Quivering Palm

Quivering Palm


The monk delivers a fatal attack by sending waves of vibrations through the target with an open hand strike. The attack costs 30 Ki, and if it hits the victim must pass a Fortitude save (DC 10 + monk level/2 + Wisdom modifier) or die.


  • Quivering Palm may be used with any Monk weapons.
  • Quivering Palm benefits from effects that specifically buffs "Tactical DCs", such as Legendary Tactics from Legendary Dreadnought or from a Battle Trance, but not from Combat Mastery items. *todo: big list of such effects*
  • Whenever an enemy saves vs. Quivering Palm, you get a stacking +4 bonus to your Quivering Palm DC. This stack is dispelled when you successfully kill someone with Quivering Palm (or 3 minutes pass).

This ability emulates other death spells, so deathblock or death ward both grant immunity. Unlike the Assassin's Assassinate ability, using Quivering Palm will drop you out of Sneak and remove any Invisibility effects.
