Type of feat: class
Prerequisite: ranger, Harper scout 1

Specifics: The character gains a +1 bonus to any damage delivered to his favored enemy. He also receives a +1 bonus on listen, spot, and taunt checks against the favored enemy. These bonuses improve by +1 for every 5 levels that the ranger gains, but they do not improve for the Harper.

Use: automatic. The ranger may choose additional favored enemies every 5 levels. A Harper scout only chooses one more at level 5.

class level 1 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40
bonus +1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9

Notes

  • When a favored enemy is gained, the player selects a race to be that favored enemy. There are 24 favored enemy races available; of the 25 standard races, only ooze cannot be selected.
  • Favored enemies are implemented as bonus feats. Thus a favored enemy can be chosen whenever the class in question gets a bonus feat, and any bonus feat (whose prerequisites are met) can be chosen whenever a class is said to choose an additional favored enemy. (However, the non-epic alternatives consist solely of curse song for the Harper scout and greater spell focus for the ranger.)
  • The bonuses are independent of the number of favored enemies. The bonus improves by +1 every fifth level, not for every favored enemy feat. Class levels do not stack for this; the bonus against favored enemies chosen on ranger levels depends on ranger level, while the bonus against favored enemies chosen on Harper levels depends on Harper level.
    • Harper scout bonuses do improve to +2 at Harper scout level 5, despite the feat's description.
    • Non-player characters will use their full hit dice to determine the bonus, rather than a particular class level.
  • In the pen and paper (3.0) version, any creature immune to critical hits is also immune to the damage bonus from this feat. However, NWN does not have this limitation.
