Ascetic Style and Hex Strike / Revelation Strike?


Rules Questions


Can Hex Strike or Revelation Strike be used in conjunction with Ascetic Style to channel hexes/revelations through a melee weapon? If so, it seems like it might be a decent option for the right sort of character, especially since quarterstaff is on the list of weapons that can be used with Ascetic Style. Maybe a Wood Oracle (Spirit Guide) taking advantage of Wood Bond, or a Magus (Hexcrafter/Staff Magus).

Choose one weapon from the monk fighter weapon group. While using this style and wielding the chosen weapon, you can apply the effects of feats that have Improved Unarmed Strike as a prerequisite, as well as effects that augment an unarmed strike, as if attacks with the weapon were unarmed attacks.

When you gain this feat, choose one revelation that you can use to affect no more than one opponent. If you make a successful unarmed strike against an opponent, in addition to dealing your unarmed strike damage, you can use a swift action to deliver the effects of the chosen revelation to that opponent. Doing so provokes no attacks of opportunity.

Ascetic Style cares about feats that have Improved Unarmed Strike in their prerequisites, which both Revelation Strike and Hex Strike have. It also cares about effects that augment unarmed strikes, which both feats do.

I don't think you will encounter any resistance in combining them.


That's what I thought. I just seem to recall some kerfuffle over the similarly-worded Feral Combat Training a while back, so I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some FAQ or whatever.
