    Default Warblade (4e) Class

    This is my (hopefully lovably-)pathetic attempt at a not-completely-unbelievably-horrible martial controller based on the 3.5 Tome of Battle class.
    I know it’s rough for now, but maybe with community feedback it’ll become shiny and special and people might actually use it?
    Presenting for fair and honest critique: the Warblade class!

    Edit: There was a doc link, now having to paste into following posts due to my failed Knowledge: Google Docs check.

    Creating a Warblade (DRAFT)

    Bloodthirsty Warblade
    You use two weapons to debilitate multiple threats at once while on the move, or focus on staying mobile and penalize your enemies for trying to keep up. Your enemies might think they have an advantage in large numbers, but you prove them wrong by using their allies’ positioning against them. Your powers use Strength, so that should be your highest ability score. Since you need to stay mobile to avoid the wrath of your many foes, you should wear light armor, which means your Intelligence score should be your next highest score. Wisdom should be your third-highest score, though it isn’t as important to you as it is to the Champion Warblade. Choose powers that reflect your preference for mobility and multi-target penalties.
    • Suggested feat: Battle Cunning (Human feat: Action Surge)
    • Suggested skills: Athletics; History, Perception, Stealth
    • Suggested Discipline: Tiger Claw
    • Suggested at will powers: Sapphire Nightmare Blade, Wolf Fang Strike (Human at will: Blood in the Water)
    • Suggested daily power: Claw at the Moon

    Champion Warblade
    You are an expert of almost all battlefields, driven to combat by the need to constantly increase your prowess. You are versatile, capable of excelling at both single combat and joining a team to face enemy hordes. Your highest ability score should be Strength, since that determines most of your powers’ attack and damage. Since you revel at being in the center of a fight, you tend to wear heavy armor, so your Wisdom score should be your second-highest score. Since Intelligence is still important for your Reflex defense, as well as being increasing the benefit of many Warblade class feats, that should be your next highest score. The powers you select need to keep one or more foes in the thick of the fight with you, while allowing your allies to best take their roles against each opponent.
    • Suggested feat: Battle Meditation (Human feat: Battle Inspiration)
    • Suggested skills: Athletics; Endurance, Insight, Religion
    • Suggested Discipline: Iron Heart
    • Suggested at will powers: Punishing Stance, Stone Bones (Human at will: Steely Strike)
    • Suggested daily power: Mountain Hammer

    Warblade Class Features (FIRST REVISION)

    Blockade
    When an adjacent enemy attempts to use a blast or burst power, you can cause one of the following effects as an immediate interrupt:
    The size of the power is reduced by 1, to a minimum of 1.

    Discipline Student
    You gain one of the following features of your choice:
    • Diamond Mind Student- A creature you hit with a Warblade power takes a penalty on its first saving throw against that power equal to your Intelligence modifier.
    • Iron Heart Student- Your Warblade powers gain the Invigorating keyword. Add your Intelligence modifier to the temporary HP you receive from the Invigorating keyword.
    • Stone Dragon Student- Your Warblade powers ignore an amount of resistance equal to your Wisdom modifier and treat immunity as resist 40 for this purpose. When using a Warblade power, you can slide one target you hit 1 square.
    • Tiger Claw Student- Your Warblade powers gain the Rattling keyword.

    Initiate’s Poise
    Instead of gaining encounter powers, you gain a reservoir of personal control — represented in the game as poise points — that you can use to add a special flourish to an attack you make using a Warblade power. You pay for the flourish with poise points after any targets of the attack are declared (if any) but before attack rolls are made, and you can only add a flourish to an attack once per round. You start with 2 poise points per short rest or extended rest. You gain 1 additional poise point per short rest or extended rest at levels 3, 7, 13, 17, 23, and 27.
    The options you can add as a flourish are limited by your level as described, and cost a number of poise points as shown in parenthesis:
    1st level flourish —
    • Mountain Tombstone Strike (1 poise points)
    If your attack hits, you gain a power bonus to the damage roll against one target equal to your Strength modifier and that target must succeed on a saving throw or be blinded and deafened until the start of your next turn.
    3rd level flourish —
    • Strike of Perfect Clarity (2 poise points)
    If your attack hits, you gain a power bonus to the damage roll against one target equal to your Strength modifier and that target must succeed on a saving throw or be dazed until the start of your next turn.
    13th level flourish —
    • Time Stands Still (3 poise points)
    If your attack hits, you gain a power bonus to the damage roll against one target equal to your Strength modifier and that target must succeed on a saving throw or be stunned until the start of your next turn.
    23rd level flourish —
    • Feral Death Blow (4 poise points)
    If your attack hits, you gain a power bonus to the damage roll against one target equal to your Strength modifier and that target must succeed on a saving throw or be dominated by you until the start of your next turn.

    Martial Study
    You gain an additional Warblade at will attack power of your choice at levels 7 and 17.

    Weapon Aptitude
    You gain proficiency with one superior melee weapon and one superior ranged weapon of your choice.

    Discipline Savant
    At 3rd level, when you add a flourish to an attack, you can make a saving throw against one condition affecting you that a save can end.

    Savant’s Poise
    At 13th level, you regain 1 spent poise point when you succeed on a saving throw.

    Discipline Master
    At 17th level, when you add a flourish to an attack, your flourish affects any creatures you score a critical hit against, in addition to the selected target.

    Master’s Poise
    At 23rd level, you regain 1 spent poise point when you score a critical hit against a creature.

    Hm, I always saw it as

    crusader - defender
    swordsage - controller (they're "blade wizards" after all)
    warblade - striker

    which would still keep them contrasted with fighter.

    I would make it a separate power source: Sublime, or Sublime Way, or Ki if you want to make it explicitly easternized. Crusader would probably take some fluff alteration to differentiate it from 4e's paladin which is more similar to it than 3rd's.

    Another way to do this -- which I'd do since it's way less work -- would be to simply modify existing classes. Esoteric training represented by a feat or ACF that gives you the option of choosing from alternate power sets, which may or may not have their own refresh mechanic -- and whose mechanical function would be to provide role flexibility, eg fighter could take strikery or controllery powers

    I agree, but this was supposed to roll them all up into one class.

    I mostly didn’t see the need to separate it into its own keyword (that has no support, to boot).

    I could have, but I really wanted to create my own full-blown class. One that, once fixed, would be balanced so well that it’d be acceptable to bring one to a home game.

    Defense bonus should be +2 to one stat or +1 to two stats, three is too much.
    Defender-level hitpoints and more surges than a Fighter is too much IMO.

    Are you trying to design this as an Essentials-based class? That's what it seems like from the rest.
