Fitz10019 - thanks for the table! I'm not quite sure what to do with it yet, but it looks handy!

You only get the bonus when casting on the defensive or when in a grapple.
If you are casting on the defensive or when grappling, you probably have not done something right, and that extra +1 ain't gunna help you. But that extra +3 may help against that archer or monk that is trying to disrupt your spellcasting through damage (which is not covered in Combat Casting)...
I also love how that very line has a grammar mistake.
Other gems - admitting that EWP is 50% as good as Weapon Spec but giving it 90% the cost, or describing Improved Initiative as "not quite as good as a +2/+2 skill feat because you normally can only use it once per combat".
