    Default Running Start

    Hey all, so my arena barbarian of doom (Actually not that good) is ready to level up to second after his current match

    Character Sheet Here

    I think I am going warblade for my next level.

    I really like the Jump as a swift action boost as my jump mod is normally +34 or so durring a game.

    Is there an easy way to make all jumps count as if you have a running start?

    Also anyone famillier with Warblades please feel free to look at my character and give any advice, I was thinking of re-training out of blade proof skin.

    Thanks for the help.

    Offhand, there was a Tiger Claw stance, but that won't help you for a long while. Other than that, I can only think of some class features (ninja?).

    I believe there is a feat called "Leap of the Heavens" in the PHB 2.

    Doesn't make all Jumps count as running starts. It makes it so you don't double the DCs for standing jumps, and get a +5 bonus to running jumps.

    All that I say applies only to myself. You author your own actions and choices. I cannot and will not be responsible for you, nor are you for me, regardless of situation or circumstance.

    Ninja class learns that.

    But isn't doubled DC the only penalty for jumping without running start?

    (Since counter-intuitively you get to add your speed bonus to the jump check even when you don't get a running start.)

    I have no idea, I don't know the Jump rules that well. I just posted what the feat did. It might? But, it doesn't specifically make you count as having a running start, in case that's relevant for some feats/class abilities. I find precise wording matters a great deal in this game.
