Power Attack: Old vs New


Combat & Magic


I like the old power attack feat. IMVHO, you should be able to decide just how much you want to put into power vs finesse.
In reality, I box...I don't just decide, "I'm going to throw a normal punch" or "I'm going to load up," I make trade off's..more oomph behind one shot, a faster, more precise punch later, or if I've got an easy target, put all I've got into power.


I'd rather retain the old Power Attack feat. I think more options are always good.


I agree. The old Power Atack feat was more to my liking.


I agree I hope they change it back.


I think the older Power Attack was better.

Silver Crusade

I also agree, the old Power Attack and Combat Expertise were better. This is slightly simpler, but the loss of options isn't worth it.
