Whirling Dervish (L20 Fighter)[edit]

The whirling dervish is a desert inspired template whose sole ability is to deal as much damage as possible with twin scimitars. With a high strength, the use of power attack, the dervish can deal extreme punishing cleaving and great cleaving when enemies surround him. In order to stay alive, a good AC is thus important. When facing a single opponent, the dervish can pull a nasty one on the mob with stunning blow. A successful stun allows 6 seconds of criticals, there is little chance the mob can survive. With such devastating attacks, the agro generated is huge but serves little importance when the dervish hits up his haste boost to speed up the ferocity of his attacks. Be it solo or in a party, the dervish is a indeed a mighty whirlwind of destruction.
