Will you get glancing blows from a triggered Cleave?

I can't tell for sure but I'd say probably not. At least I don't seem to get glancing blows with my quaterstaves. On another hand, I don't have any THF feats (I do get glancing blows on my 3rd staff "regular" swing though).

Nope. Cleave is it's own separate attack, independent from the attack chain (where glancing blows occur).

However, Cleave provides for full hits on all targets. So, instakills such as Vorpal, Disruption, Smiting have a chance to process on all hits. There's nothing like Cleaving with a Disruptor and seeing 5 undead flash green. :D

Thanks for the confirmation. It's what I figured but when someone asked me today I wasn't 100%
