Occultists can select occult feats as bonus feats. Members of other classes can take these feats as long as they meet the prerequisites.
These feats all possess strong ties to spirits, and the spirit realm in which they dwell, and are best suited for Occultists or characters who practice pact magic, though that shouldn’t stop players from taking these feats so long as they justify their choice to the GM’s satisfaction.
You can exclude creatures from your powers.
Prerequisites: Bind spirit class feature, Cha 13.
Benefit: Whenever you activate a major granted ability that targets an area of effect, you may exclude a number of creatures from the granted ability’s effects equal to your Charisma modifier. Those targets are not affected by your granted ability.
Special: This feat functions like the Selective Channeling feat if the granted ability functions as the channel energy class feature. This feat functions as Selective Spell if the granted ability functions as a spell. You must possess 10 ranks in Spellcraft to use this feat as Selective Spell.
