Additionally, before the end of your next turn, you can add the stamina die to an attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less) if you have advantage on the attack roll, or if the creature is within 1 meter of an enemy of the creature that isn’t incapacitated and you don’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended.

As an action, you can make a melee weapon attack with advantage against a creature that is below half its health. Add half the stamina die to the attack’s damage (add half if you miss by 4 or less).

Until the start of your next turn, if you are within 10 meters of a creature that you can sense that is below half its health, any attack you make against a creature not below half its health is made with disadvantage.

Enhance

You can increase the damage for each additional stamina die expended.
