View Full Version : Withstand and other abilites

Withstand are there other abilities like this for will save and con saves?

Withstand is a special ability that a Kensai gets that allows concentration checks to take place of reflex saves.

Are there other abilities that allow the same kind of thing with concentration or other type skills ?

You would be better off posting this in the forum for whatever game system you're asking about. This is the general roleplaying forum.

Assuming, you're talking about 3.5, there's the 'Moment of perfect mind' (for will saves), and 'mind over body' (for fort saves) martial maneuvers from Tome of Battle. A martial initiator can pick those up at level 1 and 5 respectively, or a non-martial initiator can pick them up with feats at level 2 and 10. Do note that these are not always on abilities, but rather abilities you can sue a limited number of times per encounter. If you pick them up with feats, you get one use per encounter, while a martial initiator can use them more often if they refresh the maneuvers.

If all of the above references to mechanics made no sense to you, I suggest you read Tome of Battle, it'll be a lot clearer.
