Martial Core Class: The Fighter
« on: April 13, 2012, 11:55:44 PM »
The Fighter is the Martial character, defined by his ability to effect the world through his physical prowess.

Levels 7 and 8 are offered for those who prefer slightly more "epic" experience. These levels are unsupported balance-wise, so use at your own risk.

Discussion:

On "Weapon Specialization": The old weapon specialization feats are being removed entirely, as they were useless and only usable by fighters anyways.

On "Improved Edge": A level 6 fighter with any dex bonus at all will always have the edge over any other level 6 full BAB class. That's an amazing capstone for the E6 tier.
