Favorite Feat
« on: September 22, 2011, 02:25:16 PM »
Okay! Favorite feat game, just like the others, but with feats. To start, everyone can list five feats and we'll gather a list. Once we have the submissions, we'll do a preliminary round of voting to prune it down to 50, and start as normal from there.

I'll get the ball rolling:

Power Attack
Quicken Spell
Knowledge Devotion
Law Devotion
Natural Spell




Damn. It's hard to keep it to five!

Totally true.  Historians believe that most past civilizations would have endured for centuries longer if they had successfully determined Batman's alignment.
Quote from: Grand Theft Otto
Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"
Quote from: CryoSilver
I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.

Is Chicken-Infested a feat? No, that isn't one of my favorite feats, if it is. I just thought it was a flaw or trait...

My favorite 5:
Nymph's Kiss*****
Divine Metamagic: Persist ****(I think the feat is pretty dumb for most other uses)
Earth Sense***This feat is insanely flavorful
Collegiate Wizard**for the low-magic, can't-buy-scrolls campaign
Diehard* I really like this feat, if only Endurance weren't a prereq

Hope I didn't miss anything I thought was cool...

I don't know if the designers meant you to take Skill Focus for every feat.
Sounds a little OP.

The monk is clearly the best class, no need to optimize here. What you are doing is overkill.

It's like people who have no idea what a turn signal is. They ruin it for everyone else.
When another driver brandishes a holy symbol and begins glowing with divine light, seek cover or get spattered with zombie brains. I do not see what is so complicated about this.

It's a flaw. A commoner-only flaw.

Nerfed so hard it wrapped around and became awesome.
The mind transcends the body.
It's also a little cold because of that.
Please get it a blanket.

I wish I could read your mind,
I can barely read mine.

"Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. At 2:15, it begins rolling up characters."

[spoiler]
"Just what do you think the moon up in the sky is? Everyone sees that big, round shiny thing and thinks there must be something round up there, right? That's just silly. The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

the most effective optimization is the one you can actually get away with.  :smirk

Quote from: Vinom
(A group of nerds are called a murder because like crows we are anti-social, like shiny things, and often squack at each other over nothing for hours)

I often have to remind people not to underrate divination.  The ability to effectively metagame without actually metagaming beats the ability to set things on fire more times than not.

It looks like we have 44 so far. I suppose we should get at least six more.

How about if no one else enters any ideas 24 hours from now, we can each put one more in? That should get us to about 50 or so.

It looks like we're still down one or two. I know Veekie had at least one repeat. If everyone else lists one more feat, we should have more than 50 to start.
