A slight improvement on the PH! Paragon Path, reflecting the weakness of the d4 damage dagger. At this point, all of this is a sketch.

4ED&D 4E
4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons

Daggermaster is a paragon path for 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons.

See how the dagger dances along my fingertips, see it spin. I have forgotten more ways to use this dagger than you can ever imagine.

You and your dagger become one as you master the intricacies of battling with the blade. You are a master of the dagger, able to employ your weapon in ways that no lesser rogue can match.

Paragon Path

Prerequisite: Rogue class.

Daggermaster Paragon Path Features

Daggermaster’s Action (11th level): You can spend an action point to turn a normal hit with a dagger into a critical hit. (This would replace the one above)

Dagger Precision (11th level): You can score critical hits with daggers on a roll of 18–20.

Dagger Advantage (16th level): When you score a critical hit with a dagger, the target grants combat advantage to you until the end of your next turn. If you are hidden, you remain hidden.
