In other words, "You can still gain one of these benefits but increase one of your ability scores by 2."
In other words, "You can increase one of your ability scores by 2—which is the entire benefit a feat is designed to replace—and still get a benefit on top of that."
In other words, the current form of this feat is definitively overpowered.

Remember that a feat is designed to replace a class's Ability Score Increase. One feat is intended to be, at most, roughly equal to increasing your most important ability score by two. - Guy 19:06, 19 September 2018 (MDT)

I am not seeing how you can increase an ability score by more than 1 point. Unless I am missing something, this feat has 3 features which allow you to cast spells without different types of components and the optional abi can only be obtained by not getting the benefits of 2 of these features. As such, I don't see how you can use this effect multiple times, unlike what the feat states.--Blobby383b (talk) 20:12, 19 September 2018 (MDT)
Ah. That's embarrassing. "You can forgo TWO of these three benefits"... to gain the +1 to an ability score. Somehow on my first pass I thought it was 1 benefit for +1 ability score. I am not sure how or why I jumped to that conclusion.
So, forget what I said. That is in fact reasonable. It seems odd to think you can forgo both somatic and verbal components to cast the spell (do you just think or concentrate on it?) but I suppose that is a separate issue, and at a glance doesn't seem unbalanced. - Guy 20:21, 19 September 2018 (MDT)

Where's the number of uses per rest for this? I'm all for recreating 'eschew materials' but 5e is pretty opposed to someone having that sort of thing 'always on'.--Gr7mm Bobb (talk) 15:11, 4 June 2019 (MDT)

Recent Changes To This Feat[edit]

The recent changes to this feat change the prerequisite to something non-standard(ie the ability to cast at least one spell should be used) and changes the effect of the feat so the feat looks nicer. Seeing as these changes are not really constructive, I will be reverting the changes. I hope that in the future discussion can be had about changes without devolving into an edit war between users.--Blobby383b (talk) 13:35, 26 September 2021 (MDT)
