Improved ki strike 5

Type of feat: general (available every three level-ups) (epic)
Prerequisite: monk, improved ki strike 4

Specifics: The monk's unarmed attack counts as a +5 magic weapon against creatures with damage reduction.

Use: automatic


  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • This feat does not provide an attack bonus; it merely allows an unarmed character to penetrate X/+5 damage reduction.
  • Magic gloves with an attack bonus also allow an unarmed character to penetrate damage reduction, often making this feat superfluous.

Custom content notes[]

  • A custom class must have this feat in their feat list, or that class will not be able to select it as a general feat.
  • The monk class technically is not a prerequisite for this feat, but without custom content it is effectively a prerequisite as that is the only standard way to get improved ki strike 4.
