Any chance we would ever see this feat in some form? I beleive it was in Complete Arcane or Complete Adventurer. From the little I have heard about Mod 6 we are getting a watered down version of this feat. This used to be one of my favorite feats in PnP.

Would you mind posting the feat information? I don't own any of the books... (I know, beat me with a chainsaw whilst running backwards down the up escalator through barbed wire! :eek:)

Maybe Mystic could help me out here. But, basically you assign 10% of all xp you earn to an item(weapon,belt,ring.....). Everytime you level you can assign some of your skill points to your item. You then count those skill points towards the relevant skill and get a small bonus besides. Every couple levels you get to pick a special ability for the item. In PnP there are huge penalties for ever losing the item. In DDO it would just have to be bound and you would never want to destroy the item.

It's actually a Variant system from Unearthed Arcana, which means it's in the SRD:

(I can't get that link to load for some reasons, so here's another (http://www.systemreferencedocuments.org/35/sovelior_sage/unearthedItems.html). It's about 3/4 of the way down the page.)
