Prerequisite(s): Investigator 15th level
Benefit: When an investigator deals damage with studied strike, the opponent must succeed at a Fortitude saving throw or become permanently deafened. A successful saving throw reduces the duration of this effect to 1 round. The DC for this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the investigator’s level + his Intelligence modifier. This talent has no effect on deaf creatures. Deafness can be cured by heal, regeneration, remove blindness/deafness, or similar effects.
