Precision Damage

Rules Questions

I have only ever really seen it applied to rogues and sneak attack. What else is considered to be precision damage?

There are a few Traits that add precision damage. I know of one from Humans from Golarion but can't seem to find its name at the moment.

Some class features call out their additional damage as precision damage (read: Pistolero), but there are not that many.

Why do you ask?

I am currently playing a Stonelord and they get an ability called Stoneblood. This is what is does:

At 3rd level, a stonelord's vitals begin to calcify and her blood transforms into liquid stone. She adds her paladin level on checks to stabilize at negative hit points and gains a 25% chance to ignore a critical hit or precision damage. This does not stack with fortification armor or similar effects.

Just not entirely sure when the precision damage would come into play, so I am trying to understand more.

The teamwork feat Precise Strike is precision damage (sort of as how the name implies it)

Besides sneak attack there other traits/feats that grant it. For example the teamwork feat Precise Strike will give you a precision damage dice.

A Duelist precise strike is precision damage.

I don't have a comprehensive list; however, something that deals precision damage will always spell it out as being precision damage.

Yeah, it's not common. If something is Precision Damage it should specifically say so. Just make your GM aware.

Good deal. This is very helpful...thanks everyone!
