Universalist (Legendary Wizard Archetype)

To study magic in its entire breadth and scope is an impossible task to most, choosing to specialize to give themselves the chance to understand as much as possible. And yet to a universalist, such a choice is seen as weakness. Mages most dedicated, universalist know that to study magic without the full scope of what is possible is a fool’s errand.


A universalist does not select a school in which to specialize, and gains no increase to their caster level. However, they can select a single passive ability from any school, gaining it as if they had specialized in that school.

In addition, a universalist can use their educated metamagic class feature with any spell rather than requiring the spell to be from a specialty school. All spells are treated as though they were the universalist’s specialty school for the purpose of their genius insight class feature.

This ability alters the arcane school and educated metamagic class features.

Metamagic Enhancement (Ex)

Whenever the universalist applies a metamagic feat to a spell, that spell’s DC and caster level are increased by 1.

This ability replaces the opposition breakthrough class feature.

Universal Talent (Ex)

At 12th level, the universalist increases the caster level of the first spell they cast each round by 1.

This ability replaces the secondary specialization class feature.
