Quick Study

Benefit(s): You can prepare a spell in place of an existing spell by expending 1 point from your arcane reservoir. Using this ability is a full-round action that provokes an attack of opportunity. You must be able to reference your spellbook when using this ability. The spell prepared must be of the same level as the spell being replaced.

School Understanding

Benefit(s): Choose an arcane school. If you have the wizardry pedagogy, you must choose the same school.

You gain one ability from the chosen arcane school as though you were a 1st-level wizard, using your Charisma modifier in place of your Intelligence modifier for this ability.

The ability must be one gained at 1st level and is limited in its use per day to 3 + the your Charisma modifier. As a swift action, you can expend 1 point from your arcane reservoir and treat your arcanist level as your wizard level for the purpose of using this ability for a number of rounds equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1). During this time, you also gain use of the other ability gained at 1st level for your selected school.

If you already have an arcane school from another class (or gain one later), taking this exploit instead allows your arcanist levels to stack with the levels of the class that granted the arcane school when determining the powers and abilities of your arcane school.
