You may spend an Action you can use one of your hit dice to gain that many Carnage Points back. Anytime you take or deal 10 or more in damage you automatically gain 1 Carnage Point once per turn this increases to 2 Carnage Points by 7th level and to 3 by level 13th. The amount of the Carnage Points increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the Carnage Points column of the Doomslayer table.

This armor does not weigh anything and you can choose the appearance of it.
At 2nd level, you now have a favored weapon named: The Crucible. A weapon forged in the flames of Hell in which you use to unleash your fury. This weapon can change it’s form into any melee weapon that you have seen and you can use a magical melee weapon and copy this effect and requirements but in the doing of this the magical melee weapon is consumed until you can replace the effect with another one. In addition you may never be disarmed of this weapon as it is bound to only you. If it ever breaks you can spend 4 Carnage Points to conjure it in your hands fully repaired. You may expend 4 Carnage Points to add an extra 1d4 in fire damage for 1 min this extra damage goes up to 1d6 at 6th, 1d8 at 9th and this extra damage now ignores enemy resistances and immunity's, 1d10 at 14th.

The attack uses your Strength or Dexterity modifier plus your proficiency bonus. On a hit, you deal 1d10 + your Strength or Dexterity modifier in Bludgeoning damage. The damage increases to 2d10 at 5th level, 3d10 at 11th level and 4d10 at 17th level. you may use this feature equal to half of your Constitution modifier (minimum of one) before finishing a long rest.

At 6th level your hatred can push yourself beyond your normal limits for a moment. On your turn, you can take one additional Action. Once you use this feature, you must finish a short or long rest before you can use it again.
At 7th level, Before you use the Attack action using The Crucible you may use 8 Carnage Points to automatically make one of your attacks a critical hit. You may only use that feature once per turn. This increases to twice per turn when you reach 11th level in this class.
