I have a question about the feat "Paired Opportunists":
Whenever you are adjacent to an ally who also has this feat, you receive a +4 circumstance bonus on attacks of opportunity against creatures that you both threaten. Enemies that provoke attacks of opportunity from your ally also provoke attacks of opportunity from you so long as you threaten them (even if the situation or an ability would normally deny you the attack of opportunity). This does not allow you to take more than one attack of opportunity against a creature for a given action.
So, when does it really trigger another AoO?
I trip an enemy with a "Greater Trip":
You receive a +2 bonus on checks made to trip a foe. This bonus stacks with the bonus granted by Improved Trip. Whenever you successfully trip an opponent, that opponent provokes attacks of opportunity.
1) I trip an enemy - I make an AoO (provoking act - trip)
2) My ally makes an AoO (triggering act - trip)
3) I make an AoO (triggering act - enemy provoked my ally's AoO from trip)
4) My ally makes an AoO (triggering act - enemy provoked my AoO from trip)
5) AoOs end (I can't make more than one AoO with "Paired Opportunists")
We have an "Outflank" and one of us crits:
Whenever you and an ally who also has this feat are flanking the same creature, your flanking bonus on attack rolls increases to +4. In addition, whenever you score a critical hit against the flanked creature, it provokes an attack of opportunity from your ally.
1) My ally makes an AoO (source - my crit)
2) I make an AoO (source - enemy provoked my ally's AoO)
3) An ally makes AoO (source - enemy provoked my AoO)
4) AoOs end.
So, is it right, or am I piling up a lot of excess AoOs?
And if all of this AoOs are not allowed, when does "Paired opportunist" really get you an AoO? Because all of the triggers I see already provoke AoOs from both of you.
