Aldori Swordlord Abilities in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous covers all the special abilities, be it passive or active, that one of the thirteen Prestige Classes of the game possesses.



Aldori Swordlord Class Features/Abilities


Deft Strike

An swordlord can add his Dexterity bonus (if any) to damage rolls made with a dueling sword instead of his Strength bonus. This bonus on damage rolls applies whether the swordlord is wielding a dueling sword one-handed or two-handed. An swordlord cannot use this ability if he is wielding a shield or using an off-hand weapon (including armor spikes, unarmed strikes, or natural weapons).

Display Weapon Prowess

At 2nd level, an Aldori swordlord adds a bonus equal to half his class level on Persuasion skill checks made to intimidate. He also gains an additional +1 bonus on Persuasion skill checks made to intimidate while using Dazzling Display with a dueling sword for each of the following feats he has with the dueling sword: Greater Weapon Focus, Greater Weapon Specialization, Improved Critical, Weapon Focus, or Weapon Specialization.

Defensive Parry

At 3rd level, an Aldori swordlord gains a +1 bonus to his AC against melee attacks when making a full attack with a dueling sword. This AC bonus increases to +2 at 7th level. If an Aldori swordlord is also a fighter with the Aldori defender fighter archetype, levels in this class stack with his fighter levels when determining the AC bonus from this ability.


Adaptive Tactics

At 4th level, an Aldori swordlord learns to adapt his fighting style to counter his enemy's strengths. An Aldori swordlord reduces the attack roll penalty for fighting defensively or using Combat Expertise by 1 at 4th level and by 2 at 8th level.\nIn addition, after a creature attacks an Aldori swordlord for the first time, he attempts a Perception check (DC = 10 + the opponent's base attack bonus). If successful, the Aldori swordlord gains a +2 circumstance bonus on attack rolls and to his AC against that creature until the end of combat.

Shatter Confidence

At 5th level, an Aldori swordlord attempts a Persuasion skill check to intimidate and demoralize his target as a free action after he confirms a critical hit or succeeds at a disarm, or sunder combat maneuver with a dueling sword. If his target is already shaken, the Aldori swordlord can once per round attempt a Persuasion check to Intimidate and demoralize the target further after any successful melee attack or combat maneuver. If he succeeds at this check, the target suffers an additional -1 penalty on attack rolls and saving throws, and loses all morale bonuses to these checks.

Dexterous Duelist

At 7th level, an Aldori swordlord does not provoke attacks of opportunity when standing up from prone.


Greater Saving Slash

At 9th level, an Aldori swordlord's saving slash has a 50% chance of reducing a critical hit to a normal hit.

Confounding Duelist

At 10th level, the penalty from Aldori swordlord's shatter confidence increases to -2. The target also loses all insight and competence bonuses to these checks.

Saving Slash

At 6th level, when wielding a dueling sword, an Aldori swordlord can try deflecting a critical hit targeting him, reducing its damage to that of a normal hit, with a 25% chance of success. This does not stack with the fortification special ability of magical armor or similar effects.
