    Q 545

    The spell quick potion from the Spell Compendium allows a wizard to create a temporary potion, with the same spell limitation as with true potions.

    A) What happens if said potion is consumed toward the end of the duration of the quick potion spell (1 hour/level) and the piggybacking spell's duration extends beyond that? Does the latter's spell duration take precedence?

    B) The spell specifies nothing about caster level limitation. Most commonly, the spell infused in a potion is cast at its minimal caster level, since creating a potion with a higher caster level cost a lot more. However, quick potion has no cost involved, so can the spell contained have a much higher caster level (up to the caster's normal maximum, of course)?

    Long long time ago, during 3.0 redaction, I saw suggestion to give up fighter's Heavy and Medium Armor Proficiency and instead take Hide and Move Silently as class skills. Somewhere in rulebooks. Can't remember where. Can anybody help?

    Question Re: Simple RAW Thread for 3.5 #36: The Triple Dozen

    Q 548

    The Foe Hunter feat gives you a favored enemy - the feat says "This benefit functions like the ranger class feature of the same name, except that the exact type of creature you oppose is determined by your home region, according to the table above."

    The Nemesis feat has a req of "Favored enemy class ability"

    Would that mean if you only have a FE by virtue of the Foe Hunter feat, you don't qualify to for Nemesis?

    A 548 No. It only differs from FE in the way specified: who your FE is. In all other respects (like meeting qualifications) it's identical, so you could take nemesis.

    Correct
    , because the Nemesis feat specifies "class ability" favored enemies gained from feats do not count.

    Sorry, feels like I'm spamming, but got another.

    Q 549

    A character loses use of a feat if they no longer meet the reqs.

    How does this, in turn, affect the feat being a req for something else, like a PrC? I'm assuming since you don't actually lose the feat, just the use of it, there should be no issues? (Leaving aside the eternal argument on what happens when you no longer meet PrC reqs).

    Q550

    Can more than one swift action be used in a round, if the second/third such swift action are taken as move/standard actions? Example PHBII shapeshift variant druid that's in predator form and wants to cast a spell and then go back into predator form in a single turn, sequence of event would be swift action lose the polymorph, standard action cast the spell, swift action as move action go back in predator form

    Q551

    Where is it defined that an immediate action "consumes" next round swift action? On the srd all that it's stated about immediate action is that they are "like swift actiom, but you cam take them anytime, even when it isn't your turn"

    A 550 It is not possible to do this. You cannot sacrifice "greater" actions like move or standard to grant yourself extra "lesser" actions like swifts.

    A 551 It's in the section on immediate actions:

    A550 Well, no, but actually yes. You see, the Rules Compendium has a baffling entry allowing the player to ready a swift action as a standard action (p.110, "How to ready"). Since you can have readied actions go off based on any triggering conditions, you can set your triggering condition to be "when I take my move action" or "when I take my other swift action." Thus, by forgoing a standard action, a turn can be a move action and two swift actions.

    Q552: a shield of arrow catching has the following text:
    Projectiles and thrown weapons that have an enhancement bonus higher than the shield’s base AC bonus are not diverted to the wearer
    if a magic weapon is used to fire a normal projectile, does it bypass the shield? does the bonus of the weapon count, or that of the ammunition?

    Q553: if someone is hit by dimensional anchor, and then subsequently dies, can you teleport their body? is the spell still active after death?

    Magical ranged weapons do not actually provide their enhancement bonus to their ammunition. They are simply treated as magic weapons (and aligned weapons if appropriate) for overcoming DR.

    A 553 No. They were a legal target when the spell checked them so it stays up. Even if spells rechecked targets after they'd been turned into something (which to be clear they don't) dimensional anchor also works on objects. Since the duration's only a minute/lvl, you can just wait a few minutes and teleport it or throw it in your bag of holding and teleport yourself if you're in a hurry for some reason.

    Active Shield Defense
    ( Player's Handbook II, p. 71)

    Benefit
    When fighting defensively and using a shield, you do not take the standard fighting defensively penalties on attacks of opportunity. When using the total defense action and a shield, you still threaten the area around you as normal. You can make attacks of opportunity with a -4 penalty.
    Exception proves the rule.

    A 554 Contention/additional Information

    I'd agree by RAI, but "exception proves the rule" isn't RAW.

    That said, the "Normal" section of that same feat (and probably in the Rules Compendium or somewhere, but I don't have time to check right now) specifies that you can't attack while using Total Defense. Flanking depends on threatened squares, and threatened squares are defined as squares you can make a melee attack into. If you can't attack, you don't threaten.

    So the answer is still no.

    A 555 No. You could be a chameleon, archivist, wyrm wizard, etc. If you are a cleric, this is not on the normal list so you must have the initiate of ilmater feat which requires worshipping ilmater. A paladin can revere any deity and cast this spell.

    You get the +3 from the bow, but the arrow itself is just treated as a magic weapon. Yeah, I thought it was odd too.

    On a related note, an Epic bow doesn't explicitly treat its arrows as Epic.

    Q 556

    Can you "designate an opponent" for the Dodge feat on your turn as someone you aren't seeing yet?

    For example, a character waiting in ambush at a corner, and deciding that said target is "the first opponent who walks past the corner"...

    Or would that requires to ready an action?
