Monkey Lunge (Combat)
Paizo Peripheral

This content is from material published by Paizo Publishing, LLC, but is not part of the Pathfinder Core Rules.
You can quickly recover from your lunges, helping you to avoid counterattacks.
Prerequisites: Lunge, Acrobatics 1 rank.

Benefit: As a standard action, you can use the Lunge feat to increase the reach of your melee attacks by 5 feet until the end of your turn, without suffering a penalty to your AC. You cannot use this feat if you carry a medium or heavy load.

Normal: You take a -2 penalty to your AC until your next turn when making a lunge attack.



Right up there with Prone Shooter, which negates the attack penalty for firing a crossbow while prone.

(click to show/hide)There is no penalty for firing a crossbow while prone.

Piazo sure gets what was wrong with 3E.  Yup yup.

The sad part is that I get what Paizo was doing, but they were soooooo close!

Adding 5 feet to your reach can be great for melee builds, especially Spiked Chain and reach weapon guys.  The problem is that the Feat doesn't do anything!  If it was a Swift action, it would be a pretty good choice.

When people pointed out broken stuff in the playtest, they did occasionally respond so I know they have it in them.  They're like Icarus, flying so close to the sun they come crashing down.
