View Full Version : About adding (greater) spell focus: evocation to the artificer bonus feat list

i think GSF and SF: evocation belong to the artificer bonus feat list for several reasons:

- they are the only feats that increase the rune arm performance and rune arm use is the only aspect of the class that can not be improved by any bonus feat.

- artificer DC spells are mostly evocation (deconstruct the only exception afaik).

- it benefits melee artificers for which the bonus feat list is lacking to say the least. more variety of viable builds is always good.

as for balance, this change wouldn't increase the power of artificers relative to other classes since ranged artificers are not feat starved to begin with and can afford taking these feats if they choose to. it would merely close the gap between the ranged and melee variety of artificers.

thoughts?

yes for lesser but NOT greater
wizards spell feat can't get greater spell focus, so why should artificers?
