Vicious Slice (Ex)

Requires: Barbarian 1, Urban Mien
Benefit: As a free action, you can activate Vicious Slice. The next attack you make before the start of your next turn, if it hits, inflicts a Bleed on your target, equal to your CHA modifier, in addition to dealing normal damage. Note that bleeds do not stack; only the largest bleed is applied to a target, replacing any smaller ones which might be present. If the attack misses, or fails to occur before the start of your next turn, this activation provides no benefit.
Vicious Slice cannot be activated in the same round as any other rage powers capable of inflicting a status condition, unless it inflicts status conditions from the same array (i.e. Bruised, Bleed or Ruptured).

Progression:

  • 10th Level: When you activate Vicious Slice, it now applies to up to two attacks you make before the start of your next turn, one of which must be your next attack. You must declare which attacks are augmented with Vicious Slice before rolling the attack.
  • 20th Level: Attacks augmented by Vicious Slice now inflict Ruptured instead of Bleed, equal to your CHA modifier, in addition to dealing normal damage.
  • 30th Level: When you activate Vicious Slice, it now applies to up to three attacks you make before the start of your next turn, one of which must be your next attack. You must declare which attacks are augmented with Vicious Slice before rolling the attack.
