Endzeitgeist Says: Solid option to enhance your chances of getting in a trip - remember that prone foes are significantly less flexible while on the ground and that standing up provokes AoOs from you - which you can use to send the foe back to the floor. To trip a foe is a good idea when you try to lock down one of these agile guys tumbling around on the battlefield...
