Prerequisite(s): Ability to start a performance (or raging song) as a move action, bardic performance or raging song class feature.
Benefit: When you start a performance (or a raging song) as a move or swift action, you can use a standard action to demoralize a foe, attempting a Perform check appropriate to your performance in place of the Intimidate check. Your performance must be one with an audible component.
If you can start a performance as a swift action and you have the Dazzling Display feat, you can gain the benefit of Dazzling Display by succeeding at a Perform check in place of an Intimidate check.
Am I understanding this feat correctly?
1. IF you move or swift action performance
IF the performance is audible
THEN you can now perform a standard action to a demoralize foe using performance check in place of intimidate check
2. IF you have swift action performances
AND the Dazzling Display feat
THEN whenever you use perform in place of intimidate checks (such as this feat's first ability)
THEN you gain the benefits of dazzling display
So if I am understanding this correctly once I have swift action performances I can use a swift or move action to perform and then may take a standard action to intimidate using a perform check. When I use this perform check it is to intimidate all foes within 30 ft.
Is this correct?
Is there any reason I have to standard action demoralize this turn or could it be done anytime after the performance is started?
