Feats are special abilities of each character, further setting them apart from comparable builds. Feats often have a number of prerequisites that must be met in order to select them during level ups. All characters receive a free feat every odd character level. How often a character receives Feats beyond that depends on their class.

Ability score prerequisites for a feat can be met by using equipment. E.g. a character with 8 DEX can learn Dodge (requires 13 DEX) if during his level-up he has a Belt of Incredible Dexterity +6 equipped on him. But the feat will only have its effect as long as the respective ability score is still increased.

Types of Feats[ | ]

  • General feats have no special rules beyond those that apply to all feats.
  • Combat feats can be selected as fighters’ bonus feats, but other characters can select them as well.
  • Maneuver feats grant Combat Maneuver Abilities that the player can choose to use actively in fights.
  • Critical feats modify the effects of critical hits.
  • Metamagic feats allow spellcasters to grant their spells new powers and effects. Spells modified by such feats generally take up a higher-level spell slot than normal.
  • Teamwork feats provide benefits to characters in specific circumstances. Usually, two or more characters must have the same teamwork feat to use it.
