Breaking D&D 3.5: Item Familiars, Incantatrix, Elves, and Casting 25th Level Spells at 9th Level

The next time you build a wizard, consider building an elf Incantatrix with an item familiar. Why? Because 25th level spells, that’s why. Items Familiars, gained through a feat in Unearthed Arcana, are magic items bonded to you that can grant things like bonus XP, extra spells and actions, and a particularly exploitable bonus. Elves make great wizards already: it’s a favored class, many elves get a racial bonus to Intelligence, and it’s thematically classic. Incantatrix is an arcane prestige class from Forgotten Realms that focuses on metamagic, and the class is potentially very strong. Metamagic is quite balanced. Free metamagic is quite unbalanced. Though the class’s capstones are free metamagic twice per day and a reduction in the cost of all metamagic feats you use all the time, Incantatrix is very good much sooner than its last levels. Elves have a few racial substitution levels that are quite useful, and when combined with an Item Familiar, the puzzle pieces fit so well they break Incantatrix wide open. Let’s take a look at Lilly, a Wizard 5/Incantatrix 4, a level 9 mage who can cast 25th level spells.
