Type of Feat: Class
Prerequisite: Arcane Scholar of Candlekeep level 7.
Specifics: At 7th level, the Arcane Scholar becomes especially adept at maximizing spells. Maximized spells now only use up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell's actual level. Maximized spells apply all variable numeric effects - including damage, number of targets, and so on - at their maximum values.
Use: An improved maximized spell occupies a spell slot two levels higher than normal. Saving throws and opposed rolls, such as those made when Dispel Magic is cast, are not affected.
For a list of all spells which can be enhanced by this feat, see: Category:Spells that can be Maximized.
