Wizard booser item?


Advice


So I know of a bunch of items that boost a particular aspect of most classes by 4 and I was wondering if wizards got one of those, I figured it would be something like your school powers are considered 4 levels higher.

I'm talking about items like the phylactery of positive/negative channeling, the robe of arcane heritage, the bracers that give +4 level to paladin lay on hands, etc.

There doesn't seem to be a rules question here.

Yeah, this probably needs to be in advice, not rules forum.

Either way, I don't see a question anywhere in the OP, just a couple of statements. What is it you want to know?

Are you looking for items like an Orange Prism Ioun Stone to boost your caster level by one?

At first I thought the thread may be about drunk wizards or something.

Hehe, I was thinking the same thing.

"Well, of course, the answer is a keg of holding."


Well I was asking if an item existed so I figured it was a rules question. I don't really see how I could be clearer than I was in my op about my question, but I will try again.

Premise: Clerics get an item that boosts chanel energy by 4 levels, paladins get an item that boosts lay on hands 4 levels, sorcerers get an item that boosts bloodline powers by 4 levels, monks get an item that boosts unarmed damage and ac bonus by 4 levels, magus gets an item that boosts arcane pool by 4, monks get an item that boosts ki by 4 levels, inquisitor gets an item that boosts bane by 5 levels (an exception), etc.

Conclusion: Most classes if not all get an item that boosts a class feature that is generally not their primary class feature by 4 levels.

Problem: I can't find one for the wizard.

Question: Is there such an item for the wizard? Does anyone know, and can they direct me to it.

I don't think I can be any clearer than I have been. Thanks in advance.

I guess my question would be what are you considering the wizard's primary class feature to be?

Spellcasting? No, there is no item that I am aware of that increases caster level by 4. There are some feats or traits that may increase the caster level but they are capped by a set number and total character level.

Arcane Bond? There are some feats and traits that help out here but they also usually cap out at total character level.

So, I am not an expert on every item, but I will say there are no items that I am aware of that increase either of the above two class features.


I was speculating that it would boost the school powers.

The problem is that most of those features that are being boosted are relatively minor aspects of the class.

Wizards don't have any minor features that are worth boosting. They're far from the only class that has this issue, Fighters and Rogues don't have such an item either.

BTW, I'd really would like to see the item that gives Magus a 4 point boost on their arcane pool. My bladebound would give much to posess such a thing.

Ah, I found the question. It was hidden in a sentence with a comma where a question mark should have been.

Aside from my grammar-naziing, I don't know of any item that does what you are looking for.

**Sorry, bad grammar is a pet peave of mine. I don't mean to be rude.

Again, no magic items that I am aware of boost the powers of any of the arcane schools. There are some favored class bonuses that will increase the number per day or the effectiveness of some of these school powers.

Well the answer seems to be no. That's what I thought, Oh well, thanks anyways guys. I'll still check the tread for a while in case someone pops in last minute with an obscure item.


Reread the first thing it says is that the magus can use them as his/her own.

It's not a straight 4 point boost to the Arcane Pool. It allows up to 4 points to be stored which can only be reclaimed for 3 specific uses, two of them requiring that the Magus take specific arcana to make use of them. The ring does not grant the arcana mentioned in it's description.

If the Magus does not take the reflection and pool strike arcana, the only use she can get out of the ring is a +2 aid on concentration checks.

Not true, you missed a line in the ring's description:

Ring of Arcane Mastery wrote:
A wearer can spend arcane pool points stored in the ring as if they were his own, or can spend them in each of the following ways.

EDIT: Hehe, LazarX must have realized his error...he deleted the post.


Did someone edit a post? There was I post I just replied to that seems to be gone now...


Also the ring implies that the posessor of the ring does not need to know those two arcana in order to use them. It basically gives you two free (not particularly great) arcana.

I searched the Ultimate Equipment PDF for "school power" and got only the Conductive Weapon special ability. So there don't seem to be items that boost your wizard's school powers directly.
