Type of Feat: Combat

Prerequisite: BAB +4, Str 13+, Power Attack, Cleave

Specifics: This ability is similar to the Cleave ability. If the character with this feat kills an opponent in melee combat, they get an additional, free attack, on an adjacent opponent. This is the same as the Cleave feat. However, in this case, the character will continue to gain free attacks as long as he or she continues to kill opponents. The number of opponents able to be killed in this manner is only limited by the reach of the character's melee weapon.

Use: Automatic.

Special: A Fighter may select Great Cleave as one of his Fighter bonus feats.

DnD 3.5 Great Cleave[edit | edit source]

Type: General

Prerequisites: Str 13, Power Attack, Cleave, +4 Base Attack Bonus.

Benefit: If you deal a creature enough damage to make it drop (typically by dropping it to below 0 hit points or killing it), you get an immediate, extra melee attack against another creature within reach. You cannot take a 5-foot step before making this extra attack. The extra attack is with the same weapon and at the same bonus as the attack that dropped the previous creature. You can continue to make attacks as long as you continue killing creatures (unlike Cleave).

Special: A Fighter may select Great Cleave as one of his Fighter bonus feats.

Gameplay Notes[edit | edit source]

Great Cleave is great to use in modules or servers with very weak enemies. However, in servers with strong enemies, it's a useless ability.
