Feat Path: Witcher Parry, Improved Witcher Parry, Witcher Counter
Sword Parry (Combat, Style)
Prerequisites: Strength 15, Exotic Weapon Proficiency (Bastard Sword)
Benefit: When an attack overcomes your AC and you are armed with a weapon that you’re proficient with, roll a CMB check. Unlike most CMB checks, any enhancement bonus from your weapon does benefit this check. If the result equals or exceeds the target’s attack roll, you successfully Parry the attack. Apply the damage of the attack to your weapon instead of you. Note this maneuver counts as an attack of opportunity, meaning without Combat Reflexes it can only be attempted once per round.
Normal: An attack that overcomes your AC hits and deals damage.
Improved Sword Parry (Combat)
Prerequisites: Sword Parry
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus on Parry CMB checks. Additionally, on a successful Parry, your weapon only suffers half damage.
Normal: Your weapon suffers the full damage of an attack if you succeed on a Parry roll.
Sword Counter (Combat)
Prerequisites: Sword Parry
Benefit: If you successfully Parry an attack, you can make a single attack against your opponent. This attack is made at your highest attack bonus but suffers penalties accumulated on your last turn (such as penalties from power attack, etc).
Normal: A successful Parry does not allow you to attack your opponent, merely to avoid damage.
Alternative Counter (Combat)
Prerequisites Sword Counter
Benefit: On a successful parry, you can substitute a combat maneuver in place of the attack you would otherwise make.
Normal: If you successfully parry an attack, you make a single attack at your highest bonus against your opponent.
