Prerequisites: Arcane caster level 5th, must have an arcane bond object.

Improved Arcane Bond Progression

Arcane Caster Level Arcane Bond Powers
5th The wizard may add his INT modifier as a bonus to his CMD vs. attempts to disarm or sunder his bonded object. Bond object grants +2 bonus on concentration checks made to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability when casting on the defensive or while grappled. This bonus stacks with the Combat Casting feat.
7th Bond object grants a +2 bonus on caster level checks made to overcome a creature’s spell resistance.This bonus stacks with the Spell Penetration feat. Bond object imparts magic protection to the wizard in the form of a +1 resistance bonus on all saving throws.This bonus increases by +1 for every 3 additional arcane caster levels, to a maximum of +5 at 19th level.
9th The wizard may cast one additional spell per day that he has in his spellbook and is capable of casting, even if the spell is not prepared. If the Wizard specializes in an arcane school, this second spell must come from that school. This additional spell otherwise follows all the rules of the standard arcane bond ability.
11th Bond object grants spell resistance, as the spell of the same name, to the wizard equal to 12 + arcane caster level.
