Sundering! I have a character built around this! Dude with an antimagic adamantine mace that drains all the plusses. High strength and tons of points into (profession) breaking stuff and we have ourselves a gamebreaker. Give hima few dozen points in the skill, and with enough dex, and he can stop a heart attack by sundering the buildup in the artery. Percussive maintinence could be applied to lots of things!

A few *dozen* points? Yeah, you sure can do a lot of stuff with a skill when you're level 36 lol.

...He once built a chef that could one-shot a T-rex.
I always take what he says about builds seriously.
Besides, it isn't as if we don't all know that the only RPG system that can't have it's rules turned inside out by the attentive and is 4th D&D. (If only because it's so darn inflexible.) I'm certain that there are ways to get that many skill points before level FIVE if he takes enough flaws.

I can get ten skill points per level. It's not that hard to negotiate based on some flaws. Pick some obscure class with tons of skill points, doesn't matter if it's a terrible class, like that bad samurai class. High skill points=effectiveness.

It's an alternate method of breaking the game. Think about it. (Profession) Soldier would more or less negate any penalties from wielding standard weapons. It would also grant survival skills, map reading, and and a bunch of other skills. I need to use this character sometime, to test it out.

Also, the T-rex thing wasn't that complicated, just a little rules lawyering. I did, however, die when the T-rex started to fall, and I tumbled off to fall 20 feet and lost my three hit points. You heard me. Three hit points. I think I was level three.

My stat rolls were absolutely abysmal on that character except for a medium amount of int. I'm not kidding here. He had at least a -1 on every score except int, and I rolled three ones in a row for his hp. He fell two stories and died instantly... Well, okay, the T-Rex corpse blocking him might have delayed the party long enough for him to bleed out.

Still fun, though.

That's one thing. Talking about it like you're giving out valid game tips is incredibly misleading, however.

That's the thing about Munchkin-ing, you're not going off of how things are meant to work, you're going off of what EXACTLY the rules say and bending those rules until they make a nice pretzel.

Then eating the pretzel because screw you your T-Rex is going to die.

I'm afraid I don't understand what you're trying to say.

A Mace? Why not a Goliath Greathammer? Has a +2 to Sunder intrinsically.

Mace is good starting weapon. Upgrade to better gear over time, you know.

"Unreal armour"

That assumes they aren't playing a system that gives your armour bonuses to every body part regardless of where the armour is located.

"Can i do this?"

Are there rules for sundering in 4e? Haven't seen them but 4e seems to be very...streamlined.

Just say you're using your highest stat. If it's strength, you sunder it with power. Dex, you sunder it with finesse. Intelligence, you target the weakest spot. There are so many ways to cheese it.
