Hey, Aj. Before you destroy this page's formatting yet again, the lines of text below are important for making this page function on the wiki. This includes things like showing up on 5e Feats lists and displaying accurate information on said pages, as well as streamlining the official formatting. They do not show up on the page itself, so I suggest you leave them be.

Name Change[edit]

Body Booster to keep idea, but still don't think the benefits fit the title. Stat Booster! is my choice. Red Leg Leo (talk) 10:56, 10 December 2020 (MST)

Rebalanced the Feat[edit]

Hey there! I just totally reworked this entire feat. et me explain why.

Before I do this, this was the original feat:

Prerequisites: Strength, Constitution, or Dexterity score of 15, must be level 4 or higher

Choose 1 of these effects:
• Your unarmed strikes increase by 1 step die and 1 damage die
• Your ac increases 2
• Your Strength, Dexterity or Constitution increases by 2 to a maximum of 24 or two of them increase by 1
• You gain hit points equal to half your total hit points rounded down
• Your flight, climbing, swimming and movement speed increase by 10 feet
• you gain resistance to a damage type of your choice if you already resistant you gain immunity
• if you drop to zero hit points but are not killed outright you can roll 3d4 and gain that many hit points but you gain one level exhaustion <be>

You can choose this feat more than once but not one of these effects more than once

Feats are meant to replace an ability score improvement. That's it. This feat not only has the option to use a better version of an ASI, increasing the maximum as well as the score itself, but also has a lot of other effects that are game-breaking. These include getting resistance or even immunity to a damage type, increasing your hitpoints by 50%, which, for some high-level characters, can increase your HP by 75-100 hitpoints, or getting an incredibly high armor class bonus. You can also outright NOT DIE if you so choose, or, by the way it is worded, just suddenly get a flying speed of 10 feet and your movement speed increases by 10 feet and you can climb faster and swim faster. Almost all of these abilities are too incredibly powerful for a character to have, and, because of the ability to choose the feat several times, you can also get all of these, allowing a character (such as a Barbarian) to get an insane amount of hitpoints in addition to being untouchable because of the speed and armor class bonus, and if they do die they can just say no to that too. This is just much too powerful of a feat, which is why I nerfed it significantly. Hopefully, the original poster of the feat doesn't mind that I reworked it so much. Thanks! --MarshDASavage (talk) 21:22, 23 December 2020 (MST)
