Recently, we’ve seen several questions related to the topic of Arcane Spell Failure, and how to get around it. I have answered these (here and here), but neither question is directly about Arcane Spell Failure in general. At the request of some posters, I’m creating a question that directly addresses the issue.
So, the question:
What methods can one use to avoid or mitigate Arcane Spell Failure in Dungeons & Dragons 3.5?
