Fighter Perks

Like many classes in EFU, Fighters have a large list of perks to choose from. You may select a perk by opening your character's Crafting Menu. You may only choose one kit and cannot change your perk once it is chosen.

Fighters receive a free action based on their perk that can be activated by entering "/c fighter_perk" and is usable once (1) per rest.

Bonus feats (such as dual-wielder's Ambidexterity or squire's Disarm) count towards the prerequisites of further feats (such as Improved Two Weapon Fighting or Improved Disarm).

You will lose these perks if you take levels in a base class other than Fighter! Prestige Classes do not disable class perks, but may come with other restrictions.

Lay Sword

Temples of all faiths often boast a number of lay members skilled with blade and hammer, but unsuited for the life of a priest. These men wage war for their respective deities, taking orders not from worldly lords but the sanctified mouths of priests and priestesses.

Man-at-arms

These rugged men make up the bulk of any Lord's army, but they are not the characters of tales and stories. Often as not, these soldiers die nameless deaths on the battlefield-- fodder for the tales of greater men. Still, someone must walk the walls and guard the tents.

Level 5

  • +3 Discipline

Pit Fighter

Be it a freeman seeking coins and glory in the Great Arena of Westgate or a Thayan slave fighting for his very life, pit fighters are a common fixture among the realm. These men, if they survive, tend to be excellent warriors but poor soldiers.

Self-taught

Not every man is so lucky to have a mentor to school them in battle. Some, forced by circumstance, win their martial skill through the teachers of hardship and experience. These individuals, while lacking the discipline of formally trained soldiers, can be fearsome with their unorthodox and unpredictable styles-- if they manage to survive long enough to hone them.

Sellsword

Base men with loyalties as fluid as a dying man's bowels, sellswords can be found milling about potential conflicts like carrion crows. It has been said that a sellsword can only be trusted as far as he can be paid, and many a lordling has been ruined by ignoring this wisdom.

Fighter Perk "/c fighter_perk"

  • Sellsword bribes nearby reasonable creatures to consider him neutral for 4d6 gp. Lasts for 2 turns.


Level 1

  • 1d4 gp gained each rest/reset

Level 5

  • +5 Intimidate
  • +2 Appraise

Level 8

  • 1d6 Sneak Attack


Sharpshooter

A trained longbowman or selftaught, the Sharpshooter is a force to be reckoned upon the battlefield. With the know-how to destroy an opponent from afar, few enemies have the chance to ever inspect the fighter's expertise at a close range.

Squire

The children of the wealthy receive a very different sort of warrior's education than the common footman-- one based as much in morality and honor as it is in swordplay and siegecraft. Though some see such codes as more hindrance than help, the noble warriors of the realm see it as the only thing separating them from the common filth that pollute the battlefields.

Fighter Perk "/c fighter_perk"

  • Immunity to Fear and +2 Will. Lasts for 5 turns.

  • +3 Lore
  • +3 Concentration

Vagabond

Drifting from place to place and caravan to caravan, vagabonds pack lightly for speed of journey. Long years of experience have made them adept at fending off blows, nimbleness replacing their more thickly armored counterparts' reliance on armor.

Fighter Perk "/c fighter_perk"

  • Invisibility. Lasts 2 turns.

Level 1

  • Light Armor bonus (maximum bonus of 2 AC)
  • Can track in wilderness.

Level 5

  • Light Armor bonus (maximum bonus of 3 AC)
  • +10% Movement speed.

Level 8

  • Light Armor bonus (maximum bonus of 4 AC)
  • +1 Reflex.
  • Evasion feat.

Light Armor bonus

  • Adds armor bonus to Leathers, Studded Leathers, and Chain Shirt armor pieces worn; No other armors receive this bonus (Cloths, Padded Cloth, Breastplates, or Heavy Armors).
  • Your armor will be increased to a maximum of 4/5/6 AC at levels 1/5/8 respectively.
  • Enhancements to armor like Mage Armor or them having an AC bonus already on the armor, are included in these calculations. They do not stack.
  • Dexterity modifiers above two will be subtracted from this bonus. If you have a dexterity modifier of 3/4, the bonus is reduced by 1/2, and so forth.
For example, if you are level 8 and have a dexterity modifier of 3 while wearing Leathers that grants 2 AC, the bonus granted to your armor will be 3 AC, not 4 AC.
If you have a dexterity modifier of 0 at level 8, if you will only be given 4 AC onto those same Leathers, because it can only grant a maximum of 4.

Vigilante

Champions of the established rule or of their own governance, vigilantes hunt mercilessly any dissenters who stray from the desired path. They are more capable upon familiar grounds, this often being the place they reside.

Watchman

Every settlement from Waterdeep to the hamlet of Pig's Bottom has its guards.
