneuver is always equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength or Dexterity modifier (your choice).
