You lead through careful observation and a knack for predicting your enemies' actions. In combat, you keep your eyes open and quickly adapt your plan to changing circumstances. You show your allies how to identify enemy weaknesses and exploit those flaws. You are skilled at demoralizing foes and are an expert at interrupting their actions by issuing quick commands.
You can select the following class features instead of another option, such as the ones presented in the Player's Handbook or Martial Power. You need not pick the insightful warlord build to select these features.
When you choose a Commanding Presence, you can select the following option.
Insightful Presence: When any ally who can see you spends an action point to take an extra action, that ally gains a bonus to all defenses equal to half your Wisdom modifier or half your Charisma modifier until the end of your next turn.
This class feature replaces your Combat Leader class feature.
Canny Leader: You and any ally within 10 squares of you who can see and hear you gain a +2 bonus to Insight checks and Perception checks.
Your attack powers rely on Strength, so make that your primary ability score. Wisdom is your second priority, because it helps you perceive foes and anticipate their actions. Ifyou choose the Insightful Presence class feature, you can use Wisdom or Charisma, so pick one of those ability scores as your tertiary ability score depending on which other warlord build you want to dabble in.
