Q: Dear Sage,
If an ultimate magus (Complete Mage) with the ability to cast 9th-level spells as both a wizard and a sorcerer takes the Improved Spell Capacity feat (Epic Level Handbook), does he gain a 10th-level spell slot as a wizard, as a sorcerer, or in both classes?
A: The Improved Spell Capacity feat only applies to a single class. You’d choose to improve either your wizard spellcasting or your sorcerer spellcasting with each selection of the feat.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
