    Default Revised Feats Revisited (Fighter Feats Edition)

    About a year back or so on the Brilliant Gameologists forums I went through about 100+ feats from the PHB, PHB2, and the complete series and redesigned them. I wanted to make them a) more interesting, b) more powerful for warrior-types, a c) more fun. It's an okay effort, although I'm not 100% happy with the results I got with many of the feats. I suppose it's time I tried again.

    This time my initial goal is to add Fighter-Only benefits to feats that are on the Fighter's list of bonus feats. The goal is to hopefully, with probably some minor tweaking, make the normal "All-I-Get-Is-Feats" Fighter actually playable. After I've done that, who knows?

    Any feats below that are not labelled "As SRD" have been altered from the printed feats.

    Let's begin!

    Special: If you are a Fighter of at least 6th level you need not have a free hand and may even deflect unusual weapons and spells with this feat.

    Improved Grapple
    (I'm choosing to ignore this for now. Grappling is a whole 'nother monster with problems of its own.)

    Snatch Arrows
    (I'm choosing to ignore this feat entirely. Ask your DM if you can catch stuff with the Deflect Arrows feat, because that's not worth spending a feat on.)

    Benefit: A number of times per day equal to 1/2 your character level you may declare an attack to be a stunning blow before you roll the attack (unarmed attacks only if you possess the Improved Unarmed Strike feat, otherwise the attack must be made with the weapon you chose with the Weapon Focus feat).

If you are a Fighter of at least 4th level whenever you hit a foe with a ranged weapon during your turn you threaten that foe for the purposes of making attacks of opportunity. That foe never provokes an attack of opportunity for leaving one of your threatened squares unless it would also move beyond your weapon's range increment.

    Precise Shot
    Prerequisites: None
    Benefit: As SRD, but in addition, when you shoot or throw ranged weapons at a grappling opponent, you automatically strike at the opponent you have chosen.
    Special: If you are a Fighter of at least 1st level ignore partial cover and concealment of your targets, and reduce any other miss chance they may have by 20%.

    Brutal Throw
    This is no longer a feat. Any character can elect to use their Strength modifier in place of their Dexterity modifier to determine their attack bonus with any thrown weapon

    Combat Intuition
    Prerequisites: Sense Motive 9 ranks, Survival 9 ranks
    Benefit: At the start of your turn you may make a Sense Motive check against any creature you threaten as a free action as if you were making a Knowledge check to identify a creature and its special powers or vulnerabilities and at the same DC as the appropriate Knowledge check. Additionally, once per round whenever you are struck by a confirmed critical hit you may make a Survival check (DC 15 + the CR of the creature that confirmed the critical) to negate the critical hit and take only the normal damage.
    Special: If you are a Fighter of at least 1st level you may ignore this feat's prerequisites. Further add the Sense Motive and Survival skills to your class skill list.

    DISCLAIMER: Also, I'm aware that this series of feats makes the level 1 Fighter dip even more attractive than ever before. I'm planning on going through the other books like I did last time and with the slew of "improved" feats there should be plenty of higher level Fighter-only benefits. I'll probably also go through the stuff below and make some of the Fighter-only benefits require more Fighter levels.
