View Full Version : Questions about maneuver usage

2010-03-29, 04:34 PM
I have a few things about maneuvers that I would like to get straight.

Q1) can you initiate a Strike maneuver as part of a full attack action(like trip or disarm)? I suspect 'no'.

Q2) can you use a Boost(swift) and then use a strike(standard action or full round) in the same round.

Q3) Does changing your stance count as initiating a maneuver? (not that important if Q2 is a 'yes')

No, yes, no. However, do note that changing stances and initiating a boost takes the same action, so you can only do one or the other each round, not both.

No (unless it says so), Yes (unless it says so), No (unless it says so).

A1) No, initiating a Strike is an action (usually standard action) of its own, not simply an "attack". Some maneuvers include a full attack in its initiation (example: Time Stands Still), but they can not be combined at-will.

A2) Yes.

A3) No, changing a stance is just changing your stance. But as you said, that's not important. :smalltongue:

Some maneuvers let you charge as part of the attack. I suppose that if you had pounce, you could make a full attack, with the maneuver damage/effect tacked on to your 1st attack. :smallbiggrin:
