Holy Nimbus[edit]

When you are hit with a melee attack, you can use your reaction to deal 2 radiant damage to the creature that hit you. This increases to 5 radiant damage when you reach 8th level in this class.

Exalted Armor[edit]

If you are not wearing armor, your AC is equal to 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Charisma modifier.

Divine Focus[edit]

You can use a holy symbol as a divine focus for casting the orison trait cantrips, and for any spells granted to you by the sainted class.

Exalted Resistance[edit]

At 2nd level you gain resistance to cold and lightning damage. At 6th level you gain resistance to fire and acid damage.

Saintly Aura[edit]

From 3rd level onwards, you can use your bonus action to emit a saintly aura that lasts for 1 minute. While your aura is active you and friendly creatures within 10 feet of you benefit from the effects of protection from evil and good.

You regain the use of this feature when you finish a long rest.

Ability Score Increase[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.


At 5th level, you are always under the effect of the tongues spell.


From 7th level onwards, you can cast the bless spell up to 3 times. When you finish a long rest, you regain your uses of this spell.

Improved Holy Touch[edit]

Starting at 9th level, the radiant damage you deal with your holy touch racial feature is doubled against fiends and undead.

In addition, when you make a melee weapon attack you can choose to make it a melee spell attack. If you do so, you add your Charisma modifier to the damage roll instead of the ability modifier you normally use.

Sanctified Body[edit]

At 10th level, your physical form is saturated with holy power. At the start of each of your turns, if you are poisoned or petrified, you can make a Charisma saving throw to end that condition. The DC is the same as that of the effect that caused the condition, or 15 otherwise.
