Due to a recent dragon magazine, the Cleric/Templar has a semi-questionable issue. In Dragon Magazine 400, there is an article for Battle Cleric's (Those with DDI can check here: Battle Cleric Options), there is an option where instead of taking the Healer's Lore option, you can take the Battle Cleric's Lore option.

The questionable point though is with Divine Power's Divine Healer multiclass Cleric feat that says in the second sentence:

You gain the cleric’s Healer’s Lore class feature.

Since the feat says you get that class feature despite the fact its attached to a multiclass feat, does this mean that a person can trade the Healer's Lore class feature for the Battle Cleric's Lore class feature?

No, you can't get it. If a feat says that you get class feature X, then you can't trade that class feature for another one even if the original class could. WOTC would have to either introduce another multiclass feat to allow you to get Battle Cleric's Lore, or errata the existing feat to include the option.

That is what I thought. I'll take this as the correct answer. – zapoqx Aug 9 '11 at 1:13
