Animal Sphere

You can speak with and befriend animals with ease.

Granted Powers: You gain Channel Endurance as a bonus feat, even if you do not meet the prerequisites. You also add Fly (Dex) and Knowledge (nature) (Int) to your list of class skills. In addition, whenever you cast a spell that grants you a fly speed, your maneuverability increases by one step (up to perfect).

Sphere Powers: You can select your sphere powers from the powers and revelations granted by the following sources.
  • Domain/Subdomain: Animal/Feather, Fur, Insects
  • Blessing: Animal
  • Inquisition: Persistence
  • Mystery: Lunar (form of the beast and gift of claw and horn revelations only), Nature (friend to the animals, natural divination, nature’s whispers, and speak with animals revelations only)

You can also choose the following sphere power.
  • Beastskin (Su): Your skin toughens and you gain a +2 enhancement bonus to your natural armor bonus. This enhancement bonus increases by 1 for every four caster levels beyond above 7th, to a maximum of +5 at 19th level. You must be at least 7th level to select this power. Using this power expends one use of your divine reservoir.
