Seaclaimed Pirate (5e Class)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Free actions don't really exist in 5e. This class has numerous additional ASI's other than the standard, and still gains other features at those levels. This class provides immunity to two different damage types(cold, and lightning), and heals you if you take damage from them. Thought Shield then grants resistance to psychic damage, and makes those using it take damage. Create Thrall has no saving throw? It also seems you could control an unlimited number of creatures with this. Whole class needs a run through.

Seaclaimed Pirate[edit]

Summary[edit]

This classes is loosely based on Davy Jones from the pirates of the Caribbean as i read a BBEG davy Jones concept and decided it would make an interesting class build. in essence this class is a warlock/fighter with the intentions to encourage players to grapple in 5e as it is almost pointless by adding incentives such as extra damage and debuffs for the grappled creature.
