Class Features

+1 Level Arcane Spellcasting: A high Wizard continues training in his previous arcane class(es), thus, when a new high Wizard level is gained, the character gains new spells per day and increased caster level as if he had also gained a level in an arcane spellcasting class he belonged to before he added the prestige class. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (improved familiar progression, for example). This essentially means that he adds the level of high Wizard to the level of some other arcane spellcasting class the character has, then determines spells per day and caster level accordingly. If a character had more than one arcane spellcasting class before he became a high Wizard, he must decide to which class he adds each level of high Wizard for purposes of determining spells per day and caster level when he adds the new level.

High Arcana: each level of high Wizard opens up a number of possible secrets the character may learn. Each level the character chooses from the following list (some may require additional skills or feats). Rather than the secrets costing him permanent spell power as a high sorcererís often do, high wizardís often require them to sacrifice additional spells with each use. Which is the more efficient method is perhaps an argument the high sorcerers and high wizards will never resolve.
