Excerpts: Primal Power Feats

In today's Primal Power preview, we present new feats for all characters and of course for primal heroes as well!

New Feats

The feats presented here are tailored for primal characters, although a few of them can be used by characters who use any power source.

You must meet a feat’s prerequisites, if any, to take the feat. If you ever lose a prerequisite for a feat, you can’t use the feat until you meet the prerequisite again. A feat that has a class as a prerequisite is available only to members of that class, including characters who have joined the class through a class-specific multiclass feat.
