Quick Mercy (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Quick Mercy [Fighter Only]
You are so adept with your weapon of choice that you become quicker at giving your foes a merciful and swift death. Your experience has also taught you how to do so in a fashion that does not leave you open to attacks.
Prerequisite: Weapon Specialization (weapon of choice).
Benefit: You can use a standard action to make a Coup de Grace with your weapon of choice (and only that weapon). You do not provoke an attack of opportunity doing so. All other normal consequences still apply.
