Expected behavior: DR stacks between Barbarian class and the Stalwart feat chain.
Current behavior: Character sheet is reporting the bonus as only the highest of the two.
In depth: At level 14, with the Stalwart and Imp. Stalwart feats (and prereqs) on a character with the Invulnerable Rager barbarian archetype, DR is listed as 7/. DR should be listed as 17/.
This (Stalwart DR) should either be attached to the combat expertise temporary bonus or have it's own temporary bonus listed, and neither of those are present. It should also not stack with any sources of DR except those gained from class features.
Note, this has only been tested on the invulnerable rager archetype.
This is a feature request, not a bug, after a review.
Lots of interactions, also FYI this never granted a DR, so the initial statement about only getting the highest of the two is actually incorrect.
This can be used in place of granting the DODGE bonus from Full Defense, Fighting Defensively, or Combat Expertise. Merely tacking this on is not appropriate, as then how would the user decide whether to take the Dodge or DR?
I need to really wrap my head around how I want to do this intuitively.
This is only implemented for a BASE Barbarian. Anything else will need to be a request. Give this a test and let me know how it works.
