Feats - Disarm feat found in whips redundant?
« on: July 23, 2008, 10:20:29 AM »
I'm biased since I'm a whip user, but it's been on my mind since I made Noica and I've been thinking: correct me if I'm wrong, but all classes get Disarm and Knockdown on level 2 here on the server, right?

I'm thinking it's redundant to have all whips give the disarm feat if everyone is already getting it for free regardless of class and weapon. Having a whip should give a character Improved Disarm since everyone already has Disarm or maybe just remove the feat from the whip.

Makes sense to me.  Besides, it's already hard enough to disarm using a small weapon to do the disarming with, and whips are supposed to be good at it.

I'd be for the replacing/adding Improved Disarm to the weapon template for it.  If that is possible.  Otherwise it does sort of Cheapen the weapon.

Pretty sure the Disarm feat is there as a NWN default for all whips. Personally, it makes more sense for everyone to have the Knockdown feat, than the Disarm feat.

    In the same sense what about that Kara-something sword.  It is a magical sword with that has x uses of the knockdown feat.
