Melt Defenses (Combat)

Source Character Operations Manual pg. 116
You can dissolve key portions of your target’s defenses, making them easier to hit.

Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +11.

Benefit: When you score a critical hit with an attack that deals acid damage, instead of applying the normal critical hit effect, you can disrupt the target’s defenses for 1d4 rounds. Attacks against a creature whose defenses have been disrupted in this manner target EAC, regardless of the attacks’ damage type.
