Precise Strike Wording

Swashbuckler Playtest

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Is Precise Strike meant to automatically use Panache and apply the extra damage or should it be optional?

Basically asking if the wording should be changed to "you may deal additional precision damage" so a Swashbuckler could use a finisher without adding the extra damage if they chose.

So in a situation where a swashbuckler tries to disable a target using Targeting Finisher they don't accidentally kill them with the extra precision damage.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Remember Swashbucklers are trained in unarmed attacks. Most of the time, if you don't want to kill someone with an attack, you can just do an unarmed attack for your finisher. Unarmed does nonlethal by default.
