Duelist of the Falls (Combat)

The gadget spec URL could not be found

You have embraced the Falls method of swordplay, known for its elegant, sweeping strikes.

Prerequisite(s): Dueling Disciple, Exotic Weapon Proficiency (dueling sword), Weapon Finesse, Weapon Focus (dueling sword), base attack bonus +5.

Benefit(s): When you deal damage to a shaken, frightened, or panicked foe, you can add your Dexterity bonus to damage rolls instead of your Strength Bonus. You do not apply 1-1/2 times your Dexterity bonus to damage rolls while fighting two-handed. If you can already add your Dexterity bonus to damage rolls, you instead gain a +1 competence bonus on damage rolls with a dueling sword.

When you attempt a dueling parry during a duel, the penalty on your attack roll to parry is reduced from –5 to –3.

To gain these benefits, you must be wielding only a dueling sword (not using a shield, an off-hand weapon, armor spikes, unarmed strikes, or natural weapons).

Combat Trick: When you hit a foe with a melee attack made using a dueling sword, you can spend 4 stamina points to treat that foe as being shaken for the purpose of gaining a bonus from Duelist of the Roaring Falls until the start of your next turn.
