I recommend fanged ring and necklace of natural attacks. The fanged ring gives Improved Unarmed Strike, Improved Natural Attack (unarmed strike), and bonus Con damage on a critical hit. You don’t need Improved Unarmed Strike, but Improved Natural Attack is pretty nice, as is the Con damage. Dragon Magic—10,000 gp The necklace of natural attacks can get ...

There're at least two ways... The following let the barbarian actually rage using his own kind of rage more often than normal. "Whirling frenzy is otherwise identical to the standard barbarian rage" (UA 66), so these should work with that, too. The 2nd-level Drd spell blood frenzy [trans] (Spell Compendium 33) causes 1 touched creature to rage as if it ...

There aren't many options left. Class levels and feats aside; other than scrolls with the Rage spell, magic items that would duplicate rage would be pretty expensive. A domain draught (Magic Item Compendium) of the Passion Domain would give you a rage once per day for a number of rounds equal to cleric level. You don't have a cleric level, so it would be ...

The special ability soothing voice is a neat but limited trick The 1st-level half-elf bard racial substitution level replaces countersong with soothing voice (Races of Destiny 157), which is like the bardic song fascinate but different, so below I've inserted soothing voice's differences into the description of the typical bard's fascinate special ability: ...

They would be able to move though the space; they simply cannot enter into a space within that 30 feet from outside that range. Otherwise, by that logic any undead within 5 feet would simply be unable to move, as moving away from you requires entering a space 10 feet away from you, which is a space within 30 feet of you. Turn undead is not designed to be ...

A spell with the listed descriptors would be cast at +2 Caster level. Storm Spell Power reads: You are truly skilled in the use of spells that wield the power of the stormy seas. Any spell you cast that has the air, electricity, sonic, or water descriptor is cast at +2 caster level. The text of the ability doesn't state that there is a cumulative bonus ...

'or' As long as it has any of those keywords, it gains +2 caster level. It does not gain it more than once, due to how the sentence is constructed, and how sentences work in english, and the ubiquity of that phrasing and it's meaning in the rest of the ruleset. Also, the strength of that feat is that it forces two saves, one against stun, and one against ...

Can intelligent creatures with no language learn languages? For example, could the ice toad just sink a couple of skill points into the cross-class skill Speak Language and pick up Common? Could the ice toad then speak Common? Not entirely. An Ice toad that gains a skill rank can take a rank in Linguistics to Understand Common, but if they lack the ...

You do not gain a bonus action The key here is that action surge does not state states "you gain" and then lists actions you gain. Rather, it states "you can take", then lists the actions you can take, which include those you could already take without action surge. With this in mind, there are two readings of the sentence in question which are ...

No it doesn't give you another bonus action. The optional part is that if you haven't used your bonus action that turn you can still use it after the action surge so it could be: Action -> Bonus Action -> -AS- Action Action -> -AS- Action -> Bonus Action Source To quote the rules: You can take only one bonus action on your turn, so you must choose ...

Action surge allows you to take 1 additional action. This is in addition to your existing action and bonus action. Action surge does not grant you an additional bonus action. The rules note that the bonus action is optional because you do not have to use your bonus action on the same turn that you use an action surge, therefore, it is optional. It does not ...

Mounted Archery is a feat that is very situational. When you play a Steppe Nomad campaign it's probably the greatest thing since sliced bread, for all other campaigns it's basically a dead slot. Your two replacements are feats that work reliably on every single attack (or damage) roll. On average, over all possible campaign types, the replacements feats ...

This post contains all alternative class features published by WotC. Here are the mount replacements listed there, along with sources: Charging Smite (PHB 2, p 53): No special mount, if you smite on a charge attack, gain 2 extra damage per paladin level. Divine Spirit (Dungeonscape, p 11): No special mount. Gain a spirit that grants special abilities to ...

An Imperfect Solution: So, it's not as tidy as the Teamster's implementation, but I think I've found a somewhat quick and dirty solution to this problem. I found a 7th level feat called Flagellant: Prerequisite(s): Endurance, character level 7th, worshiper of Zon-Kuthon. Benefit(s): You gain a +4 bonus on saving throws against pain effects. ...

This nuance in the Rules as Written appears to have been lost in translation: the English text correctly states that Rangers with the two-weapon fighting style should be treated as having the Two-Weapon Fighting feat, full stop. (KRyan is correct in that Two-Weapon Defense isn't really worth a feat, by the way -- +1 AC isn't that big, and a shield AC bonus ...

The ranger’s class feature grants Two-Weapon Fighting, and meets that prereq Two-Weapon Defense requires two things: the Two-Weapon Fighting feat, and Dexterity 15. Taking the English translation as authoritative (since the original authors were working in English), the ranger class allows you to get the Two-Weapon Fighting feat as a bonus feat, that is, ...

Yes, he can take the Two Weapon Defense feat. The rule that applies to this is called Specific trumps General. The only difference between the feat for TWF and the Ranger one, is that the Ranger prerequisite is being a Ranger and picking the TWF path. For rogues, fighters, barbarians or anybody else, they have to actually pick up the TWF feat, and meet the ...
