Practiced Bard (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Practiced Bard [General]
Your bardic abilities suffer less from multiclassing
Prerequisite: Perform 4 ranks
Benefit: Your Bard level for determining your bardic music and bardic knowledge abilites increases by 4. This benefit can't increase your Bard level to higher than your Hit Dice. However, even if you can't benefit from the full bonus immediately, if you later gain Hit Dice in levels of non-bard classes, you might be able to apply the rest of the bonus. For example, Dravin, a human 6th-level bard/2rd-level fighter, selects this feat and would increase his bard level from 6th to 8th (since he has 8 Hit Dice). Dravin can now use his bardic music ability 8 times per day, his inspire courage increases to +2, and his bardic knowledge check gets a bonus of 8 + his int mod. If he later gained a fighter level, he would gain the remainder of the bonus and his bard level would become 9th (since he now has 9 Hit Dice). Now Dravin can use his bardic music ability 8 times per day, he knows inspire greatness, and his bardic knowledge check gets a bonus of 9 + his int mod.
