Excerpts: Divine Power Feats

In today's Divine Power preview, we present new feats for the paragon tier, including for each of the divine classes!


Feats provide you with a powerful tool for describing your character’s unique experiences, training, and natural knacks and talents. Two human clerics of Pelor might have similar ability scores and power selections, but if one chooses feats that reinforce healing powers and the other selects feats that give numerous options for Channel Divinity, they’ll play differently at the table.

You must meet a feat’s prerequisites, if any, to take the feat. If you ever lose a prerequisite for a feat, you can’t use the feat until you meet the prerequisite again. A feat that has a class as a prerequisite is available only to members of that class, including characters who have joined the class through a classspecific multiclass feat.
