Best Feats for Leveling Up in Solasta: Crown of the Magister
Feats in Solasta: Crown of the Magister are visible to all players, but there are some limitations and considerations:
- Depending on the class or skills you’ve chosen, certain feats may be redundant or have similar functions. A small icon will indicate this.
- Some feats will be locked if a character is unable to perform a specific action, lacks proficiency, or doesn’t meet the minimum required stats.
Note: If you’re creating a new character, click on the “At Higher Levels” button when selecting a class. It will provide you with information about the perks and features that unlock as you level up. After completing character creation, you can also select a character and click “level up” to view the available selections. This is primarily for informational purposes, such as seeing subclasses and feats. However, keep in mind that the main campaign in Solasta: Crown of the Magister doesn’t allow you to start with pre-leveled characters.

- Master Enchanter: Proficiency and increased speed when crafting enchanted items; requires the ability to cast spells.
- Powerful Cantrip: When a target succeeds in a saving throw or dodges your cantrip, it still takes half the damage and no other effects. Requires the ability to cast spells.
- Raise Shield: If wielding a shield and about to be hit by a ranged attack, use your reaction to gain +3 AC until the end of the attacker’s turn; proficiency with shields.
- Twin Blade: While dual-wielding (not sword and shield) and about to be hit by a melee attack, use your reaction to gain +3 AC until the end of the attacker’s turn.
Bonus action-related Feats
- Rush To Battle: Use your bonus action to increase movement by 3 until the end of your turn; get -2 AC until the start of your next turn.
- Take Aim: Use your bonus action to Take Aim. Until the end of your turn, your ranged weapon attacks have neither advantage nor disadvantage.
Remember to consider which bonus feats will actually be helpful for a specific character or your party. For example, if you enjoy crafting enchanted/primed items with the Manacalon Rosary, then Master Enchanter would be a suitable choice. Furthermore, it’s advisable to maximize a Shock Arcanist Wizard’s INT rather than choosing a feat (unless you specifically desire Flawless Concentration). On the other hand, an Oath of Tirmar Paladin would benefit more from a bonus feat like Follow Up Strike. This additional attack can even be amplified with radiant damage from Smite. Lastly, classes that frequently employ ranged weapon attacks, like Rangers and Rogues, would greatly benefit from Uncanny Accuracy, allowing them to ignore cover when attacking partially hidden enemies.
