Ife racehate

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


  • 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.
  • Despite the feat's description, Harper scout favored enemies do improve to +2 at Harper scout level 5. For characters that are both ranger and Harper scout, the class being leveled when selecting a favored enemy will be the class whose level is used to calculate the bonus against that race.
  • Though all favored enemy feats can be avoided by ranger and Harper scout (by taking other bonus feats instead), the lack of feasible alternatives in the pre-epic levels strongly direct the player to choosing at least one of these feats.
  • 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.

  • This feat seems to only work when added during levelup, but it does work in other class slots. So, for example, a level 5 monk given a favored enemy gets +2 damage against the favored enemy.
