Might this be better at fighter-level, do you think? --Ghostwheel 02:38, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

I do think that might be a better fit, but I don't think it would affect my perspective enough to change it to Excellent. -- Jota 06:26, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
Eh, I don't mind--I think it's more important that things are assigned their correct balance rating than what their favor is :-) --Ghostwheel 06:29, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

The feat is good, but the kicker is replacing Clever Wrestling. Thank god, that feat, with the subsequent requirement for that PrC, blooooows.

This feat made my small disarming character useful.

This feat has a legitimate purpose and accomplishes to an extent what it sets out to do, but it seems subpar even in that regard. What I mean by that is, I don't question its usefulness across levels (a quick look at the SGT will show this will allow a Medium character focused on grappling can go about 50/50 with most larger monsters without meticulous optimization), I just think that people who are going to be avoiding grappling will do it without spending a valuable feat, and people who will be grappling will benefit more from investing resources in becoming big themselves (which helps them against the entirety of the field, not just Large and larger monsters) rather than by trying to maximize their potential at Medium size. Furthermore, there will always be a few extreme monsters that are just too strong for you to have a prayer against, in which case more traditional methods, such as freedom of movement, will still be viable, whereas this will not be.

Truly Absurd[edit]

Have you ever seen a shrunken Gnome wrestle the animated statue of Abraham Lincoln to the floor? Now you can! Well, I guess Size-based Strength modifier make this a little bit harder. --Foxwarrior 19:40, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Dat Wording Tho[edit]

The wording in the middle of the sentence is not consistent with the wording at the end of the sentence.
