Revenant[edit]

350px-Revenant_02_concept_art.jpg

Clad in ebony armor, a goliath raises his greatsword skywards. Closing his eyes, the blade is wreathed in eerie blue flame and he brings it down on a charging minotaur.

A human ties a blindfold around her head and kneels under a tree. She meditates in silence, whispering to the long-gone. She pauses for a moment before standing back up, disappearing in the shadows only to reappear behind a patrol of unsuspecting bandits.

A sylvari invokes the name of fallen angels. A shaft of radiance manifests as he pulls back his bowstring. Blessed by seraphs, the holy arrow finds its mark in the heart of a vampire.

Powerful spirits wander the land of the passed. Some call it the Spirit Realm, the Mists, or the Great Beyond. A dedicated few have learned to tap into the supernatural energy of these souls, and these mediums can invoke this power in the heat of battle to great effect. These spirit warriors are the Revenants who can, in a way, return the power of the fallen to the world of the Living.

To channel the Spirit Realm, a Revenant requires some sort of focus, called a Medium Focus. The most common of such focuses are blindfolds, so they may dull their earthly senses and more effectively connect to the spirits.

Class Features[edit]

Ethereal Sight[edit]

You can see into the Ethereal Plane, up to a distance of 30 feet.

Spiritual Vigor[edit]

Your attunement to the Spirit Realm straddles you on the line of life and death. When you would make a death saving throw, you can instead return to consciousness, bringing you to your feet (if you so choose), and regain a number of hit points equal to your Revenant level + your Wisdom modifier. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a long rest.

Fighting Style[edit]

At 2nd level, you adopt a style of fighting as your specialty. Choose one of the following options. You can’t take a Fighting Style option more than once, even if you later get to choose again.
•Defense
While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.
•Dueling
When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.
•Great Weapon Fighting
When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.
•Two-Weapon Fighting
When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability modifier to the damage of the second attack.
•Protection
When a creature you can see attacks a target other than you that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. You must be wielding a shield.

Spellcasting[edit]

By 2nd level, you have learned to draw on the supernatural magic of powerful spirits by channeling their souls through the Ethereal Plane, and through your exposure to the Spirit Realm.

Spell Slots: The Revenant table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these Revenant spells, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

Preparing and casting Spells: The Revenant table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of Revenant spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the Revenant spell list. When you do so, choose a number of Revenant spells equal to your Wisdom modifier + half your Revenant level, rounded down (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots. For example, if you are a 6th-level Revenant, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level spell slots. With an Wisdom of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st-level spell bane, you can cast it using a 1st-level or 2nd-level slot. Casting the spell doesn’t remove it from your list of prepared spells.

You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of Revenant spells requires time spent in meditation: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability: Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your Revenant spells, since the power of your magic relies on your focused connection to the Spirit Realm. You use your Wisdom whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a Revenant spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Spellcasting Focus: You can use an medium focus (found in chapter 5) as a spellcasting focus for your Revenant spells.

Spiritual Resistance[edit]

At 2nd level, your attunement to the Spirit Realm grants you resistance to necrotic damage.

Legendary Stance[edit]

At 3rd level, you can channel the energy of a very powerful entity in the Spirit Realm. Such spirits are usually those of the departed. When channeling the essence of such souls, their power flows through you, and you can adopt their stance in action. You can access the power of many Legendary Souls, such as the Dragon, Fiend, Shadow, Angel, Fey, and Dreadnaught stances. When choosing a stance, it will grant you features at the 3rd level, and again at the 7th, 15th, and 20th levels. Those features include stance spells. The stances are detailed at the end of the class description.

Stance Spells[edit]

Each stance has a list of associated spells. You gain access to these spells at the levels specified in the stance description. Once you gain access to an stance spell, you always have it prepared. Stance spells don’t count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain an stance spell that doesn’t appear on the Revenant spell list, the spell is nonetheless a Revenant spell for you.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Retribution[edit]

When you reach 6th level, you gain the ability to spitefully rebuke somebody who cuts you down. If an attacker you can see within 60 feet reduces you to 0 HP, you can immediately force them to make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failure, the attacker receives necrotic damage equal to half the damage dealt to you + half your revenant level (rounded down). On a success they instead take no damage. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Improved Spiritual Vigor[edit]

At 10th level, your attunement to the Spirit Realm strengthens further. You now regain use of the Spiritual Vigor feature after a short or long rest. When using Spiritual Vigor, allies within 20 feet gain temporary HP equal to half of the HP you regain (rounded down).

Invoke Courage[edit]

At 10th level, you cannot be frightened while you are conscious.

Purity of Spirit[edit]

At 11th level, your own soul has become more resilient. You have become immune to disease and poison.

Improved Ethereal Sight[edit]

At 14th level, you can see into the Ethereal Plane to a distance of 60 feet.

Invoke Fortitude[edit]

At 14th level, you can bolster your resolve with spiritual energy. When you take damage, you can use your reaction and reduce the damage by 1d10 + half your Revenant level (rounded down). You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum 1). You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Invoke Vengeance[edit]

At 18th level, once on your turn, you can deal additional damage on an attack you make equal to your Wisdom modifier. You can choose to use this feature before or after the damage roll, but before any effects of the roll are applied.


Legendary Stances[edit]

Dragon[edit]

You channel the spirit of a mighty fallen dragon, who lends their power to you from the Great Beyond.

For its action, it can use only the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If there’s nowhere to move, the creature can use the Dodge action.
