Is this feat overpowered? And does a character use his highest attack bonus for the extra attack?
|#2cam_banksJun 21, 2006 13:41:17||No, it's not overpowered. It's actually shared by a number of other D&D products. It's in d20 Star Wars, for instance.|
And yes, it's at your normal attack bonus.
|#3zombiegleemaxJun 21, 2006 16:15:11||It is a pretty good feat that I have seen people use, in a Star Wars game, but I think that it would also fit a knight or a body guard type character.|
|#4brettschoJun 22, 2006 17:54:29||Actually, it is interesting that you mention that. I am not really confortable with giving my players an extra standard action, particually mages. It smacks of 3.0 haste to me. I prefer a slightly altered feat which I have taken to calling "Burst of Speed" which does the exact same thing as Heroic Surge, except that you only gain extra move actions. I guess that I don't mind a fighter moving and getting a full attack as much as I mind two normal spells (and sometimes a quickened spell) in a single round . . . but perhaps that is just me. Oh, and I realize that I sort of stole the name "Burst of Speed" from Star Wars, but it was the best name that I could come up with. Anyways, I suggest it as an alternative to Heroic Surge.|
|#5clarkvalentineJun 22, 2006 19:18:39||I'm fairly certain Heroic Surge is worded in such a way that it specifically forbids using it to cast a second spell.|
|#6theredrobedwizardJun 22, 2006 20:54:40||I do believe that the actions listed are "move" or "attack"; not "move" or "standard" - thus precluding someone casting two spells.|
|#7zombiegleemaxJun 24, 2006 8:21:26||The feat does not work like the 3.0 version of the Haste spell. Reading the description and definitions as a review can be helpful.|

I'm glad it doesn't work like 3.0 haste, but still it's a useful feat. I wish I could see more feats designed for dragonlance only.
