Failed to find anything on the topic. Do Dire Charge and Stunning Shield benefits from combat mastery? From Tactics enhancment on kensei tree?From tactical mastery feats? If those are true am I capable of having 1.3 bonus from charisma using "Cormyrean Knight Training" enhancment from PDK tree ?

AFAIK, Dire Charge and Stunning Shield DCs are boosted by anything which affects Stunning Blow's DC, which includes everything you listed (presuming you have CKT-compatible weapon equipped) plus Know the Angles' DC bonus if you can squeeze it in. However, remember that Stunning Shield's to-hit is always based on STR and you can't stun what you don't hit; so keep that in mind if you're going with an unconventional (i.e., non-STR-based) Vanguard build.

EDIT: also shield bashing damage is always based on STR too.

Ty. So if i use a longsword, and CHA is my highest stat the stunning shield/dire charge that uses the highest stat to calculate its DC will use CHA but also receive the 1/3 benefit from Cormyrean Knight Training ? Using CHA as base status to calculate it DC but also a bonus of 1/3 from CHA?

Sorry to repeat, i just can't believe I can benefit two times( actually 1.3 times =p) from CHA for those abilities DC's and had to make sure.

Edit: Does it applies to know the angles? Using INT as base stat to calculate and also increasing the DC the based in INT?
