As we mentioned before, we’re creating Pathfinder 2e General Feats. There is a serious lack of general feats and the best ones are all level 1. So we’re creating more. We’re almost done with Book of Heroes: 10 11th-Level General Feats where you will find these and more. But until we’re finished, we wanted to share with you a few more.
I wanted to take a few moments and talk about what kinds of feats we created. We started off by creating upgrades to the original general feats. Take Stone Step here for example. Feather Step let’s you Step into difficult terrain but not greater difficult terrain. Well, the upgrade seems obvious: you can Step into greater difficult terrain. Greater difficult terrain is like hurricanes. So this should not be easy so I feel comfortable making this an 11th level feat.
Uncanny Acumen here is a different case. This one owes its origins to True Perception, the only Level 19 feat in the core game as much as it does to Canny Acumen. You can only take True Perception if you are Legendary in Perception and only a handful of classes get that. That just seems wrong. General feats, anyone should be able to take. So characters need a way to be able to reach that. So we borrowed the idea from Canny Acumen and made Uncanny Acumen as its upgrade. Mind you, Canny Acumen is not a requirement since even the most unperceptive classes in the game (I’m looking at you sorcerer and wizard) become expert at 11th level. If you have no interest in being more perceptive at lower levels, that’s your call. But if you want to hit Legendary and gain True Perception at level 19, this is the only feat you need to meet the prerequisites. Canny Acumen becomes an unnecessary speed bump. And speed bumps are just unfun.
