Sword and Board Fighter Build Guide – Intimidation

Sword and board fighters will probably have a combination of defensive and offensive feats. My sample build attempts to strike a balance but errs on the offensive side. This build also focuses on damage. Here are some examples of how to use the feats. For example, I can use Furious Focus and Dervish Dance to help my fighters get their feet wet and start slicing!

Dervish Dance

In Sword and Board Fighter, the Dervish Dance is a move that allows you to make enemies difficult to hit by using your weapon. This ability has a damage bonus equal to your Dexterity modifier. This bonus is temporary, and you must use it on your turn in order to reap its benefits. Dervish Dance also grants you a bonus to damage rolls, which is equivalent to your Dexterity modifier, up to five times per turn.

The Dervish is a very charismatic character, but he suffers from Multiple Attribute Disorder. As a result, he doesn’t need bonuses to damage or hit, so he’ll never reach his full potential. He is also vulnerable to wards, but if you’re careful, you can use two-handed weapons to defend yourself. The Warchanter is a good choice for this character because he has a decent fort save and D12 HPs.

Furious Focus

When playing a sword and board fighter, you’re probably looking for the best possible combo between defensive and offensive feats. While the sample build attempts to achieve this balance, it’s a little on the offensive side. Using Furious Focus to maximize the power of your weapons is a great idea for any fighter. Whether you’re playing a character who’s strong at melee combat or someone who specializes in board games, this feat is a great choice.


Intimidation is an important factor in most sword and board fighter builds. Often overlooked, it can be a huge asset in a number of situations. This ability is especially useful if the fighter is “the face” of the party. In addition, it can add significant benefits to other skill-based fighters, and can even be a useful supplement for other classes. Below, we’ll take a closer look at the ability and discuss its benefits and drawbacks.

While there are some benefits to protecting yourself, you shouldn’t forget to take advantage of the other benefits that shields can provide. Shields can impose a disadvantage on attacks, and they’re particularly useful in tanking strategies. When your opponents have to choose between hitting you or hitting your ally, they’ll have to decide between hitting you or your opponent’s tough AC. This ability is also a great choice for two-weapon fighters, as it removes one of the biggest downsides of two-weapon fighting.


The most notable persuasion skill in the game is the superiority die. As a bonus action, persuasion gives you an advantage with opponents. This bonus action is particularly useful for characters that play the role of the “face” of the party, such as the main protagonist. The ability is most powerful when used in a sword and board fighter build. However, there are limitations to its use.

Performance checks

The sword and board fighter’s primary purpose is to strike enemies and cause havoc, but he is also a useful tool for determining whether the attacks you make are effective. Fights are not the only option available to players, as you can also choose any weapon modifier. Feats and other feats can improve the fighter’s utility and performance. Adding Feats to your fighter can give him new spells and abilities.
