Is there any really good reason not to take the merciful enchantment? Like enemies can easily ignore nonlethal damage?I have a level 9 barbarian who already has Vicious. The extra 1d6 is great, and dealing nonlethal makes a lot of sense for the character, and taking the damage from vicious as nonlethal would really help survivability.
The main reason NOT to take it is if you want another enhancement more. Since it's a +1, it will increase the cost of other enhancements. If you can't come up with another enhancement, though, then this doesn't really matter. (Though as a barbarian, you might look at the Furious enhancement first.)
Second reason I can think of is if it doesn't fit the character.
Sounds like you are one of those "feelthy roleplayers" madame. I mean, what's the idea of roleplaying in a roleplaying game, really?
