Talk:Prodigious caster (3.5e Feat)

I'd suggest capping the bonus to be equal to the maximum of the variable part of the spell. I'm currently using this feat on my sorcerer with a CHA mod of 10. This makes spells like Energy drain 2d4+10 levels (12-18) instead of 2-8, and a level 1 spell like Ray of Enfeeblement will drain 1d6+15 (16-21) STR instead of 1d6+5 (6-11). As a player's casting stat increases, this bonus gets insane.

I think it'd be best to limit it for Enervation to +8 (max roll of 2d4) and +6 for Ray of Enfeeblement (1d6) so that you don't end up completely overpowered. This cap would have very little effect on healing/damaging spells so it wouldn't be too big a nerf.
