  • No favored-class bonus (half-elf can have two favored classes)
  • Combine BAB modifiers for all held class levels
  • Add base saving throws from both classes to your base saving throw
  • Add skill ranks based on class level being added
  • Use character's total levels for Ability Score and Feat progression
