Everyone who takes ambidex takes two weapon and improved weapon fighting, right?
Like... I can't imagine a scenario where you wouldn't do that.
Is there some balanced way those could all be baked together to free up feat space, even if only for feat starved classes?

Like if you have ambi, just grant the others? I don't know. I didn't think this over, I'm alt-tabbng while someone gets a drink. Fight me.

Edit: don't actually fight me, I play a rogue atm. I'm scared.

Edit edit: and please gods not locked behind paths where current characters can't benefit from it.

Improved two weapon fighting has a level(or bab?) prerequisite. Other than low level balance stuff (which I doubt anyone cares a about too much) I'd love such a change. So I can play a dual weilding BG for extra edginess.

Since dual-wielding is brought up, it would be so nice if someone with the Ambidexterity feat didn't suffer the AB penalty when equipping / unequipping 2 weapons at the same time. It just doesn't make sense that someone skilled and trained in the rare art of dual -wielding, capable of decapitating an entire hydra in 6-12 seconds, would struggle with putting away their two daggers.

That would be such a good quality of life change for dual-wielding characters for sure.
If you use -notells, I will respect your decision and continue to engage with you in meaningful roleplay.
