Advice Needed for PFS Ratfolk Duo


Greetings! My son and I are leveling up a couple Ratfolk brothers and were hoping for some tips/advice on Feats to take.

Ratfolk Unchained Rogue (Knife Master)

Ratfolk Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade) 1/Investigator (Empiricist)

The concept is my character will move in first after ID'ing the enemy followed by my son who will come in and hit them hard with Sneak Attack.

I understand that not all enemies will be subject to sneak attack/precision damage so lets not focus on that particular issue. Let's try and focus on what I can do as the Investigator to help set him up for success.

Teamwork feats? We will already be "swarming" so we flank from the same square, but perhaps Outflank would be effective to increase our bonus?

Should I go with a Trip build so his target is prone as well? As a small race it will make that a bit more difficult but perhaps I can make it work.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Outflank for sure.

Infusion so you can share extracts.

Fey Obedience (magdh) if allowed by pfs is great for your character (+4 all int skills)

Sickening offensive so you can put more debuffs.

Effortless aid if you want to aid another as a move or swift.

Clever wordplay (intimidate) if you want to go that route.

Outflank is very good. Paired Opportunists + Combat Reflexes is good for this, too. Provoke chains are quite fun when you're both using 18-20 threat range weapons.

you have the pair of boons for that yes? (just checking)

The teamwork feats to synch your initiative work wonders.

Improved trip is absolutely nasty on someone helping a rogue. You move up, trip, the rogue gets a +4 to hit and then either a free attack with a sneak when they get up or +4 to ya'lls AC. And then free sneaks next round.

OK, Outflank, Paired Opportunists, and Combat Reflexes seems to be the direction we will head into for now.

I will definately be taking the Infusion ability, and hopefully finding a good potion on a chronicle sheet we could use in combination with Alchemical Allocation.

Any other ideas for after that?
