    Meh, there was a feat that increased if you could already wear, so i guess with battle sorceror you could get in medium, but I just threw these together to replace all of that anyhow. It does the job, although not sure if 3 feats are too many...

    To get to the last feat in this chain, as a straight wizard, it would take...
    Light Armor Prof, Medium Armor Prof, Heavy Armor Prof, Shield Prof, Tower Shield Prof, and all three of these. That's eight feats.
    Of course, a single level in Fighter immediately gives you proficiency in all armor and shields, meaning it only takes three feats and a class level. (Added bonus: you get a d10 hit die, +1 BAB, and a fighter bonus feat! All in exchange for one wizard level.)
    Oh, and I don't think the current wording of Master War Mage does not actually allow you to ignore the Tower Shield penalty, as Armor is considered a bit different from Shields.

    I'd say: drop the need for Tower Shield prof, reword Master Warmage to something along the lines of "you may ignore the Arcane Spellcasting Failure of all equipment you are proficient with".
    Consider reducing the feat requirements, unless it is intended for it to be so expensive for a straight wizard (and near unobtainable for a straight sorcerer).
    Apologies for any poor wording, my brain is always broken
    Thanks for making me best axolotl avatar 2015, smuchmuch!

    Yes, that was intentional

    Ah, I'll add that. Fixed.

    This is made for gishes, not straight casters. I try not to boost them too much with feats I make

    I think I fixed the master's text, as what equipment would there be besides armor and shields with ASF
