Practiced Bender (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Practiced Bender [Bender]
You never forget to train you bending skills.
Prerequisite: Bending Style 1st
Benefit: Your level for your bending class increases by +4. This can't increase your Bender level beyond your HD. However, even if you can't benefit from the full bonus immediately, if you later gain nonBender-level HD you may be able to apply the rest of the bonus. For example, a human 5th-level Bender/3rd-level fighter who selects this feat would increase his Bender level from 5th to 8th (since he has 8 HD). If he later gained a fighter level, he would gain the remainder of the bonus and his Bender level would become 9th (since he now has 9 HD). This level determines Bending Styles and Elemental Damage only.
