As you progress further in Solasta: Crown of the Magister, your party of created characters will become stronger until you reach the level 10 cap. You shouldn’t have a problem as there are plenty of encounters and sidequests that give you experience points. Moreover, once you hit levels 4 and 8, you’ll be presented with a choice: increase your ability scores (attributes) or select a bonus feat. Your decision here will tend to impact just how viable your character will be in the long run. In any case, here’s our guide to help you select the best feats as you level up in Solasta: Crown of the Magister.

Solasta: Crown of the Magister guide – The best feats to choose as you level up
The feats in Solasta: Crown of the Magister will be visible for everyone, but there are some restrictions and caveats:
- Depending on the class or skills you’ve picked, taking certain feats would be redundant due to having a similar or partial function. There’s also a small icon that’d warn you about this.
- Some feats would be locked if a character is unable to perform an action (i.e., spellcasting if you don’t have any spells learned), they don’t have a particular proficiency, or if they don’t meet the minimum required stat.
Note: If you’re just creating a new character, you can click on the “At Higher Levels” button when selecting a class. It’d show you the perks and features that get unlocked as you level up. After you’ve finished character creation, you can also select a character and click “level up” to see the selections presented to you as you progress. This is mostly to keep you informed (i.e., seeing the subclasses and feats). Just try it on a dummy character since the main campaign in Solasta: Crown of the Magister won’t actually let you start with characters that have been pre-leveled.

Remember, you have to consider which bonus feats will actually be helpful for a particular character or your party. For instance, if you like to craft enchanted/primed items with the Manacalon Rosary, then you’ll want Master Enchanter.
Likewise, it’s better to max out a Shock Arcanist Wizard’s INT than choose a feat (unless you really want to get Flawless Concentration). Meanwhile, an Oath of Tirmar Paladin would be better off taking a bonus feat like Follow Up Strike. You can even empower this extra attack with radiant damage from Smite. Lastly, classes that often use ranged weapon attacks like the Ranger and Rogue would benefit from Uncanny Accuracy due to being able to ignore enemies that are partially in cover.
