    Default Sireth and Fighter feats

    So, I got that Sireth doesn't do bludgeoning damage and, even so, it uses IC bludgeoning..
    Now, I made a TA-kensei build and recently I started questioning myself about all the feats I took to get all the Weapon specialization enhancements, like Weapon focus (blud), Weapon specialization (blud) and Greater Weapon Focus (blud)..

    Do THEY work with Sireth? Or they're unusefull to me? :/

    Sireth for most purposes is treated as a quarterstaff. IC : blunt and weapon spec blunt are the proper choices.
    I do not know if it qualifies for pulverizer as I haven't gotten my EDs farmed up on my acrobat yet

    According to the wiki, it doesn't, although I couldn't say if that info is still valid.

    I think things like Sireth would be a bit easier to understand if the ability were printed on the weapon an not just written on the DR bypass line. Think of it like the old transmuting ability. Sireth itself is a quarterstaff and affected by all quarterstaff abilities, including improved crit bludgeon and weapon focus bludgeon as those feats specifically state "quarterstaff" which Sireth qualifies for. However, the DR bypass is non standard. It actually deals slashing damage and this is the stage where the pulverizer ability checks. Pulverizer doesn't care what weapon type you're using, just what form of DR bypass you have. If you deal bludgeoning damage, pulverizer will work. I've been told pulverizer also works on Bow of the Silver Flame, though I've not actually tested it myself.

    Has anyone tested pulverizer with AA morphic arrows?

    It would make more sense if feats also used weapon groups like the Kensai enhancements, so Sireth would work with Druidic Weapons, Maces and Clubs or Martial Arts.
