This feat reduces arcane spell failure due to armor and shields by 10%. The character must be proficient in the armor or shield type worn to gain the benifits of this feat. This feat may be taken multiple times. Its effects stack.
By means of this feat, a character may learn a spell not normally on her class list. A character may learn any clerid, druid, or sorcerer/wizard spell of up to one level lower than the highest level spell she can cast. It is added to a wizard's spellbooks, a sorcerer's spells known, or a cleric or druid's spell list. If the spell has a divine focus component, the character must instead us a small crystal rod worth at least 50 gold per spell level (this is a focus, not a consumed component). Said spell also added to the class spell list for that character. For example, Zurondo Wizbang, a level 11 wizard, takes this feat upon gaining his 12th level. Since he can cast level 6 wizard spells, he may choose any druidic or clerical spell of up to 5th level and add it to his spell books. Zurondo chooses entangle, which is then added to his spellbook and his class list (allowing him to use wands and similiar items).
