Feats

Types of Feats

Some feats are general, meaning that no special rules govern them as a group. Others are item creation feats, which allow spellcasters to create magic items of all sorts. A metamagic feat lets a spellcaster prepare and cast a spell with greater effect, albeit as if the spell was a higher spell level than it actually is.

Battlemind Feats

These feats allow the character to perform supernatural abilities by virtue of special training and skill. They are a move action to activate and do not provoke attacks of opportunity to use, unless stated otherwise in their descriptions.

Note: Some Arcane Battle Feats have been reclassified as Battlemind feats (since I didn't want to have too many feat types).

Divine Feats

The feats in this category share a few characteristics. First, they all have as a prerequisite the ability to turn (or, in most cases, rebuke) undead. Thus, they are open to clerics, experienced paladins, and any prestige class that has that ability. (An ability to turn other creatures does not qualify a character to select one of these feats.) Second, the force that powers a divine feat is the ability to channel positive or negative energy to turn or rebuke undead. Each use of a divine feat costs the character one turn/rebuke attempt from his or her number of attempts each day. If a character doesn't have any turn/rebuke attempts left, he or she can't use the feat. Since turning or rebuking is a standard action, activating any of these feats is also a standard action.

Eldritch Feats

Eldritch feats grant characters actual magical abilities; the benefits of these feats are spell-like abilities unless otherwise noted and as such cannot be used in an antimagic field.

Epic Feats

Epic feats require characters to be level 21+ (or ECL 21+, in the case of monstrous characters).

Fighter Feats

Any feat designated as a fighter feat can be selected as a fighter's bonus feat. This designation does not restrict characters of other classes from selecting these feats, assuming that they meet any prerequisites.

Item Creation Feats

An item creation feat lets a spellcaster create a magic item of a certain type. Regardless of the type of items they involve, the various item creation feats all have certain features in common.
XP Cost: Experience that the spellcaster would normally keep is expended when making a magic item. The XP cost equals 10 times the cost of the item in gold bars (1/25 of its cost in gold pieces). A character cannot spend so much XP on an item that he or she loses a level. However, upon gaining enough XP to attain a new level, he or she can immediately expend XP on creating an item rather than keeping the XP to advance a level.
Raw Materials Cost: The cost of creating a magic item equals one-half the sale cost of the item.
Using an item creation feat also requires access to a laboratory or magical workshop, special tools, and so on. A character generally has access to what he or she needs unless unusual circumstances apply.
Time: The time to create a magic item depends on the feat and the cost of the item. The minimum time is one day.
Item Cost: Brew Potion, Craft Wand, and Scribe Scroll create items that directly reproduce spell effects, and the power of these items depends on their caster level—that is, a spell from such an item has the power it would have if cast by a spellcaster of that level. The price of these items (and thus the XP cost and the cost of the raw materials) also depends on the caster level. The caster level must be high enough that the spellcaster creating the item can cast the spell at that level. To find the final price in each case, multiply the caster level by the spell level, then multiply the result by a constant, as shown below:
Scrolls: Base price = spell level × caster level × 25 gp.
Potions: Base price = spell level × caster level × 50 gp.
Wands: Base price = spell level × caster level × 750 gp.
A 0-level spell is considered to have a spell level of 1/2 for the purpose of this calculation.
Extra Costs: Any potion, scroll, or wand that stores a spell with a costly material component or an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. For potions and scrolls, the creator must expend the material component or pay the XP cost when creating the item.
For a wand, the creator must expend fifty copies of the material component or pay fifty times the XP cost.
Some magic items similarly incur extra costs in material components or XP, as noted in their descriptions.

Metamagic Feats

As a spellcaster's knowledge of magic grows, she can learn to cast spells in ways slightly different from the ways in which the spells were originally designed or learned. Preparing and casting a spell in such a way is harder than normal but, thanks to metamagic feats, at least it is possible. Spells modified by a metamagic feat use a spell slot higher than normal. This does not change the level of the spell, so the DC for saving throws against it does not go up.
Wizards and Divine Spellcasters: Wizards and divine spellcasters must prepare their spells in advance. During preparation, the character chooses which spells to prepare with metamagic feats (and thus which ones take up higher-level spell slots than normal).
Sorcerers and Bards: Sorcerers and bards choose spells as they cast them. They can choose when they cast their spells whether to apply their metamagic feats to improve them. As with other spellcasters, the improved spell uses up a higher-level spell slot. But because the sorcerer or bard has not prepared the spell in a metamagic form in advance, he must apply the metamagic feat on the spot. Therefore, such a character must also take more time to cast a metamagic spell (one enhanced by a metamagic feat) than he does to cast a regular spell. If the spell's normal casting time is 1 action, casting a metamagic version is a full-round action for a sorcerer or bard. (This isn't the same as a 1-round casting time.)
For a spell with a longer casting time, it takes an extra full-round action to cast the spell.
Spontaneous Casting and Metamagic Feats: A cleric spontaneously casting a cure or inflict spell can cast a metamagic version of it instead. Extra time is also required in this case. Casting a 1-action metamagic spell spontaneously is a full-round action, and a spell with a longer casting time takes an extra full-round action to cast.
Effects of Metamagic Feats on a Spell: In all ways, a metamagic spell operates at its original spell level, even though it is prepared and cast as a higher-level spell. Saving throw modifications are not changed unless stated otherwise in the feat description.
The modifications made by these feats only apply to spells cast directly by the feat user. A spellcaster can't use a metamagic feat to alter a spell being cast from a wand, scroll, or other device.
Metamagic feats that eliminate components of a spell don't eliminate the attack of opportunity provoked by casting a spell while threatened. However, casting a spell modified by Quicken Spell does not provoke an attack of opportunity.
Metamagic feats cannot be used with all spells. See the specific feat descriptions for the spells that a particular feat can't modify.

Multiple Metamagic Feats on a Spell: A spellcaster can apply multiple metamagic feats to a single spell. Changes to its level are cumulative. You can't apply the same metamagic feat more than once to a single spell.

Magic Items and Metamagic Spells: With the right item creation feat, you can store a metamagic version of a spell in a scroll, potion, or wand. Level limits for potions and wands apply to the spell's higher spell level (after the application of the metamagic feat). A character doesn't need the metamagic feat to activate an item storing a metamagic version of a spell.
Counterspelling Metamagic Spells: Whether or not a spell has been enhanced by a metamagic feat does not affect its vulnerability to counterspelling or its ability to counterspell another spell.

Wild Feats

The feats in this category share the characteristic of relating to the druid's wild shape ability. These feats require the character to have the ability to use wild shape before acquiring the feat.

Feat Descriptions

Here is the format for feat descriptions.

Feat Name [Type of Feat]
Prerequisite(s): A minimum ability score, another feat or feats, a minimum base attack, a minimum number of ranks in one or more skills, or a class level that a character must have in order to acquire this feat. This entry is absent if a feat has no prerequisite. A feat may have more than one prerequisite.
Benefit: What the feat enables the character ("you" in the feat description) to do. If a character has the same feat more than once, its benefits do not stack unless indicated otherwise in the description.
In general, having a feat twice is the same as having it once.
Normal: What a character who does not have this feat is limited to or restricted from doing. If not having the feat causes no particular drawback, this entry is absent.
Special: Additional facts about the feat that may be helpful when you decide whether to acquire the feat.

Works in Progress

Willful [General]
Prerequisite: Iron Will or Epic Will.
Benefit: If you fail a Will save, reroll with a −2 penalty.

Basher [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Weapon Focus with a bludgeoning weapon, Weapon Specialization, fighter level 9.
Benefit: If you hit with a bludgeoning weapon in melee and you beat the AC by at least 2, you deal an additional +2 damage.

Biter [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Weapon Focus with a piercing weapon, Weapon Specialization, fighter level 9.
Benefit: You ignore the first 2 points of damage reduction when striking with a piercing weapon in melee. If you crit, you do an extra +1 damage (which is multiplied as usual).

Slicer [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Weapon Focus with a slashing weapon, Weapon Specialization, fighter level 9.
Benefit: If you make a critical hit in melee with a slashing weapon, roll your base weapon damage one additional time.
Example: You crit with a greatsword, which normally deals 2d6+5 damage. Instead of rolling 4d6+10 you roll 6d6+10.

Devastating Fists [Epic]
Prerequisites: Epic Ki Strike, Magic Fists, Wis 21, Str 17, ki strike (adamantine), epic attack +5.
Benefit: You gain a +10 enhancement bonus on attack and damage with your unarmed attack.


Ability Focus [General]
Choose one of the creature's special attacks.
Prerequisite: Special attack.
Benefit: Add +2 to the DC for all saving throws against the special attack on which the creature focuses.
Special: A creature can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time the creature takes the feat it applies to a different special attack.

Absorb Damage [General]
Prerequisites: Endurance, greater rage class feature.
Benefit: When entering a rage, you can choose to forgo the Constitution bonus. If you do, you instead gain 1 temporary hit point per Hit Die.

Acid Substitution [Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Any other metamagic feat, Knowledge (magic) 5 ranks.
Benefit: When employing a spell with the cold, electricity, fire, or sonic descriptor, you can modify the spell to use acid instead. The altered spell uses a spell slot one level higher than the spell's normal level.
The altered spell works normally in all respects except the type of damage dealt.

Acrobatic [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Jump checks and Tumble checks.

Additional Magic Item Space [Epic]
Benefit: Choose one type of magic item that has a limit on the number a character can simultaneously wear and gain its benefit. You can now wear one more magic item of this type and also gain its benefit.
Normal: Without this feat, a character is limited to one headband, hat, or helmet; one pair of eye lenses or goggles; one cloak, cape, or mantle; one amulet, brooch, medallion, necklace, periapt, or scarab; one suit of armor; one robe; one vest, vestment, or shirt; one pair of bracers or bracelets; one pair of gloves or gauntlets; two rings; one belt; and one pair of boots.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of wearable magic item.

Adrenal Healing [General]
Your increased metabolism allows you to heal wounds almost instantly.
Prerequisite: Rage class feature.
Benefit: If you are already raging, you may expend one of your daily rages to gain fast healing 1.

Adroit Flyby Attack [General]
Prerequisites: Fly speed, Dodge, Flyby Attack, Mobility.
Benefit: If the standard action taken by a creature during a round in which it uses Flyby Attack is a melee attack, the creature provokes no attacks of opportunity from moving out of squares threatened by its target.
Normal: Without this feat, a creature making an attack as part of a Flyby Attack maneuver provokes attacks of opportunity as normal from moving out of squares threatened by its target.

Agile [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Balance checks and Escape Artist checks.

Alertness [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Listen checks and Spot checks.
Special: The master of a familiar gains the benefit of the Alertness feat whenever the familiar is within arm's reach.

Aligned Breath Weapon [Epic]
The creature's breath weapon draws energy from the creature's very soul, changing the nature of the attack.
Prerequisites: Breath weapon special attack, matching alignment.
Benefit: Pick from good, evil, law, or chaos; part of the creature's alignment must match the alignment chosen.
Whenever the creature uses its breath weapon, half the damage is normal for that attack (e.g., fire or cold), but the other half is powered purely by the creature's conviction and can only be reduced by effects protecting against alignment-based damage. The alignment-based damage does not affect foes with a matching alignment.

Ambidexterity [Fighter]
Benefit: You ignore all penalties for using an off hand. You are neither left-handed nor right-handed. You still may not gain your full Strength bonus on attacks with all hands (though you may change which hand gains the full Strength bonus at the beginning of each of your turns).
Normal: If you wield a second weapon in your off hand, you can get one extra attack per round with that weapon. When fighting in this way you suffer a −6 penalty with your regular attack or attacks with your primary hand and a −10 penalty to the attack with your off hand. If your off-hand weapon is light the penalties are reduced by 2 each. (An unarmed strike is always considered light.)
Special: A 2nd-level ranger who has chosen the two-weapon combat style is treated as having Ambidexterity, even if he does not have the prerequisite for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

Ambush [General]
Your sneak attacks are deadlier than usual.
Prerequisite: Sneak attack +1d6.
Benefit: You deal +1d6 damage on sneak attacks with a light melee weapon.

Angelic Animal Affinity [General]
You have a special affinity for a kind of animal associated with your angelic nature.
Prerequisite: Angel.
Benefit: You can influence animals and celestial animals of a certain type as if you had the wild empathy ability of a druid. You do not suffer the normal −4 penalty when using this ability on a celestial animal of the appropriate type. You gain a +4 bonus on Handle Animal checks regarding the appropriate kind of animal.
Work with your DM to choose an appropriate type of animal. For example, a lillend might select snakes, while a leonal may choose felines.

Angelsmite [General]
You can channel your personal energy into supernatural damage.
Prerequisite: Fiend or tiefling.
Benefit: Similar to a paladin's ability to smite evil (but opposite in effect), you gain the supernatural ability to make an angelsmite once per day with a normal melee attack. You add your Charisma bonus to your attack roll and add 1 extra point of damage per Hit Die. Your angelsmite proves effective against aasimar and good outsiders (like angels). If you smite an inappropriate creature it has no effect and uses up the daily smite.
Special: You can take this feat multiple times, gaining additional smites per day.

Animal Affinity [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Handle Animal checks and Ride checks.

Animate Weapon [Battlemind]
You create a nimbus of magical force around a single melee weapon that allows it to move and fight on its own. This force draws on your intellect and combat skill, allowing the animated weapon to fight with talent equal to your own.
Prerequisites: Mystic Might, Summon Spectral Squire, base attack +12.
Benefit: You imbue a single weapon you hold in your hand with the ability to fight on its own. The weapon deals its standard damage, including any bonuses and abilities it gains from magical enhancement. It strikes with attack bonus equal to your base attack plus your Intelligence modifier. If your attack bonus is high enough for you to gain multiple attacks, the weapon gains these attacks as well. The weapon never gains a flanking bonus, nor does it provide one for another attacker. Your feats do not aid its attacks. It acts on your initiative count.
The weapon can fly at a speed of 30 feet with perfect maneuverability. It must remain within 100 feet of you. You can direct it to attack a foe as a free action when you first use this ability to animate the weapon, but on subsequent rounds you must use a move action to set it against a new foe. If its current foe is defeated, the weapon automatically moves to attack the closest enemy. The weapon never willingly attempts to move farther than 100 feet from you.
The weapon's Armor Class, hit points, and hardness are as normal for its size. It does not gain attacks of opportunity, nor does it provoke them, unless an opponent tries to grapple it. In that case, it gains an attack of opportunity against any would-be grapplers, with no limit on the number of such attacks of opportunity, though it can attack each grappler only once. If grappled, the weapon makes grapple checks as normal for its base attack and size. It gains no Strength bonus.
If an opponent dispels the effect, the animated weapon falls to the ground.

Arcane Disjunction [Epic]
You can temporarily disable magical devices.
Prerequisites: Disable Device 25 ranks, Spellcraft 1 rank, Use Magic Device 1 rank, ability to cast detect magic.
Benefit: Make a Disable Device check against the appropriate DC.

When you wear a type of armor with which you are proficient, the armor check penalty for that armor applies only to Balance, Climb, Escape Artist, Hide, Jump, Move Silently, Sleight of Hand, and Tumble checks.
Normal: A character who is wearing armor with which she is not proficient applies its armor check penalty to attack rolls and to all skill checks that involve moving, including Ride.
Special: Barbarians, bards, clerics, druids, fighters, paladins, rangers, and rogues gain Armor Proficiency (light) as a bonus feat. They need not select it.

Augmented Alchemy [Epic]
Prerequisites: Int 21, Craft (alchemy) 24 ranks.
Benefit: Whenever creating an alchemical item or substance, you can choose to make it more powerful than normal by adding +20 to the DC required to create it and multiplying its price by 5. If the item or substance deals damage, double the damage dealt. If the item or substance doesn't deal damage, double the duration of its effect. If the item or substance doesn't deal damage and doesn't have a specific listed duration (or has an instantaneous duration), double all dimensions of its area. If the item or substance doesn't fit any of these categories, then it cannot be affected by this feat. See the Craft (alchemy) skill description.

Augment Summoning [General]
Prerequisite: Spell Focus (conjuration).
Benefit: Each creature you conjure with any summon spell gains a +4 enhancement bonus to Strength and Constitution for the duration of the spell that summoned it.

Augment Physical Prowess [Battlemind]
You draw upon your magical ability to strengthen your limbs, sharpen your reflexes, or enhance your toughness.
Prerequisites: Mystic Might, base attack +3.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 5, rounded down, +1.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to your base attack.
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution.

Automatic Quicken Spell [Epic]
Prerequisites: Quicken Spell, Spellcraft 30 ranks, ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells.
Benefit: You may cast all 0-, 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-level spells as quickened spells without using higher-level spell slots. The normal limit to the number of quickened spells you may cast per round applies. Spells with a casting time of more than 1 full round can't be quickened.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, the spells of your next three lowest spell levels can now be quickened with no adjustment to their spell slots. This feat doesn't increase the casting time for those spells that normally become full-round actions when cast in metamagic form.

Automatic Silent Spell [Epic]
Prerequisites: Silent Spell, Spellcraft 24 ranks, ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells.
Benefit: You may cast all 0-, 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-level spells as silent spells without using higher-level spell slots.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, the spells of your next three lowest spell levels can now be silenced with no adjustment to their spell slots. This feat doesn't increase the casting time for those spells that normally become full-round actions when cast in metamagic form. However, since bard spells can't be enhanced with the Silent Spell feat, they can't be affected by this feat either.

Automatic Still Spell [Epic]
Prerequisites: Still Spell, Spellcraft 27 ranks, ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells.
Benefit: You may cast all 0-, 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-level spells as stilled spells without using higher-level spell slots.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, the spells of your next three lowest spell levels can now be stilled with no adjustment to their spell slots. This feat doesn't increase the casting time for those spells that normally become full-round actions when cast in metamagic form.

Automatic Tranquil Spell [Epic]
You can cast your lesser spells without word or gesture.
Prerequisites: Silent Spell, Still Spell, Tranquil Spell, Spellcraft 27 ranks.
Benefit: You may cast all 0-, 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-level spells as tranquil spells without using higher-level spell slots.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, the spells of your next three lowest spell levels can now be tranquil with no adjustment to their spell slots.

Avatar of Carnage [Battlemind]
You scream, howl, and foam at the mouth during battle, striking terror into your enemies' hearts. Using the raw force of your personality, you turn your foes into a panicked mob.
Prerequisites: Cha 15, Intimidate 8 ranks, base attack +5.
Uses/Day: A number of times equal to your Charisma bonus (minimum 1).
Duration: A number of rounds equal to 5 + your Charisma modifier.
Benefit: You whip yourself into a howling frenzy, transforming into a figure of overwhelming menace. Your face contorts, your mouth foams, and you screech like a madman. All foes within 60 feet of you suffer an effect based on their Hit Dice. Enemies who have more Hit Dice than you suffer a −1 penalty on attack rolls and checks. Opponents with Hit Dice less than or equal to yours suffer a −2 penalty on attack rolls and checks. Any foe with half your Hit Dice or less is affected as if by cause fear in addition to the −2 penalty. Targets of this ability may negate it with Will saves (DC 10 + half your Hit Dice + your Cha modifier).

Awesome Blow [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Str 25, Power Attack, Improved Bull Rush.
Benefit: As a standard action, you may choose to subtract 4 from your melee attack roll and deliver an awesome blow. If you hit a corporeal opponent smaller than yourself with an awesome blow, your opponent must succeed on a Reflex save (DC = damage dealt) or be knocked flying 10 feet in a direction of your choice and fall prone. You can only push the opponent in a straight line, and the opponent can't move closer to you than the square it started in. If an obstacle prevents the completion of the opponent's move, the opponent and the obstacle each take 1d6 points of damage, and the opponent stops in the space adjacent to the obstacle.

Bane of Enemies [Epic]
Prerequisites: Survival 24 ranks, five or more favored enemies.
Benefit: Any weapon you wield against one of your favored enemies is treated as a bane weapon for that creature type (thus, its enhancement bonus is increased by +2 and it deals +2d6 points of damage). This ability doesn't stack with similar abilities.

Battle Leader [General]
You can lead troops in battle and inspire them to do spectacular deeds.
Prerequisite: Cha 11.
Benefit: You receive a +2 bonus on Profession (military commander) checks. You may give one additional order per battle round as a free action. This free action is over and above any granted by the Profession (military commander) skill.

Blinding Speed [Epic]
Prerequisite: Dex 25.
Benefit: You can act as if hasted for 5 rounds each day. The duration of the effect need not be consecutive rounds. Activating this power is a free action.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it grants an additional 5 rounds of haste per day.

Blind-Fight [Fighter]
Benefit: In melee, every time you miss because of concealment, you can reroll your miss chance percentile roll one time to see if you actually hit.
An invisible attacker gets no advantages related to hitting you in melee. That is, you don't lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class, and the attacker doesn't get the usual +2 bonus for being invisible. The invisible attacker's bonuses do still apply for ranged attacks, however.
You take only half the usual penalty to speed for being unable to see. Darkness and poor visibility in general reduces your speed to three-quarters normal, instead of one-half.
Normal: Regular attack roll modifiers for invisible attackers trying to hit you apply, and you lose your Dexterity bonus to AC. The speed reduction for darkness and poor visibility also applies.
Special: The Blind-Fight feat is of no use against a character who is the subject of a blink spell.

Boar's Hide [General]
In the midst of your rage the blows of lesser weapons become mere annoyances to you.
Prerequisites: Rage class feature, base Fortitude save +6, damage reduction 1/—.
Benefit: If you are already raging, you may expend one of your daily rages to increase your damage reduction by +1/—. This lasts for the duration of your current rage and may be used more than once (its effects stack).

Bold [General]
Benefit: You gain a +4 bonus to saves against fear effects, magical or otherwise.

Bonus Domain [Epic]
Prerequisites: Wis 21, ability to cast 9th-level divine spells.
Benefit: Choose an additional domain from your deity's domain list. You now have access to that domain's spells as normal for your domain spells and the domain's granted powers.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different domain.

Bounding Step [Battlemind]
With a single, seemingly effortless push off the ground, you glide through the air. In effence, you can fly for short distances merely by invoking the power of this feat.
Prerequisites: Fleet-Footed Charge, Mystic Might, Vertical Step, base attack +8.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 4, rounded down.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to your base attack.
Benefit: When you move, you are considered to be flying through the air. At the end of your movement, you land and gain no special bonus to speed. You can choose to take a double move when you use this feat, and you can move directly up, or horizontally from the roof of one building to another, or across a castle's moat. The total distance you move cannot exceed your total movement allowance, but you can go in any direction you want. You can even jump safely down. If you are not over a solid surface when your movement ends, you fall as normal. You may use the run action in conjunction with this feat.

Breath Weapon [Eldritch]
Prerequisites: Con 15, Dragon type, racial Hit Dice.
Benefit: You gain a breath weapon. Choose one of the following types:

Breath TypeDamage per 2 racial HDSpecial
Acid1d6 acidFort save or be nauseated for 1 round
Cold1d8 cold
Fire1d10 fire
Force1d6 force
Gust of air1d6 bludgeoning
Lightning1d8 electricityAlways lines, not cones
Shards1d6 piercing
Sonic1d6 sonicFort save or be deafened for 1 round
Jet of water1d6 bludgeoning

You can choose either a cone (5 feet long per 2 racial HD) or a line (5 feet long per racial HD) when taking this feat. You can use this breath weapon as a supernatural ability as a standard action, but you must wait 1d4+1 rounds before using it again.

Brew Potion [Item Creation]
Prerequisite: Caster level 3rd.
Benefit: You can create a potion of any 3rd-level or lower spell that you know and that targets one or more creatures. Brewing a potion takes one day. When you create a potion, you set the caster level, which must be sufficient to cast the spell in question and no higher than your own level. The base price of a potion is its spell level x its caster level x 1/5 gb. To brew a potion, you must spend 10 times its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one half this base price.
When you create a potion, you make any choices that you would normally make when casting the spell. Whoever drinks the potion is the target of the spell.
Any potion that stores a spell with a costly material component or an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must expend the material component or pay the XP when creating the potion.

Bulwark of Defense [Epic]
Prerequisites: Con 25, defensive stance 3/day.
Benefit: Your defensive stance bonuses increase to +4 Strength, +6 Constitution, +4 resistance bonus on all saves, and +6 dodge bonus to AC.

Cantrip Mastery [General]
You can channel minor magics without draining your resources.
Prerequisite: Arcane caster level 9+.
Benefit: Whenever you cast a cantrip, you do not lose the spell or spell slot (as though you never cast the spell).

Celestial Sorcery [Eldritch]
Your sorcerous talent derives from the power of Heaven, which adds certain divine spells to your spell list.
Prerequisite: Aasimar or angel.
Benefit: The following spells are considered part of your sorcerer spell list (spell level is equal to the spell's cleric spell level, or paladin spell level if no cleric level is listed): aid, bless, create food and water, cure critical wounds, cure light wounds, cure minor wounds, cure moderate wounds, cure serious wounds, dispel evil, flame strike, holy aura, holy smite, holy word, light of heaven, prayer, remove disease, soul beacon, virtue.
These are arcane spells despite their normally divine origin.

Chain Spell [Metamagic]
You can cast spells that arc to hit other targets in addition to the primary target.
Benefit: You can chain any spell that affects a single target and that deals acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic damage. After the primary target is struck, the spell can arc to a number of secondary targets equal to your caster level (maximum twenty). The secondary arcs each strike one target and deal half as much damage as the primary one did (round down).
Each target gets to make a saving throw, if one is allowed by the spell. You choose secondary targets as you like, but they must all be within 30 feet of the primary target, and no target can be struck more than once. You can choose to affect fewer secondary targets than the maximum (to avoid allies in the area, for example).
Using this feat increases the spell's level by 3.

Chaotic Rage [Epic]
Prerequisites: Rage 5/day, chaotic alignment.
Benefit: Any weapon you wield while in a rage is treated as an anarchic weapon (it is chaos-aligned and deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against creatures of lawful alignment). This ability does not stack with similar abilities.

Cleave [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Str 13, Power Attack.
Benefit: If you deal a creature enough damage to make it drop (typically by dropping it to below 0 hit points or killing it), you get an immediate, extra melee attack against another creature within reach. You cannot take a 5-foot step before making this extra attack. The extra attack is with the same weapon and at the same bonus as the attack that dropped the previous creature. You can use this ability once per round.

Close-Rank Combat [Fighter]
You fight in cramped spaces easily.
Benefit: The attack and Armor Class penalty for fighting in confined spaces is reduced by 2.
Normal: Two characters sharing a space in combat suffer a −6 penalty to attacks and a −2 penalty to Armor Class. The attack penalty is reduced by 2 if neither uses two-handed weapons and by 4 if both use only light weapons.

Cold Substitution [Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Any other metamagic feat, Knowledge (magic) 5 ranks.
Benefit: When employing a spell with the acid, electricity, fire, or sonic descriptor, you can modify the spell to use cold instead. The altered spell uses a spell slot of the spell's normal level.
The altered spell works normally in all respects except the type of damage dealt.

Colossal Wild Shape [Wild][Epic]
Prerequisite: The ability to wild shape into a Gargantuan creature.
Benefit: You can use your wild shape to take the shape of a Colossal animal.

Combat Archery [Epic]
Prerequisites: Dodge, Mobility, Point Blank Shot.
Benefit: You do not incur any attacks of opportunity for firing a bow when threatened.

Combat Casting [General]
Benefit: You get a +4 bonus on Concentration checks made to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability while on the defensive or while you are grappling or pinned.

Combat Expertise [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Int 13.
Benefit: When you use the attack action or the full attack action in melee, you can take a penalty of as much as −5 on your attack roll and add the same number (+5 or less) as a dodge bonus to your Armor Class. This number may not exceed your base attack. The changes to attack rolls and Armor Class last until your next action.
Normal: A character without Combat Expertise can fight defensively while using the attack or full attack action to take a −4 penalty on attack rolls and gain a +2 dodge bonus to Armor Class.

Combat Reflexes [Fighter]
Benefit: You may make a number of additional attacks of opportunity equal to your Dexterity bonus.
With this feat, you may also make attacks of opportunity while flat-footed.
Normal: A character without this feat can make only one attack of opportunity per round and can't make attacks of opportunity while flat-footed.
Special: The Combat Reflexes feat does not allow a rogue to use her opportunist ability more than once per round.

Consume Spell [General]
You counter a spell and absorb the energy unleashed to power another spell.
Prerequisite: Caster level 3rd.
Benefit: Whenever you use the counterspell action and successfully counter a spell, you absorb the energy of your opponent's magic and can use part of it to power a spell at least one level lower than it. The powered spell does not disappear when you cast it, or (if you cast spells like a sorcerer) you do not use the spell slot. You must use the power you have absorbed on the next spell you cast or lose it. Consuming a 1st-level spell allows you to cast a 0-level spell. Consuming a 0-level spell does not result in enough energy to use (but the counterspell action works normally).

Craft Construct [Item Creation]
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Craft Wondrous Item.
Benefit: A creature with this feat can create any construct whose prerequisites it meets. Enchanting a construct takes one day for each 4 gb in it base price. To enchant a construct, a spellcaster must spend 10 times the item's base price in XP and use up raw materials costing half of this price (see individual construct monster entries for details).
A creature with this feat can repair constructs that have taken damage. In one day of work, the creature can repair up to 20 points of damage by expending 50 gp per point of damage repaired.
A newly created construct has average hit points for its Hit Dice.

Craft Magic Arms and Armor [Item Creation]
Prerequisite: Caster level 5th.
Benefit: You can create any magic weapon, armor, or shield whose prerequisites you meet. Enhancing a weapon, suit of armor, or shield takes one day for each 4 gb in the price of its magical features. To enhance a weapon, suit of armor, or shield, you must spend 10 times its total price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this total price.
The weapon, armor, or shield to be enhanced must be a masterwork item that you provide. Its cost is not included in the above cost.

The base price of a wand is its caster level x the spell level x 750 gp. To craft a wand, you must spend 10 times its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price. A newly created wand has 50 charges.
Any wand that stores a spell with a costly material component or an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the cost derived from the base price, you must expend fifty copies of the material component or pay fifty times the XP cost.

Damage Reduction [Epic]
Prerequisite: Con 21.
Benefit: You gain damage reduction 3/—. This does not stack with damage reduction granted by magic items or nonpermanent magical effects, but it does stack with any damage reduction granted by permanent magical effects, class features, or this feat itself.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you gains the feat, your damage reduction increases by 3.

Dance of a Feather's Step [Battlemind]
You literally become light as a feather, allowing you to stand in mid-air and fight an opponent with little effort. You gain no special ability to fly, forcing you to leap or use other special abilities to move up or down, but once airborne you are difficult to knock from the sky.
Prerequisites: Bounding Step, Fleet-Footed Charge, Mystic Might, Vertical Step, base attack +16.
Benefit: Once per round you can avoid falling; this is not an action. You can run, jump, and move as normal while in the air, but you cannot run "upward" through the air. You can move downward a total distance equal to your base land speed, and you can descend as part of a normal move at no cost.

Dark Halo [Eldritch]
Darkness loves and embraces you.
Prerequisites: Hide 10 ranks, Cha 17, caster level 9th.
Benefit: You can cast a darkness spell centered on yourself 3/day, and douse at will. You can also display a black halo over your head at will, or hide it as neccessary. You gain a +2 bonus on Diplomacy checks involving evil creatures when displaying this halo.

Deafening Song [Epic]
Prerequisites: Perform 24 ranks, bardic music class feature.
Benefit: You can use song or poetics to temporarily deafen all enemies within a 30-foot spread from you. A successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 your class level + your Charisma modifier) negates the effect. The deafening effect lasts for as long as you continue the deafening song. You can choose to exclude any characters from this effect. You may sing, play, or recite a deafening song while taking other mundane actions, but not magical ones (see the bard's inspire courage ability for more details). You may keep up the deafening song for a maximum of 10 rounds. Using the deafening song counts as one of your uses of song or poetics for the day.

Death Critical [Epic]
Prerequisites: Int 23, Improved Critical (weapon to be chosen), Improved Death Attack, Weapon Focus (weapon to be chosen), death attack class feature.
Benefit: When using the selected weapon, whenever you score a critical hit the target must make a Fortitude save (DC 15 + one-half assassin class level + Intelligence modifier) or die instantly. (Creatures immune to critical hits can't be affected by this feat.)
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different type of weapon.

Death of Enemies [Epic]
Prerequisites: Bane of Enemies, Survival 30 ranks, five or more favored enemies.
Benefit: Any time you score a critical hit against one of your favored enemies, it must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 your ranger class level + your Wisdom modifier) or die instantly.
Special: Creatures immune to critical hits can't be affected by this feat.

Death Strike [Battlemind]
You imbue your weapon with a shimmering halo of black necromantic energy, allowing you to disrupt your opponent's life force. This energy is also baneful to undead creatures, allowing you to destroy them with a single hit.
Prerequisites: Enhance Weapon, Mystic Might, base attack bonus +16.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 8, round down.
Benefit: You deal an extra +2d6 damage with your next attack as the necromantic energy weakens your living foe. In addition, your opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Intelligence modifier). On a failed save, the opponent takes 1d6 points of Strength and Constitution damage.
Unliving creatures do not suffer the effects described above. Undead creatures, however, must instead make a Will save (same DC) or be immediately destroyed.

Deceitful [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Disguise checks and Forgery checks.

Deflect Arrows [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 13, Guarded Unarmed Strike.
Benefit: You must have at least one hand free (holding nothing) to use this feat. Once per round when you would normally be hit with a ranged weapon, you may deflect it so that you take no damage from it. You must be aware of the attack and not flatfooted.
Attempting to deflect a ranged weapon doesn't count as an action. Unusually massive ranged weapons and ranged attacks generated by spell effects can't be deflected.

Deflecting Aura [Battlemind]
You create a sheath of magical force that protects you from harm. Arrows, sword strokes, and axe strikes all rebound from it.
Prerequisites: Mystic Might, base attack +1.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 5, rounded down, +1.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to your base attack.
Benefit: You gain a deflection bonus to your Armor Class equal to one-fifth your base attack, rounded up.

Deft Hands [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Sleight of Hand checks and Use Rope checks.

Delay Spell [Metamagic]
You can cast spells that go off up to 5 rounds later.
Benefit: You can cast a spell as a delayed spell. A delayed spell doesn't activate immediately. When you cast the spell, you choose one of three trigger mechanisms: (1) The spell activates when you take a standard action to activate it; (2) It activates when a creature enters the area that the spell will affect (only spells that affect areas can use this trigger condition); or (3) It activates on your turn after 5 rounds pass. If you choose one of the first two triggers and the conditions are not met within 5 rounds, the spell activates automatically on the fifth round.
Only area and personal spells can be delayed.
Any decisions you would make about the delayed spell, including attack rolls, designating targets, or determining or shaping an area, are decided when the spell is cast. Any effects resolved by those affected by the spell, including saving throws, are decided when the delay period ends.
A delayed spell can be dispelled normally during the delay, and can be detected normally in the area or on the target by the use of spells that can detect magical effects.
Using this feat increases the spell's level by 1.

Destructive Ki [General]
You use your ki to deliver crushing blows.
Prerequisites: Stunning Fist, Toughness, base attack +6.
Benefit: When you use your stunning fist, you can choose to deal +2d6 damage instead of stunning the target. Make this choice before your attack.

Detect Angels and Fiends [General]
You can detect the presence of angels and fiends.
Prerequisites: Wis 13, angel or fiend or spell-like ability to detect evil or detect good.
Benefit: This ability functions similar to detect evil, except that it detects angels and fiends. You automatically ignore your own presence with this ability. On the first round of use, it indicates the presence or absence of angels and fiends. On the second round, it indicates how many angelic and fiendish creatures are present. On the third round, it indicates the creatures' exact locations and relative strength (weaker, equal, or stronger than you). Particularly good or evil objects created by angels or fiends may detect as weakly evil or good. This is a spell-like ability equivalent to a 1st-level spell.

Devastating Critical [Epic]
Prerequisites: Str 25, Cleave, Great Cleave, Improved Critical (chosen weapon), Overwhelming Critical (chosen weapon), Power Attack, Weapon Focus (chosen weapon).
Benefit: Whenever you score a critical hit with the chosen weapon, the target must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Strength modifier) or die instantly. (Creatures immune to critical hits can't be affected by this feat.)
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different type of weapon.

Diehard [General]
Prerequisite: Endurance.
Benefit: When reduced to between −1 and −(Con score − 1) hit points, you automatically become stable. You don't have to roll d% to see if you lose 1 hit point each round.
When reduced to this range of hit points, you may choose to act as if you were disabled, rather than dying. You must make this decision as soon as you are reduced to negative hit points (even if it isn't your turn). If you do not choose to act as if you were disabled, you immediately fall unconscious.
When using this feat, you can take either a single move or standard action each turn, but not both, and you cannot take a full round action. You can take a move action without further injuring yourself, but if you perform any standard action (or any other action deemed as strenuous, including some free actions, such as casting a quickened spell) you take 1 point of damage after completing the act. You don't die until you reach −(10 + your Con score) hit points.
Normal: A character without this feat who is reduced to between −1 and −(Con score − 1) hit points is unconscious and dying, and a character who reaches −(Con score) hit points dies.

Diligent [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Appraise checks and Decipher Script checks.

Diminutive Wild Shape [Wild][Epic]
Prerequisite: Ability to wild shape into a Huge animal.
Benefit: You can use wild shape to take the shape of a Diminutive animal.
Normal: Without this feat, a character cannot wild shape into an animal of smaller than Tiny size.

Dire Charge [Epic]
Prerequisite: Improved Initiative.
Benefit: If you charge a foe during the first round of combat (or the surprise round, if you are allowed to act in it), you can make a full attack against the opponent charged.
Normal: Without this feat, a character may only make a single attack as part of a charge.

Distance Turning [General]
Prerequisites: Ability to turn or rebuke undead, Extra Turning.
Benefit: Your range for turning or rebuking undead is increased by 30 feet.
Special: This feat can be taken multiple times. Its effects stack.

Benefit: You may throw or fire a ranged weapon at any target within line of sight, with no penalty for range.

Divine Might [Divine]
Prerequisites: Str 13, turn or rebuke undead ability, Power Attack.
Benefit: As a free action, spend one of your turn or rebuke undead attempts to add your Charisma bonus to your weapon damage for 1 full round.

Dodge [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Dex 13.
Benefit: During your action, you designate an opponent and receive a +1 dodge bonus to Armor Class against attacks from that opponent. You can select a new opponent on any action.
A condition that makes you lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes you lose dodge bonuses. Also, dodge bonuses stack with each other, unlike most other types of bonuses.

Domain Mastery [Eldritch]
Prerequisites: Mystic level 3+, Priest path, Domain mystic ability.
Benefit: You gain a bonus mystic spell slot at each level. You can use this slot only for domain spells.

Dragon Magic [General]
You learn powerful magic that normally only dragons use.
Prerequisites: Int 13, Cha 15, caster level 3rd, ability to speak Draconic.

Efficient Crafter [Epic][Item Creation]
Prerequisites: Item creation feat, Knowledge (magic) 24 ranks, Spellcraft 24 ranks.
Benefit: Creating magic items requires one day per 40 gb of the item's base price, with a minimum of one day.
Normal: Without this feat, creating a magic item requires one day for each 4 gb of the item's base price.

Electricity Substitution [Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Any other metamagic feat, Knowledge (magic) 5 ranks.
Benefit: When employing a spell with the acid, cold, fire, or sonic descriptor, you can modify the spell to use electricity instead. The altered spell uses a spell slot one level higher than the spell's normal level.
The altered spell works normally in all respects except the type of damage dealt.

Empower Spell [Metamagic]
Benefit: All variable, numeric effects of an empowered spell are increased by one-half.
Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected, nor are spells without random variables. An empowered spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell's actual level.

Empower Spell-Like Ability [General]
Prerequisite: Spell-like ability at caster level 6th or higher.
Benefit: Choose one of the creature's spell-like abilities, subject to the restrictions below. The creature can use that ability as an empowered spell-like ability three times per day (or less, if the ability is normally usable only once or twice per day).
When a creature uses an empowered spell-like ability, all variable, numeric effects of the spell-like ability are increased by one half. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected. Spell-like abilities without random variables are not affected.
The creature can only select a spell-like ability duplicating a spell with a level less than or equal to half its caster level (round down) −2.
Special: This feat can be taken multiple times. Each time it is taken, the creature can apply it to a different one of its spell-like abilities.

Also, you may sleep in light or medium armor without becoming fatigued.
Normal: A character without this feat who sleeps in armor with a check penalty is automatically fatigued the next day.
Special: A ranger automatically gains Endurance as a bonus feat at 3rd level. He need not select it.

Energy Burst [Battlemind]
You focus your arcane power into your weapon, drawing upon energy that you can barely control. With a single, jarring impact, you unleash a burst of fire that consumes your enemies.
Prerequisites: Energy Sheath, Energy Shield, Enhance Weapon, Mystic Might, base attack +12.
Uses/Day: 1.
Benefit: You create a burst of energy that fills a 30-foot spread centered on you. This burst of energy deals 1d6 damage per 2 points of your base attack. Anyone in this area may make Reflex saves (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Intelligence modifier) for half damage. You do not take damage from this effect yourself, as the energy surges around and outward from you.

Energy Feeder [Epic]
The creature is so attuned to one of the energies that compose it that it draws strength from the energy's presence.
Prerequisite: Cold, electricity, fire, or sonic subtype.
Benefit: Select an energy-based subtype possessed by the creature (cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). Instead of merely suffering no damage when subjected to that form of energy, the creature heals damage equal to half the damage that would ordinarily have been inflicted. The remaining half is ignored.
Special: A creature can gain this feat multiple times. Each time a creature takes the feat, it applies to a different subtype.

Energy Resistance [Epic]
Benefit: Choose a type of energy (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). You gains resistance 10 to that type of energy, or your existing resistance to that type of energy increases by 10. This feat does not stack with energy resistance granted by magic items or nonpermanent magical effects.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. If the same type of energy is chosen, the effects stack.

Energy Sheath [Battlemind]
You summon arcane power to bathe your weapon—or even your bare fists—in energy, allowing you to deal extra damage with your strikes.
Prerequisites: Enhance Weapon, Mystic Might, base attack +4.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 4, rounded down.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to half your base attack, rounded down.
Benefit: When you choose this feat, select one of the following energy types: cold, electricity, or fire. Your attacks now deal extra damage of that type, depending on your base attack.
Special: The energy type you choose also applies to the following feats if you select them: Energy Burst, Energy Shield, and Energy Web. When you gain one of those feats, you automatically use the energy type chosen for this feat.
You may select this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you select this feat, choose a different energy type. (Track uses per day separately.)

Base AttackExtra Damage
+4 to +8+1d4
+9 to +14+1d6

Energy Shield [Battlemind]
Your mastery of energy control allows you to resist and attack form involving your specified energy type. You create a field of energy that surrounds you and counters such attacks.
Prerequisites: Energy Sheath, Enhance Weapon, Mystic Might, base attack +8.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 4, rounded down.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to your base attack.
Benefit: You gain resistance to a type of energy chosen for the Energy Sheath feat. The value of the resistance is equal to your base attack, rounded down to a multiple of 5.

Energy Touch [General]
You can exude energy from your hands, increasing your damage in combat.
Prerequisite: Angel or fiend.
Benefit: Choose one type of energy (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). As a free action, you can manifest this energy from one or both hands, dealing an extra +1d6 damage of this type when you make unarmed attacks with your hands (or with any natural attacks you make with your hands, such as claws or slams). You can also make melee touch attacks that deal 1d6 points of damage of the appropriate type. You can manifest this energy for a number of rounds per day equal to your Hit Dice. These rounds need not be sequential.
Special: You may gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time, choose a different type of energy. You may manifest multiple types of energy at once.

Energy Web [Battlemind]
You create a tangible web of searing energy that wraps and tangles around your weapon. When you attack, this web clings to your opponent and continues to damage him for several agonizing seconds.
Prerequisites: Energy Burst, Energy Sheath, Energy Shield, Enhance Weapon, Mystic Might, base attack +16.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 10, rounded down.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to half your base attack, rounded down.
Benefit: You create a web of pure energy that can burn, shock, or freeze and opponent. This web's energy is of the same type as that created by your Energy Sheath feat. If you make a successful melee attack before this ability's duration ends, you transfer the web of energy to your opponent. He takes 1d6 energy damage, plus 1d6 energy damage per 3 points of your base attack in each round, on your turn, until this ability's duration ends. You also gain this extra damage on the attack that transfers the web to the target.
Your opponent may make a Reflex save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Strength modifier) to avoid the web. If he succeeds, you deal the extra energy damage with the attack but he avoids becoming trapped in the web and does not take further damage from it.
A creature caught in an energy web can escape by taking a move action and making a successful Dexterity check or Escape Artist check against the same DC as the Reflex save.

Enhance Spell [Epic][Metamagic]
Prerequisite: Maximize Spell.
Benefit: The damage cap for your spells increases by 10 dice (for spells that deal a number of dice of damage equal to caster level) or by 5 dice (for spells that deal a number of dice of damage equal to half caster level). An enhanced spell uses up a spell slot four levels higher than the spell's actual level. This feat has no effect on spells that don't specifically deal a number of dice of damage equal to the caster's level or half level, even if the spell's effect is largely dictated by the caster's level.
Normal: Without this feat, use the damage dice caps indicated in the spell's description.
Special: You may gain this feat multiple times. Each time you select this feat, the damage cap increases by 10 dice or 5 dice, as appropriate to the spell, and the enhanced spell takes up a spell slot an additional four levels higher.

Enhance Weapon [Battlemind]
Drawing upon the power of magic, you imbue your weapon or fist with an arcane aura that allows you to strike with greater accuracy and to inflict superior damage.
Prerequisites: Mystic Might, base attack +1.
Uses/Day: 3
Duration: 1 minute.
Benefit: You grant a single melee or ranged weapon an enhancement bonus based on your level. This overlaps the weapon's ordinary enhancement bonus.

Benefit: You gain a +4 bonus on Appraise, Bluff, and Diplomacy checks when haggling, fencing goods, or bartering for goods. As well, with a successful Charisma check you can acquire goods that are normally not for sale.

Healing Expert [General]
Prerequisites: Ability to cast cure light wounds, Heal 4 ranks.
Benefit: All your healing spells restore an additional +1 hp per die. This bonus stacks with any level bonus you already receive.

Hellfire Charge [Battlemind]
When charging, you turn yourself into a living projectile that blasts your opponent with a jolt of arcane power.
Prerequisites: Fleet-Footed Charge, Mystic Might, Rhino's Charge, base attack +10.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 10, rounded down.
Benefit: When you use the charge action to attack an opponent, you hurl yourself through the air like a living projectile. The tremendous magical force that you call upon creates a blazing shield of energy around you that scorches your foes. Make a charge as normal. If your attack hits, you deal an extra 5d8 points of force damage in addition to your attack's normal damage, and your foe must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Intelligence modifier) or be blinded for 2d4 rounds. This extra damage is not multiplied on a critical hit or similar effect.
When making this charge, you are considered to be flying. You can move over pits and other hazards, but you land in th space where your charge ends and suffer any drawbacks for standing there after resolving your attack. Activating this ability is a free action.

Heightened Senses [General]
Using acute hearing and sensitivity to vibrations, you can 'see' without your eyes.
Prerequisites: Wis 19, base attack +4, Blind-Fight.
Benefit: You gain blindsense, allowing you to detect creatures and objects within 15 feet. Invisibility and darkness are irrelevant, though you can't discern incorporeal beings.

Heighten Spell [Metamagic]
Benefit: A heightened spell has a higher spell level than normal. Unlike other metamagic feats, Heighten Spell actually increases the effective level of the spell that it modifies. All effects dependent on spell level (such as saving throw DCs and ability to penetrate a lesser globe of invulnerability) are calculated according to the heightened level. The heightened spell is as difficult to prepare and cast as a spell of its effective level.

Hindering Song [Epic]
Prerequisites: Deafening Song, Perform 27 ranks, bardic music class feature.
Benefit: You can use song or poetics to hinder enemy spellcasters within a 30-foot spread from you. To successfully cast a spell within this area, a spellcaster must make a Concentration check as if he or she were casting defensively, and all such checks have a penalty equal to half your level. You can choose to exclude any characters from this effect. You may sing, play, or recite a hindering song while taking other mundane actions, but not magical ones (see the bard's inspire courage ability for more details). You may keep up the hindering song for a maximum of 10 rounds. Using the hindering song counts as one of your uses of song or poetics for the day.

Holy Strike [Epic]
Prerequisites: Smite evil class feature, any good alignment.
Benefit: Any weapon you wield is treated as a holy weapon (is good-aligned and deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against creatures of evil alignment). If the weapon already has an alignment, this feat has no effect on the weapon.

Hover [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Fly speed.
Benefit: When flying, the creature can halt its forward motion and hover in place as a move action. It can then fly in any direction, including straight down or straight up, at half speed, regardless of its maneuverability.
If a creature begins its turn hovering, it can hover in place for the turn and take a full-round action. A hovering creature cannot make wing attacks, but it can attack with all other limbs and appendages it could use in a full attack. The creature can instead use a breath weapon or cast a spell instead of making physical attacks, if it could normally do so.
If a creature of Large size or larger hovers within 20 feet of the ground in an area with lots of loose debris, the draft from its wings creates a hemispherical cloud with a radius of 60 feet. The winds so generated can snuff torches, small campfires, exposed lanterns, and other small, open flames of non-magical origin. Clear vision within the cloud is limited to 10 feet. Creatures have concealment at 15 to 20 feet (20% miss chance). At 25 feet or more, creatures have total concealment (50% miss chance, and opponents cannot use sight to locate the creature).
Those caught in the cloud must succeed on a Concentration check (DC 10 + 1/2 creature's HD) to cast a spell.
Normal: Without this feat, a creature must keep moving while flying unless it has perfect maneuverability.

Ignore Material Components [Epic]
Prerequisites: Eschew Materials, Spellcraft 25 ranks, ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells.
Benefit: You may cast spells without any material components. This feat does not affect the need for a focus or divine focus.

Immediate Spell [Epic][Metamagic]
Prerequisite: Quicken Spell.
Benefit: Casting an immediate spell is an immediate action. You can cast it even when it is not your turn. A spell whose casting time is more than 1 full round action cannot be affected by this feat. An immediate spell uses up a spell slot six levels higher than the spell's actual level. Casting an immediate spell doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity.
Special: This feat can't be applied to any spell cast spontaneously (including sorcerer spells, bard spells, and cleric or druid spells cast spontaneously), since applying a metamagic feat to a spontaneously cast spell automatically increases the casting time to a full-round action.

Improved Ability Focus [Epic]
The creature has improved its talent with one of its attacks to astonishing levels.
Prerequisites: Ability Focus with special attack, special attack.
Benefit: Choose one of the creature's special attacks. Add +2 to the DC for all saving throws against the special attack on which the creature focuses. This bonus stacks with the bonus from Ability Focus.
Special: A creature can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time the creature takes the feat it applies to a different special attack.

Improved Absorb Damage [General]
Prerequisites: Absorb Damage, Endurance, greater rage class feature.
Benefit: When you forgo the Constitution bonus from your rage ability for Absorb Damage, you gain 2 temporary hit points per Hit Die instead of 1.

Improved Alignment-Based Casting [Epic]
Prerequisites: Chaos domain, Evil domain, Good domain, or Law domain, alignment must match domain chosen, ability to cast 9th-level divine spells.
Benefit: Select an alignment-based domain (Chaos, Evil, Good, or Law) to which you have access. You cast spells with that alignment descriptor at +3 caster level.
Special: This benefit overrides (does not stack with) the granted powers of the Chaos, Evil, Good, and Law domains. You may select this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different alignment-based domain to which you have access.

Improved Arrow of Death [Epic]
Prerequisites: Dex 19, Wis 19, Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, arrow of death class feature.
Benefit: Add +2 to the DC of your arrows of death.

Prerequisites: Str 30, Awesome Blow, Improved Bull Rush, Power Attack.
Benefit: As Awesome Blow, but the opponent is knocked 10 feet, plus 10 additional feet for every point of Strength bonus above +10 possessed by the creature.

Improved Bull Rush [Fighter]

Benefit: You don't incur attacks of opportunity for casting spells when threatened.

Improved Combat Reflexes [Epic]

Normal: Without this feat, you may counter a spell only with the same spell or with a spell specifically designated as countering the target spell.

Improved Critical [Fighter]
Choose one type of weapon.
Prerequisites: Proficient with weapon, base attack +8.
Benefit: When using the weapon you selected, your threat range is doubled.

Improved Death Attack [Epic]
Prerequisites: Death attack class feature, sneak attack +5d6.
Benefit: Add +2 to the DC of your death attack.
Special: This feat may be taken multiple times. Its effects stack.

Improved Disarm [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Int 13, Combat Expertise.
Benefit: You do not provoke an attack of opportunity when you attempt to disarm an opponent, nor does the opponent have a chance to disarm you. You also gain a +4 bonus on the opposed attack roll you make to disarm your opponent.
Normal: See the normal disarm rules.

Improved Elemental Wild Shape [Wild][Epic]
Prerequisites: Wis 25, ability to wild shape into an elemental.
Benefit: Your ability to wild shape into an elemental is expanded to include all elemental creatures (not just air, earth, fire, and water elementals) of any size that you can take when using wild shape to become an animal. You gain all extraordinary and supernatural abilities of the elemental whose form he or she takes.
Normal: Without this feat, you may only wild shape into a Small, Medium, or Large air, earth, fire, or water elemental.

Improved Familiar [General]
This feat allows spellcasters to acquire a new familiar from a nonstandard list, but only when they could normally acquire a new familiar.
Prerequisites: Ability to acquire a new familiar, compatible alignment, sufficiently high level (see below).
Benefit: When choosing a familiar, the creatures listed below are also available to the spellcaster. The spellcaster may choose a familiar with an alignment up to one step away on each of the alignment axes (lawful through chaotic, good through evil).

FamiliarAlignmentArcane Spellcaster Level
Shocker lizardNeutral5th
StirgeNeutral5th
Formian workerLawful neutral7th
ImpLawful evil7th
PseudodragonNeutral good7th
QuasitChaotic evil7th

Improved familiars otherwise use the rules for regular familiars, with two exceptions: If the creature's type is something other than animal, its type does not change; and improved familiars do not gain the ability to speak with other creatures of their kind (although many of them already have the ability to communicate).
The list in the table above presents only a few possible improved familiars. Almost any creature of the same general size and power as those on the list makes a suitable familiar. Nor is the master's alignment the only possible categorization. For instance, improved familiars could be assigned by the master's creature type or subtype, as shown below.

FamiliarType/SubtypeArcane Spellcaster Level
Celestial hawk1Good3rd
Fiendish Tiny viper snake2Evil3rd

Improved Favored Enemy [Epic]
Prerequisite: Five or more favored enemies.

Special: Regardless of the number of arrows you fire, you only apply precision-based damage (such as sneak attack damage or the ranger's favored enemy bonus) once. If you score a critical hit, only one of the arrows deals critical damage (your choice); all others deal normal damage.
As with Manyshot, use of this feat risks raising the DM's ire.
Normal: With the Manyshot feat, you are limited to a maximum of four arrows fired (when your base attack is +16 or higher).

Improved Metamagic [Epic]

Improved Multiweapon Fighting [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 15, three or more arms, Multiweapon Fighting, base attack +9.

Improved Natural Armor [General]

Special: A creature can gain this feat multiple times. Each time the creature takes the feat its natural armor bonus increases by another point.

Improved Natural Attack [General]
Prerequisites: Natural weapon, base attack +4.
Benefit: Choose one of the creature's natural attack forms. The damage for this natural weapon increases by one step, as if the creature's size had increased by one category: 1d2, 1d3, 1d4, 1d6, 1d8, 2d6, 3d6, 4d6, 6d6, 8d6, 12d6.
A weapon or attack that deals 1d10 points of damage increases as follows: 1d10, 2d8, 3d8, 4d8, 6d8, 8d8, 12d8.
Special: This feat may be taken multiple times, but each time it applies to a different natural attack.

Benefit: When you use Power Attack, treat light weapons as one-handed weapons.

Improved Precise Shot [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 19, Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, base attack +11.
Benefit: Your ranged attacks ignore the AC bonus granted to targets by anything less than total cover, and the miss chance granted to targets by anything less than total concealment. Total cover and total concealment provide their normal benefits against your ranged attacks.
In addition, when you shoot or throw ranged weapons at a grappling opponent, you automatically strike at the opponent you have chosen.
Normal: See the normal rules on the effects of cover and concealment. Without this feat, a character who shoots or throws a ranged weapon at a target involved in a grapple must roll randomly to see which grappling combatant the attack strikes.
Special: An 11th-level ranger who has chosen the archery combat style is treated as having Improved Precise Shot, even if he does not have the prerequisites for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

Improved Shield Bash [Fighter]

Benefit: Add +1d6 to your sneak attack damage.
Special: This feat may be taken multiple times. Its effects stack.

Improved Spell Capacity [Epic]
Prerequisite: Ability to cast spells of the normal maximum spell level in at least one spellcasting class.
Benefit: When you select this feat, you gain one spell slot per day of any level up to one level higher than the highest-level spell you can already cast in a particular class. You must still have the requisite ability score (10 + spell level) in order to cast any spell stored in this slot. If you have a high enough ability modifier to gain one or more bonus spells for this spell level, he or she also gains the bonus spells for this spell level. You must use the spell slot as a member of the class in which he or she can already cast spells of the normal maximum spell level.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times.
Spell Slots Above 9th Level
The Improved Spell Capacity feat allows characters to gain spell slots above 9th level (which can be used to hold lower-level spells or spells whose level has been increased beyond 9th by the use of metamagic feats).
A character with a very high score in the ability associated with his or her spellcasting (Intelligence for wizards; Wisdom for clerics, druids, paladins, and rangers; or Charisma for bards and sorcerers) may receive bonus spells of those levels, as shown on Table: Expanded Ability Modifiers and Bonus Spells, but only if they already have at least one spell slot of that level (such as from the Improved Spell Capacity feat). A character without any spell slots of a level can't receive any bonus spells of that level, even if the appropriate ability score is high enough to award them.
Even though the table only includes ability scores up to 61 and spell slots up to 25th level, the progression continues infinitely in both directions. For ability scores beyond 61, or for spell slots above 25th level, expand the table to follow the same patterns as shown.

The allies gain +4 to Strength, +4 to Constitution, and a +2 morale bonus on Will saves, but take a −2 penalty to AC, for as long as they remain raging. The rage of affected allies lasts a number of rounds equal to 3 + their Constitution modifier, regardless of whether they remain within 60 feet of you. This is otherwise identical with normal barbarian rage (including the fatigue at its end).
Special: This is a mind-affecting effect.

Inescapable Assassination [Epic]
Prerequisites: Improved Death Attack, sneak attack +14d6, death attack class feature, crippling strike class feature.
Benefit: When you make a death attack with the full 3 rounds of preparation, if you deal damage, the target gains a grievous wound. Every round after the first, the target takes damage equal to your number of sneak attack dice and must make a new save against the death attack. The process only stops if the target fails (dying or being paralyzed, at your option) or beats the save DC by at least 20 (negating the effect).

Infernal Sorcery [Eldritch]
Your sorcerous talent derives from the power of Hell, which adds certain divine spells to your spell list.
Prerequisite: Fiend or tiefling.
Benefit: The following spells are considered part of your sorcerer spell list (spell level is equal to the spell's cleric spell level, or its domain level if no cleric level is listed): animate dead, bane, blasphemy, create undead, create greater undead, death knell, deeper darkness, desecrate, dispel good, doom, fires of Hell, flame strike, prayer, produce flame, demon's breath, unhallow, unholy aura, unholy blight.
These are arcane spells despite their normally divine origin.

Infinite Deflection [Epic]
Prerequisites: Dex 25, Combat Reflexes, Deflect Arrows, Guarded Unarmed Strike.
Benefit: You may perform any number of deflections each round, as the Deflect Arrows feat.

Infinite Spells [Epic]
Lesser spells do not require an expenditure of energies for you.
Prerequisites: Cantrip Mastery, arcane caster level 9+.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time it increases the power of the spells you can cast infinitely by 2 levels.

Inflict and Cure [Epic]
You can spontaneously cast cure or inflict spells, regardless of your alignment or your deity's alignment.
Prerequisites: Able to spontaneously cast spells as cure or inflict spells, Healing domain, Death domain, Heal 24 ranks, Knowledge (religion) 24 ranks.
Benefit: Any spells you could spontaneously cast as cure spells can now also be cast as inflict spells, and vice versa. For example, a good cleric with this feat could now spontaneously cast inflict spells or cure spells as desired, given the normal limits to spontaneous casting (available non-domain spells, and so on).

Inspire Dread [Epic]
Your chant, song, or other performance strikes fear into your foes.
Prerequisites: Perform 27 ranks, bardic music class feature.
Benefit: You can use a bardic music inspiration ability to strike fear into any foes within hearing range (generally 60 feet). The effects depend on their Hit Dice (see Table) and last as long as your performance, to a maximum of 10 minutes. Foes can resist this effect with a Will save (DC = your Perform check). This is a mind-affecting fear effect.

Hit DiceEffect*
Less than one-quarter your Perform ranksCowering
Less than half your Perform ranksMove actions only
Less than your Perform ranksShaken
Less than double your Perform ranks−2 AC
* These effects are cumulative; use all that apply.

Inspire Excellence [Epic]
Prerequisites: Perform 30 ranks, bardic music class feature.
Benefit: You can use song or poetics to grant a bonus to one ability score to your allies. To be affected, an ally must hear the bard sing for 1 full round. The effect lasts as long as the bard sings and for 5 rounds after the bard stops singing (or 5 rounds after the ally can no longer hear the bard). While singing, the bard can fight but cannot cast spells, activate magic items by spell completion (such as scrolls), or activate magic items by command word (such as wands). Each ally to be inspired gains a +4 competence bonus to the same ability score, which you must choose before you begin inspiring. Inspire excellence is a supernatural, mind-affecting ability. Use of this feat counts as one of your bardic music uses for the day.
Special: This feat is treated as a bardic music inspiration ability for purposes of feats that affect such abilities.

Instant Reload [Epic]
Prerequisites: Quick Draw, Rapid Reload, Weapon Focus (crossbow type to be selected).
Benefit: You may fire the selected type of crossbow at your full normal attack rate. Reloading the crossbow does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Intensify Spell [Epic][Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Empower Spell, Maximize Spell, Spellcraft 30 ranks, ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells.
Benefit: All variable, numeric effects of an intensified spell are maximized, then doubled. An intensified spell deals twice maximum damage, cures twice the maximum number of hit points, affects twice the maximum number of targets, and so forth, as appropriate. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected. An intensified spell uses up a spell slot seven levels higher than the spell's actual level. You can't combine the effects of this feat with any other feat that affects the variable, numeric effects of a spell.

Investigator [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Gather Information checks and Search checks.

Iron Will [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Will saving throws.

Keen Strike [Epic]
Prerequisites: Str 23, Wis 23, Improved Critical (unarmed strike), Guarded Unarmed Strike, Stunning Fist, ki strike (adamantine).
Benefit: Your unarmed strike has a critical threat range of 18–20 and deals slashing damage (at your option any attack can deal bludgeoning damage, but cannot then take advantage of the enhanced threat range). This ability doesn't stack with other abilities that expand your unarmed strike's threat range.

Keymaster [General]
You pick locks faster than anyone.
Prerequisite: Open Lock 8 ranks.
Benefit: You can make an Open Lock check as a standard action instead of a full-round action, and can disable a trap in the same amount of time. If you take 20 on an Open Lock check, you take just one minute to make the attempt.
Normal: Opening a lock or disabling a device is a full-round action and takes 2 minutes to take 20. (Some locks and devices take longer.)

You summon a burst of kinetic energy to augment your attack, allowing you to deliver a mighty jolt that knocks an opponent backward.
Prerequisites: Enhance Weapon, Mystic Might, Power Attack, base attack +3.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 3, rounded down.
Benefit: Your mighty attacks sends foes reeling. You must decide to use this ability before attempting a single attack. If your attack hits, your foe must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Intelligence modifier). If this save fails, you knock your opponent bckward a number of feet equal to the points of damage inflicted (to a maximum number of feet equal to your base attack). If your attack misses, this use of the ability is wasted.

Benefit: You get a +1 bonus on all Knowledge skills and a +1 bonus on bardic knowledge checks.

Lasting Inspiration [Epic]
Prerequisites: Perform 25 ranks, bardic music class feature.

Prerequisites: Enhance Weapon, Flattening Strike, Knockback Strike, Mystic Might, Power Attack, base attack +16.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 8, rounded down.
Benefit: You must decide to use this ability before making a single attack. If your attack hits, your foe must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Intelligence modifier). If this save fails, your foe flies straight up a number of feet equal to double the points of damage you inflicted (maximum twice your base attack). He immediately falls, landing prone in the space he occupied before you launched him, and suffers falling damage as normal. If your attack misses, this use of the ability is wasted.

Lay on Hands [General]
Prerequisites: Cha 13, Healing Expert, Good domain or Healing domain, ability to cast cure light wounds, Heal 4 ranks.
Benefit: You can lay on hands as a paladin of your character level. This is a supernatural ability.

Leadership [General]
See leadership calculator.
Prerequisite: Character level 6th.
Benefit: Having this feat enables you to attract loyal companions and devoted followers, subordinates who assist you. See the table below for what sort of cohort and how many followers you can recruit.
Leadership Modifiers: Several factors can affect a character's Leadership score, causing it to vary from the base score (character level + Cha modifier). A character's reputation (from the point of view of the cohort or follower he is trying to attract) raises or lowers his Leadership score:

Leader's ReputationModifier
Great renown+2
Fairness and generosity+1
Special power+1
Failure−1
Aloofness−1
Cruelty−2

Other modifiers may apply when you try to attract a cohort:

The Leader . . .Modifier
Has a familiar, special mount, or animal companion−2
Recruits a cohort of a different alignment−1
Caused the death of a cohort−21
1 Cumulative per cohort killed.

Followers have different priorities from cohorts. When you try to attract a new follower, use any of the following modifiers that apply.

The Leader . . .Modifier
Has a stronghold, base of operations, guildhouse, or the like+2
Moves around a lot−1

Leadership Score: A character's base Leadership score equals his level plus any Charisma modifier. In order to take into account negative Charisma modifiers, this table allows for very low Leadership scores, but you must still be 6th level or higher in order to gain the Leadership feat. Outside factors can affect a character's Leadership score, as detailed above.
Cohort Level: You can attract a cohort of up to this level. Regardless of your Leadership score, you can only recruit a cohort who is two or more levels lower than yourself. The cohort should be equipped with gear appropriate for its level. A character can try to attract a cohort of a particular race, class, and alignment. The cohort's alignment may not be opposed to the leader's alignment on either the law-vs-chaos or good-vs-evil axis, and the leader takes a Leadership penalty if he recruits a cohort of an alignment different from his own.
Cohorts earn XP as follows:
The cohort does not count as a party member when determining the party's XP.
Divide the cohort's level by the your level and multiply this result by the total XP you were awarded. Add that number of experience points to the cohort's total.
If a cohort gains enough XP to bring it to a level one lower than your ECL, the cohort does not gain the new level—its new XP total is 1 less than the amount needed attain the next level.

Number of Followers by Level: You can lead up to the indicated number of characters of each level. Followers are similar to cohorts, except they're generally low-level NPCs. Because they're generally five or more levels behind you, they're rarely effective in combat.
Followers don't earn experience and thus don't gain levels. However, when a character with Leadership attains a new level, the player consults the table above to determine if she has acquired more followers, some of which may be higher level than the existing followers. (You don't consult the table to see if your cohort gains levels, however, because cohorts earn experience on their own.)

To use this ability, make a Ride check (DC = 20 + ½ the damage dealt). If the check succeeds, the mount takes only half damage from the blow; if it fails, the mount takes full damage. You must be aware of the attack and able to react to it in order to use this ability—if you are denied your Dexterity bonus to AC, you can't use this ability.

Manyshot [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 17, Point Blank Shot, Rapid Shot, base attack +6.
Benefit: As a standard action, you may fire two arrows at a single opponent within 30 feet. Both arrows use the same attack roll (with a −4 penalty) to determine success and deal damage normally (but see Special).
For every five points of base attack you have above +6, you may add one additional arrow to this attack, to a maximum of four arrows at a base attack of +16. However, each arrow after the second adds a cumulative −2 penalty on the attack roll (for a total penalty of −6 for three arrows and −8 for four).
Damage reduction and other resistances apply separately against each arrow fired.
Special: Regardless of the number of arrows you fire, you apply precision-based damage only once. If you score a critical hit, only the first arrow fired deals critical damage; all others deal regular damage.
A 6th-level ranger who has chosen the archery combat style is treated as having Manyshot even if he does not have the prerequisites for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

Mass Spell [Metamagic]
Benefit: Spells with a single target prepared with this feat instead affect one target per caster level. The range becomes close (but all targets must be within 30 feet). The spell takes up a slot 4 levels higher than normal. This feat does not affect personal spells.

Mass Turning [General]
You can turn large numbers of undead at once. The following parameters apply eqully to attempts to bolster, rebuke, or command undead (if you channel negative energy).
Prerequisites: Extra Turning, Widen Spell.
Benefit: As a full-round action, you can make a turning attempt that covers a large area and affects a significant number of creatures. The area of the turning effect and the turning damage both increase by a factor of 10—thus, a turning effect covers a 600-foot burst and deals 10 times its normal turning damage. The Charisma check you make for a turning attemt, however, still determines the maximum Hit Dice of the creatures you can affect.
A mass turning attempt uses up three of your daily uses of the turn undead ability.
Special: You can choose this feat more than once, but its effects don't stack. Each time you take this feat it applies to a different kind of turning capability (e.g. the granted power of the Fire domain).

You cannot emulate a charge for a staff function that does not match a specific spell.

Prerequisites: Craft Wand, Spellcraft 15 ranks.
Benefit: When you activate a wand, you can substitute a spell slot instead of using a charge.

Dodge bonuses stack with each other, unlike most types of bonuses.

Mounted Archery [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Ride 1 rank, Mounted Combat.
Benefit: The penalty you take when using a ranged weapon while mounted is halved: −2 instead of −4 if your mount is taking a double move, and −4 instead of −8 if your mount is running.

Prerequisite: Ride 1 rank.
Benefit: Once per round when your mount is hit in combat, you may attempt a Ride check (as a reaction) to negate the hit.

Positive Energy Aura [Epic]
Prerequisites: Cha 25, ability to turn undead, ability to cast dispel evil.
Benefit: Every undead creature that comes within 15 feet of you is automatically affected as if you had turned it. This doesn't cost a turning attempt, and you don't have to roll turning damage (it automatically affects all undead in a 15-foot burst), but it only turns undead with Hit Dice equal to or less than your effective cleric level minus 10 (and automatically destroys undead with Hit Dice less than or equal to half this amount). Just as with normal turning, you can't affect undead that have total cover relative to you.

Power Attack [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Str 13.
Benefit: On your action, before making attack rolls for a round, you may choose to subtract a number from all melee attack rolls and add the same number to all melee damage rolls. This number may not exceed your base attack. The penalty on attacks and bonus on damage apply until your next turn.
Special: If you attack with a two-handed weapon, or with a one-handed weapon wielded in two hands, instead add twice the number subtracted from your attack rolls. You can't add the bonus from Power Attack to the damage dealt with a light weapon (except with unarmed strikes or natural weapon attacks), even though the penalty on attack rolls still applies. (Normally, you treat a double weapon as a one-handed weapon and a light weapon. If you choose to use a double weapon like a two-handed weapon, attacking with only one end of it in a round, you treat it as a two-handed weapon.)

Powerful Magic [General]
Prerequisites: Greater Spell Focus (conjuration or evocation), Spell Focus (conjuration), Spell Focus (evocation), Knowledge (magic) 10 ranks.
Benefit: When you cast a spell that deals hit point damage in dice per level, you deal one extra die of that spell's type. For example, a fireball from a 10th-level caster would deal 11d6 points of fire damage.

Precise Shot [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Point Blank Shot.
Benefit: You can shoot or throw ranged weapons at an opponent engaged in melee without taking the standard −4 penalty on your attack roll.

Quick Draw [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Base attack +1.
Benefit: You can draw a weapon as a free action instead of as a move action. You can draw a hidden weapon (see the Sleight of Hand skill) as a move action.
You may throw weapons at your full normal rate of attacks (much like a character with a bow).
Normal: Without this feat, you may draw a weapon as a move action, or (if your base attack is +1 or higher) as a free action as part of movement. Without this feat, you can draw a hidden weapon as a standard action.

Quick Wild Shape [Wild]
Prerequisite: Ability to wild shape.
Benefit: You can wild shape as a move action.
Normal: Using wild shape takes a standard action.

Quicken Spell [Metamagic]
Benefit: Casting a quickened spell is a free action. You can perform another action, even casting another spell, in the same round as you cast a quickened spell. You may cast only one quickened spell per round. A spell whose casting time is more than 1 full round action cannot be quickened. A quickened spell uses up a spell slot four levels higher than the spell's actual level. Casting a quickened spell doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity.
Special: This feat can't be applied to any spell cast spontaneously (including sorcerer spells, bard spells, and cleric or druid spells cast spontaneously), since applying a metamagic feat to a spontaneously cast spell automatically increases the casting time to a full-round action.

Quicken Spell-Like Ability [General]
Prerequisite: Spell-like ability at caster level 10th or higher.
Benefit: Choose one of the creature's spell-like abilities, subject to the restrictions described below. The creature can use that ability as a quickened spell-like ability three times per day (or less, if the ability is normally usable only once or twice per day).
Using a quickened spell-like ability is a free action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. The creature can perform another action—including the use of another spell-like ability—in the same round that it uses a quickened spell-like ability. The creature may use only one quickened spell-like ability per round.
The creature can only select a spell-like ability duplicating a spell with a level less than or equal to half its caster level (round down) −4.
In addition, a spell-like ability that duplicates a spell with a casting time greater than 1 full round cannot be quickened.
Normal: Normally the use of a spell-like ability requires a standard action and provokes an attack of opportunity unless noted otherwise.
Special: This feat can be taken multiple times. Each time it is taken, the creature can apply it to a different one of its spell-like abilities.

Ranged Inspiration [Epic]
Prerequisites: Bardic music class feature, Perform 25 ranks.
Benefit: Double the range of any bardic music ability that has a range. (If the creature must hear the bard to be affected by the ability, that requirement doesn't change regardless of any extended range the bard's ability may have.)
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects stack. Remember that two doublings equals a tripling, and so forth.

Rapid Inspiration [Epic]
Prerequisites: Perform 23 ranks, bardic music class feature.
Benefit: You can use any of your bardic music inspiration abilities as a free action. The inspiration takes effect immediately.

Rapid Reload [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Proficiency with some crossbow.
Benefit: The time required for you to reload crossbows is reduced to a free action (for a hand or light crossbow) or a move action (for a heavy crossbow). Reloading a crossbow still provokes an attack of opportunity.
You may fire a hand crossbow or light crossbow as many times in a full attack action as you could attack if you were using a bow.
Normal: A character without this feat needs a move action to reload a hand or light crossbow, or a full-round action to reload a heavy crossbow.

Rapid Shot [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 13, Point Blank Shot.
Benefit: You can get one extra attack per round with a ranged weapon. The attack is at your highest base attack, but each attack you make in that round (the extra one and the normal ones) takes a −2 penalty. You must use the full attack action to use this feat.
Special: A 2nd-level ranger who has chosen the archery combat style is treated as having Rapid Shot, even if he does not have the prerequisites for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

Rapid Summons [General]
Prerequisites: Greater Spell Focus (Conjuration), Quicken Spell, Spell Focus (Conjuration).
Benefit: Conjuration (summoning) spells with casting time of 1 round are reduced to a casting time of 1 standard action.
Summoned creatures may act immediately on the caster's action.

Reach Spell [Metamagic]
Benefit: You may cast a spell that normally has a range of touch at any distance up to 30 feet. The spell effectively becomes a ray, so you must succeed at a ranged touch attack to bestow the spell upon the recipient. A reach spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell's actual level.

Reactive Countersong [Epic]
Prerequisites: Combat Reflexes, Perform 30 ranks, bardic music class feature.
Benefit: You can begin a countersong at any time, even when it isn't your turn (much like a wizard who has readied a counterspell action), though you don't have to ready an action to do so. You can't use Reactive Countersong at the same time you are using another bardic music ability (though you could stop the other bardic music ability to begin Reactive Countersong if so desired).
Normal: Without this feat, a character can only use countersong on his or her turn.

Reality Shaper [Epic][Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Cha 23, Iron Will, Knowledge (arcana) 20 ranks, Knowledge (magic) 10 ranks, arcane caster level 21st, ability to cast limited wish or wish.
Benefit: The XP cost for casting wish is reduced by 4,500. The XP cost for casting limited wish is reduced by 300.

Reflect Arrows [Epic]
Prerequisites: Dex 25, Deflect Arrows, Guarded Unarmed Strike.
Benefit: When you deflect an arrow or other ranged attack, the attack is reflected back upon the attacker at your ranged attack bonus (base attack + Dexterity modifier).

Repeat Spell [Metamagic]
Prerequisite: Any other metamagic feat.
Benefit: A repeated spell is automatically cast again at the beginning of your next round of actions. No matter where you are, the secondary spell originates from the same location and affects the same area as the primary spell. If the repeated spell designates a target, the secondary spell retargets the same target if the target is within 30 feet of its original position; otherwise the secondary spell fails to go off. A repeated spell uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell's actual level. Repeat Spell cannot be used on spells with a range of touch.

Rhino's Charge [Battlemind]
As you rush forward in a charge, you create a crackling wedge of energy in front of you that can knock aside a foe and shock him with force.
Prerequisites: Fleet-Footed Charge, Mystic Might, base attack +5.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 5, rounded down.
Benefit: When you use the charge action to attack an opponent, you deal an extra +2d8 force damage on a successful attack. In addition, your foe must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Intelligence modifier) or be knocked prone by the concusive force. If your attack misses, your foe does not have to mke the save and this use of the ability is wasted. Activating this ability is a free action.

Ride-By Attack [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Ride 1 rank, Mounted Combat.
Benefit: When you are mounted and use the charge action, you may move and attack as if with a standard charge and then move again (continuing the straight line of the charge). Your total movement for the round can't exceed double your mounted speed. You and your mount do not provoke an attack of opportunity from the opponent that you attack.

Righteous Strike [Epic]
Prerequisites: Wis 19, Guarded Unarmed Strike, Stunning Fist, any lawful alignment.
Benefit: Your unarmed strike is treated as an axiomatic weapon (it is lawfully aligned and deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against creatures of chaotic alignment). This ability doesn't stack with similar abilities.

Ruinous Rage [Epic]
Prerequisites: Str 25, Improved Sunder, Power Attack, rage 5/day.
Benefit: While in a rage, you ignore the hardness of any object you strike. Also, double your Strength bonus for the purposes of any Strength check made to break an object with sudden force rather than by dealing normal damage (including bursting bindings, such as ropes or manacles).

Run [General]
Benefit: When running, you move five times your normal speed (if wearing medium, light, or no armor and carrying no more than a medium load) or four times your speed (if wearing heavy armor or carrying a heavy load). If you make a jump after a running start (see the Jump skill description), you gain a +4 bonus on your Jump check. While running, you retain your Dexterity bonus to AC.
Normal: You move four times your speed while running (if wearing medium, light, or no armor and carrying no more than a medium load) or three times your speed (if wearing heavy armor or carrying a heavy load), and you lose your Dexterity bonus to AC.

Sacred Spell [Metamagic]
You can cast spells imbued with divine energy.
Benefit: Half of the damage dealt by a sacred spell is converted into divine energy, and as such is not prevented by abilities or spells that reduce or prevent damage from a particular type of energy. Additionally, such spells gaon the Good descriptor. Only divine spells that deal damage may be made into sacred spells.
A sacred spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Scribe Epic Scroll [Item Creation][Epic]
Prerequisites: Scribe Scroll, Knowledge (magic) 24 ranks, Spellcraft 24 ranks.
Benefit: You can scribe scrolls that exceed the normal limits for such items. Even this feat does not allow you to scribe a scroll with an epic spell.

Scribe Scroll [Item Creation]
Prerequisite: Caster level 1st.
Benefit: You can create a scroll of any spell that you know. Scribing a scroll takes one day for each 4 gb in its base price. The base price of a scroll is its spell level x its caster level x 1/10 gb. To scribe a scroll, you must spend 10 times its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price.
Any scroll that stores a spell with a costly material component or an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must expend the material component or pay the XP when scribing the scroll.

Self-Concealment [Epic]
Prerequisites: Dex 30, Hide 30 ranks, Tumble 30 ranks, improved evasion.
Benefit: Attacks against you have a 10% miss chance, similar to the effect of concealment. You lose this benefit whenever you would lose your Dexterity bonus to AC.
Special: This feat may be taken multiple times. Each time it is taken, the miss chance increases by 10% to a maximum of 50% after it has been taken five times.

Self-Sufficient [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Heal checks and Survival checks.

Serpent-Eyed Strike [Battlemind]
You twirl your blade or other melee weapon in a hypnotic pattern, weaving an arcane matrix that lulls one of your foes into a state of distraction. With his defenses down, you can strike him more easily.
Prerequisites: Cha 13, Mystic Might, base attack +1.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 5, rounded down, +1.
Benefit: You use this ability by taking a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. Choose a single target that you can see. This foe must make a Will save (DC 10 + half your base attack + your Charisma modifier) or lose his Dexterity bonus to Armor Class against your attacks (and only your attacks) for 1d6 rounds. This is a mind-affecting ability.

Shattering Strike [Epic]
Prerequisites: Epic Weapon Focus, Weapon Focus (unarmed strike), Concentration 25 ranks, ki strike (adamantine).
Benefit: When using an unarmed strike to attempt to break an object with sudden force (rather than by dealing normal damage), make a Concentration check rather than a Strength check. The break DC remains the same. Using Shattering Strike is a full-round action that incurs attacks of opportunity. You can't use Shattering Strike to escape bonds (unless you are so bound as to allow you to make an unarmed strike against your bindings).

Shield Charge [Fighter]
Prerequisite: Shield Proficiency.
Benefit: When using a shield, you do not suffer the normal −2 penalty to Armor Class when charging.

Shield Proficiency [General]
Benefit: You can use a shield and take only the standard penalties.
Normal: When you are using a shield with which you are not proficient, you take the shield's armor check penalty on attack rolls and on all skill checks that involve moving, including Ride checks.
Special: Barbarians, bards, clerics, druids, fighters, paladins, and rangers automatically have Shield Proficiency as a bonus feat. They need not select it.

Shot on the Run [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 13, Dodge, Mobility, Point Blank Shot, base attack +4.
Benefit: When using the attack action with a ranged weapon, you can move both before and after the attack, provided that your total distance moved is not greater than your speed.

Silent Kill [General]
Your sneak attacks are silent.
Prerequisites: Sneak attack +1d6, Move Silently 6 ranks, base attack +3.
Benefit: You strike to kill without noise, either by attacking the mouth and throat or by inflicting enough pain to prevent an alarm. If you surprise your target while making a sneak attack, the surprise round of combat is entirely silent and does not attract attention. You gain a +8 circumstance bonus on your initiative check for the combat. If you kill your target before it can act, the target dies without a sound.

Silent Spell [Metamagic]
Benefit: A silent spell can be cast with no verbal components. Spells without verbal components are not affected. A silent spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.
Special: Bard spells cannot be enhanced by this metamagic feat.

Simple Weapon Proficiency [General]
Benefit: You make attack rolls with simple weapons normally.
Normal: When using a weapon with which you are not proficient, you take a −4 penalty on attack rolls.
Special: All characters except for druids, mystics, and wizards are automatically proficient with all simple weapons. They need not select this feat.

Skill Focus [General]
Benefit: Choose a skill. You get a +3 bonus on all checks involving that skill.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new skill.

Slashing Arrows [Fighter]
You can shoot arrows so they graze targets, rather than pierce them.
Prerequisites: Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, base attack +3.
Benefit: You can choose to inflict slashing instead of piercing damage with a bow or crossbow that is one die size smaller than the damage normally inflicted.

Sleight of Mind [Eldritch]
Charms have a way of slipping off you.
Benefit: You gain a +3 bonus on all Will saving throws against enchantment spells and effects.

Snake Charm [Eldritch]
Your hypnotic stare keeps others entranced.
Prerequisites: Intimidate 8 ranks, Cha 17.
Benefit: Your eyes are a form of gaze attack that hold the attention of one creature that meets your stare. If you are within 10 feet of a target creature that faces you, you may attempt to lock it in a staredown as a full-round action. Th target must make a Will save (DC 10 + half your Intimidate ranks + your Charisma modifier). If the save fails, the creature continues to stare, unable to break away, and is locked into a nonmagical staredown with you for the round. If the save succeeds the creature can look away and you may not attempt another snake charm on it until the next day.
While you are locked in a staredown neither you nor the creature can attack. Both of you take a −4 penalty to Armor Class. You may not cast spells that require material components or move more than 10 feet away from the target creature. The target is entitled to another Will save next round to break the staredown, but you may break it at any time. If you do so, the creature immediately becomes free to act.

Snap [Epic]
The creature can grab and swallow a foe with one swift motion.
Prerequisites: Improved grab (with bite) special attack, swallow whole special attack.
Benefit: When the creature hits an opponent small enough to be swallowed whole with its bite attack, it deals normal damage and attempts to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If the creature succeeds, it immediately swallows the opponent whole. Regardless of the grapple check's success or failure, the creature can use its remaining attacks against that or other opponents.
Normal: A creature must begin its turn with an opponent held in its mouth, then succeed on a second grapple check in order to swallow the opponent whole.

Snatch [General]
Prerequisite: Size Huge or larger.
Benefit: The creature can choose to start a grapple when it hits with a claw or bite attack, as though it had the improved grab special attack. If the creature gets a hold on a creature three or more sizes smaller, it squeezes each round for automatic bite or claw damage. A snatched opponent held in the creature's mouth is not allowed a Reflex save against the creature's breath weapon, if it has one.
The creature can drop a creature it has snatched as a free action or use a standard action to fling it aside. A flung creature travels 1d6 x 10 feet, and takes 1d6 points of damage per 10 feet traveled. If the creature flings a snatched opponent while flying, the opponent takes this amount or falling damage, whichever is greater.

Snatch Arrows [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 15, Deflect Arrows, Guarded Unarmed Strike.
Benefit: When using the Deflect Arrows feat you may catch the weapon instead of just deflecting it. Thrown weapons can immediately be thrown back at the original attacker (even though it isn't your turn) or kept for later use.
You must have at least one hand free (holding nothing) to use this feat.

Sneak Attack of Opportunity [Epic]
Prerequisites: Sneak attack +8d6, opportunist class feature.
Benefit: Any attack of opportunity you make is considered a sneak attack.

Sonic Substitution [Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Any other metamagic feat, Knowledge (magic) 5 ranks.
Benefit: When employing a spell with the acid, cold, electricity, or fire descriptor, you can modify the spell to use sonic instead. The altered spell uses a spell slot two levels higher than the spell's normal level.
The altered spell works normally in all respects except the type of damage dealt.

Sovereign of the Animal Kingdom [Divine][Epic]
Prerequisites: Animal domain, Knowledge (religion) 24 ranks, Knowledge (nature) 24 ranks, ability to cast shapechange.
Benefit: Rebuke or command Animal and Magical Beast creatures as an evil cleric rebukes or commands undead. Use this ability a total number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier. This granted power is a supernatural ability.

Sovereign of the Elements [Divine][Epic]
Prerequisite: Air domain, Earth domain, Fire domain, or Water domain.
Benefit: A number of times per day equal to your Cha modifier, you can perform a greater turning or rebuking with your granted ability turning or rebuking. The greater turning or rebuking is like a normal turning or rebuking except that the creatures that would be turned or rebuked are destroyed or commanded instead.

Sovereign of the Green [Divine][Epic]
Prerequisite: Plant domain.
Benefit: A number of times per day equal to your Cha modifier, you can perform a greater turning or rebuking against plant creatures in place of a regular turning or rebuke attempt. The greater turning or rebuking is like a normal turning or rebuking except that the plant creatures that would be turned or rebuked are destroyed or commanded instead.

Sovereign of War [General]
Prerequisites: War domain, base attack +5.
Benefit: Your cleric levels stack with fighter levels for the purposes of meeting feat prerequisites.

Spectral Strike [Epic]
Prerequisites: Wis 19, ability to turn or rebuke undead.
Benefit: Your attacks deal damage normally against incorporeal creatures.
Normal: Without this feat, even attacks that can damage an incorporeal creature have a 50% chance to deal no damage.

Spell Focus [General]
Choose a school of magic.
Benefit: Add +1 to the Difficulty Class for all saving throws against spells from the school of magic you select.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new school of magic.

Spell Knowledge [Epic]
Prerequisite: Ability to cast spells of the maximum normal spell level of an arcane spellcasting class.
Benefit: You learn two new arcane spells of any level up to the maximum level you can cast, or one spell at each lower level.. This feat does not grant any additional spell slots.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times.

Spell Mastery [General]
Prerequisite: Wizard level 1st.
Benefit: Each time you take this feat, choose a number of spells equal to your Intelligence modifier that you already know. From that point on, you can prepare these spells without referring to a spellbook.
Normal: Without this feat, you must use a spellbook to prepare all your spells, except read magic.

Spell Opportunity [Epic]
Prerequisites: Combat Casting, Combat Reflexes, Quicken Spell, Spellcraft 25 ranks.
Benefit: Whenever you are allowed an attack of opportunity, you may cast (and attack with) a touch spell as your attack of opportunity. This incurs attacks of opportunity just as if you had cast the spell normally.
Normal: Without this feat, you can only make a melee attack as an attack of opportunity.

Spell Penetration [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on caster level checks (1d20 + caster level) made to overcome a creature's spell resistance.

Spell Stowaway [Epic]
Prerequisites: Spellcraft 24 ranks, caster level 12th.
Benefit: Choose a spell-like ability you know, or a spell you can cast. You are attuned to the magic you choose. If another spellcaster within 300 feet uses this magic, you also immediately gain the magic's effect as if it had been used on you by the same caster. You must have direct line of effect to the spellcaster in order to gain the benefit of the attuned magic (though you do not have to know the spellcaster is present, and you can be flat-footed). The magic's duration, effect, and other specifics are determined by its original caster's level.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different spell or spell-like ability.

Spellcasting Harrier [Epic]
Prerequisite: Combat Reflexes.
Benefit: Any spellcaster you threaten in melee takes a penalty on Concentration checks made to cast defensively equal to 1/2 your character level. You get a +4 bonus on attacks of opportunity so provoked.

Split Ray [Metamagic]
You can affect two targets with a single ray.
Prerequisite: Any other metamagic feat.
Benefit: You can split rays you cast. The split ray affects any two targets that are both within the spell's range and within 30 feet of each other. If the ray deals damage, each target takes as much damage as a single target would take.
Using this feat increases the spell's level by 2.

Spontaneous Domain Access [Epic]
Prerequisites: Wis 25, Spellcraft 30 ranks, ability to cast 9th-level divine spells.
Benefit: Select a domain you have access to. You may spontaneously convert any prepared cleric spell (except a domain spell) into a domain spell of the same level in the selected domain, just as a cleric channels energy to convert spells into cure or inflict spells.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different domain.

Spontaneous Spell [Epic]
Prerequisites: Spellcraft 25 ranks, ability to cast the maximum normal spell level of at least one spell-casting class.
Benefit: Select a spell you can cast. You may spontaneously convert any prepared spell of the selected spell's level into the selected spell, just as a cleric channels energy to convert spells into cure spells.
Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different spell.

Spring Attack [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 13, Dodge, Mobility, base attack +4.
Benefit: When using the attack action with a melee weapon, you can move both before and after the attack, provided that your total distance moved is not greater than your speed. Moving in this way does not provoke an attack of opportunity from the defender you attack, though it might provoke attacks of opportunity from other creatures, if appropriate. You can't use this feat if you are wearing heavy armor.
You must move at least 5 feet both before and after you make your attack in order to utilize the benefits of Spring Attack.

Sprint [General]
You can run with a great burst of speed.
Prerequisite: Run.
Benefit: You gain a 10 foot bonus to your land speed.

Stealthy [General]
Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Hide checks and Move Silently checks.

Still Spell [Metamagic]

Spells without somatic components are not affected. A stilled spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Storm of Throws [Epic]
Prerequisites: Dex 23, Point Blank Shot, Quick Draw, Rapid Shot.
Benefit: As a full-round action, you may throw a light weapon at your full attack bonus at each opponent within 30 feet. Weapons thrown need not be the same type.

Strike of Perfect Clarity [Battlemind]
While battle rages around you, you achieve a state of amazing lucidity. In this rarefied mental state, you see the ebb and flow of a single foe's movements. When the slightest gap appears in his defenses, such as when he commits an attack against you, you strike to kill.
Prerequisites: Int 13, Combat Expertise, Superior Expertise, base attack +12.
Benefit: You can assume a defensive, watchful stance as a standard action. If the foe you are watching attacks you before your next action, you can make an attack of opportunity against him before he resolves his strike. If you hit, you deal triple damage.

Stunning Fist [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 13, Wis 13, Guarded Unarmed Strike, base attack +8.
Benefit: You must declare that you are using this feat before you make your attack roll (thus, a failed attack roll ruins the attempt). Stunning Fist forces a foe damaged by your unarmed attack to make a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Wis modifier), in addition to dealing damage normally. A defender who fails this saving throw is stunned for 1 round (until just before your next action). A stunned character can't act, loses any Dexterity bonus to AC, and takes a −2 penalty to AC. You may attempt a stunning attack once per day for every four levels you have attained (but see Special), and no more than once per round. Constructs, oozes, plants, undead, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to critical hits cannot be stunned.

Subdual Substitution [Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Any other metamagic feat, Knowledge (magic) 5 ranks.
Benefit: When employing a spell with the acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic designator, you can modify the spell to deal subdual damage instead of the indicated type of energy damage. The altered spell uses a spell slot of the spell's normal level.
The altered spell works normally in all respects except the type of damage dealt.

Subliminal Spellcasting [Eldritch]
You cast a spell so subtly as to make it extremely difficult to detect that it even happened.
Prerequisites: Cha 11, caster level 3rd, Bluff 1 rank.
Benefit: You can cast any spell so that the casting has no visible effects. Further, the verbal and somatic components (if any) remain so subtle that unless someone makes a Spellcraft check (DC 10 + your Bluff skill check), they cannot tell you are casting a spell and not simply moving and talking normally. The casting time for the spell is 10 times the normal casting time.
Unlike with a normal spell, even if a character must make a saving throw to resist the spell's effects, he is not aware that he is making the save. Succeed or fail, the target does not know the spell has been cast on him. Likewise, you do not know if the spell succeeds or fails.

Summon Ensorcelled Creatures [Metamagic]
Prerequisites: Spell Focus (Conjuration), Spellcraft 10 ranks.
Benefit: You can link one spell in your repertoire of 3rd level or less with any summon monster or summon nature's ally spell you have prepared, causing the linked spell to be automatically cast on the summoned creature when it appears. This is not an action.

Summon Spectral Shield Bearer [Battlemind]
You call into being a squat, powerfully muscled being made of force. It carries a heavy shield also made of force and uses it to protect you.
Prerequisites: Mystic Might, base attack +5.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 5, rounded down, +1.
Duration: A number of rounds equal to your base attack.
Benefit: Your spectral shield bearer blocks attacks from a single opponent of your choice. Against that foe, you get a +2 bonus to Armor Class against melee attacks and a +4 bonus to Armor Class against ranged attacks. You can switch the shield bearer's target as a free action.
The shield bearer has AC 20, hit points equal to twice your base attack, and ability scores and saving throw bonuses equal to your own. It always remains with you, in the space you occupy, regardless of your speed or movement mode. Only force effects can damage the spectral shield bearer. It appears as a shimmering humanoid shape. The shield bearer takes no actions other than to protect you.

Summon Spectral Squire [Battlemind]
You create a vaguely humanoid body of force that remains close to you and can hold your weapons, shields, and other equipment in battle.
Prerequisites: Mystic Might, Quick Draw, base attack +1.
Uses/Day: Your base attack divided by 4, rounded down, +1.
Duration: A number of minutes equal to your base attack.
Benefit: The spectral squire appears as soon as you call it and provides a number of benefits. It remains in your space but never hinders your attacks, nor does it aid your efforts. However, if you drop and weapons, shields, or similar items, you can command the squire (with a free action) to carry such items for you. You can use your Quick Draw feat as a free action to ready any item, including a shield, that the squire carries. You can use up to four such free actions per round.
A spectral squire has AC 10, hit points equal to your base attack, and ability scores and save bonuses equal to your own. It always remains with you in the space you occupy, regardless of your speed or movement mode. It appears as a shimmering humanoid-shaped being of pure energy. The spectral squire is an incorporeal creature for the purpose of determining whether and how an attack or effect can damage it. Anyone other than you can attempt a Strength check (DC 20) to take an item from it. It cannot take actions beyond those described in this feat.

Superior Expertise [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Int 13, Combat Expertise, base attack +6.
Benefit: When you use the Combat Expertise feat to improve your Armor Class, the number you subtract from your attack and add to your AC can be any number that does not exceed your base attack.
This feat eliminates the +5 maximum for the Combat Expertise feat.

Superior Initiative [Epic]
Prerequisite: Improved Initiative.
Benefit: You get a +8 bonus on initiative checks. This bonus overlaps (does not stack with) the bonus from Improved Initiative.

Suppressible Spell [Metamagic]
You may temporarily dismiss the effects of your spells, restoring them as needed at a later point.
Benefit: You may make any spell that is dismissible by the caster into a suppressible spell. When you would dismiss the spell, you may choose to have the spell be suppressed instead; while all effects of a suppressed spell cease as if it had been dismissed, the spell's duration continues to be counted. While suppressed, the spell is not ended by any action you or the target creature takes that would normally do so. For example, a character under the effects of a suppressed invisibility spell can attack without ending the spell. At any time before the spell's duration fully expires, you may reinstate the spell. Doing so requires the same type of action as casting the spell in the first place, including any verbal or somatic components needed.
You must be within the spell's range from the area, object, or creature that was the original target of the spell in order to suppress or reinstate the spell effect. If the spell affected multiple creatures or objects, you may selectively suppress or reinstate the spell's effects on each of the targets currently within range. There is no limit to the number of times a spell may be suppressed or reinstated during the spell's duration, even if the duration has been made permanent with the permanency spell.
A suppressible spell uses a spell slot of the same level as the spell's actual level.
Normal: Dismissing a spell requires a standard action and ends the spell's effects.

You may make an attack opposed by the result of your opponent's attack, disarm attempt, touch attack made to trip, or touch attack made to initiate a grapple. If your attack result is greater than your foe's result, your foe misses. In essence, your attack result becomes the Armor Class that your foe's attack must hit.
You must threaten the target of this ability, but you can choose to ruin an attack made against you or another character. You do not damage your opponent with this maneuver. Instead, you move to block his strike or otherwise foil his attack.

While discorporated, the creature effectively ceases to exist; it cannot act in any way or sense its surroundings.

When the chosen duration ends, the creature reappears in the space where it discorporated.

Tenacious Magic [Epic]
Prerequisite: Spellcraft 15 ranks.
Benefit: Choose one spell you know or spell-like ability you possess.

Track [General]
Benefit: To find tracks or to follow them for 1 mile requires a successful Survival check. You must make another Survival check every time the tracks become difficult to follow.
You move at half your normal speed (or at your normal speed with a −5 penalty on the check, or at up to twice your normal speed with a −20 penalty on the check). The DC depends on the surface and the prevailing conditions, as given on the table below:

SurfaceSurvival DCSurfaceSurvival DC
Very soft ground5Firm ground15
Soft ground10Hard ground20

Very Soft Ground: Any surface (fresh snow, thick dust, wet mud) that holds deep, clear impressions of footprints.
Soft Ground: Any surface soft enough to yield to pressure, but firmer than wet mud or fresh snow, in which a creature leaves frequent but shallow footprints.
Firm Ground: Most normal outdoor surfaces (such as lawns, fields, woods, and the like) or exceptionally soft or dirty indoor surfaces (thick rugs and very dirty or dusty floors). The creature might leave some traces (broken branches or tufts of hair), but it leaves only occasional or partial footprints.
Hard Ground: Any surface that doesn't hold footprints at all, such as bare rock or an indoor floor. Most streambeds fall into this category, since any footprints left behind are obscured or washed away. The creature leaves only traces (scuff marks or displaced pebbles).
Several modifiers may apply to the Survival check, as given on the table below.

1 For a group of mixed sizes, apply only the modifier for the largest size category.
2 Apply only the largest modifier from this category.

If you fail a Survival check, you can retry after 1 hour (outdoors) or 10 minutes (indoors) of searching.
Normal: Without this feat, you can use the Survival skill to find tracks, but you can follow them only if the DC for the task is 10 or lower. Alternatively, you can use the Search skill to find a footprint or similar sign of a creature's passage using the DCs given above, but you can't use Search to follow tracks, even if someone else has already found them.
Special: A ranger automatically has Track as a bonus feat. He need not select it.
This feat does not allow you to find or follow the tracks made by a subject of a pass without trace spell.

Trample [Fighter]

Special: You can gain this feat up to three times, stacking as described in the second paragraph.

Two-Weapon Defense [Fighter]
Prerequisites: Dex 15, Two-Weapon Fighting.
Benefit: When wielding a double weapon or two weapons (not including natural weapons or unarmed strikes), you gain a +2 shield bonus to your AC.
When you are fighting defensively or using the total defense action, this shield bonus increases to +3.

Two-Weapon Fighting [Fighter]
Benefit: Your penalties on attack rolls for fighting with two weapons are reduced by 2.
Normal: If you wield a second weapon in your off hand, you can get one extra attack per round with that weapon. When fighting in this way you suffer a −6 penalty with your regular attack or attacks with your primary hand and a −10 penalty to the attack with your off hand. If your off-hand weapon is light the penalties are reduced by 2 each. (An unarmed strike is always considered light.)
Special: A 2nd-level ranger who has chosen the two-weapon combat style is treated as having Two-Weapon Fighting, even if he does not have the prerequisite for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

Disabling conditions do not hold you back.
Benefit: Your mental strength is enough to overcome some otherwise disabling conditions. You can cast an unconditional spell when you are dazed, confused, nauseated, shaken, or stunned.

Prerequisite: Base attack +1.
