Keen Mind DnD 5E Feat

We welcome adventurers from all walks! We are glad you have found our website and we thank you for reading our 28th episode of our feats series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at the good memory feat. Today we’re gonna be checking out keen mind 5e feat. This utility-based feat can be found in the players’ manual.

Assuming, you’re a individual that is notorious for forgetting things, my goodness this would be a lifesaver for you. With that out of the way let’s take a quick look at the description here, so you know we’re talking about.


However, it is worth noting that this feat does not require any prerequisites. Because it is pretty good for almost every class at least one part of it is and i’ll get to that here in a bit. This is the description.

To have an advantage in tracking direction, time and details with remarkable precision, you can use your dnd5e keen brain feat. These benefits are also yours.

  • Your Intelligence score can be increased up to 20 points
  • It’s easy to identify which direction is north.
  • Keep track of how many hours remain before the next sunrise/sunset.
  • Any information that you have heard or seen in the past month will be available for recall.

That’s some cool stuff on. let’s take a look at the walkthrough and break that down just a little bit.


The +12 intelligence is pretty obvious what it is, it’s super useful for wizards not really useful for anyone else unless you got a certain build going on and then you get you’re basically turned into a human alarm clock which is super great. Notice that it doesn’t specify whether or not you need to be able to see the sun so even from the underdark you can tell what time and date is on the surface which is super good super useful.

If you plan on large-scale invasions, it is important to plan your timing. This turns you into an omniscient compass with many benefits. Especially, if you’re in a confusing maze or anything that nature she’ll be able to find your way with no problem.

And the most important part of this whole feat is the ability to recall up to a month’s worth of memories. It’s easy. It’s all there, waiting for you to recite verbatim.

Now let’s take a look at my personal thoughts on it.


This system’s ability to recall past months of memories is one of its most important features. This makes your DM feel like a deus pro machina. It can make your DM feel like you have recovered from a statement if they bring up a plot point even if it isn’t very important to the party.

It can be done in reverse. You can ask your DM like do i know anything about that because as a person doesn’t but forge is a cleric or as a character would and then they’d have to fill you in. Modifiers can be used by any spellcasting-based classes that use intelligences. However, it all depends on the person who plays.
