Talk:Spellweb (3.5e Feat)

I'm not a fan of this feat. It's kinda overpowered, since it gives you THAT many webs per day. Also, just to point out, you don't comment about what the Caster Level is, as that does make a difference. Edit it out so it gives you web 3 times a day instead of a max of 8 and let us know what level the drow is casting the spell at. (Sorc 1st is usually the standard for a spell-like ability.) -- Flession 17:11, 25 May 2007 (MDT)

It is as a 2nd level sorcerer (because that is the minimum for a sorcerer to cast the spell. I have edited it so that you can cast it no more times than a sorcerer of the same level can. Also, web is a very weak spell, and you really need to consider carefully how to use it well (unless you can web hide, but then it is still not as usefull as the hide in plain sight ability, on the account of the fact that hide in plain sight is only limited to shadows, not webs of at least 5ft by 5ft size, which are rare). It does say whare it is cast from: out of thin air. This is because I dont want to turn Drow into spider-man (this is DnD, not Marvel Comics D20). Note that your effective class level has to be 4, which means you haved to wait longer than a sorcerer has to cast the ability, and by then there are better things you could use a feat on.
Marvel Comics D20 does not really exist (thank the dice gods). It is a pun. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 04:36, 27 May 2007 (MDT). Please sign your posts!

First of all, Web is a second level spell, so you need to be a 4th level sorcerer to cast it. Second, the spell is not weak, on the contrary.

Apart from that, you use rather weird game design. D&D 3rd edition does not use ECL or character level as prerequisites for things like feats and prestige classes. Make that Charisma, base attack bonus, caster level or something like that.

Same with uses per day. A feat that grants a 2nd-level spell as a spell-like ability is good enough, so make that 1/day, no more. Most feats out there that grant spell-like abilities grant either first-level spells or have really really tough prerequisites.

Finally, prestige classes have their prerequisites as written in the prestige class description. Designing a feat for the purpose of entering a prestige class is a no-no. --Mkill 07:13, 20 June 2007 (MDT)
