Investigator Feats


Flexible Studies Feat 1


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

You've collected a cross-section of information on various disciplines you can refer to when preparing for various tasks. During your daily preparations, you can cram on a certain subject to become temporarily trained in one skill of your choice. This proficiency lasts until you prepare again. As this proficiency increase is temporary, you can't use it as a prerequisite for a skill increase or permanent character option like a feat.

Known Weaknesses Feat 1


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

Whenever you Devise a Strategem, you can also attempt a check to Recall Knowledge as part of that action. If you critically succeed at the Recall Knowledge check, you notice a weakness and gain a +1 circumstance bonus to your attack roll from Devise a Stratagem.

If you immediately convey this information to your allies as part of the check, each ally gains a +1 circumstance bonus to their next attack roll against the subject, as long as their attack is made before the beginning of your next turn.

Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

You've mastered combat practices that let you get up close and bring down perpetrators alive.

You can use your Intelligence modifier on attack rolls when you Devise a Strategem if you're using a weapon of the club group in one hand (like a club, staff, or sap), in addition to the usual weapons, and those Strikes qualify for your Strategic Strike.

Additionally, you can make any of your Strikes nonlethal without taking the normal -2 penalty.

That's Odd Feat 1


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

When you enter a new location, such as a room or corridor, you immediately notice one thing out of the ordinary. The GM determines what it is, or whether there's nothing reasonable to pick up, skipping obvious clues that can be easily noticed without a check or specifically looking for them. You learn only that an area or object is suspicious, but not why it's suspicious.

For example, if you entered a study with a large bloodstain on the ground, the bloodstain is so obviously suspicious it's evident to you already, so the GM might note that there's something suspicious about the desk drawer instead. You would then need to investigate the drawer further to find out what specifically is out of the ordinary. That's Odd doesn't reveal whether creatures are suspicious.

You don't typically get any benefit when you leave and come back to a place, though if a major change has happened there and time has passed, the GM might determine that you do.

You know how to calculatedly manipulate joints and body weight. In addition to using Devise a Strategem to modify a Strike, you can use it to modify a Disarm, Grapple, Shove, or Trip attempt, substituting your Devise a Stratagem roll for the Athletics check. You must apply the substitution to the first eligible attack you make, whether it's a Strike or one of the Athletics actions.

You can also use your Intelligence modifier instead of Strength for the Athletics check when you substitute your Devise a Stratagem roll, unless you're using a weapon for the maneuver and the weapon doesn't fit the restrictions for using Intelligence with a stratagem.

Red Herring Feat 2


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

You have a keen sense for avoiding spurious lines of inquiry. When you Pursue a Lead, the GM tells you if the lead you chose is inconsequential.

For example, if you found a splatter of gray mud on the wall, thought it was suspicious, and Pursued it as a Lead, the GM would tell you if there was no greater mystery related to it.

When the GM tells you a lead is inconsequential, you can decline to Pursue the Lead, keeping any leads you were already pursuing. You still can't use Pursue a Lead again for 10 minutes, as normal.

Solid Lead Feat 2


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

Sometimes your case splinters into smaller mysteries, but you never lose sight of the big picture. Once per day when you give up on the subject of a lead due to using Pursue a Lead again, you can designate the lead you stopped pursuing as your solid lead for the day. Even though you stopped following the solid lead, you can change back to your solid lead any number of times by using a single action, which has the concentrate trait. Doing so ends one of your current leads as normal.

During your next daily preparations, you can maintain your solid lead or you can remove it; removing it allows you to designate a new solid lead later that day.

Strategic Assessment Feat 4


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

You learn your foes' strengths and weaknesses by watching them move. When you critically hit a creature with a Strike on which you substituted your attack roll due to Devising a Strategem, the GM chooses one of the following pieces of information about the enemy to tell you.

  • Which of the enemy's weaknesses is highest
  • Which of the enemy's resistances is highest
  • Which of the enemy's saving throws is lowest
  • One immunity the enemy has

Connect The Dots Feat 6


Uncommon​Concentrate​Investigator​Secret​
Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

Requirements You must be pursuing at least two leads.


Ephemeral connections between people, places, and concepts are invisible to most, but seeing them is your stock and trade.

You spend 10 minutes considering two different leads you're pursuing. You then attempt a check to investigate how connected the two are.

Unless the GM determines otherwise, this is a Crafting check if they're both items or a Society check for other combinations of leads. If any subjects are creatures, this check usually uses the highest DC among their Deception and Will DCs. If no subjects are creatures, but at least one is an item, the DC is usually a hard DC for the level of the highest-level item. If neither case applies, the DC is usually a hard expert or hard master DC (22 or 32).

Once you try to Connect the Dots between two particular leads, you can never try to Connect the Dots between those same leads again unless the GM allows it after you've learned a substantial amount of new information.


Critical Success The GM tells you how connected the two leads

are to one another: highly connected, somewhat connected,

tangentially connected, or not connected. The GM also tells

you one specific way in which they're connected, if they are.

Success As critical success, but the GM doesn't tell you a

specific connection.

Failure Your results are inconclusive.

Critical Failure You misconstrue the information. As success,

but the GM provides an incorrect degree of connection.

Something of uncommon rarity requires special training or comes from a particular culture or part of the world.

Defy Fey Feat 6


Rare​Gunslinger​Investigator​Ranger​
Source Pathfinder Lost Omens: Impossible Lands
Prerequisites Greenwatch Initiate

You are keen to the wiles of the fey and can usually shake off their magic. Whenever you fail, but don't critically fail, a save against a spell with a duration of at least 1 round cast by a fey creature, you can attempt a second save against the original DC at the start of your next turn to end any lingering effects the spell might have. This can end persistent damage caused by a spell but can't reverse any effects that have been resolved already (such as damage dealt when the spell was cast).

Frequency once per day


You carefully consider your case and narrow down some of the details. When you Pursue a Lead, you can spend 10 minutes instead of 1 minute to ask two questions of the GM as you complete the activity.

The GM must answer truthfully with "yes" or "no," though if the answer would be misleading or have no practical application to your investigation the GM can answer "immaterial." You can't use Whodunnit? more than once for the same lead, even across different days.

Your questions must come from the following list, applying to either the creature or the clue you found:

  • Was the clue left by a creature trait? (Choose a creature trait such as humanoid, undead, or dwarf; this trait must be accurate as of the time the clue was left.)
  • Was this clue left within the last hour?

Just One More Thing One ActionFeat 10


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

Requirements Your most recent action was to Feint, Request, or Demoralize, and you failed but didn't critically fail.


After your attempt to influence someone goes poorly, you add another bit of information or ask a pointed question, possibly salvaging your previous attempt.

Reroll the failed check and use the new result. If the target of the failed check is the subject of a lead you're pursuing, double your bonus from Pursue a Lead on the rerolled check. That creature is temporarily immune to Just One More Thing for 1 day.

You can also use this action if you failed, but didn't critically fail, at a check to Lie, Gather Information, Make an Impression, or Coerce. In this case, rather than spending 1 action, adding Just One More Thing takes you half the amount of time you initially spent on the check, to a minimum of 1 more round.

You analyze whether it's likely to come to pass, learning whether it's highly likely, somewhat likely, somewhat unlikely, or highly unlikely. You also gain a piece of advice suggesting a course of action you or your allies could take that might make the chosen event more or less likely, whichever you prefer.

The GM determines the likeliness of the event and the piece of advice you learn.

Implausible Purchase (Investigator) Feat 16


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

It seems impossible, but you've analyzed every angle and are able to just keep pulling out exactly the item you need, even in far-flung locations.

Reconstruct The Scene Feat 16


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

You spend 1 minute surveying a small location (such as a single room) to get an impression of events that occurred there in the last day. This involves moving about the area and studying footprints, the placement of objects, spilled drinks or blood, and so forth.

You get an indistinct mental impression of significant events that happened there. This gives you clues and details of the past, including the overall events and their time frame, but it's not a perfect record. This also isn't enough to identify who was involved in these events if you weren't already aware the person was there.

As determined by the GM, you also pick out various seemingly small details that could serve as important clues, like a memorable weapon someone used for a murder or the type of cloak someone wore when passing through.

Lead Investigator Feat 18


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide
Prerequisites Clue Them All In

You spend 1 minute briefing up to four allies about one lead you're pursuing.

Those allies gain the same circumstance bonus you do from Pursue a Lead to checks to investigate that lead. This bonus lasts until you cease pursing that lead or for 1 day, whichever comes first. This doesn't confer any other benefits of pursuing a lead, such as adding the circumstance bonus to your saves with Detective's Readiness.

Trickster's Ace ReactionFeat 18


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

Trigger You specify the trigger when you make your daily preparations (see Requirements below).

Requirements When you make your daily preparations, you must specify a trigger for this reaction using the same restrictions as the triggers for the Ready action. You also choose a single spell from the arcane, divine, occult, or primal list of 4th level or lower. The spell can't have a cost, nor can its casting time be more than 10 minutes. The spell must be able to target a single creature, and you must be a valid target for it.


Whether from jury-rigged magic items, deduction from the study of magical interactions, or other means, you have a contingency in your back pocket for desperate situations.

When the trigger occurs, you cause the spell to come into effect. The spell targets only you, no matter how many creatures it would affect normally. If you define particularly complicated conditions, as determined by the GM, the trigger might fail. Once the contingency is triggered, the spell is expended until your next daily preparations.

All the Time in the World Three ActionsFeat 20


Uncommon​Investigator​
Source Pathfinder #168: King of the Mountain

Frequency once per hour


Your firsthand experience of the subjective nature of time and space has given you new observational insights. Your mind processes information so quickly that time appears to stop for all creatures but you. You can take up to 9 actions in 3 sets of up to 3 actions each. During this time, you can use purely mental and observational abilities such as Recall Knowledge, Seek, and Devise a Stratagem, and you can use an action to move a mental projection of yourself to a location within a 60- foot radius to observe objects more closely and from different angles, though you can't affect your surroundings in any way (for instance, you could move your mental projection more closely to a distant door to read a minute inscription on its handle, but you could not open it to observe the other side). When the duration elapses, time resumes its normal flow.

Everyone's A Suspect Feat 20


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide

You are so suspicious of everyone you meet that you keep mental notes on how to defeat them all-even your own allies.

After interacting with a creature for at least 1 minute, you automatically Pursue a Lead with that creature as the subject. You can have any number of such leads at any given time, and when you Pursue a Lead again, you don't give up any of these automatic subjects.

Just The Facts Feat 20


Source Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide
Prerequisites Thorough Research

You fundamentally understand everything to the point where your research can't possibly be wrong.

You are permanently Quickened and can use the extra action to Recall Knowledge.

Your checks to Recall Knowledge are no longer secret. When you Recall Knowledge, you use the outcome for one degree of success better than the result of your check, and if an effect (such as Dubious Knowledge) would give you inaccurate information from your Recall Knowledge check, you know which information is inaccurate.

When one of your allies Recalls Knowledge and gains false information, you also know that information is inaccurate if they share it with you.
