Keep silent dispatch. Just give us a slightly weaker version of it that non-vigilantes can take as a feat.
Yeah this was a discussion I had early about the Nothing Can Stop Me ability and the dirty trick option. In short, an issue that 3.5 had and pathfinder is beginning to have is that we are starting to see written mechanics for tasks we've all wanted, wondered, or houseruled in the past but are being added in as feat or class ability options rather than just being either incorporated into the rules as is or incorporated with an expansion for the class they were originally intended for.
Like for this rule why not keep it and then add if you can finish a fight in 1 round you can make a Stealth check at -10? It allows rogues even without abilities to get some interesting options in surprise ambushes, keeps it from being a guarantee, and allows the vigilante to still have something interesting for them.
Same rule applies for the Dirty Trick options, and Nothing Can Stop Me. Give us options that can be used at a basic level without feat investments and then expand on them in class and feat selection rather than just leaving the rules forever static or expanding them as we get better ideas on how to implement or solve old problems.
