Those magic item effects are amazing. "The item appears much larger than normal but functions as a normal sized version" is straight up "here's your anime bullshit stop asking"

Combine it with the last one, your eyes become twice as large as normal with modified irises.

The Buffeting Fists graft (MoE) is just about the best anti-archer defense. It give you Deflect Arrows for 13k, except that it works 1+Dex mod times per round. Even for characters without dex focuses, this approaches immunity, because it automatically blocks them, and you only need to spend a use if it would hit normally.

Nice for mundanes I suppose, but a Wandhilt & UMD can do better.
Quote from: Friendly Fire, EoE27
Abjuration
Level: Drd 4, Sor/Wiz 4, Stf 4; Components: V; Casting Time: 1 immediate action or 1 full round (see text); Range: Personal; Target: You; Duration: Instantaneous or 1 round/level (see text).
With an arcane word, you create a shimmering field of golden light around your body that pulses and wavers before vanishing.
Whenever you are the target of a ranged attack or a ranged touch attack, you can cast this spell to deflect the attack toward another target within 30 feet. Use the same attack roll. If the redirected attack hits the new target, resolve it as normal. Otherwise, the attack fails. If you extend the casting time to 1 full round, the duration changes from instantaneous to 1 round per caster level.

Unless you're shot more than once. It looks like the graft wins in that case.

Except that the full-round casting works against every ranged attack, including ranged touch attack spells, for its entire duration.  Spell wins in that instance.
What do I win?

It can be instant cast if needed which is a nice option for versatility. But it can be buffed up, or even Persisted, for multi-round protection. And instead of just wasting your opponent's offensive action, it turns it against them.

Metamagic Wandgrips from Complete Mage (add metamagic to a wand 3/day at the cost of an extra charge per spell leave increase) should work with Eternal Wands. The 2/day means only +1 (or the rare +0 metamagic) will work on them and you'll need three eternal wands to get the full uses of your grips, but there is plenty of buffs that become all day when hit with extend (any third level hour/day spell at minimum CL) that can go on an eternal wand.

Off the top of my head, Metamagic Wandgrip says it works like the Metamagic Spell Trigger Feat.

And Eternal Wands are not Spell Trigger items, they are Command.

Searching the forum for this feat name didn't bring up anything, so this might not actually be a repost!

In Dragon 315, there's a selection of regional feats for Greyhawk, which was expanded on in Dragon 319 (this latter being the source of the infamous Faerie Mysteries Initiate and Troll-Blooded). So I thought I'd go through 315's Greyhawk feats and see if anything jumped out at me.


Driftwalker

You aren't slowed by snowy terrain, and know how to disguise your movements in the snow.
Regions: Frost Barbarians, Ice Barbarians, Perrenland, Snow Barbarians, Stonehold, wild elf, wood elf.
Benefit: It costs you no squares of movement to move into a snow-covered or heavy snow-covered square. You leave no tracks in snowy terrain and cannot be tracked. You may choose to leave a trail if so inclined.
Normal: Moving into a snow-covered square costs 2 squares of movement. Moving into a square covered by heavy snow costs 4 squares of movement.


I mean, given the finite nature of most campaign planets this doesn't break the speed record or anything, but I can't think of many movement abilities that give quite this much value for investment. Sure, it's situational, but... holy shit.

(And yes, I'm aware that whoever wrote this probably didn't intend for it to do what it does.)

So basically, you have infinite free movement while walking on snow.   Damn.

I think the only thing about Mystery of Xen'drik that is worth considering is that for a prepared caster,
*Ahem* Echoing Spell.

I also love the extra Magic Item Effects, heck those count as a Fun Find on their own. Page 157, some of the effects are simply flavorful like your footsteps are on fire briefly. But there are some useful minor things like for +50gp your Cloak of Charisma also makes your eyes glow and you gain a +1 circumstantial bonus to Intimidate or adding a +2 bonus to Concentration Check when trying to use the Magical Item for +100gp. +50gp for +1 Cold damage with Unarmed Strike isn't bad either and adds the ability to cool your drink down by punching it. There is also a strange everyone within 10ft tastes honey and you gain a +1 moral bonus to Diplomacy one too, but hey it only costs 50gp and it can be added to any Magic Item so why not.
