What (if any) are abilities, feats, or classes that stack or help progress with the Cavalier class's Challenge ability.

To a lesser degree I guess I am also looking at the Samurai which also gets the same Challenge stacking but the main focus is Cavalier.

I am looking for any abilities, or character options that progress any aspect of the challenge (excluding Order modifications from your chosen Order). Such as uses per day, increased effectiveness, etc.

Someone might be able to answer only part of your question, not both, or we might get conflicting answers that are both half right otherwise. I recommend you ask your secondary question separately or simply review the rules on Alternate Classes. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 24 at 15:41

  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you only interested in the bonus damage all cavaliers get, or have you selected an Order? Including all orders in the question would be for too broad to answer with specifics. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 24 at 22:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ Excluding Order abilities as those are part of the cavalier class, looking for features/options outside of the standard class. I am mostly looking for ways to gain additional uses per day or stack progression with other classes, but extra damage would fall under the interest of this question. \$\endgroup\$

There are some races that enhance the Challenge ability

This is under "Favoured Class Bonuses"

Instead of receiving an additional skill rank or hit point whenever they gain a level in a favored class, some races have the option of choosing from a number of other bonuses, depending upon their favored classes. The following options are available to the listed race who have cavalier as their favored class, and unless otherwise stated, the bonus applies each time you select the listed favored class reward.

For the Paizo races, the classes that affect the Challenge ability are

Race Bonus
Dwarf Add +½ to the cavalier’s bonus to damage against targets of the cavalier’s challenge.
Halfling Add +½ to the cavalier’s effective class level for the purposes of determining the damage dealt when making an attack of opportunity against a challenged foe.
Aasimar Add +¼ to the cavalier’s bonus on damage against targets of his challenge.
Orc Add +1 to the cavalier’s CMB when making bull rush or overrun combat maneuvers against a challenged target.

    \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, this question has been floating for a while. I was looking for more general support that would be open to all races such as feats, class features, items, etc. But I think it's clear there just isn't any support for what I'm looking for. I'll go ahead and mark this as complete as it's likely the best answer out there. \$\endgroup\$
