Type of Feat: Epic

Prerequisite: Wis 30, 21st level, Greater Wildshape IV or Wild Shape 5x/day

Required for: None

Specifics: The character may use Wild Shape to change into a Dragon Shape. The transformation has a duration of 1 hour/class level. The dragon shapes improve to ancient dragon shapes at character level 35

Use: Selected. After selecting, the character must choose what type of dragon they will appear as. Available types are Brass, Bronze, and Copper, each with appropriate breath-attack and elemental resistance.

In order to qualify for any epic shapes, the character must only take levels in Druid or Shifter

This form of shapeshifting cannot be dispelled.

Bonuses from armor, shield, helmet, boots, cloak, and jewelry merge into all three shapes. Base (non-magical) AC from shields merge but not from armor. Bracer/gauntlet/glove properties merge except for attack bonuses and bonus damage. Weapon properties do not merge on unarmed shapes. Off-hand weapon and ranged weapon properties never merge. Unlike in the original campaign, all AC bonuses merge, not just the highest.

Improved Critical: Unarmed functions using dragon claws, but Weapon Focus and Epic Weapon Focus: Unarmed do not
