Katars not finessable?
« on: November 05, 2015, 01:24:31 AM »
Out of curiosity, are katars not meant to be affected by weapon finesse?  Playing a rogue who has weapon finesse, I was surprised to find that his katar did not benefit from the feat.  As a smaller weapon, it would make sense for these weapons to be finesseable. I would also thank the sais, tofans, bak-kauns (claw weapons) and other similar weapons would as well.  Maybe it has something to do with them being CEP weapons?

I believe you are correct. There is no property I can find that allows a weapon to be marked for finesse. Only the base weapons have it hard-coded on the weapon finesse feat, I assume.

Weapon Finesse is hard-coded, and it cannot be altered to work on custom weapons.

Yes, I learned that lesson the hard way with my rogue a long time ago trying to fight with backstabbers.  The noob I was, it tool me forever to figure out why I was missing so often.

I could have sworn those assassin daggers were added in an official expansion pack
