# Arcane Bonds and Familiars

Is it possible for a Wizard to gain both an arcane bond and a familiar without multiclassing?

I have not found a way to do it, but I'm keen to find out if it is possible.

However, there is a dnd 3.5 feat that does this:

Name: Obtain Familiar
Book: Complete Arcane
Short description: Gain a familiar.


Complete Arcane, p. 81

Thanks, but I'm looking for a pathfinder based solution. – Rob Aug 12 '12 at 11:18
Well; despite best efforts to determine something and bribe people; looks like there isn't a way in PF. So awarding this for those people in 3.5, as the other answer hasn't been verified in the referred to book. – Rob Mar 18 '13 at 8:46

It is now Pathfinder legal too. It was adapted in the conversion of Rise of the Runelords. Requires a rank of knowledge arcana and 3rd caster level

Might have a better place as a comment, though... – Nigralbus Dec 18 '12 at 13:05
can you post any references to support your answer? – Colin D Dec 18 '12 at 14:08
I don't see that in the Anniversary edition of Rise of the Runelords at all and can find no reference to it in the pfsrd. – Jacob Proffitt Dec 18 '12 at 16:16
@Rob Found (this)[obsidianportal.com/campaign/rotrllegacy/wikis/obtain-familiar] but no idea how valid it is. – Cristol.GdM Feb 5 '13 at 15:11
@Mikalichov Thanks for the link, but not canon. The answer may well be "no" – Rob Feb 12 '13 at 16:43
