Great Cleave

Type of Feat: General

Prerequisite: Str 13, BAB +4, Cleave, Power attack

Required for: Overwhelming Critical

Specifics: As Cleave, except that there is no limit to the number of additional attacks that the character may make after killing one opponent.

Use: Automatic


  • Added in the Expansion packs.
  • The above feat description is misleading; Great cleave allows no limit to the number of cleaves. This only works if each cleaving attack deals a killing blow. For example, a PC fights four goblins and an orc. Round 1: the PC kills Goblin 1, prompting the character to make a Great cleave. The Great cleave strikes goblin 2, and the damage from that attack immediately kills goblin 2, prompting the PC to make a Great cleave at goblin 3. That cleaving attack kills goblin 3, letting the PC make yet another Great cleave, this time at the orc. However, that attack did not deal enough damage to kill the orc, and the PC is not allowed any further cleaves.
