I do not know what books this was originally from but on wizards website they have a pdf called new magic items, and some of these items grant feats.  (it appears 3.0 since it references polymorph self)

http://www.wizards.com/dnd/files/MagicItems.pdf

Mantle of Rage 6,000 gp.  Rage as a 1st level barbarian or if you have the rage feature rage 1 additional times per day (this is similar to the feat extra rage but 1/day instead of 2)
Reflex Weapon (equivalent to a +1), gain the benefits of combat reflexes.

There are other goodies such as scrying at will for only 42,000 gp but those aren't feat related

Thank you very much. It also appears that I missed not only that specific pdf in my archive, but also about 5 other related articles. I will be adding them to my master site archive.

Nimblestep (18310gp, LEoF p. 152) is a +1 Short Sword that grants Up the Walls and lets you focus as a move action (effectively Psionic Meditation).

Indeed... Two decent feats, one of which is basically a "must have" for most psionic characters.

Custom Item goes: 2 * 3 * (1800 or 2000) = 10 800 gp or 12 000 gp , for INT # of feats.
Cheap, and can be much cheaper.

Domination Domain Draught should be listed as Spell Focus (Enchantment) only.

Unless I'm mistaken, and a different Domination Domain grants Spell Focus (Any)?

Griffon lance of Goring grants Spirited Charge
Silverhelm of the Guardian grants Improved Initiative
Silver Sickles of Soranth (x2) grant Ambidexterity and Two-Weapon Fighting
Writhing Asps of Sss'thasine'ss (minor artifact) permanently gives Snake Blood

Grants = effects of
The artifact actually gives you the feat.

Nice find on Spirited Charge! It's expensive, but basically saves you three feats!

Special: A character who meets the prerequisites automatically gains Ritual Transference as a bonus feat after constructing five talismans of transference.

In short you can buy feats to reform / retrain / Dark Shuffle at the cost of 5 talismans.

Once you change the feat i can't see anything that prevents you from making another 5 talismans and regaining the feat.

In essence, for roughly 5 days labor, 500 gp, and 80xp; you can "buy" feat slots.

Not to blow everyone's mind here, but there is a 3.0 rule that states that items that give a benefit of a feat qualify you for having the feat for other prereq things [PrCs, other feats, etc]. It's late, so I'm not going to dig up which 3.0 book it was.

So unless a later book updated that, it still stands.

yeah, that's always been valid in 3.5. lose the object, lose access to the feat chain, however, but there's never been a problem the prereq thing.

Hi there. I made a list of similar things (using slightly different qualifying criteria I think) over on giantitp, which draws on your guide (credit is given, no worries). I considered copying it over here, but seeing how you're still active and this isn't really my "turf"; I thought it prudent to just link you to my list so that you can add stuff from it to yours if you feel like it. So yeah here ya go.  :)

No problem. Also, didn't include it on my  list, but you may want to: Fingerbone Necklace, Savage Species 56; Mounted Combat (goblinoid only).

I took a closer look at the Staff of Mighty Sweeping.  Its price is 28,600gp.  That's 10,000gp more than a +3 weapon, making the staff likely priced out as a double weapon, with 14,000gp for a +2 and Mighty Sweeping on each end.  That would place Mighty Sweeping at 6,000gp as a WSA.  Or, if it really was priced for a single end, then the price for just that enchantment would be 20,000gp.  I'd be inclined to believe the former is correct, given that the staff was MWed properly as a double weapon already.
What do I win?
An awesome-five for mentioning Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

Feats. Let's face it, feats are at a premium. Many characters never receive more than 7 feats in their career. Wizards get a few more. Fighters get even more, but they usually are hard pressed to do everything they want to, unless the follow one of the "optimized paths". Flaws might net you another one or two, but depend on a generous DM.

Typo? Shouldn't it be: Fighters get even more, but they usually are hard pressed to do everything they want to, unless they follow one of the "optimized paths".
