Talk:Untouchable Blade (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
I added a couple spins to it. People have been wanting to play it in my Pathfinder Campigns so I tweaked it slightly to make them a little more PF friendly, feel free to digregard my changes if it doesn't suit you.
I moved a couple things around to not give them any dead levels. I hate dead levels... I HATE dead levels...
I also gave them the Infinite Deflection Epic Feat at 17th Level usable only if they have a slashing weapon drawn.
Lastly, I gave them Augmented Critical at 20th Level as a final level ability. Figured that should push them over the glass ceiling, make them truly awesome. Also as in PF everyone sans the Cleric gets some 20th Level boost, it fits, and is powerful enough for a 20th level power.
Some stuff that I noticed:
It wasn't clear if Precision Strike adds Dex bonus instead of Str bonus or in addition to it. (I'm guessing it's instead, or else there would be a problem with weapon finesse and shadow blade adding twice the Dex bonus) Even so, It's a little unbalanced, since it mirrors two feats, one of which can only be taken using the Tome of Battle classes. You might want to make it add only attack and an Improved Precision Strike at a later level (maybe 5th) to add the damage bonus.
Another thing I noticed is that you gave him Sudden Strike. I think you should give him sneak attack instead, to prevent incompatibility with Crippling Strike (they follow the same mechanics so it shouldn't be a problem)
Given the amount of special abilities available and the tendence to stealth, you should nerf the attack bonus to 3/4*level.
I guess that's it, good luck with your class. If you disagree with something I'd love to know why. --ElfsMaster 04:52, 31 January 2008 (MST)
Edited quick step
I like the class even if it isn't balanced.
I filled in the quick step's description to be like the monk's speed increase.
They should probably be proficient with these, after all they are a weapon meant to be used for parry and counter fighting styles and favor dexterity over strength.
Halberds vs. Glaives
I think if the classes shtick is blades, then they should be able to use glaives rather than halberds. Glaives being nothing more than swords on sticks.

- I'm only going to update the flavor part of this rating since it is clear that the formatting and power rating criteria were misunderstood and the wording is obviously not a five if something is wrong. -- Jota 13:13, 3 June 2009 (MDT)
