Your keen eye for tracking lends you the ability to pick out flaws in your quarry's defences, reducing the effective resistances of the target to your attacks while you're tracking them.
Rangers are explorers and guides of the Realm. Because of this, they have learned how to discern the lay of the land. This Feat grants the ability to learn Cartography and the use of maps. The Ranger receives 30 skill points in Cartography and a map kit. Additional materials can be purchased from scribes.
This Feat gives the Rangers/Druids the ability to gain an animal companion. Once this Feat is gained, the character must enter the Forest and send out the Call of Bonding. The animal type will be the animal that responds to the character\'s bonding call. As the Feat skill progresses, the higher types of that animal will answer the character's call. The death of a companion carries a heavy price.
As a master marksman with the bow, you can pinpoint vital spots on your opponent\'s body. When this Feat is activated, the Archer\'s next few arrows will do additional damage.
You have learned how to tap into your Mana pool to place an small enchantment on your arrows. This technique is a temporary, one-time minor enchantment on the weapon. The damage bonus will last only a small time before it expires. The strength of the enchantment will increase as the Archer becomes more skilled in its use.
With your strange ability of keen eyesight, you can wield a bow with greater accuracy.
Being of the Archer class, you have focused your training on learning how to wield the bow more effectively than any other class. Thus, you gain the ability to use the more powerful bow types. This will allow the character to advance the skill further than normally possible as most of the stronger bow types are denied to every character class type.
You learn the great art of concealment. Stealth cap raises to 80 and you gain 30 stealth skill.
