I use to think Epic feats couldn’t be taken until post 20th level, however in review of a few ‘select’ feats i have been eyeball’n i noticed the prereqs on them don’t restrict me from taking them now. Is there some obscure passage in 3.5 that restricts taking Epic feats before level 20? Because its not in the prereqs.
epic level handbook, page 46 @ bottom of the page :
ACQUIRING EPIC FEATS
Just like regular feats, epic feats are chosen rather than bought with points. Characters gain epic feats in the following ways:
• At 21st level, and every three levels thereafter, the character may select an epic feat in place of a nonepic feat,
• Each character class gains bonus epic feats according to the class description. These feats must be selected from the list of bonus epic feats for that class.
Correct, all epic feats require level 21+ by nature of having the epic tag.
I figured as much, some of the Epic feats just aren’t worth it there are only a couple i’ve found worth taking. I suspect by the time we get to 21st level their utility will be greatly diminished.
