Notes

  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • This is an epic selectable class feat for bards. A bard can't achieve the 9th level spell requirement on its own, so 17 levels of cleric, druid, wizard or 18 levels of sorcerer would be needed.
  • By removing the somatic component from spells, these feats also eliminate the risk of arcane spell failure associated with wearing armor. Several arcane spellcaster builds acquire automatic still spell III along with one level in a warrior class that provides heavy armor proficiency and shield proficiency. This combination allows the spellcaster to gain up to 11 AC (8 from armor and 3 from a shield), possibly plus a shield bonus, for no cost other than one caster level.
