What is, in your opinion, the best low level skill/perk?
Low level is 5 and lower.

Well~ as someone who played a lot of Wu Jen in 3.5, every third level they get a "spell secret" which means one of their spells is permanently modified by one of the following metamagic feats: Enlarge Spell, Extend Spell, Still Spell, or Silent Spell; at the cost of adding one taboo that if they break they can't cast for the rest of the day. Unless you have an asshole DM, a lot of low level taboos are easy to keep like "don't wear orange" or "makes a daily offering to spirits from local foliage" so they'll usually be ones that almost never come up. Given they learn Fireball at level 3 and can instantly have it be enlarged right off the bat, permanently, it pretty fun. Tho I was more a silent spell type myself.

On the othe rhand if you just let us get to sixth level it would be the Wu Jen's Elemental Mastery. See, at that level the Wu Jen picks an element from the ones their spellbook is divided into (earth, fire, metal, water, and wood) and whenever they cast a spell of that element afterward their caster level goes up by two! Oh that helped with a lot of skill checks back when I was a kid...

This would be the Animal devotion feat.
Frustrate your DM by giving your lvl 1 character access to flight. Play a human cleric with extra turning, so you get to fly more often.

The elements you mentioned are the five Chinese elements.

Deaf oracles in Pathfinder get silent spell for free from the start, and it's glorious. Some spells only have a verbal component, so with free silent spell, magic just happens and nobody can prove it was you.

Spark isn't usually all that amazing, but if things just "spontaneously" ignite, it can be very distracting. :P

And of course later (after level 5, so it doesn't count for this poll) you can cast Blindness with no components, which is when you become the scariest thing around.

I think the Oracle is my favorite d20 non-WotC class.

Improved Initiative.

Who doesn't like making it more likely they'll go first in combat?
