Retort - Missing some options


Swashbuckler Playtest


In the playtest there are currently only 2 Retorts, neither of which can reliably trigger (Opportune Riposte and Cheat Death), yet there are 2 feats that grant you extra Reactions to use Retorts.

I feel like without more Retort options in the final book, there would be very few incentives to pick up Reflexive Riposte and Infinite Retorts, given the lack of retorts available for use.

Uh, the incentive is that you can use your original Reaction for the other Reaction abilities you might have, such as Charmed Life or Attack of Opportunity.

And being a frontliner Cheat Death will certainly be "reliably" triggered.

Thanks, I was confused about the use of those feats as well.
