comment Is your characters ability to avoid attacks based solely on AC?
Whether you think it or not, the question is Is AC the only way for a character to avoid being attacked, or is there something else that I've missed that mentions it? And the answer is no, preparation/tactics and saves also are defenses used in combat to reduce/avoid damage, not just AC. Attacking isnt limited to physical melee or ranged, it includes magic as well.

A broader answer is that, yes, in order to cause any harm, a creature must meet or beat your defensive stats. Your main defensive stats are AC and Saves.

You are treating it as a special effect when it comes to that class feature. If it were a straight +X damage rather than a roll for sneak attack you would not fight for this. Sneak attack is part of the damage roll. Studied target is part of the damage roll. You are trying to apply logic of what sneak attack damage is abstracted to, to the actual game mechanic. You have an answer from the lead designer on how sneak attack damage works. There is nothing more I can add.
