Is there any way a non-fighter character (with 8 str but mucho dx, 18+, rogue skill boosts to athletics and a way of getting a trip weapon through Gnome Weapon Familiarity - Kukri - and then boosting that weapon) will ever match a flat out fighter with 18 str as a trip-fighter build?
Is it pointless/ineffective to attempt try and build a tripper without maxing out the strength for athletics?
Is multiclassing in Fighter the only way to access Attack of Opportunity?
(Use of Ineffective in effect!)
there is a discussion on the rules section if "skill rolls with the Attack trait are attacks", the majority, backed by a playtest dev insight that "yes, you do use dex for tripping finesse weapons" believes that the answer is "yes".
in that case, a rogue will be as good as a fighter in tripping, since Skill proficiency has nothing to do with weapon proficiency and everyone gets expert/master/legendary at the same time.
Thank you for the swift reply.Will that be legal soon? Or will it be enough that it's on the forum as -intended as- legal?
why you're asking me when a faq/errata will be out? how would i know lol?
as for it being legal or not, better talk it with your gm, some people will see it one way others another, if it's for pfs, then i don't have a clue since i don't play pfs
True. Thank you for pointing out that that line of questioning exists at least.
