Hello, does the feat Resounding Blow works to cower opponents when the intimidate check from intimidating rage or swift demoralization doesn't? Like against paladins with aura of courage for example.
I'm making an intimidate based character with imperious command plus rage feat route with Zentharim soldier and Champion of Gwynharwyf and i'm looking for a way to incapacitate opponents with fear immunity because i'm sure after 2-3 fights my DM will make me encounter lots of enemies with fear immunity so i need a way to bypass it and i found the Resounding Blow feat that make an enemy cower after a critical hit without an intimidation check but instead with a Will save, and in the description it doesn't say the effect it's a mind affecting one like dreadful wrath for example.
If Resounding Blow doesn't bypass fear immunity can you suggest me other methods to incapacitate enemies? I can change a couple of feats (plus the one used for Resounding Blow) if needed.

A fighter may select Resounding Blow as one of her fighter bonus feats.
