When fighting with the Tiger Claw discipline’s preferred weapons, you can use a variety of combat options that maximize the benefits of wielding two weapons.
Prerequisite: Two-Weapon Fighting, base attack bonus +6, two Tiger Claw maneuvers.
Benefit: The Reaping Talons feat enables the use of three tactical options.
- Focused Assault: To use this option, you must fi ght defensively, use the total defense action, or use the Combat Expertise feat to gain a +3 bonus to AC in return for a –3 penalty on attack rolls. You must also wield any two preferred weapons of the Tiger Claw discipline and move no more than 5 feet. Keep track of each opponent that attacks you after you take that action. On your next turn, as a full-round action, you can make a single melee attack against each of the opponents that attacked you on the previous round at your highest attack bonus. You must still threaten the enemies you attack with this option.
- Cornered Predator: To use this option, you must hit your foe with two attacks that each use one of the one-handed or light preferred weapons of the Tiger Claw discipline (kukri, kama, handaxe, unarmed strike, or claw). On your next turn, you gain a +2 bonus on attack rolls against this foe for each opponent that threatens you.
- Talon Shield: To use this option, you must hit the your foe with two attacks that each use one of the preferred onehanded or light weapons of the Tiger Claw discipline (kukri, kama, handaxe, unarmed strike, or claw). On your next turn, if you fight defensively or use the total defense action, you gain a +2 shield bonus to AC against that foe (in addition to the normal AC bonus granted by that action).
