I always get hung up on feats when creating a new character in D&D 3.5. Specifically, this part of the fighter description from the SRD has me really stumped:
At 1st level, a fighter gets a bonus combat-oriented feat in addition to the feat that any 1st-level character gets and the bonus feat granted to a human character...
These bonus feats are in addition to the feat that a character of any class gets from advancing levels. A fighter is not limited to the list of fighter bonus feats when choosing these feats. (source)
If I understand this correctly:
- All 1st-level characters get to choose a feat - and it can be any feat - while a 1st-level fighter gets to choose two
- All 1st-level human characters get to choose a two feats, and 1st-level human fighters get to choose three
Is this right?
