View Full Version : Intimidate Boost?

2010-11-22, 02:26 AM
I am using a character that uses intimidate in combat most of the time because he can basically auto intimidate anything of his level. I was just wondering if there was a feat or some rule that I can use to increase the amount of fear I strike into my opponents (aka make it so that I get a better effect than shaken through a successful check)?

There are a couple guides around, if you look, but the best thing you can get is from Drow of the Underdark. Its a feat called Imperious Command, which pretty much makes for cower for 1 round, THEN suffer the normal effects of intimidate. If you can stack another, longer duration fear on top of that cower effect, the cower will last for the full duration of the secondary effect due to how fear effects stack. Its a good thing.

^ This, plus the Never Outnumbered skill trick, plus Zentarim Fighter ACF or CW Samurai...someone else will explain in detail...

I remember Shneekey (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=125885) did some silly things with Intimidate once...

:smalleek: Imperious Command is really good. That should work really well. But any other suggestions will help. Also this is a pathfinder game so if that opens more options please post those.

The Pathfinder feat is called Intimidating Prowess and it lets you add your Str mod and Cha mod to Intimidate checks -not exactly what you were wanting but useful none the less
