Talk:Spellcasting (3.5e Feat Type)

So uh, I was wondering if it was possible for these feats to possibly scale off of spell-like abilities, namely the sphere system. If so, how would that work? For instance, "Summon the Legion" scales off of the highest level conjuration(summoning) or (calling) spell the user has access to. If a sphere user were to take the Diplomacy sphere, at 11th level they gain access to Lesser Planar Binding, which is a 4th level cleric spell but is technically a spell-like ability rather than a spell itself. Should this be allowed, treated as a 4th level spell for the purposes) Perhaps since it's gained at 11th level, when most casters begin acquiring 6th level spells, should it be counted as a 6th level spell? Spheres having a tendency to give spell-likes at strange levels(like Fireballs at 1st) it should be distinguished whether the proper spell level or the equivalent "when-you get it" spell level should be counted for use with Spellcasting feats. ~Swordgeo

I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to allow these to trigger off of spheres or not, but given the variability in spell level assignment already seen I'd probably go with your second formulation: A spell granted by a sphere counts as having a spell level equal to half it's acquisition level (rounded up). Else you invite reverse dumpster diving to see what the highest level you could acquire the spell at is, since that would unlock the most feat benefits... and that's crap. - Tarkisflux Talk 05:18, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Bonus wizard feats[edit]

Can a wizard take a spellcasting feat as one of their bonus feats?
