You can deftly move up to a foe, strike, and withdraw before he can react.

Prerequisites: BAB +6, Dodge (Feat), Mobility (Feat)

Unlocks: Friendly Switch (Feat), Scirocco (Feat), Whirlwind Attack (Feat)

Benefit: As a full-attack action, you can make a move action, during which you may make a single melee attack at your highest attack bonus against a target. You may make this move with any move type you possess, even while riding a Mount, as long as you can interact with other figures during the move (walk or flight is usually fine, vaulting or tunneling is usually not, the GM adjudicates all unusual circumstances). You may move both before and after the attack, but the total distance that you move cannot be greater than a single move action. When doing so, you do not provoke an attack of opportunity from your target. You must be aware of your target, and your movement must pass close enough to the target to bring it within the reach of your attack. Spring attack cannot be combined with other feats or abilities that require a standard attack action or a full attack action.

Special: Spring Attack may be used to perform a single combat maneuver against your target, instead of a melee attack. This will not prevent attacks of opportunity from a maneuver that normally provokes them, unless you have another ability or feat which prevents such an attack.

Normal: You can move before or after an attack, but not both before and after.
