oh, lordy, here we go again
 
 
as of now, i plan to at a minimum add 'unlocks' links to all feats that need it. this is a big quality of life improvement that makes 'up and down' investigation of feat trees much more user friendly. this is a lot of work, and I am specifically NOT going to try to put in any 'stacks with' links.  let GM's and players work that out for themselves. :)
 
 
I'll run the ReplaceText script to add a new field to the feats template.  That should at least make it a little easier for you to populate this. You probably already know that the 'What Links Here' page is really useful to find upward unlocks.
 
 
i also plan to look at 'tiering out' all the feats. this could be very messy, and i'm not convinced is required. an alternative is to remove all feat requirements except level 1 and required prerequisites. this would mean that EVERY feat is available at level 1, unless it has a requirement of one or more other feats. this could also be problematic, since the Epic feats are designed to be stronger.
 
 
Don't make everything level 1. That's a terrible plan. I'd rather do nothing than that.  But I'd much rather round all level-based prerequisites to the nearest 1st level of a given tier (1, 6, 11, 16, etc.).
 
 
what's probably gonna happen is a bulk 'requires Tier 1' (level 1), 'requires tier 3' (level 11), 'requires tier 5' (level 21), and 'requires tier 7' (level 31) combined with feat pre-reqs. this is similar to but simpler than what exists now. K.I.S.S.  :)
 
 
Any level requirement should be rounded to the nearest 1st level of the tier (e.g. [[Absolute Spell (Feat)]] currently requires level 29. I would bump that to level 31).  I would NOT put the 'requires tier 3' in the prerequisites, just put "Level 21" or "Caster Level 21" or "Alchemist 21". It's less wordy, and clear enough.  Remember that all these prereqs get transcluded to the master feats page, so the more terse they are, the better that table will look.
 
 
i'm also planning to prune some feats here and there, so hang onto your kidneys.
 
 
Oh, please do!
 
 
thoughts?
 
  
 
I would add a category to every feat describing what tier it is relevant to.  If you see any red-linked tier-based categories, they're wrong, and should be replaced with one of the ones below, based on the feat's pre-reqs:

I would add a category to every feat describing what tier it is relevant to. If you see any red-linked tier-based categories, they're wrong, and should be replaced with one of the ones below, based on the feat's pre-reqs:

  • [[Category:Courageous Tier (1-5)]]
  • [[Category:Intrepid Tier (6-10)]]
  • [[Category:Heroic Tier (11-15)]]
  • [[Category:Undaunted Tier (16-20)]]
  • [[Category:Valorous Tier (21-25)]]
  • [[Category:Mythic Tier (26-30)]]
  • [[Category:Legendary Tier (31-35)]]

By adding the category, we can create a table that just includes the feats of a particular tier (or the tier and any earlier tiers). This means new characters won't have to look at everything, just the feats that are available at Courageous. Huge quality of life improvement.
