The Monster Manual feats aren't limited to monsters A feat can be taken by any creature that qualifies for the feat based on the feat's type (for example, the most common type of feat is general, but the Player's Handbook also includes the feat types item creation and metamagic) and that meets the feat's prerequisites and that fulfills any conditions ...

If you're looking to boost damage, the best way to do it is by boosting damage. To address your specific choices: Alert will slightly boost your damage by letting you deal damage when you would normally be surprised. Charger is mediocre at best before level 5, (which is one level away!), and just plain sucks afterwards. You have better things to do with ...

So I’m addressing this in two parts. First, the “effect” so to speak, is as though you had cast the same spell yourself This clause covers the spell, so knowledge is not required for this to work. So if you can use Spiritual Counter, it would work. Second, the feat has a requirement for its use, including be able to cast that spell as if it were ...

No, you can't Accused Hex has 2 requirements: Target a creature with a hex that can only affect a target once per day (satisfied) That creature succeeds at its saving throw (not satisfied) As described in its description (and backed up in its details), Accursed Hex is for re-trying failed hostile hexes. Since Fortune doesn't allow a saving throw, it is ...

As the prerequisite is: Three or more natural attacks you can take it with 1 bite and 2 claws.

You have them both. You choose which one you use. In general, things that overlap are always chosen by the owner (and thus you use whichever is best for the owner).

If a Strongheart Halfling would be reincarnated into Human would he gain humans' extra feat? No. From the SRD: 1 extra feat at 1st level. Since the character wouldn't be gaining their first level, they wouldn't get the bonus feat. If 6th level fighter would be reincarnated how his feats would be affected. You refer to the loss of 1 level ...

No, they are not from the same source. Bonuses without a type always stack, unless they are from the same source. The fact that both modifiers base on Intelligence doesn't mean, that the source is the same. There are two sources: class feature Bomb and feat Focused Shot. Of course, as you mentioned Explosive Missile discovery must be made.

Skirmisher explicitly requires an attack action, and Spring Attack cannot be used in conjunction with anything that requires an attack action. An Editor's Note on D20PFSRD says : Can Vital Strike be used with Spring Attack? Can Vital Strike be used on a charge? No. Vital Strike can only be used as part of an attack action, which is a specific ...

That feat and burglar below it are from the June 2016 unearthed arcana. Everything in UA is beta and not usable in AL events.

So far as I'm aware, there are no guidelines published by Wizards of the Coast for a PC to create a special ability, and, while guidelines for PC-created spells and magic items exist, those are only guidelines, the results of using them still subject to DM oversight. (So you know, I also don't know of a way to avoid needing the DM approval for anything a ...

Being grappled gives many penalties but nothing related to flanking and attack modifiers. A grappled creature is restrained by a creature, trap, or effect. Grappled creatures cannot move and take a –4 penalty to Dexterity. A grappled creature takes a –2 penalty on all attack rolls and combat maneuver checks, except those made to grapple or escape a ...

A creature can't benefit from the feat Vital Strike when making an attack of opportunity The Pathfinder Core Rulebook FAQ includes this exchange: Can I use this with Spring Attack, or on a charge? No. Vital Strike can only be used as part of an attack action, which is a specific kind of standard action. Spring Attack is a special kind of full-round ...

You probably want to split the cost of a ring of tactical precision (Ultimate Equipment 175) (11,000 gp; 0 lbs.) or two. Your buddy wears the ring for an hour, picks one of his teamwork feats, and gives the ring to you. While you're wearing the ring, for 1 day you can use that teamwork feat your buddy picked. (He doesn't lose the feat or anything, though.) ...

There are several abilities your ally could take to treat you as having the Teamwork feats. The inquisitor's Solo Tactics class ability, the fighter's Fighter's Tactics advanced weapon training, the cavalier's Tactician ability, and the Holy Tactician archetype paladin's Battlefield Presence class feature all work to give the user the ability to use ...

Certainly the way I would run it is that if a character’s race contributed a bonus feat, and they were reincarnated, they would lose a feat. I would personally not be a stickler on which one, however, since losing one’s first feat might mean losing the use of all of your feats, if they all depended on that first one. That’s no good. But I also wouldn’t ...

TL/DR: It's +6k2. Normally, you can spend a Void Point once a Round to "roll an additional die, keep an additional die". The Way of the Phoenix lets you spend two VP on a single enhancement roll, getting the benefit of "roll an additional die, keep an additional die" twice. Daredevil lets you substitute each "roll an additional die, keep an additional die"...

Note: This answer deliberately covers the rules at their most basic, ignoring the multitude of options and exceptions to focus on the question at hand. For instance, the question doesn't indicate the creature possesses the universal monster ability grab—a discussion of which would easily double this answer's length—, so that's ignored below. Grappling one-...

There are no special rules for one-handed grappling. Grapple [...] Humanoid creatures without two free hands attempting to grapple a foe take a –4 penalty on the combat maneuver roll. Basically, if one of your hands would be carrying something, it would be harder for you to do it. If both of your hands would be occupied, it won't be even possible to ...

Wild Shape I would personally rule that, for the purposes of Swift Avenger, you use your ranger levels instead of your druid levels. After all, ranger is the class that actually grants wild shape, while druid does not. So I would rule that you have the wild shape of a 14th-level druid (from scout 8/ranger 6 and Swift Avenger), and that this would still be ...

No. Attacks of opportunity are not standard actions since they are used during enemy turn, and Vital Strike explicitly requires an attack (so standard) action. This will be the case for any kind of feat or class feature that requires an attack action or a standard action.

A creature possessing the feat Throw Anything can throw only improvised weapons without penalty The benefit of the feat Throw Anything is that a creature possessing it doesn't "suffer any penalties for using an improvised ranged weapon." Its misleading name to the contrary, the creature can neither make attacks without penalty with weapons not designed for ...
