View Full Version : woot! just found Automatic Quicken Spell

2007-06-21, 09:18 AM
ok, here's the set-up, i'm playing a centaur currently at 27HD, 15 lvls of ranger, few levels of sorcerer, arcane archer and deepwood sniper, and recently became a "chosen" of my goddess (Elohnna) as well as a "monster of legend". well, i've been bummed 'cause i can't use my archery enhancing spells effectively in combat along with my ranged attacks (i've specialized in ranged attacks)... spells like hunter's mercy, find the gap, flame arrow, swift haste, etc.

well, i just found a way with the help of Automatic Quicken Spell!!!

granted the pre-requisites are not simple or automatic for someone of my class, but because i'm a "chosen" i was given the ability to cast one arcane spell of each level every day, and all i have to do is work my spellcraft up to 30 ranks and get the "quicken spell feat" and then all my 0 through 3rd lvl spells are automatically quickened including all my ranger spells (up to 3rd lvl) and the few sorcerer spells i have!

ok granted it's a committment - if for nothing else than that it takes 2 feats and 30 skill points, but i'll have it all by 28th HD

oh, yes, there is a question in here, casting all my 0-3 lvl spells as quickened spells, (assuming one of them is swift haste) does that mean that in a full round i can cast more than one spell? like one as a quickened action, then one as a standard action? then what? can i cast one as my hasted action? i'm pretty sure that the answer to that is no, because there was another thread about hasted actions and i seem to remember you can't do that, but i'd love some clarification.

Well I'm pretty psyched about it so i thought i'd share with the class just in case anyone else is agonizing about the same type of situation that i had.

good luck and post any comments


p.s. my centaur is pretty kick arse, and as a chosen of Elohnna (granted it would have made more sense for them to be divine spells, but we didn't think of that at the time, the only "chosen" template package we found included arcane spells) i guess Elohnna could summon me to aid someone who prayed to her for help, so if any of you guys want to use my character for that purpose, feel free to e-mail me, just don't get me killed - lol

You cannot cast more than one quickened spell per round, even when hasted.

(misread the question)

You can cast one quickened spell and one other spell in a round, yes.

You can - but you need the 'multispell' epic feat.

You can only take one Swift action per round. A Quickened spell counts as a Swift action.

Also, Multispell requires that you have access to 9th level spells.

And thatwolfguy, I'd observe that you're playing an Epic level PC, and a pretty poorly built one at that. You can get free Quickened spells at mid levels via Divine Metamagic, Kobold Sorcerer Substitution levels, the Battle Blessing feat, Sudden Metamagic, or Rods of Metamagic. There's nothing special about getting it at Epic levels.
