Talk:Blade Master (3.5e Prestige Class)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

In the "Playing a Blade Master" section, changed "weather" to "whether", "armies" to "army's" and "seal" to "steal"

Analysis[edit]

  • A total of +10 feet to your speed is not "incredible". If it were a total of +60 (three 20-foot increments), we'd be getting "incredible".
  • Flashstep and Afterimage should be Swift Actions. I mean, that's the whole POINT--they move so quickly, they seem to disappear and still have time to do something else. I'd also set Flashstep to your movement range.
  • It was stated above, but more detail need to be given as to what constitutes "After Image." Is the "After Image" caused by the Blade Master moving his full movement as a swift action? Or is this ability activated in some other extraordinary magical way? I'm editing this to reflect something that makes sense and something that suits a high-speed swordsman. "After Image" allows you to move your full movement speed as a move action, ergo, producing the After Image effects. However, you are limited to moving your full movement speed with "After Image" once plus your constitution modifier per eight hours of rest. If this ability is performed twice in the same turn, you become exhausted. You cannot perform the ability when exhausted. Activating "After Image" is a swift action.

Rating[edit]

Power - 7/5 I give this class a 7 out of 5 because Flashstrike seems somewhat overpowered (possibly unfinished) because of it's lack of a limit. Other than that it seems like a very solidly designed prestige class. --24.65.253.235 22:23, 7 January 2009 (MST)

Does not compute. >_> -- Jota 20:25, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Wording - 2/5 I give this class a 2 out of 5 because True Way of the Blade and Blade Master's Oath are unfinished and need to be further explained. --24.65.253.235 22:23, 7 January 2009 (MST)

Formatting - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because it was clean and concise. Very well done. --24.65.253.235 22:23, 7 January 2009 (MST)

Rating nullified; rater doesn't seem to have reviewed the guidelines. -- Jota 20:25, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Flavor - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because it provides a good alternative to some of the SRD melee classes that seem oh so lacking. --24.65.253.235 22:23, 7 January 2009 (MST)

Rating[edit]

Power - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because it has decent abilities but the ability to avoid attacks of opportunity is overpowered along with the fighter feats gained every other level. --98.232.64.15 19:43, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Wording - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because the class is well explained with good grammar and spelling. --98.232.64.15 19:43, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Formatting - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because I found no problem with the formatting. --98.232.64.15 19:43, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Rating nullified; rater doesn't seem to have reviewed the guidelines. -- Jota 20:25, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Flavor - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because The class is an interesting one and has great flavor explanations, possibly add regions that blade masters would frequent. --98.232.64.15 19:43, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Rating[edit]

Power - 3.5/5 I give this class a 3.5 out of 5. In some ways it is difficult to say whether the class is overpowered or underpowered because many of the abilities are so poorly explained. That said, most of the understandable abilities are fine. I have no problem with the AC bonuses or the bonus feats. After Image is nothing special. Blinkstrike could be overpowered if it stacked with keen or improved critical. Blinkstep seems almost... cosmetic. Crescent Slash is weak as hell for a 13th level ability. --Jota 21:15, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Wording - 1.5/5 I give this class a 1.5 out of 5 because it makes a mockery of all every English teacher I've ever had believed in. There are capitalization errors abound, numerous poorly explained abilities, numerous misspellings (catagory, fallow, strick, apprentace, etc.), poor sentence structure, poor grammar, run-on sentences, and so on and so on. --Jota 21:15, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Formatting - 1/5 I give this class a 1 out of 5 because it incorporates minimal text emphasis, inter-wiki linking is next to non-existent (scratch that, let's just go with non-existent), it doesn't follow the accepted class format, and the organization in general is poor. --Jota 21:15, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Flavor - 2.5/5 I give this class a 2.5 out of 5 because although it certainly has a niche (albeit one that has been attempted to be filled by many similar classes), the fluff is barely there. There's no sample NPC (might also go under formatting), and even the fluff class abilities (Oath and True Way) are undefined. --Jota 21:15, 25 June 2009 (MDT)

Rating[edit]

Power - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because I believe this class is slightly overpowered in some respects and underpowered in others. The fighter bonus feats I find slightly overpowered when coupled with the greater skill points per level than a fighter. Crescent slash is nowhere near powerful enough to justify its place as a 13th level ability. I would suggest introducing crescent slash at an earlier level with 1d6 damage perhaps adding 1d6 every other or perhaps every third level and limit its uses per day. Blinkstep should perhaps be swift actions but that would just be my opinion. --Zoltando 01:28, 13 July 2009 (MDT)

Wording - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because Grammar is not excellent but it is understandable on the whole. The Blade Master's oath and what it could possibly entail along with possible consequences of breaking it could entail (such as paladins loss of abilities if they do evil). Also the ability to make ones own oath later on seems to negate the purpose of the original oath. The blinkstrike ability is not explained to my satisfaction, such as if it stacks with other abilities like improved critical or weapons with the keen enchantment. --Zoltando 01:28, 13 July 2009 (MDT)

Formatting - 1/5 I give this class a 1 out of 5 because I do not have sufficient knowledge of the formatting system here to judge sufficiently so I must concur with the only previous rater who has not had their formatting section crossed out. --Zoltando 01:28, 13 July 2009 (MDT)

Flavor - 3/5 I give this class a 3 out of 5 because It is an interesting take on the possibility of a fighter who relies far more on speed than strength and armor to get things done. I would have given a higher rating however the lack of a sample npc and lore section forces me to give only a three. --Zoltando 01:28, 13 July 2009 (MDT)
