You blend secret monastic training with other talents to become a unique servant of the gods. Do your vows represent an earlier stage of your life, all but left behind, or a newfound mission?
As a hybrid avenger, you pursue your foes with great skill, but you must sacrifice some of your offensive and defensive capabilities to dabble in a second class.


You gain the avenger power oath of enmity. The power functions as normal, except that you can apply the effect only when you make a melee attack using an avenger power or an avenger paragon path power.

Avenger Feature Oath of Enmity

You focus your wrath on a single foe, giving your attacks against it extraordinary accuracy.

Encounter (Special)        Divine
Minor Action      Close burst 10

Target: One enemy you can see in the burst

Effect: When you make a melee attack against the target and the target is the only enemy adjacent to you, you make two attack rolls and use either result. This effect lasts until the end of the encounter or until the target drops to 0 hit points, at which point you regain the use of this power.
If another effect lets you roll twice and use the higher result when making an attack roll, this power has no effect on that attack. If an effect forces you to roll twice and use the lower result when making an attack roll, this power has no effect on that attack either.
If an effect lets you reroll an attack roll and you rolled twice because of this power, you reroll both dice.

Hybrid talent Options
If you take the Hybrid Talent feat, you can select one of the following options.

The favor of your deity wards you from harm. While you are wearing cloth armor or no armor and aren’t using a shield, you gain a +3 bonus to AC.

This class feature functions as the avenger class feature, except that the bonus to damage rolls applies only to your avenger powers and avenger paragon path powers.

This class feature functions as the avenger class feature, except that you start with a single avenger Channel Divinity power of your choice.

Suggested Combinations

The avenger/invoker enjoys a variety of melee and nonmelee attacks, all based on Wisdom. You can control enemies at a distance, making it even easier for you to hunt down your prey.

The avenger/wizard seems like an unusual combination at first glance, but both classes suggest the study of secret lore. With good Wisdom and Intelligence scores, you can achieve the same variety of attacks as an avenger/invoker can.
