Mage Knight: Machination
Prerequisite: Magus level 4, Technomantic Staff OR Golem Familiar
All variable, numeric effects of a cantrip modified by this feat are maximized. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected, nor are cantrips without random variables. An empowered, maximized cantrip gains the separate benefits of each feat: the maximum result plus one-half the normally rolled result.
If the magus casting the maximized cantrip is bonded with a technomantic staff, the maximized cantrip takes a -3 caster level penalty, as if the staff had granted a caster level bonus on a cantrip in the round prior to the one during which the maximized cantrip is cast.
If the magus casting the maximized cantrip is bonded with a golem familiar, the golem takes a -3 penalty on all attacks, special attacks requiring a roll, saving throws, and skill checks from the end of the round during which the maximized cantrip is cast until the beginning of the magus’ next turn.
