High elves are fairly ubiquitous across Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, which makes their race specific feat, Fey Teleportation, an interesting choice for characters looking for more movement options (and poise)

What Is Fey Teleportation 5e?
With the release of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, we saw the first batch of feats designed for specific races. These feats offer a better glimpse of how these fantasy races operate, but are they good?
We’ll be covering the Fey Teleportation feat today, which is the racial feat for high elves. Let’s dig in!
How Does Fey Teleportation Work?
You can pick up this special racial feat as long as you’re a High Elf. With it, you get three benefits:
- You increase your INT or CHA by 1 to a max of 20.
- You learn the misty step spell and can cast it once between rests without needing to use a spell slot.
- You also learn the Sylvan language, meaning you can speak, write, and read it.
Is Fey Teleportation Good?
In our 5e Feats Tier List, Fey Teleportation was given a B Tier rating, making it a niche feat that can improve some builds in D&D 5e.
Misty Step is a fantastic spell. If your spell list doesn’t have it, this is a solid way to get it. Builds that will particularly love this are Bards, Paladins, and Artificers. All classes that don’t innately have access to Misty Step but will benefit from the +1 to CHA or INT should consider Fey Teleportation.
If you are interested in this feat Fey Touched (A Tier) is a better version, if you don’t care about learning Sylvan.
Fey Teleportation 5e Interactions
While most feats can bring up some interesting scenarios, Fey Teleportation doesn’t. The only strange interaction I could find is that wizards cannot copy this spell into their spellbook because it isn’t in written form. However, other caster classes can use it all they want.
While racial feats are really interesting to spice up your character, they directly compete with a lot of build variety. Because you’re locked into that race, you have to hope that both the feat and subclass you choose also work well with that feat.
