Bleeding Critical and Duelist's Crippling Critical Class Feature


Rules Questions

Would the bleed damage of the feat stack with the one of the class feature (each confirmed critical causing 4d6 points of damage each round)?

page 565:

"Bleed effects do not stack with each other unless they deal different kinds of damage. When two or more bleed effects deal the same kind of damage, take the worse effect."

So, it seems that Bleeding Critical doesn't stack with Crippling Critical if you decide to apply the bleed damage (but it does stack when you apply one of the other conditions), and it doesn't stack with Bleeding Attack (Rogue talent) too.

However, Bleeding Critical can stack with itself (the Feat specifically says so, see on page 118). Better not facing a Fighter with a Scimitar/Improved Critical/Bleeding Critical...

Ah, okay. I'd probably go with dexterity damage, perfect for killing dragons.

I'd prefer a fighter with dual kukris. They might do only 1d4 compared to 1d6, but who cares if it's 1d4+22 and 1d4+15, even without any magical bonuses?
