Yes... Yes, it is. This campaign is a 125pt. game and I can't waste a single point. This dragoon is also my healer so quite a bit of points had to go to that.

Thank you all for the feedback though!

don't forget flying leap is based on IQ, you can take the sheer speed perk from DF swashbuckler to base it off DX instead :)

OK,

So what if all I wanted was the multiple parry benefits from Weapon Master for one weapon, and the option that taking this skill allowed the use of Extra effort (otherwise one couldn't use Extra effort)-and nothing else. How much would that cost? 10 points?

Maybe -30%. GURPS Action 3 has the modifier "Evasion" for (-50%) which allows all the fancy movement stuff but not any of the combat stuff.

So one weapon would about 14 points...assuming my guesstimate is correct of course.

I'd Eyeball Multiple Parry bonus Only at -50%.

No Multiple Parry Bonus is generally said to be -20% (such as if you already have Trained by a Master) and you are missing out on a lot of Weapon Master if all you get is the multiple parry bonus. I am even tempted to say -60%, but to be fair, it's still pretty good at half price.

Yeah, that's almost exactly what I was thinking. Thanks for the help guys!

If you can't spare the 15 points for Weapon Master I think you are going to have trouble affording a combat useful level of power blow.

Can you buy thinsg as advantages? Such as

Striking ST +10 (Limited Use 3/day -20%, Trigger, Blood Agent -40%, Magic -10% and Takes recharge 5 sec -10%) [10]

(My numbers maybe off. IDHMBWM.)

And then Enhanced Parry 1 or 2 and some extra skill
And.. Super jump with similar limitations?

It would cost about 30 points, same cost as any other good option.

Otherwise, accept lower point totals, enjoy the feel of Skills from 9-12!
