    Default Optimizing Critical Confirmation

    So how would I be able to optimize my Crit. Confirms? This is for an epic campaign that's homebrew welcome.

    well, warblades add their int mods to it. you need power critical, of course, for a +4 to it. also, a high attack bonus still affects that. if you threaten on every number, then what you REALLY need is a high attack bonus.

    I suspect the 'homebrew welcome' mentioned above has something - nay, everything to do with it. That said, I'm also curious!

    The Gloom Monster Class from the improved monster class thread allows you to replace the threat range with your Int. mod, and I have over 20 Int. mod.

    lol then yeah, just pick up a few levels of warblade to go with it, add that +20 int mod to your confirm roll, if that's not enough to basically guarantee a crit on every attack I don't know what is.

    Power Critical feat: +4 to confirm, can be taken multiple times to stack with itself.
    POWER CRITICAL [GENERAL]
    Prerequisites: Weapon focus (chosen weapon), base attack bonus +4
    Benefit: When using the weapon you selected, you gain a +4 bonus on the roll to confirm a threat.
    Special: A fighter may select Power Critical as one of his fighter bonus feats.
    You can gain Power Critical multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it may be with a different weapon or the same weapon. If you take it with the same weapon, the effects of the feats stack.

    Complete Warrior feat: Power Critical
    Requires: Weapon Focus with relevant weapon, BAB +4

    When using the weapon selected, you gain a +4 bonus on rolls to confirm critical with that weapon. You may take this feat multiple times, and may select the same weapon or a different one. If you take it with the same weapon, the effects stack.

    That's the only thing I know of. That said, I don't have any homebrew sources.

    Pitspawned weapons get a +2 bonus on rolls to confirm criticals. DMGII. They also have synergy to add Keen to the weapon, but it doesn't sound like you'll need it.

    Divine Power gives you a BAB equal to your level, which allows you to circumvent the BAB 20 cap post-epic.

    Victor's luck from Complete Scoundrel. You can obtain it without using a feat slot if you're willing to eat into your WBL slightly, check out the Court of Thieves on page 144 of Complete Scoundrel. Grab yourself a trinket from there, and you get a free luck feat.

    Any number except 1 of course. A 1 is always a miss and therefore cannot threaten a critical.

    Also note that a threat that doesn't hit doesn't crit, so don't forget to boost your to-hit. If you threaten on a 2+, but only hit on a 5+, then you really only threaten on a 5+, since 1-4 is a miss.
