Power comparison[edit]

Getting advantage on a roll is, on average, the equivalent of a +3.325 bonus on a d20. Getting "precise advantage" is, on average, the equivalent of an additional +1.6625 bonus. Feats are designed to be roughly equal in power to a +2 bonus to an ability score. A "precise advantage" is effectively a +3.325 bonus to an ability score, with the tradeoff that you only get the bonus when you'd normally have advantage. This is already pretty good, but then enemies get precise disadvantage against you, and you get +1 Dexterity on top of that. I think it would be reasonable to remove the ability score increase. —Proton[talk] 16:09, 29 March 2016 (MDT)

Not to mention an increased chance of getting a critical.
Beyond that, I have to say, this lacks flavour compared to the PHB feats which have several elements tied together with a theme. Marasmusine (talk) 16:33, 29 March 2016 (MDT)

I believe it's balanced cause it can go both ways. All you need is a critical fail and everything goes to hell. You just give your DM more chances to give you that arrow to the head and that's part of the risk you get for the advantages you want. I'd vote for it as ok.--Johny2536 (talk) 19:17, 15 June 2016 (MDT)

5th edition doesn't have "critical fails". Marasmusine (talk) 02:14, 9 November 2016 (MST)
