Consume Magic Items

Consume Magic Items (Su): You can consume the power of potions, scrolls, staves, and wands, using them to fill your arcane reservoir. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1). Using this ability is a move action that provokes an attack of opportunity. When using this exploit, you add a number of points to your arcane reservoir equal to 1/2 the level of the spell contained in the item (0-level and 1st-level spells do not recharge the arcanist's arcane reservoir). If used on a potion or scroll, the item is destroyed. If used on a wand, the wand loses 5 charges; if it has fewer than 5 charges, the wand is destroyed and you gain no benefit. If used on a staff, it loses 1 charge and you gain a number of points to your arcane reservoir equal to the level of the highest-level spell the staff can cast using only 1 charge; if the staff has no spells that require only 1 charge, you cannot consume that staff's magic. No more than 1 charge can be drawn from a staff each day in this way. Points gained in excess of the your reservoir's maximum are lost.
