I am aware that at 5th level, my character starts to exude an aura even if I am not a cleric or paladin, as per the spell Detect Evil.

Does this mean as of 5th level, I count as having having an aura for the purpose of feat prerequisites? For example, the feat Sacred Summons?

No.

Sacred Summons requires that you have the aura class feature, not merely that you have an aura.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Is class feature ever given a proper definition or is the definition only ever implied? (Note that I'm not disputing the answer, but I am wondering if there's an ugly legal argument in its background.) \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Apr 6 '17 at 19:58
  • \$\begingroup\$ @HeyICanChan No idea. Could easily see that going either way. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan Apr 6 '17 at 19:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ @HeyICanChan that sounds like the "spellcasting class feature" question from 3.5 (aka "why can't I boost my Mystic Thaumaturge casting?"). \$\endgroup\$ – fectin - free Monica Apr 6 '17 at 20:08
