Magic Items Granting Feats

Got gp rattling in your character's pocket, but feeling short of feats? In the character development tradeoff between feats and money, it's helpful to be able to buy a bunch of feats in magic items, and I've listed representative magic items that grant feats. However, if the items available don't exactly fit your needs, the price for the feats alone has generally been lacking. This list is my attempt at finding items with feats, and where possible deconstructing them to extract the prices for the feats alone, so that a character with the appropriate item creation feat could craft their own custom feat-granting item.

There are also some items that grant abilities equivalent to a feat, without actually granting the feat itself. These granted "feats" are preceded by a tilde (~).

Feats with separable costs are presented first, followed by items granting limited daily uses of a feat, and finally items granting feats but where the costs for those feats alone were not distinguishable.


Alertness 10,000 gp cost
Ioun Stone - Dark Blue Rhomboid: grants Alertness, as the feat (DMG)

Improved Trip 10,000 gp cost
Staff of Mighty Sweeping: +2 sweeping quarterstaff; wielder gains Improved Trip feat 28,600 (Magic of Faerūn)
[This one is problematic on a couple of levels. Firstly, while in real life a quarterstaff is an excellent tripping weapon, D&D 3.5 no longer recognizes that. (The official 3.5 PH list of tripping weapons is confined to: bolas, spiked chain, flail, dire flail, heavy flail, guisarme, halberd, gnome hooked hammer, kama, scythe, sickle, and whip.) Secondly, when I computed the cost of this item I realized they only priced the MW quarterstaff as a double weapon. The rest of the enhancement (+3 bonus total) is applied only to one end.]

Most of the deconstruction of item costs to extract the price for feats is straightforward by following the cost tables. By looking at several items I determined (with reasonable confidence, I think) that WotC figures the cost for a single save bonus (such as Reflex) is 1/3 the cost of a resistance bonus to all three saves. (When added to an item with other features, such as a granted feat, remember the 1.5x cost multiplier for an additional property.)
