Am I seeing it right that inquisitors and druids are excluded from getting the Divine Protection feat?
The feat says:
Prerequisites: Cha 13, Knowledge (religion) 5 ranks,
ability to cast 2nd-level divine spells; blessings†, domains,
or mystery class feature.
Clerics have the domains class feature. Inquisitors have the domain class feature. (For that it doesn't matter if the Inquisitor chooses a domain or an inquisition since the class feature remains the same and is not identical with domains.) Druids have the nature bond class feature which can grant a domain but still isn't domains.
Is everything correct or did I overlook something? (Until today I believed that Spring Attack and Vital Strike could be combined, so I'm wary now.)
Plural forms don't matter for prerequisites(see a single SLA counting as able to cast spells) so an Inquisitor covers the class feature. I don't think there is an FAQ on it, but there is a dev post that basically states if you have a class feature that grants you an X, you count as having the X class feature. Look at all the animal companion feats, generally they have animal companion class feature as a prerequisite, but there is no such actually named class feature, just a bunch of class features that grant an animal companion. So if you choose a domain for your natures bond, you should also qualify for that prerequisite, but if you choose an animal companion you do not.
I agree with Calth for the inquisitor. I am less convinced for the druid.I am not sure if choosing a domain as your nature bond count as having the domain feature.
Can a druid take boon companion? If yes, then choosing a domain for nature's bond counts as the domain class feature. Any class feature that grants you a full domain qualifies. Take a look at the archetype replacement FAQ, the name of the class feature is less important than the mechanics and rules text. You could call a class feature whatever you want, but if it says you gain X like class feature Y, you count as having class feature Y.
