    Default Is it possible to finesse scimitars under the new enh pass?

    Ok Gentlefolk, I have a query for you all.

    My main character is a scimitar weilding halfling ranger atm.
    When I respec him I would like to take weapon finesse to take advantage of his dex, but scimmy is not a light weapon.
    However, one of the new enhancements allows a ranger to weild a scimmy as a light weapon.
    Does this mean that it is possible for him to retain his scimitars and use finesse on them once he has the enhancement?
    Or am I as usual missing the blindingly obvious?

    Thanks for your interest.

    Well, you are correct that you will be able to use your Dex for scimitars; however, you probably don't need to take Weapon Finesse. The enhancement that causes Scimitars to be treated as light weapons also let's you use your dexterity to attack when two-weapon fighting with light weapons. So, you should be fine without Weapon Finesse unless you plan on using a single scimitar with nothing or a shield in the off hand. Also, the next core enhancement (available at level 6) let's you use your dexterity to damage as well. So, short answer....

    Dex-based Scimitar Using Tempest = Yes.
    Weapon Finesse Needed = No.

    Hope that helps!
