View Full Version : Ascetic rogue feat

Feat in complete adventurer.

In the table on page 104 it says that - monk and rogue levels stack for sneak attack damage. (moderately useful, might make playing a monk a tad easier)

In the text on page 106 - it says that your levels in rogue will get the benefit for monks unarmed damage(not so useful) and no mention of sneak attack.

So what does the feat get - sneak attack damage for monk, unarmed damage increase for rogue or both?

Just unarmed damage. The description on page 104 must be a misprint.

Text trumps table, but in this case, I'm sure that it's not too much of a boost for the poor monk/rogue to get both. They already need every stat except maybe charisma, they could at least get some neat abilities.

If I was DMing, I'd give you both. Ask your DM.

Well my DM kinda has the delusion that monk is actually a powerful class :D :D

You get both.

Generally text trumps table. However, in this case the text doesn't specifically say anything that contradicts the table, it just neglects to mention an additional bonus that the table mentions. I would say that the table stands, since it's not contradicted by anything in the text.
