Anyone else thing elegant strike with the rapier is a bit over the top?

Just being able to raise your to hit, damage , ac and reflex saving throws with one stat seems like a bit much. I guess it could be somewhat balanced since you can't get dex as high as you potentially can with str, but I'm not sure.

it would be if not for 2 things:
to get it you need to get the feats required for that prc
once you got it, im pretty sure it works like other similar feats in that the damage bonus does not apply to creatures immune to critical hits/sneak attacks.

the damage hits any target crit immunity does not factor in

however the requirments of the class are high for a dex build

Feats: Martial Weapons, Heavy Armor, Combat Expertise, Dodge, Weapon Focus (Longsword, Rapier, or Scimitar)

meaning you also have to have 13 int minimum

the builds that benifit most from this usally dont get med or heavy armor prof so you have to spend feats on them or add a class that you wouldent normaly for them

before this class most took 3 levels of swash for int to damage wich is just as odd IMO

before this class dex melee builds who didnt have sneak dice were pitiful sure you had great ac but you did horrid damage even with WM or duelist

the only issue i have with it is that its magic damage not physical so DR or DI does not effect it

Yeah I can see that. Probably the reason I was thinking it was so over the top was because I was playing on Realms of Trinity where you can get massive stat boosts. On most servers its less of an issue.
