Talk:Great Ability Feat Variant (3.5e Variant Rule)
From D&D Wiki
Yes, this is categorically better than the normal Great (ability) epic feats. That is purposeful. I feel that the normal feats are too weak for the cost of an epic feat. I also feel that spending an epic feat to increase an ability by 1 point per 2 levels isn't OP for a higher balance campaign. Epic levels are the point where the characters are entering into the ranks of the greatest legendary heros/villians of myth and yore.
If a particular DM feels this feat is too strong for their campaign, but alsofeels the normal feats are too weak for their cost, then (s)he may adjust the rate of increase to better suit. --Elohim (talk) 04:40, 30 September 2014 (MDT)
