Hastened Riposte

Post by Apoteos » May 16th, 2010, 9:33 am

I just noticed a bug/exploit (and sorry if this has been mentioned before somewhere I didn´t look) that, if you are hasted, enables you to perform the sword feat "Riposte" every round. Here is how you do it:

1. Cast Haste
2. Use the feat on an enemy
3. strike normaly / do something else just don´t use the feat again (yes this can be done)
4. Repeat step 2 and 3 until Haste ends.

You will not be able to actually do a riposte (counterattack with base attack of the sword), but every round you will get a guaranteed hit.

First, I guessed that this happens because the feat starts its countdown after an actual counterattack has been made, but if you use the feat (hasted or not) to strike a killing blow to a solitary enemy (which means no counterattacks), the feat is inactivated and starts its countdown again.

I haven´t tried this with the other feats at all, so you are welcome to share your hastened experiences.
The gift of life is so divine
But without death
Life would soon decline
