Undead shape

Type of feat: general (available every three level-ups) (epic)
Prerequisite: epic shifter

Specifics: The character with this ability can transform into a selection of powerful undead creatures three times per day: risen lord, vampire, and spectre.

Use: selected. After choosing this ability, the character must select an undead type to change into.


  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • This form of shapeshifting cannot be dispelled.
  • This feat does not actually require one to be an epic shifter. It can be taken starting on shifter level 10 (when the shifter gets greater wildshape IV).
  • Unlike the other epic shifter feats, undead shape does not require a minimum wisdom score.
