Cavalier quesitons


Rules Questions


Hey everyone, I've got some questions about the Cavalier class. I apologize if some of these have been asked already, but I haven't been able to find the answer to these on the forums.

1.) Does combat training for the mount give it attack for all creatures? The description doesn't say one way or the other. It doesn't make sense why a combat trained mount wouldn't attack undead creatures, cause you know...they're trained for combat :P

2.) Can Mounted combat let you use ride checks to get out of criticals?

It's only got the basic combat training. You need to push it to attack non-humanoids, or train it to advanced combat training.

Yep, you can negate any attack that requires a roll to succeed.

1. Combat training gives the mount the six tricks listed for the Combat Training purpose. This includes the attack trick only once, so it will only attack humanoids, monstrous humanoids or animals unless pushed ("giants" is redundant, as they became humanoids in Pathfinder). I believe you can teach it the attack trick again as a bonus trick, which gives it training to attack all types of creatures on command.
