Single Weapon Fighting


While Single Weapon Fighting, you gain +10% Combat Style bonus to attack speed and +2 Combat Style bonus to Melee Power.

Single Weapon Fighting: Requires fighting with a single one-handed weapon, and wielding only an orb, runearm, or nothing in your offhand.

Does not function in animal forms.


  • Common misconception is that you can wear a shield and still benefit from this feat. You cannot wear a shield and benefit from the single weapon fighting feats unless the third tier Swashbuckler enhancement Skirmisher is taken and the character is single weapon fighting in the Swashbuckling Stance. Then a buckler can be used in the offhand.
  • The Single Weapon Fighting feat and Two Handed Fighting feat cannot be taken by the same character. The Single Weapon Fighting feat is mutually exclusive with the Two Handed Fighting feat. Single Weapon Fighting is also mutually exclusive with Two Weapon Fighting.

Bug: Right now it does allow a ranger to get both, but it's a bug, and will be fixed soon.

  • Unlike the 3.5 PnP version of this feat, your weapon of choice is not limited to light weapons.
  • The Single Weapon Fighting feats do not apply to thrown weapons.
