Faith Hunter Abilities

Inquisitor Proficiencies

An inquisitor is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the longbow, shortbow, and the favored weapon of her deity. She is also proficient with light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).


Starting at 1st level, an inquisitor can pronounce judgment upon her foes as a swift action. Starting when the judgment is made, the inquisitor receives a bonus or special ability based on the type of judgment made.
At 1st level, an inquisitor can use this ability once per day. At 4th level and every three levels thereafter, the inquisitor can use this ability one additional time per day. Once activated, this ability lasts until the combat ends, at which point all of the bonuses immediately end.
When the inquisitor uses this ability, she must select one type of judgment to make. As a swift action, she can change this judgment to another type.

Second Judgement

At 8th level, whenever an inquisitor uses her judgment ability, she selects two different judgments, instead of one. This only consumes one use of her judgment ability. As a swift action, she can change one of these judgments to another type.

Exploit Weakness

At 14th level, the inquisitor learns to take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself. Whenever the inquisitor scores a critical hit, she ignores any damage reduction the target might have. In addition, if the target has regeneration, the creature loses regeneration or the round following the critical hit and can die normally during that round. Creatures whose regeneration always functions are immune to this ability.


True Judgement

At 20th level, an inquisitor can call true judgment down upon a foe during combat. Whenever an inquisitor uses her judgment ability, the inquisitor can invoke true judgment on a foe as a swift action. Once declared, the inquisitor can make a single attack. If the attack hits, it deals damage normally and the target must make a Fortitude save or die. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the inquisitor's level + the inquisitor's Wisdom modifier. Regardless of whether or not the save is made, the target creature is immune to the inquisitor's true judgment ability for 24 hours.


Inquisitors can cast a number of orisons, or 0-level spells. These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again.

Stern Gaze

Inquisitors are skilled at sensing deception and intimidating their foes. An inquisitor receives a morale bonus on all Persuasion skill checks made for intimidation and Perception checks equal to 1/2 her inquisitor level (minimum +1).

Cunning Initiative

At 2nd level, an inquisitor adds her Wisdom modifier on initiative checks, in addition to her Dexterity modifier.


Solo Tactics

At 3rd level, all of the inquisitor's allies are treated as if they possessed the same teamwork feats as the inquisitor for the purpose of determining whether the inquisitor receives a bonus from her teamwork feats. Her allies do not receive any bonuses from these feats unless they actually possess the feats themselves. The allies' positioning and actions must still meet the prerequisites listed in the teamwork feat for the inquisitor to receive the listed bonus.


At 5th level, an inquisitor can imbue one of her weapons with the bane weapon special ability as a swift action.
A bane weapon excels against certain foes. Against a designated foe, the weapon's enhancement bonus is +2 better than its actual bonus. It also deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against such foes. This ability only functions while the inquisitor wields the weapon. If dropped or taken, the weapon resumes granting this ability if it is returned to the inquisitor before the duration expires.
This ability lasts for a number of rounds per day equal to the inquisitor's level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.


At 11th level, an inquisitor can use mental and physical resiliency to avoid certain attacks. If she makes a Fortitude or Will saving throw against an attack that has a halved damage on a successful save, she instead avoids the damage entirely. This ability can only be used if the inquisitor is wearing light armor, medium armor, or no armor.

Greater Bane

At 12th level, whenever an inquisitor uses her bane ability, the amount of bonus damage dealt by the weapon against creatures of the selected type increases to 4d6.


Teamwork Feat

At 3rd level, and every three levels thereafter, the inquisitor gains a bonus feat in addition to those gained from normal advancement. These bonus fez must be selected from those listed as teamwork feats. The inquisitor must meet the prerequisites of the selected bonus feat.

Third Judgement

At 16th level, whenever an inquisitor uses her judgment ability, she selects three different judgments, instead of just two. This only consumes one use of her judgment ability. As a swift action, the inquisitor can change one of these judgments to another type.

Sworn Enemy - Smite

At 6th level, once per day as a swift action, a faith hunter can smite one foe she can see. If the foe is of the faith hunter’s sworn enemy alignment, the faith hunter gains a +4 sacred bonus on attack rolls against that foe and a sacred bonus equal to half her inquisitor level on damage rolls made against the foe. Smites against targets of the faith hunter’s sworn enemy alignment automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess. If the faith hunter targets a creature that is not of her sworn enemy alignment, the smite is wasted with no effect.
The smite effect remains until the foe is dead or the next time the faith hunter rests and regains her uses of this ability. At 10th level and every 4 inquisitor levels thereafter, a faith hunter can smite her enemies one additional time per day, to a maximum of four times per day at 18th level.

Sworn Enemy

A faith hunter chooses a single alignment that directly opposes her own along either the law/chaos axis or the good/evil axis. Creatures of this alignment are her sworn enemies.
