Duelist's prowess is a daily power available to rogues at 1st level.

Duelist's prowess was introduced in "Class Acts: The Duelist Rogue" by Mike Mearls in Dragon #381.

The Han Shot First character optimization guide is indecisive about this power, either rating it as poor if followed in the original printing, or excellent if following the unofficial errata.


  • Although not included in official errata, the compendium has an updated version of the power. In the original printing, the stance and attack were in a single power block, with no weapon keyword.
