Buff that Bluff


Advice


I'm making a character who is really good with bluff (A Mesmerist) And I'm looking for all the different ways I could really buff that bluff.

I'm not just looking for ways to increase the numerical value, but ways to increase what I can do with it. Like Empty Threats allow me to do intimate checks with bluff.

Race wise, I'm already settled in for kitsune.


You can feint with bluff of course, and some feats let you do different stuff on a successful feint.

Any ideas on those feats? So far I've found deceptive exchange, but not being an alchemist I don't know what I can do with that.

Know of anyways to use feint if say, I've projected myself into an image of our knight's shield?

A unique use of bluff, limited only by your imagination!


on the feinting discussion: Vexing Daredevil is a pretty nice archetype if you wanna be more of a threat on the battlefield.

Looking at them a surprising number of those feats are racially specific. One such which might work for you is shapechanging savage. Disengaging feint lets you withdraw as a standard rather than full-round action, disengaging shot lets you make a single melee attack when you do so. Incite paranoia stops the feinted enemy providing flanking or using teamwork feats. Weapon trick (weapon and shield) gives you a free shield bash on a successful feint.

Most of those cost more feats than a class without bonus feats would be happy with though.

With deceptive exchange - I guess you could give them a lit pellet grenade but that's both unreliable and not especially effective. Possibly funny.

I have no idea how feints would combine with Enter Image.

'Spell Bluff' makes it harder for enemy spellcasters to ID what spells you are casting with a bluff check.

'Blustering Bluff' lets you mix Intimidate with Bluff to reduce DCs

'But a Scratch' lets you demoralize an enemy who crits you.

There may be more, but a quick scan found those.
