Tap Item [Magical]

You may draw upon the power of existing magic items in order to create new ones.


Any craft permanent item feat such as Craft Rod, Craft Wondrous Item or Forge Ring


When creating a new magic item using one of the prerequisite feats, you may draw up to half of the XP cost from another, existing item of the same type. The item from which the energy is taken is destroyed in the process. The item tapped cannot be cursed, and this feat has no effect on minor or major artifacts, or epic magic items. The amount of XP that can be drawn from any item is equal to half the XP that would be necessary to create that item. If an item has charges, its original XP value is reduced by the fraction of charges used.


In campaigns with Psionics this feat may also be used to tap existing psionic items for powering magic items, and both magic and psionic items may be used to power non-charged psionic items.
