Pathfinder Feats Handbook

Pathfinder Feats Handbook

Notes for reading this guide

  1. This is NOT a handbook that gives opinions on feats.  The feats are NOT rated in any way, they are simply organized to similar builds/classes/types etc. 

  2. Specificity wins over general.  (E.g. a feat that has both improved unarmed strike and monk level restrictions will be found in the monk section rather than the unarmed strike melee build section.)

  3. For the most part, the handbook goes from specific to general as you go down the guide.  This means that the most general feats (i.e. ones that more builds can take) are located closer to the bottom of the guide.

  4. Archetypes are not considered when assigning class-specific feats to the classes.  (E.g. All feats related to sneak attack will be found under the rogue section, all channel feats will be found under the cleric section etc.)

  5. For overlap of class abilities between classes, the most traditional class to gain an ability will contain the feats for that class ability.  (E.g.  cleric contains the channel feats and paladin does not because cleric is the more traditional class to gain those feats).  There are some exceptions to this rule and certain classes may have overlapping feat sections for certain class abilities.  

  6. For the most part, class abilities that are found in both a parent class and a hybrid class will be found in the parent class.  If you are using a hybrid class, please check the parent class sections for relevant feats to your class abilities.   

  7. I am trying to be as complete as possible but there may be mistakes or mischaracterizations of feats.  If you see a feat that doesn’t belong or there is a missing feat or you have a suggestion for categories please just let me know in a comment on this page.  I will try to update feats asap when notified.  Thanks! 

Key to special entries

non-PFS:  This tag means that the feat is banned in official PFS play.  Some sections have this tag on the section headings (E.g. monster feats or story feats) if every feat contained within is banned in PFS play.  Disclaimer:  These may not be 100% accurate.  Check the PFS official list for the complete listing.
