In Combat! Hee-Hah!

Posted in pathfinder, rpg by trashcondor on 2 May 2013

In Pathfinder it has – for a while now – been a gripe of mine that there aren’t really many good Move Actions to do in combat. Sure… there is actually moving, which is pretty important, but as a rule getting that full-round attack with all the trimmings (possibly haste or/and two-weapon fighting) is the way to go. The primary go-to for useful other move actions would be Improved Feint, that allows feinting to be done as a move action. Not bad, but rather rarely used. I figure this is the realm for custom feats, so I present Combat Intuition. Let me know what you think:

Combat Intuition

You’re good at making the most out of combat situations.
Prerequisites: Wis 13
Benefit: After you hit with a melee attack you may, as a move action, perform any combat maneuver against that target. The maneuver provokes as normal.

    Doesn’t this feat stop being useful as you start gaining attacks for a high BAB?

    Not for me it doesn’t. Even at 11 BAB I’d rather take one attack, then do a (full BAB) bullrush/grapple/steal/whatever. The -10 attack is really just to roll a 18+. Then consider that you can start building for Standard-Attack specialities, like Great Cleave and the Vital Strike feat chain. Vital Strike by itself is only so-so unless you are a feat-rich fighter; but with Combat Intuition you can justify it by having a potent move action option.

    I’m a shape changer. It’s the same me.

      You obviously take your roleplaying seriously ;)
