Picking a feat for flavor is a completely sane reason. That's all I said. Nothing more, nothing less.
This is a thread for bad feats.
Yes it is. So? I can't make comments that aren't 100% on topic? That never was a problem on this boards.
The only reason to argue about something is whether you disagree on if it's a bad feat.
Except I wasn't arguing anything concerning the feat's goodness or badness, so you were just making a strawman. And don't talk to me about "scope of the thread". I just commented on your post. You're the one who chose to argue.
Or just to be an asshole, I guess.
It could be argued who's the asshole here. For one thing, I don't call other people assholes.
Or you could just use a club.
Yes you could. Your point?
To add something to the thread for a change. Don't know if bad rules are "in the scope of the thread", but something that irks me is that Paizo for some reason thinks the smallest things are umbalancing or something like that. I mean, it is obviously unoptimal to one-hand a two handed weapon, because you lose on a feat (or ability), you gain minimal damage and lose on accuracy. Now, I don't know how it was in 3.5, but by RAW a two-handed weapon doesn't technically have to be two-handed to gain higher Power Attack damage (maybe even to gain bonus damage for two-handing one-handed weapons, it's not clear), so this flavor option has at least that going for it. Of course Paizo doesn't like mundanes having even the smallest advantages, so they specifically nipped that rule in the bud. They copy-pasted this rule leaving this interpretation open, but then made it clear in a FAQ somewhere that it doesn't work.
Man, sometimes I hate Paizo.
