It's in the subclass name. You have Gary whose a scout subclass fighter. Started out life as a farmer. Sure he does a decent job slaying a Draconian. Good kid.
But Lance, the guy whose been training in war all his life, trained by Regis the Master Swordsman of the 12 Plains hidden in the Valley of the Sixth Heaven? Ya He's a Battle Master. And there's a reason why he's a master of warfare. And his skills show it.

No, I get it...it just makes KoS Battlemasters almost a must have. I always take pause when there's a significant power jump like that.

hmm, let's see...
4th level, let's not use variant human so we are not too greedy with feats...

4th level battlmaster
fighting style: superior technique
feats: Squire of solamnia, Knight of the crown, Martial adept

that is:
8 maneuvers and 10 superiority dice

sign me up

edit: greedy, custom background, bonus feat: polearm master, +2 racial ASI, +1 str from Knight of the crown = 18 STR

For Martials, and Backgrounds, has got to be some of the most cherry-pickable/portable/swappable UA they have released thus far. Seriously, if you don't want to do Dragonlance, you can totally use the Squire of Solamnia/Knightly Orders as anything you want to reskin wise. And since most of the Combat Maneuvers allow you to add the Superiority Die rolls to add to damage, Martials, of any sort, have gotten a nice/slight/generous(?) boost. Is it as great as what Spellcasters can do? I have no idea.
