Monastic Weapon Adept

Monastic Weapon Adept

In your hands, certain weapons become deadly and potent outlets for your physical prowess.

Prerequisites: Weapon Focus (any weapon with monk special weapon quality); base attack bonus +12, brawler level 8th, or monk level 8th.

Benefit: When wielding a monk weapon for which you have the corresponding weapon focus feat, you may instead use your monk or brawler unarmed strike damage to determine the base damage for that weapon. You treat your effective monk or brawler level as four levels lower than your current character level to determine your unarmed strike damage when modifying the base damage of your affected monk weapons. If the weapon normally deals more damage than this, its damage is unchanged.

This increase in damage does not affect any other aspect of the weapon, and does not increase your unarmed strike damage or give you any other monk class features due to your effective monk level. You can decide to use the weapon’s base damage instead of your adjusted unarmed strike damage. This must be declared before the attack roll is attempted.

Special: A weapon adept monk with this feat may treat his monk level as his effective monk level to determine his damage with monk weapons affected by this feat. A character with the Perfect Strike feat may make a perfect strike with monk weapons affected by this feat (instead of those listed in the Perfect Strike feat).
