• (Core) Arcane Armor Training and Arcane Armor Mastery: These feats automatically decrease the Arcane Spell Failure chance for casting in armor; expenditure of a swift action is unneeded and unnecessary. Also, these feats do not have a minimum caster level requirement.
  • (Psionics Unleashed) Brutal Warrior: The prerequisites for this feat are reduced to three levels in Psychic Warrior and Fighter, rather than five levels in each.
  • (Core) Deadly Aim: When used with a crossbow, the trade-off increases from a +2 to damage per -1 penalty to attack rolls, to a +3 to damage per -1 penalty to attack rolls, effectively treating Deadly Aim as Power Attack, bows as weapons wielded with a single hand, and crossbows acting as weapons wielded with both hands.
  • (Core) Far Shot: This feat now acts as the sum of the 3.5 feat (50% increase in the size of the range increment of missile weapons and 100% increase in the size of the range increment of thrown weapons) and the Pathfinder feat (decrease penalty for multiple range increments to a -1 per range increment).
  • (APG) Perfect Strike: This feat now applies to all monk weapons.
  • (Core) Vital Strike: This entire feat chain is now collapsed into a single feat that scales appropriately with BAB.


  • (New) Extra Second Wind: Benefit: You can catch your second wind one additional time per day, but you can still only catch one second wind per encounter. You can take this feat multiple times; each time you take this feat, you can catch a second wind one additional time per day.
  • (Converted and Altered, RoS) Deflective Armor: Prerequisites: Armor Training, Expanded Path, Brutal Warrior. Benefit: While you are psionically focused and wearing armor, the AC bonus from your armor (including any enhancement bonuses) applies against touch attacks as well as regular attacks.
