Bouncing Spell-Like Ability (Monster)

You can retarget one of your spell-like abilities when it fails to affect its original target.

Prerequisite(s): Spell-like ability at caster level 4th or higher.

Benefit(s): Choose one of your spell-like abilities, subject to the restrictions described in this feat. You can use the chosen spell-like ability as a bouncing spell-like ability three times per day (or less, if the ability is normally usable only once or twice per day).

Whenever you use a bouncing spell-like ability against a single target and the ability has no effect on it (whether due to spell resistance or a successful saving throw), as a swift action, you can redirect the spell-like ability to target another eligible creature within range. The redirected spell-like ability behaves as if its new target were the original target for the spell-like ability. Spell-like abilities that affect a target in any way (including a lesser effect from a successful saving throw) can’t be redirected in this manner.

You can only select a spell-like ability duplicating a spell with a level less than or equal to 1/2 your caster level (round down) – 1.

Special: This feat can be taken multiple times. Each time it is taken, you can apply it to a different spell-like ability.
