Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Weapon Master.

Note: Weapon Master levels count as fighter levels for purposes of feat requirements

Masters Damage: Starting at first level you may chose, after scoring a hit but before confirming a critical, to do full damage instead of rolling to determine damage once in a round, once per day per class level.

Weapon Bond: At first level the Weapon Master chooses a type of weapon i.e. longsword, then bonds with a masterwork version of the weapon. This bond is what allows the Weapon Master to use their abilities with the weapon. A Weapon Master may transfer the bond to another masterwork weapon of the same type but only after training for five eight hour days with the new weapon.

Bonus Feat: At second, sixth, and tenth level you gain a bonus feat from the fighter feat list.

Armor Mastery Medium: At third level you are able to wear your armor like a second skin and ignore the standard speed reduction for wearing medium armor and reduces the armor check penalty by two. If this feature is granted by another class it increases to heavy armor and if heavy is granted this feature reduces the armor check penalty by an additional two.

Masters Defense: At fourth level when using your bonded weapon you gain a dodge bonus of plus one to your AC and improves to two at eighth level.

Increased Multiplier: At fifth level your bonded weapon's critical multiplier increases by one.

Masters Critical: Acts as the Improved Critical feat or if you already have it, adds +2 to you bonded weapon's threat range.

Masters Confirm: At tenth level you can chose to automatically confirm a critical hit twice per day per class level. This ability can be used on the same attack as Masters Damage.
