No, a given martial maneuver can not be readied more than once. The reason for this confusion is that maneuvers and spells are similar enough in their implementation to make it easy to miss the few ways in which they are different - the ability to prepare a spell more than once being one of them. As seen on page 178 of the Player's Handbook: [A prepared ...

Yes. There are only a few requirements for using a maneuver: You meet its prerequisites (including Initiator Level) You know it You readied it You’ve been granted it, if a Crusader You have not expended it since the last time you recovered You can and do use the action required for it As you say, this means you can use more than one per round. In ...

The feat does not overrule the limit of using one action point per encounter. As for how to best take advantage? Paragon path features and feats that trigger off of using action points would be the obvious way. Since the triggering condition is an ally dropping, this could be an easy way for a Cleric (multiclass Fighter) to reduce the action cost of the ...

Beyond the points that Acedrummer_CLB exquisitely exposed, I think that in every occasion you could apply more than one effect under the same conditions and these effects come from different sources (powers, feats, whatever), you could apply them in the order you prefer. I have found no reference to support this "rule": I simply decided that if there ...

You have setup a good example the complex interactions of Powers, Feats and Actions. Since you are referring to stacking I will assume this means leveraging the best ToHit, damage potential and combat affects with an attack. Any 'Level of Stacking' is possible, but the question is what is allowed within the given combat. I have found that in most cases ...

Single-classed, no @Ernir covers this well. Multiclassed, maybe The question is whether or not a maneuvers that you know are separated by the classes you are in or not. In other words, does a Crusader/Warblade have separate Crusader maneuvers and Warblade maneuvers, or just a single list of maneuvers? The book is not entirely clear. Certainly, the ...

Each maneuver has a starting required action (in most cases it is a Swift Action). You can do only one Swift or Immediate Action each round.

From Martial Power 2, pg110: Using Combat Styles: ... You can learn any number of lesser and greater style feats. However, any single attack can benefit from only one lesser style feat and one greater style feat, and those feats must be associated with the same combat style. If multiple lesser style feats or greater style feats can affect an attack, you ...

You only get one action point per round. As to your secondary question: I would assume (just based on the name of the feat) that the most common use of the extra action point is to use it to charge the enemy who just dropped your ally. You have an "avenging spirit" that compels you to go after anyone who hurts your friends. Also, a nice cue for roleplaying ...

Baelnorm's got a pretty good list of powers & feats, so I'll just add a couple of extras/combos here. Shield Push Feat + anything else that can increase push distance = potential to negate a melee attack by a marked enemy as an immediate interrupt by pushing the enemy from the target with your Combat Challenge attack. Some ways to increase pushing ...

The Swordmage in the Forgotten Realms Players Guide has the power to deflect damage when his marked enemy attacks an ally. It's called Swordmage Aegis: Aegis of Shielding. You could either allow the player to play a swordmage instead or, if he prefers to remain a fighter, switch the class features for marking. You could also alter the power to affect only ...

Paladin's have a fair number of powers that allow this. You could convert him to a paladin, or just move powers over as you deem appropriate. Marty's BlessingDDI - an attack meant for an ally hits you instead. Price of CowardiceDDI - an attack that ignores you from a marked enemy provokes a 2W hit that blinds. Knightly IntercessionDDI - An attack hits an ...
