Glorious Heat

When you cast divine fire spells, their heat empowers nearby allies.

Prerequisites: Ability to cast divine spells, caster level 5th.

Benefit: When you cast a divine spell with the [fire] descriptor, choose a single ally within 30 feet that you can see. That ally heals a number of hit points equal to the level of the spell cast and gains a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls until the end of its next turn (see Editor’s Note at right.)

The original text is included below if you or your GM prefers to use it (which is not recommended.)

Original Text: That ally heals half your level in hit points, and gains a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls until the end of its next turn.

Editor’s Note

Paizo only publishes errata when reprinting a book and soft-cover books (which is where this feat came from) are almost never reprinted. As a result there will likely never be any official errata released for this spell. However, the original developer (Mark Moreland) and Lead Designer (Jason Bulmahn) have had this to say about it:

Mark Moreland: “Were we to reprint the book, we would change the Glorious Heat feat to grant the fire spell’s spell level in healing instead of character level. This keeps unlimited use orisons from being spammed, and 1st level spells from being abused at higher levels. This clarification will appear in the July update to the Pathfinder Society Additional Resources document.”

Jason Bulmahn: “Unlimited healing at the cost of a feat and an orison slot is just too good. This is a fix. It is neither elegant, nor my preferred solution (which would have been to catch this before it went to print, but mistakes do slip through), it is simply a fix for the OP system. This fix will go into official campaign documentation, unless Mark and Hyrum decide that instead a ban is more appropriate.”
