    Default Tricky uses for class abilities

    So i'm curious of everyone's smart ass uses for class skills that were surprisingly effective.
    Example, I used a flying ability mixed with water balloons filled with holy water to remove a forward unit of undead.

    So I wanna hear 'em.

    Spells, special abilities, class skills, feats, etc.

    Well... once somebody wanted to equip their monk (ie: speedy gonzales) with a gnomish-made flamethrower. Strafe whole armies, setting everything under the world (Yes, under. It was Bitopia) on fire. The DM said no.


    A common thing we do is use Wall of Iron as a weapon of mass destruction. Cast it on a mountainside, unmoored to the ground, and suddenly you have this freaky metal abomination going down the mountainside at a billion miles an hour. The first time it was used as such, we ripped our way halfway through the fortress downhill. Then we cast the spell a couple of more times just to make sure.

    Oh. And do NOT try sledding on one of those things. They tumble. Don't even bother rolling for damage. Or looking for a corpse besides a mile-long red smear. DMs ought to warn you about that sort of thing.


    And a favorite is to have your party rogue reverse-pickpocket explosives and other such crap into the bags of people you don't like.


    Ask the DM if a coral reef is considered one organism or many... without hinting that anything is up. If he says one, immediately cast awaken on it.

    Not exactly a class skill, but use of flying paladin to drop high-dex fighter on enemies from above.

    It's sadly slipped to the archives, but this thread has some nice ideas.
