Word of Wizards - Excerpts: Feats
Today's excerpt is an unremarkable list of heroic feats. There are altogether 31 feats, 15 of them are racial feats for the new races that will be in the PHB II.
From the vague descriptions, I could pick a few that were interesting to me.
Benefit: Gain combat advantage with ranged and area attacks against flanked enemies.
Goliath Greatweapon Prowess
Benefit: Gain proficiency, +2 damage with two-handed melee weapons.
Benefit: Change ability used for melee basic weapon attacks.
Benefit: Second wind or total defense grants saving throw
Benefit: +1 to attacks with weapon group.
Looking at these and the rest so far, I don't feel a real power creep yet and they seem fairly alright but keep an eye on Weapon Expertise being potentially min/maxed.
