Class-bent Item Emporium!

This topic is here to list of all the class-bent items (ones that add to a specific class feature), so people can have some go-to items if they're playing a class or to help take some of the sting out of multiclassing. As it stands so far, none of the items have been organized or rated, I've just copy-pasted them willy-nilly as I found anything that applied to a class feature.

If you find an item that modifies a class ability, post it here (along with what it does)--if it hasn't been posted here before, of course. Don't want to clutter the thread with duplicate entries!

General format is:
'(class it pertains to) ITEM/FEAT/TRAIT NAME (if it's a third party item/feat/whatever)',
followed by the statblock (spoiler optional).

Examples below (use CTRL+F to find the class you're looking for).

(witch) Witching Gown

Spoiler:

Aura moderate abjuration; CL 7th
Slot body; Price 35,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.

DESCRIPTION
Spun from combed cotton, this simple, unassuming gown bears a strong aura of witchcraft. These magical garments are highly sought after by witches, for though anyone may wear a witching gown, only a witch may realize its full potential. A witching gown grants its wearer a +2 resistance bonus on all saving throws and a +2 competence bonus on all Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate skill checks. When worn by a witch, these bonuses double.

In addition, a witch may change the appearance and style of the gown to match her whims (as the glamered armor special ability) and adopt virtually any disguise, gaining a +10 bonus on Disguise checks that incorporate the gown’s appearance. Only a true seeing spell or similar magic can pierce this effect.

Lastly, a witch may cast a single touch range spell of 4th level or lower into the gown. Thereafter, the gown holds the magic for up to 24 hours, functioning as a spite spell against the next foe to strike the witch with a successful melee attack or combat maneuver. The gown’s spite spell counts as an active spite effect for the witch wearing the gown.

If donned by a character with the Stunning Fist feat, the robe lets her make one additional stunning attack per day.

Each hour its owner spends sitting on the mat without taking any other action, he can attempt to center himself by making a Wisdom check with a DC of 10 plus the monk's current number of ki points (note that ability checks, like skill checks, do not automatically succeed on a 20).

DESCRIPTION

These gloves are embroidered with a pattern of unusual arcane sigils. Once per day as a free action upon command, the gloves of arcane gathering are able to break down a touch spell currently “held” by wearer (discharging the spell harmlessly).

For example, if the wizard chose “evocation” when he prepared his spells that morning, until the next time he prepares spells, he can spontaneously convert a prepared fireball into any other evocation wizard spell of 3rd level or lower that he knows.

While wearing the ring, an oracle has access to that revelation and may use it as if she had it as a normal class feature. The oracle must have the appropriate mystery to use the ring, and must meet the level requirements (if any) of the revelation itself; for example, a ring of revelation (combat healer) is only usable by an oracle of at least 7th level with the battle mystery. If the oracle already has that revelation and the revelation gives an ability with a limited number of uses per day, the oracle can use that ability one additional time per day. The ring has no effect if worn by a non-oracle.

A lesser ring of revelation contains a revelation that has no level prerequisite or a prerequisite that is less than 6th level. A greater ring of revelation contains a revelation that requires the oracle to be 7th level or higher. A superior ring of revelation contains a revelation that requires the oracle to be 11th level or higher.

Forge Ring, creator must be an oracle with the desired revelation; Cost 5,000 gp (lesser), 8,000 gp (greater), 12,000 gp (superior).


That's all I can find on the pfsrd (so far), which as far as I know is still missing a great deal--particularly since the release of Ultimate Equipment, as well as my own incredible aptitude at missing things, so I'm sure this is merely a fraction of what's actually out there.

I approve of this.

Perhaps a guide to class specific items is in order?

That was pretty much why I made this topic--I mean, I'm no good at organizing/rating the effectiveness of stuff myself, but if someone wants to take the items people post here and make a guide (HINT HINT) it could really help people out.


bump for new interest.


giving this another bump in hopes people see and can contribute/discuss, I myself am off for sleep.

This Is a good Idea, I have the Ultimate Equipment book, I will try to add some later.


I second that this is a good idea. Right now I cannot add anything.
As a side note, soon here, I plan on going through all the wondrous items on the PFSRD in hopes of finding interesting gems and whatnot just to increase my knowledge base, if I do that, this will be a good spot to dump some of my findings.
Ps if I do manage to do that, God help me, there are TONS of wondrous items to go through....


As now seems a more active time of day, I'll give this a bump and hope some people know of more (particularly stuff from ultimate equipment, as I don't have access to it at the moment).


Very nice idea, I hope someone will make a guide out of it, it would be really useful!

I DEFINITELY approve of such a guide.


As an idea it might be best to separate the spoiler entires by actual class and not by each item, with class listed above. It makes it easier for people to try to fond all the gear for one class, or what would be good to purchase for a particular class option, without having to scroll through so much. Once they open the spoiler, they can curl+f, search, for whatever specific item, body slot, or whatnot that way. Just an idea.


Only issue with that is that you cant edit a post here after X time has passed, so were I (or someone else) to make a nice organized post with spoilers for each class it'd be completely useless in an hour or so, since you couldn't add anything to it anymore. And that some items apply to more than one class (I mean sure you could double it up in the other class spoiler, but that'd take a long time.).

also, some armor enchants:

(good cavalier/paladin/etc.) CHAMPION (armor enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +1 BONUS
AURA faint abjuration CL 5th WEIGHT —
This armor special ability works only for good creatures with
the challenge ability (such as cavaliers) or the smite evil
ability (such as paladins, half-celestials, and creatures with
the celestial creature template). A wearer with one of these
abilities gains a +2 sacred bonus to AC against attacks from
the chosen opponent.

This armor special ability works only for evil creatures with
the challenge ability (such as cavaliers) or the smite good
ability (such as antipaladins, half-fiends, and creatures with
the fiendish creature template). A wearer with one of these
abilities gains a +2 profane bonus to AC against attacks from
the chosen opponent.
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
COST: +1 bonus
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, protection from good

(bard) HARMONIZING (armor enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +15,000 GP
AURA moderate illusion CL 7th WEIGHT —
Every step taken in harmonizing armor produces a symphony
of sounds. The armor harmonizes with music played, lyrics
sung, and words spoken by its wearer, creating a pleasant
counter-melody. Its wearer gains a +5 competence bonus on
Perform checks, but takes a –5 penalty on Stealth checks. The
wearer can be silent only if he takes no physical actions. The
armor also amplifies harmful sounds, and the wearer gains
vulnerability to sonic energy damage (sonic energy attacks
deal an additional 50% damage to the wearer).
If the wearer has the bardic performance class feature,
the harmonizing armor causes bonuses and penalties from
performances that have an audible component to continue
for 1 round after the wearer ceases performing. Beginning
a new bardic performance ends the effects of the previous
performance immediately. This ability does not stack with the
Lingering Performance feat.
The harmonizing ability can be applied to any armor, but
not shields.
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
COST: +7,500 GP
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, major image or bardic performance

(WITCH/wizard/druid/etc.) HOSTELING (armor enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +7,500 GP
AURA moderate conjuration CL 9th WEIGHT —
A suit of armor or shield with this special ability hides living
animals within its iconography to keep it safe. The wearer can
speak a command word to magically store an animal to which he
is bonded, such as an animal companion, a familiar, or mount.
The stored animal appears as a symbol emblazoned upon the
armor or shield, either one that mimics the appearance of the
animal or that is more symbolic and abstract.
While stored, the animal is sleeping and provides the
wearer no benefit (such as a familiar’s skill bonus). The size
of animal that can be stored depends on the type of armor or
shield. A suit of light armor, medium armor, or a light shield
or heavy shield can store one animal up to the wearer’s
size. A suit of heavy armor or a tower shield can store one
animal up to one size category larger than the wearer. A
second command word releases the stored animal from the
hosteling armor or shield. A released animal immediately
awakens, appears in a space adjacent to the wearer, and can
take actions on the round it appears.
Because the stored animal is sleeping rather than in
suspended animation (or even hibernating), it ages and gets
hungry at the normal rate while stored. A hosteling armor or
shield automatically releases a stored animal 24 hours after
it was stored inside.
This armor special ability still works on bonded magical
beasts that were once animals, but not outsiders, oozes, or
other exotic companion creatures.

This armor or shield is brightly polished, and its mirrorbright
surface is magically endowed with the ability to
bring comfort to the wearer’s companions. Allies within 30
feet of the wearer gain a +4 morale bonus on saving
throws against fear effects. If the wearer has an ability
that grants a morale bonus on saving throws against fear
(such as a paladin’s aura of courage, a bard’s countersong,
or a cavalier’s banner ability), the morale bonus increases

(cavalier/paladin/inquisitor/etc.) WARDING (armor enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +1 BONUS
AURA strong abjuration CL 12th WEIGHT —
Once per day as an immediate action, the wearer of warding
armor can activate it to end all active challenge, judgment,
and smite abilities affecting her. This does not prevent
opponents from selecting her as a target for these abilities
in the future. As a swift action, the wearer can expend one
of her own challenge, judgment, or smite abilities to refresh
the armor’s ability to end these attacks.
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
COST: +1 bonus
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, atonement

(druid) WILD (armor enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +3 BONUS
AURA moderate transmutation CL 9th WEIGHT —
Armor with this special ability usually appears to be made
from magically hardened animal pelt. The wearer of a suit of
armor or a shield with this ability preserves his armor bonus
(and any enhancement bonus) while in a wild shape. Armor
and shields with this ability usually appear to be covered in
leaf patterns. While the wearer is in a wild shape, the armor
cannot be seen.

(barbarian) HAMATULA HIDE (armor)

Spoiler:

PRICE: 44,215 GP
AURA moderate transmutation CL 9th WEIGHT 12 lbs.
Crafted from the flayed skin of a barbed devil, this imposing
+2 spiked hide armor weighs half the normal weight. When
its wearer rages, the armor’s spikes elongate and the hide
bonds to her skin, providing fire resistance 10. Any creature
that strikes the wearer with a melee weapon, unarmed
strike, or a natural weapon while the spikes are elongated
takes 1d8+6 points of piercing damage from the armor’s
barbs (unless using a weapon with reach). While the wearer
is enraged, spells that cause additional damage to evil
outsiders deal that increased damage to her.
A barbarian with fiend totem rage powers gains additional
benefits from hamatula hide. If she has the lesser fiend
totem rage power, she gains a +1 profane bonus to Armor
Class while raging. If she has the fiend totem rage power,
the damage caused by her barbs increases to 2d8+6 and
stacks with the barbed defense granted by the armor. If she
has the greater fiend totem ability, she gains fire resistance
20 when raging.

(rogue) MURDERER’S BLACKCLOTH (armor)

PRICE: 12,405 GP
AURA moderate necromancy CL 9th WEIGHT 10 lbs.
This silk +1 shadow padded armor i s a s d ark a s n ight a nd
stitched with thread the color of dried blood. When worn by a
rogue with the bleed talent, it increases the bleed damage of
the rogue’s sneak attacks by +1.
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS

(druid) SCARAB BREASTPLATE (armor)

Spoiler:

PRICE: 32,350 GP
AURA moderate transmutation CL 8th WEIGHT 30 lbs.
This +3 breastplate is crafted from the carapace of a giant
scarab beetle, enchanted to be as hard and reflective as
polished steel. The wearer suffers only half damage from
vermin swarms and gains a +2 resistance bonus on saving
throws against the extraordinary abilities of vermin swarms.
In addition, once per day on command, the wearer can
transform the scarab breastplate into a swarm of scarab
beetles that skitter from her chest to attack creatures nearby.
This swarm has statistics identical to an army ant swarm
(Bestiary 16) and attacks any creatures within its space.
The wearer can command the swarm to move (including
changing the shape of the swarm) as a move action, but
the swarm must remain adjacent to her. If the swarm is
reduced to 0 hit points, if the wearer is forced to move away
from the swarm, or if the wearer commands it to return
to her as a move action, the swarm crawls back onto the
wearer’s torso and returns to armor form. While the swarm
is active, the wearer is not considered to be wearing the
scarab breastplate (except for purposes of commanding the
swarm) and gains no defensive benefits from it.
A druid of 6th level wearing a scarab breastplate can use
her wild shape ability to duplicate vermin shape I (Ultimate
Magic). At 8th level, she can also use it to duplicate vermin
shape II (Ultimate Magic).

(oracle) SOOTHSAYER’S RAIMENT (armor)

Spoiler:

PRICE: 10,300 GP
AURA faint divination CL 5th WEIGHT 40 lbs.
This +1 chainmail is attuned to a particular oracular mystery
and contains a revelation associated with that mystery (see
the oracle class description in the Advanced Player’s Guide).
Its design and coloration are typically suggestive of its related
mystery. While wearing the armor, an oracle has access to
that revelation and may use it as if she had it as a normal class
feature. The oracle must have the appropriate mystery to use
the armor; for example, a soothsayer’s raiment (battlecry) is
only usable by an oracle of battle. If the wearer already has
that revelation and the revelation grants an ability with a
limited number of uses per day, the oracle can use that ability
one additional time per day. This ability has no effect if the
armor is worn by a non-oracle.
For divination spells with a percentage-based chance of
success (such as augury and divination), the wearer’s chance
increases by +5.
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
COST: 5,300 GP

(barbarian) FURIOUS (weapon enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +1 BONUS
AURA moderate enchantment CL 8th WEIGHT —
This special ability can only be placed on melee weapons. A
furious weapon serves as a focus for its wielder’s anger. When
the wielder is raging or under the effect of a rage spell, the
weapon’s enhancement bonus is +2 better than normal. If the
wielder has a rage power that gives a skill bonus while raging
(such as raging climber, raging leaper, or raging swimmer), the
wielder gains an enhancement bonus to that skill whenever
the weapon is wielded or held in her hand, even when she is
not raging. This bonus is equal to the enhancement bonus of
the weapon (and also includes the +2 if the wielder is raging).
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS COST +1 bonus
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, rage

(inquisitor) JURIST (weapon enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +1 BONUS
AURA faint transmutation CL 4th WEIGHT —

first round of her judgment, and increases by +1 each round, to a
maximum of +3 on the third and following rounds.

(monk) KI FOCUS (weapon enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +1 BONUS
AURA moderate transmutation CL 8th WEIGHT —
This special ability can be placed only on melee weapons.
The magic weapon serves as a channel for the wielder’s
ki, allowing her to use her special ki attacks through the
weapon as if they were unarmed attacks. These attacks
include the monk’s ki strike, quivering palm, and the
Stunning Fist feat (including any condition that the monk
can apply using this feat).
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
COST: +1 bonus
Craft Magic Arms and Armor, creator must be a monk

(monk) KI INTENSIFYING (weapon enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +2 BONUS
AURA strong transmutation CL 12th WEIGHT —
The weapon channels and amplifies the wielder’s ki, allowing
her to use her special ki attacks through the weapon as though
they were unarmed attacks. These attacks include the monk’s
ki strike, quivering palm, and the Stunning Fist feat. The save
DC for ki abilities used through the weapon increases by half
the enhancement bonus of the weapon (minimum 1).
After a successful strike with a ki intensifying weapon, the
wielder can spend 1 ki point as a swift action to perform a
combat maneuver to bull rush, disarm, reposition, or trip as
a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity. Any
bonuses or penalties applicable to the weapon attack also
apply to this combat maneuver check. The wielder cannot
move from her space as a part of the chosen maneuver.
Only melee weapons can have the ki intensifying ability.
It cannot be placed on an amulet of mighty fist or similar
non-weapon item. Weapons with the ki focus ability can be
upgraded to be ki intensifying.

(gunslinger) LUCKY (weapon enchant)

Spoiler:

PRICE: +1 BONUS
AURA moderate transmutation CL 8th WEIGHT —
This special ability can only be placed on one-handed or
two-handed firearms. A lucky firearm has its own magical
reservoir of grit (see Ultimate Combat). Usually this grit is
stored within the marks of an engraving or in a trinket that
hangs from the firearm. Often these marks take the form of
holy symbols or fetishes, but such a reservoir can take just
about any form. This reservoir holds 1 grit point, which is
refreshed at the start of each day. Whether or not the wielder
of a lucky firearm has any deeds (see Ultimate Combat), she
can always spend 1 grit point from the lucky firearm to reroll
an attack from it that would result in a misfire. When the
wielder does so, she must take the second result, even if that
attack roll also results in a misfire.
CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS COST +1 bonus

A cavalier wearing these vambraces is considered two class levels higher for purposes of determining the effects of his challenge class feature. Furthermore, once per day as a swift action, a cavalier with the tactician class feature can increase the area in which he grants teamwork feats. Before the end of his next turn, when the cavalier grants his allies a teamwork feat, he can grant it to all allies within 60 feet, though they must still be able to see and hear him.

Anybody know of any items that improve class aspects of the Alchemist? They seem to get little love in that front.

Improving Your Class with Items


Dot to find later.


Gotta dot this one for sure.. was just thinking the other day that I wish somebody would make something like this :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Ultimate Equipment has a LOT of items for the Alchemist. I don't have my copy handy at the moment but look at:

Boro Beads (basically pearls of power for Alchemists)

and there are a few items that allow for combining of extracts and a (chest? slot I thinK) item that reduces the mental penalties of the alchemist's mutagen.

Basically Ultimate Equipment has a lot to offer the Alchemist.


Guide looks good but maybe we should have types of char. List to . Like range,melee,arcane caster and the like . Also someone needs to add sniper goggles to ninja

Shadow Lodge

Sniper goggles added to ninja and rogue, good call.

Good idea with the types, but this is a guide for items that add to specific class abilities like sneak attack or channel, instead of items that are good for specific types of characters.

Improving Your Class with Items


they'd be good for vivisectionist alchemists as well, in those off situations where they're either out of bombs or not feeling the melee scene. maybe like a minor note.

also, the 'courageous' armor enchant is amazing for anyone with morale bonueses to stuff--paladins, cavaliers, bards, and *especially* barbarians (it increases all of their rage benefits--stat increases/will/superstition/etc--by 1/2 the weapon's enhancement bonus).


bumping for today/night.

Shadow Lodge

I can't find that ability anywhere. where is it from?
I found the Courageous melee weapon enhancement. Which give a bonus to all morale bonus equal to its enhancement bonus. Which is still really powerful. A +2 Couragous Greatsword = greater rage for the barbarian.

Shadow Lodge

Courageous added to Barbarian - are there any other classes who give themselves morale bonus as a key class ability?

Also, does anybody have Ultimate Magic and want to share a few Alchemist-centric items with me?


whoops, i meant courageous weapon enchant. afaik bards (their various performances), paladins (auras and spells), and cavaliers (uhh... i cant remember) also work with lots of morale bonuses.

though most of the paladins morale from auras only apply to allies--they're just straight up immune to most things.


This interests me. Isn't there a useful item compendium on these forums for various immunity , ie. fear, mind effecting, stun; items for useful things characters should have, like flight, true seeing, rerolls for saves, teleport, haste effects.
If possible an amalgamation into the Pazio Forums Ultimate Item Guide is in order.

Shadow Lodge

If people collect the information, I'd certainly write it up. It would probably be a second guide though.


common knowledge, but bane weapons work especially well with rangers, too. And instant enemy with the horn of the huntmaster for the bonded companions flavor of ranger makes that item absolutely essential for the boss BBEG fights.


Maybe an external database/page is needed for this...

Say a Google Docs Spreadsheet or Document.


The item amulet of inner strength, I think that's what it's called, from ultimate equipment allows you some ki points use ability, and also as a swift action get an extra attack. This is good for any zen archer type monks or monks in general, as well as as full round abuses, like a come and get me barbarian, an archer of any sort, or a TWF type character.


I'm surprised about the fact that I hadn't dropped a dot here.

Shadow Lodge

@ Azaelas, Lol, read the thread. Here it is: Improving your Class with Items

@ Grizzly - Awesome! Can you get the exact wording by any chance?


bard gear is a bit on the underwhelming side of things... Get on it Paizo!
