This question about the Flowing Monk's Redirection already lightens the mechanic when one combat maneuver is used. However the order of the actions and their interactions remains ambiguous to me when, at 8th level, the flowing monk can make both maneuvers:
At 8th level, a flowing monk can make both a reposition and a trip maneuver as part of a single immediate action with this ability.
Should both maneuvers be considered being done in the same time as they are both part of the same immediate action, making the order of execution irrelevant, or not? I think of two scenarios which would be impacted by the order of execution:
- If the monk, having the Greater Trip feat, trips the opponent first and make an attack of opportunity, triggering his Unbalancing Counter feature. If the target fails its saving throw against the Unbalancing Counter, does that mean that the target is considered flat-footed and suffers a -4 penalty to its CMD for the just following Reposition maneuver?
- If the monk wants to reposition the target adjacent to an ally who have the Vicious Stomp feat to trigger an attack of opportunity when tripping it, does that mean he must make the reposition maneuver first, then the trip?
