Swashbucklers with the Battledancer style can gain panache by:
You gain panache during an encounter when the result of your Performance check to Perform exceeds the Will DC of an observing foe, even if the foe isn't fascinated.
Can I replace Perform with Acrobatics in this case, if I have the Acrobatic Performer feat?
Why would I do that?
- Swashbucklers have Dex as key ability, so Acrobatics can be higher than Perform
- Tumble Through also uses Acrobatics, but it provokes Attacks of Opportunity
- Battledancer's Perform is compared to Will DC, while Tumble Through needs to beat the Ref DC
