Does this feat give you the arcana of the bloodline?

If not, does anything?


Eldritch Heritage never gives the arcana. The only way to get the arcana is to take a level of Sorcerer.

It can, if you choose the Arcane Bloodline, which you can, if you have the right Skill Focus feat.

Oh, wait, so you mean instead of picking the level 1 attack power, take the arcana?

Wait, you mean the arcane bloodline specifically, I gather?

Why is that? The feat only says you gain the 1st level power.

Oh, I misread that.

No, you do not gain the Arcana.


It happens. I see it all the time.

Heres a fun question to add, how does the feat interact with abilities that are both a bloodline power and a 1st level arcana.


If it counts as an arcana, Eldritch Heritage shouldn't give you the power, beause it can't give you an arcana.

Grand Lodge

Ok, so sorcerer is the only way to get it then, I guess?


Pretty much. Its not often you can emulate a class feature through a feat or item.

You can smite, you can rage, you can get favored enemies. You can certainly cast loads of spells. You can inspire, be a knowledge masta, and sneak attack.

A lot of class features are repeatable via feats/items. Heck, you can get a bloodline, this is just one bit of it you can't get at, and that's ok.

Please elaborate on smite, rage, favored enemy, and sneak attack. I really want those with just feats. How do you do it? :)
