Benefit: Choose two Knowledge or Lore skills in any combination (two Knowledge skills, a Knowledge skill and a Lore skill, and so on). You get a +2 bonus on all skill checks with these skills. If you have 5 or more ranks in one of these skills, you gain the rank 5 skill unlock for that skill, but only for the chosen category of that skill, such as Knowledge (Arcana). As you gain more ranks in these skills, you gain additional abilities. If you have 10 or more ranks in one of these skills, you gain the appropriate abilities immediately, and the bonus to skill checks with that skill increases to +4.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to two new skills.

Skill Unlocks

Knowledge or Lore

With sufficient ranks in Knowledge or Lore, you earn the following.

5 Ranks: When you successfully identify a creature, you gain one additional piece of information for every 5 ranks you possess in that Knowledge or Lore skill.

10 Ranks: When you successfully identify a creature, you gain a +1 competence bonus on attack rolls, opposed ability checks, skill checks, and caster level checks against creatures of that kind (e.g., glabrezu demons, but not other demons or evil outsiders) for 1 minute. This bonus increases by 1 for every 5 ranks beyond 10 you possess in that Knowledge or Lore skill.

15 Ranks: When you fail a Knowledge or Lore check, you can reroll the check at a –10 penalty. The competence bonus above also applies to saving throws against exceptional, spell-like, or supernatural abilities used by creatures you identify.

20 Ranks: Whenever you attempt a Knowledge or Lore check, you can roll twice and take the better result.
