Improved CounterspellModifier

You are skilled at countering the spells of others using similar spells.

Benefit: When counterspelling, you may use a spell of the same school that is one or more spell levels higher than the target spell.

Essentia: You can Recover a Spell Slots Used or Spell Cast of up to level 1 / Essentia (max up to the Spell level you have countered) using the energy of the spell you succesfully countered.

Normal: Without this feat, you may counter a spell only with the same spell or with a spell specifically designated as countering the target spell and you dont gain any energy from countering that spell.
