I am in the process of building a character to play in an Iron Heroes game, and I was wondering if it was possible to make a whirlwind attack, and with the melee attack provided by whirlwind attack make a trip special attack.
Is this possible? As the action cost of a Trip Attempt is listed as [Varies], and is initiated with a melee touch attack, should a character be able to perform trip attacks with the melee attacks generated by Whirlwind Attack?
RAW - Whirlwind attack's usage is as follows; on a full attack action, giving up your normal attacks and instead make a single melee attack at full BAB against each opponent within reach.
My question lies in the interpretation of whether or not a trip attempt may be used as a single melee attack. Due to the only action requirement listed for a trip attempt is the melee touch attack required to initiate the trip.
