Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Eldritch Knight.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Proficient only with the Eldrich Blade, and Medium Armor.
Eldritch Blade (Ex): The Eldritch Knight's soul forged through planes of infernal flames, and solidified eldritch magic. The knight may summon this blade as a quick action begining at first level, and the base damage for this blade is equal to that of a great sword of the knights size(i.e. 2d6 for a medium character). The blade is considered magical when overcoming damage barriers.
Keen Eldritch Blade (Ex): The Eldritch Knight's blade becomes keen doubling it's critical range.
Eldritch Cloak (Ex): The Eldritch Knight is able to hold an cloak of Eldritch Magic at will around themselves granting their Cha modifier to their AC. This begins at first level.
Eldritch Blast (Sp): Eldritch Blast; An Eldritch Knight can focus their soul in the form of a magical spell like blast. This blast uses the Cha modifier as a ranged touch attack to both hit chance and damage. This ability becomes available at second level and damage increases ever even level thereafter.
Empower Eldritch Blade (Sp):
Enhanced Eldritch Cloak (Ex): Your Eldritch cloak starting at level ten now gains the ability to provide a DR of 10/Cold Iron.
An ex- Eldritch Knight looses all access to his or her Eldritch Blade, and the demon they've stricken a deal with for power will come to collect their mortal soul.
