Improved Single Weapon Fighting


Your Single Weapon Fighting bonus is increased to a +20% Combat Style bonus to attack speed and +4 Combat Style bonus to Melee Power. You now apply +25% more of your appropriate ability score modifier to your damage, instead of just your ability score. (For instance, you add 1.25 times your Strength modifier as damage, similar to Two Handed Fighting. For Bastard Sword and Dwarven Waraxe, this adds to their axisting 10% bonus.)

Does not function in animal forms.


  • Unlike most other bonuses, a Balance skill tome counts towards your total ranks for the purpose of qualifying for this fear. For example, a character with a +3 Balance tome would only need to get 1 rank in Balance in order to take this feat.
  • Fighters may select this feat as one of their fighter bonus feats.
