Inspired by this comment, I want to know what other classes/archetypes a player can dip in order to get a metamagic feat as a bonus feat (and if I missed any).

To set the bounds of the list, the list of classes/archetypes should adhere to the following requirements:

  • The class should be what grants the bonus feat, although it doesn't have to do so directly.
    • Invalid: Saying that you can take 2 levels in x class and then take a metamagic feat for the feat you get at y level is not valid for us.
    • Valid: Saying that you can take 2 levels of shaman to get a hex for which you can choose the Secret hex, which grants a metamagic feat, is valid.
  • Two or less levels required in the class/archetype for the bonus feat. (E.g. 5 levels of vanilla wizard is not a dip for us.) Do note the number of levels required for this.
  • The base class and archetypes may all be mentioned. (E.g. Unsworn shaman and shaman both count as answers.)
  • Links should be provided to the relevant material, or the sourcebook if the content is not available on the web.
  • 3pp is allowed, but it should be noted as such.
  • Prestige classes are allowed as a character may incidentally qualify for them on their own. Noting the requirements for the class would be nice, but not necessary.

A starting point for answers has been made as a community wiki post, feel free to add to it or post your own answer.

  • \$\begingroup\$ One potential option here would be to move your starting list of answers into a Community Wiki answer that can be freely edited and expanded upon by anybody \$\endgroup\$ Aug 26, 2021 at 14:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Medix2 true, but I also figured that answerers would like a reward in the form of reputation. I think I will do that though, it's not like they're required to edit it or anything. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Otherwise it would have to be closed because there would be no way to distinguish whether Answer A with 5 options and Answer B with 4 non-overlapping options or Answer C that copy-pasted A and B and added one... (unless that guidance has changed with the use of community wiki answers) \$\endgroup\$ Aug 26, 2021 at 14:54
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Ifusaso Questions answered by lists are currently considered on-topic, and it's fine to have answers with no possible means of distinguishing which is better. We have quite a few cases of this; I've been debating posting a Meta about them (and have a massive list of them) but have decided that just using CW answers works extremely well \$\endgroup\$ Aug 26, 2021 at 19:58
