View Full Version : Faster Intimidate (3.5)

2009-05-30, 06:52 PM
Is there a cheap way to Intimidate faster, for example as a move-equivalent action? I know Avenging Executioner does that at level 2 but I'd like to know if there is a feat that can do that as well.

The fearsome armor property (from Drow of the Underdark) gives you the ability to demoralize as a move action (and a +5 enhancement bonus on Intimidate checks) for only 5,000gp. And because it's helpful, here's the WotC CharOp board's Project Demoralize (http://forums.gleemax.com/wotc_archive/index.php/t-911167), which has everything you need to know about building a super-intimidator.

I know of no such feat, but Zhentarim Fighter (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/we/20060327a) gets such abilities. Feats exist to otherwise do intimidating linked to other actions though; Intimidating Rage [CWar] allows you to Intimidate as you Rage, Intimidating Strike [PHBII] allows a standard action strike + intimidate, Intimidate The Enemy [Dragon Magazine XXX] allows intimidating favored enemy as a move action, Resounding Blow [BoED] allows forcing Will-save vs. Cower from opponents you crit and Frightful Presence [Draconomicon]...well, gives you Frightful Presence (beware that it only affects lower HD opponents though so not useful against tougher enemies).
