View Full Version : Overwhelming critical not working

Title says it all, the epic (quite expensive) feat overwhelming critical is still not working. Being on of the more powerfull and special feats of the few epic ones id really like to see this one fixed.

I tested bludgeoning (with handwraps) and and slashing (greataxe) definately no increase on 19 or 20.

If anyone thinks his crits work correctly, it would be nice to know, perhaps it is weapon or subfeat related.

Turbine has been exploring the placebo effect recently by adding multiple feats and abilities that sound really cool, but don't actually do anything. I think they want to see if we like pretend power of if we'll only be satisfied with feats actually doing what they say. Hopefully this will be fixed soon (maybe with 14.2?).

The three weapon-type specific Overwhelming Critical feats have been merged into a single feat that affects all weapons used by the character. Weapon Focus is no longer required:

Overwhelming Critical
Prerequisite: Cleave, Great Cleave, Improved Critical (bludgeoning, piercing, slashing, ranged, or thrown)
Benefit: When rolling a 19 or 20 on an attack your critical damage multiplier is increase by +1.

The reduced costs are nice, but its still way to expensive for not working at all :rolleyes:

You keep this up they're going to change the official description so that it says "+1 threat range".

But I for one appreciate the testing. Good job! :)
