I hate the Vigilante because of how stupidly over engineered the class is to prevent powerful combos or even just useable things. Like the Celebrity Perks ability Ash quoted. If you ever sell the gift from the fan, you will have your celebrity status instantly ripped away from you by the Gods, no matter where you are, be it in the same country, planet, galaxy or planar realm.
I mean, a vigilante gets a gift at 7th level, and then 10 levels later, as he's wining and dining with a God-like being in another plane of existence, he decides to sell his collection of baubles from ages past and some supernatural force descends upon him, ripping away his extraordinary celebrity persona because, f~!$ you, that's why.
Or other abilities like Lethal Grace.
The vigilante combines strength and speed into incredibly deadly attacks. He gains Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat, and if he already has the Weapon Finesse feat, he can immediately swap it for another feat for which he qualified at the level he chose Weapon Finesse. When using Weapon Finesse to make a melee attack using his Dexterity bonus on attack rolls and his Strength bonus on damage rolls, he also adds half his vigilante level on damage rolls. This bonus damage is not reduced or increased if the vigilante is wielding a weapon two-handed or in an off-hand.
The ability specifically calls out he must use dexterity for attack, and strength for damage in order to add half his level to damage rolls. This is the same kind of nonsense the resulted in the Nerfratta for the Slashing/Fencing Grace feats so you can't dual wield or use shields with them.
