Feat Changes

  • Precise Shot no longer has Point Blank Shot as a prerequisite. Add the following to Precise Shot: “Additionally, allies no longer count as soft cover.”
  • Point Blank Shot and Far Shot will be a single feat: Expert Shot.
  • The World is Square Feat Tax changes will be used (with the exception of Precise Shot, which will use the above rules.)
  • Toughness and Endurance will be a single feat: Toughness.
  • Fleet, Nimble Moves, and Run will be a single feat: Fleet. Additionally, Fleet no longer has a restriction based on armor or encumbrance. Each additional time a character takes Fleet, they are able to ignore an additional five feet of difficult terrain.
  • The feat prerequisites for Whirlwind Attack are Cleave and Great Cleave rather than Dodge and Spring Attack.
  • Replace the line, “and cannot be chosen from lists from which you have already selected a character trait” in Additional Traits to “and allows you to select a non-Campaign trait from a list from which you have already selected a character trait, to a maximum of two traits from any one list.” Add: “Special: You can take this feat more than once.”
  • Rather than a feat, Skill Focus is now an untyped trait that reads:
    Choose a skill. You gain a +2 trait bonus on all checks involving the chosen skill. If you have 10 or more ranks in that skill, this bonus increases to +4.
    Special: You can gain this trait multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the trait, it applies to a new skill.
  • Rather than a feat, Fast Drinker is now an equipment trait with no prerequisites that reads:
    A character with this trait can drink a mundane alcoholic beverage as a swift action.
  • Quick Draw has no restrictions on what you can draw.
  • Blade & Tankard Fighting Technique (Cayden Cailean Divine Fighting Technique): Add the following: “A swashbuckler with a tankard in his off-hand treats that hand as empty for the purposes of feats and class features that rely on the swashbuckler having nothing in their off-hand, and may treat two-weapon fighting with a tankard as though they were not two-weapon fighting for the purpose of feats and class features that rely on the swashbuckler not engaging in two-weapon fighting.”
  • Deific Obedience – Change the Cayden Cailean Sentinel Boons to the following:
    1. Luck of the Drunk (sp) enhance water 3/d, bladed dash 2/d, or beacon of luck 1/d
    2. Breakfast of Champions (sp) Once per day, you can use heroes’ feast as a spell-like ability.
    3. Stumble Through Space (sp) Once per day, you can use Bard’s Escape as a spell-like ability.
  • Crane Wing: The pre-errata text will be used.
