[Combat] Feats[edit]

Combat feats are a type of scaling feat that grants increasing bonuses based on your Base Attack Bonus. They were created to replace feat chains entirely, in order to grant feat abilities more on par with spellcasting abilities regardless of acquisition level and make the acquisition of additional thematic ability sets possible at higher levels. As a result they have no prerequisites and provide a significant benefit at whatever level they are taken.

They were originally written up in Races of War, part of the Tome series of Homebrew.
