Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the specialist.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A specialist is proficient with all simple and martial weapons and with light armor.

Favored Enemy: At 1st level, a specialist may select a type of creature from among those given on Table: Specialist Favored Enemies. The specialist gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks when using these skills against creatures of this type. Likewise, he gets a +2 bonus on weapon damage rolls against such creatures.

At 5th level and every five levels thereafter (10th, 15th, and 20th level), the specialist may select an additional favored enemy from those given on the table. In addition, at each such interval, the bonus against any one favored enemy (including the one just selected, if so desired) increases by 2.

If the specialist chooses humanoids or outsiders as a favored enemy, he must also choose an associated subtype, as indicated on the table. If a specific creature falls into more than one category of favored enemy, the specialist's bonuses do not stack; he simply uses whichever bonus is higher.

Track: At 1st level a specialist gains Track as a bonus feat.

Beginning at 8th level, a specialist can move at his normal speed while following tracks without taking the normal –5 penalty. He takes only a –10 penalty (instead of the normal –20) when moving at up to twice normal speed while tracking.

Trapfinding (Ex): At 1st level, a specialist is able to use Search to find traps with a DC 20 or higher. The DC to find a magic trap is 25 + spell’s level. The specialist can also use the Disable Device skill to disarm traps.

Combat Style: At 2nd level, a specialist must select one of two combat styles to pursue: archery or two-weapon combat. This choice affects the character’s class features but does not restrict his selection of feats or special abilities in any way.

If the specialist selects archery, he is treated as having the Rapid Shot feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

If the specialist selects two-weapon combat, he is treated as having the Two-Weapon Fighting feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

At 6th level, a specialist's aptitude in his chosen combat style (archery or two-weapon combat) improves. If he selected archery at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Manyshot feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

If the specialist selected two-weapon combat at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Improved Two-Weapon Fighting feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

At 11th level, a specialist's aptitude in his chosen combat style (archery or two-weapon combat) improves again. If he selected archery at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Improved Precise Shot feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

If the specialist selected two-weapon combat at 2nd level, he is treated as having the Greater Two-Weapon Fighting feat, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites for that feat.

The benefits of the specialist's chosen style apply only when he wears light or no armor. He loses all benefits of his combat style when wearing medium or heavy armor.

Quick Draw: At 2nd level a specialist gains quick draw as a bonus feat.

Dodge: At 3rd level a specialist gains dodge as a bonus feat.

Evasion: At 4th level, a specialist can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If he makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, he instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the specialist is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless specialist does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Poison Use: Beginning at 4th level, the specialist becomes proficient at applying poison to his weapons.

When the specialist reaches 10th level, he can use poison with near inhuman quickness. The specialist can apply poison to a weapon as a move action (instead of as a standard action).

The specialist never risks injuring himself while applying poison to a weapon.

Improved Disarm: At 7th level a specialist gains improved disarm as a bonus feat.

Improved Trip: At 9th level a specialist gains improved trip as a bonus feat.

Urban Camouflage: A specialist of 13th level or higher can use the Hide skill in any sort of urban terrain, even if the terrain doesn’t grant cover or concealment.

Hundred Faces: Beginning at 14th level, the specialist may transform himself as if under the effect of a disguise self spell for 1 minute once per day. Using hundred faces counts as a swift action that does provoke an attack of opportunity.

Hide in Plain Sight: While in any sort of urban terrain, a specialist of 17th level or higher can use the Hide skill even while being observed.
