    Default Fighter Capstone: Weapon Alacrity

    With this preview, we've completed our pass through the various prestige enhancement lines and capstones.

    Fighters are the most versatile of our martial classes, and in Module Nine we've given them ways to express themselves as the master of a single weapon style through the Kensai, or a defensive bulwark that protects the party as a Stalwart Defender. Their capstone is tied to the thought that while a paladin has their faith and a ranger is tied to the wild, mastery of weapons is what fighters strive for.

    Fighter Weapon Alacrity
    Prereqs: Fighter level 20
    Cost: 2 Action Points
    Benefit: Your mastery with all weapons is such that you are able to attack faster than normal. Grants a 10% Competence bonus to attack speed with all combat styles.

    The Ranger may be faster with a bow (or specialize to match your attack speed with two weapons), and the Thief-Acrobat or Monk may wield a staff with greater speed, they all fall apart when forced from their specialized combat styles. Bow, great weapon, shield... It doesn't matter to a well trained fighter. The Kensai will still obviously prefer their chosen weapon, but will be no slouch with another style.

    As with all of the previews, this capstone is subject to change before it goes live.

    First! (my first first!)

    Just kidding... since this was posted yesterday, I'm surprized no one has posted here as of yet.

    Well, this will certainly benefit my Bastard Sword Kensai. Does competence bonus stack with haste? Is there anything it won't stack with (probably another competence bonus)?

    Default Alacrity?

    So this is really not a bad capstone for the fighters. I do like it.

    But, (you knew there was going to be a but, didn't ya?) why an alacrity bonus? Unless I am mistaken, alacrity bonuses do not stack with haste so this gets wasted every time I step into a fight with haste. Also the other combat speed bonus capstone, the ranger's Master of Archery, is a competence bonus. Which does stack with haste unless I am mistaken.

    Was this just overlooked and one of the capstones will be changed? Or are your true feelings about rangers showing through?

    It's a competence bonus, it's in the description. It's just called alacrity.

    Aclarity is not a bonus type.

    COmpetence is the TYpe. THis will indeed stack with Haste which is an enhancment bonus I believe.

    Now is tempest capped at 10% as well, if so this makes a straight twf fighter kensai a fair match for splashing tempest at the new end game

    A little on the overpowered side again, but hey since fighters are underpowered it gives offensive fighters some viability. Level 20 fighter is far better then level 19 fighter which shouldn't be the case. I am not in favor of such a powerful capstone but rather a huge influx of solid feats to improve fighters..

    Since bow strength isn't coming out this mod for fighters there is still no way to make a a solid ranged fighter. They can't compete with the rangers and their two weapon fighting and ranged capabilities for diversity either even with bow strength by the way unless you are talking about being able to shield up slightly better then rangers.

    Hahahahahaha on a personal note Norg as one of the few pure offensive fighters left in all of ddo will be able to stand up to rangers and barbarians like he always should have especially if they add a few feats like superior weapon specialization to feat options. One final note, at least pure fighters do more dps then 6 ranger/12 fighter characters..

    Interesting, so shield bashing gets a little boost as well ... a small bone to sword & board? Too bad you have to be 20th to get it, but it is better than nothing.

    Anyone else not see this in the Dev Tracker?

    Other than that, not bad.

    Jorgundal's is enhancement, the same as Haste, so yes it will stack with this, which is Competence.
