Getting back caster levels (for multiclassing purposes)


Advice


Hey folks, I remember a feat existing that boosted a spellcaster's caster level by up to 4 levels but no more than their Hit Dice. It didn't give more spells known or spell slots, but helped multiclass casters recover lost levels.

Am I nuts and mixing it up with a trait or another feat?

I swear I read it in one of the official paizo books and I can't find it. It is like Boon Companion for spellcasters.

There's magical Knack which is a trait and gives you 2 levels. Also I think the orange ioun stone gives you 1. Also if your a half elf you can take the bifricated magic for 1 to two classes


I recall 3.5 having a few feats with that functionality.

It's a 3.5 feat that never got converted to Pathfinder, sadly. Magical Knack is the closest we have.

Tangentially related, we have the Prestigious Spellcaster feat. It only works on prestige classes with "dead" spellcasting levels, and is only gives back one level, but it gives you spells known and spell slots and not just caster level.

I was afraid of that, I've been bouncing back and forth between a 3.5 game in which I am a player and a Pathfinder game in which I GM. The feats have been mixing in my head a lot. I'm working on a write up for Prestige classes right now and couldn't find that feat on Archives on Nethys. Makes sense since it doesn't exist.

Guess I'm stuck with Knack and Prestigious Spellcaster to solve these issues. Thanks fellows.


As I recall the feat in 3.5 was called Practiced Spellcaster.

There is a 3rd party feat called "Improved Caster Level" that does the exact same thing as the D&D 3.5 feat "Practiced Spellcaster". That feat can be found at d20pfsrd.com.


Guilds have something:

Eclectic Training (5 Fame): wrote:
Guilds often require members to master and train in different subjects. When your Fame score in a guild reaches 5, choose one spellcasting class you have at least 1 level in—you increase your effective caster level in that class (including the number of spells you know and can cast per day) by +1, to a maximum caster level equal to your total Hit Dice. Single-classed spellcasters should still pick a class to which this bonus applies, since this bonus is retroactive

The bonus to caster level you gain from Eclectic Training increases to +3 (but is still limited by your total Hit Dice). You may select a second spellcasting class to gain a +1 bonus to effective caster level
