Lash of Hatred
Lash of Hatred (Ranger/Blackguard)
Must have 12 levels of Ranger, 10 levels of Blackguard, and Weapon Focus (Whip) before level 24.
On achieving Lash of Hatred status at level 22 or 23, the Lash receives Weapon Specialization (Whip), Disarm, Improved Disarm, Knockdown, and Improved Knockdown as bonus feats.
The Lash of Hatred casts Blade Thirst and Camouflage using ranger level + blackguard level, including legendary levels if the Lash's control class is ranger or blackguard.
When the Lash of Hatred casts Blade Thirst on a whip he is wielding, he imbues it with the Touch of the Lash.
The duration of his Blade Thirst spell multiplies by 10. The additional damage done by Blade Thirst is negative damage instead of positive, and is increased by 1 per 2 blackguard levels possessed by the Lash (including legendary levels if the Lash's control class is blackguard). This additional damage can be activated and deactivated with the Blackguard Greater Smite commands (even if the Lash does not qualify for Greater Smite) to allow the Lash to control kickback; using '!damdi' will disable the additional damage and '!damne' will enable it.
A whip imbued with the Touch of the Lash inflicts up to 5% damage vulnerability to all physical and elemental sources on hit when striking a favored enemy, to a maximum of (2 + blackguard class level)%. If the Lash has the Bane of Enemies feat, the limit increases a further 5%. In addition, when striking a favored enemy, it inflicts a -2 Discipline penalty for 2 rounds.
The vampiric regeneration from Blade Thirst becomes on-hit for an imbued whip.
You cannot take Favored Enemy feats in legendary levels, as they do not work properly if you do.
