A scimitar is a military one-handed melee weapon in the heavy blade weapon group.[PH:218]

A scimitar has high crits, dealing an extra 1d8 damage at levels 1-10, 2d8 damage at levels 11-20, or 3d8 damage at level 21-30, on a critical hit.

Ardents, avengers, barbarians, battleminds, fighters, paladins, rangers, wardens, and warlords are proficient with all military melee weapons, including the scimitar. Assassins and swordmages are proficient with military heavy blades, including the scimitar. Bards are also proficient with the scimitar.

Other classes do not have proficiency with the scimitar as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.

A character with the Scimitar Dance paragon tier feat deals damage equal to the character's Dexterity modifier on a missed melee attack using a scimitar, if the attack would normally deal no damage on a miss.
