Magic Sets

The following section details some unique items in the world of Golarion that can have specific additional benefits when worn or wielded together. These item sets are collections of thematically aligned equipment whose magical properties can resonate with each other to make the set greater than the sum of its parts. Set bonuses are cumulative; for example, a character who wears four pieces of a set gains the listed benefits for having two, three, and four of the items. If a set modifies a class feature or ability, the wearer must have this class feature or ability to gain this benefit; for example, a character wearing at least three pieces of the Archmage’s Vestments must be able to cast 3rd-level spells to gain the additional 3rd-level spell slot.

While some GMs may introduce these set bonuses as a unique reward for players in their campaigns, any character can take the Collector’s Boon and Improved Collector’s Boon feats to access the benefits of these equipment sets. GMs can also increase the rarity of these items by waiving the requirement of having the Collector’s Boon and Improved Collector’s Boon feats and instead requiring the set to consist of specific pieces of equipment rather than any item of that type; for example, instead of any greater caster’s shield forming a piece of the Archmage’s Vestments, perhaps only Old Mage Jatembe’s shield, a greater caster’s shield crafted and used by the legendary Old Mage Jatembe himself, can be used to complete the set.

Beastmaster's Will

Source Chronicle of Legends pg. 25
At times, nature will grant its greatest champions gifts in the form of magical relics. Among these gifts, nature bestows Beastmaster’s Will to those who defend animal life.

Boots of the Cat: For every additional piece of this set you wear, you treat all falls as of they were 10 feet shorter.
Cloak of the Bat: For every two pieces of this set you wear, the duration you can use this cloak to fly at a given time increases by 1 minute.
Eyes of the Eagle: For every additional piece of this set you wear, the competence bonus of these lenses increases by 2.
Monkey Belt (Greater): While you are wearing all four pieces of this set, the enhancement bonus of this item increases by 2 and you gain a 20-foot climb speed.

Two-Item Benefit: When wearing at least two pieces of this set, you gain the wild empathy class feature, treating your character level as your druid level.
Three-Item Benefit: When wearing at least three pieces of this set, you can cast beast shape II once per day as a spell-like ability, treating your character level as your caster level.
Four-Item Benefit: When wearing all four pieces of this set, you gain the animal focus class feature with an effective hunter level equal to your character level – 4. You can only use this ability on yourself in 1-minute increments and not an any animal companion you may have. The animal focus class feature you gain from this equipment set is separate of that from any other source.
