Heartless Vindicator

Prerequisite: Only a vindicator can take this paragon path.

As your power grows, so too does your detachment. The experiences of other people seem distant and unreal, and even your own suffering is a matter of fact rather than feeling. Nevertheless, you continue to choose a path of virtue, filling the void of empathy with will and careful choice.

Heartless Vindicator Path Features

Callous Action (11th level): When you spend an action point to take an extra action, you gain combat advantage against all enemies until the end of your turn.

Steeled Soul (11th level): Your ceaseless training has steeled you against your foe’s influence; you cannot control your inner darkness without first controlling your fears. You gain a +2 bonus to saving throws and a +4 bonus to saving throws against fear effects.

Grim Hunger (16th level): You have combat advantage against creatures suffering ongoing damage. Whenever you reduce a creature suffering ongoing damage to 0 hit points, you regain one use of your grim smite this encounter.
