We are close to leveling now and I've played the character for 3 sessions now.
Its been a decent face character - not outstanding - but can hold his own.
Its a good combatant.
It sucks at damage.
Str 13, Dex 18, Con 12, Int 12, Wis 8, Cha 14.
Weapon Focus: Rapier
Trait: Fencer and Absolom Hotspur
The new riposte rules give me a hit most rounds but I generally do 3-4 points. It takes a hit and a riposte to drop a Kobold.
My friends the BloodRager and the Brawler? They do a minimum of 7-8 points of damage a hit and tear everything apart.
At early levels I am really valuing the weapon finesse because now I don't suck at hitting. But my damage dealing potential is pretty weak.
Human (2nd feat is in a non optimal area which I just re-discovered I am not eligible for - some alterations needed there so MAY pick up Pwr Attack before next session [Still level 1], but didn't have it for the purposes of the play test)
I hit about the same frequency. My hits wound. Their hits tend to kill... outright.
The Brawler has only 10 Con in favour of 16 Dex and so the Brawler and I are both reasonably high in the initiative order.
