From D&D Wiki
I am quite sure i have overlooked many an important detail.
Please feel free to let me know, and i'll fix it to the best of my abilities. - Grozomah 7.4.2012
You don't actually need to have a "maximum maneuver level" column. The initiator level is the same for all martial adept classes (9th level is IL 17+ and so on. Either than that, it's pretty much perfect. Danzig (talk) 10:03, 8 May 2012 (MDT)
Actually it's intended as such. Monk's only weakness compared to the swordsage is that he can't wear armor. For this he gets better saving throws, increased movement speed and a HUGE number of feats and utility powers. So the swordsage starts with chainmail (+4 AC), but the monk in time gains both speed increase and extra AC, pretty much outmatching the swordsage in every way. To nerf the monk a bit, i decided to take away from the monk something the swordsage has - high level maneouvers. To be honest, i was thinking about making level 3 maneouvers available at level 7 (not 6), leaving the monk a whole level of maneouvers behind. -Grozomah 21:44, 14 May 2012 (MDT)
