During combat, you can use a bonus action to make a Intelligence (Investigation) check, resisted by the Charisma (Deception) of the target. If you win the context, you learn the creatures AC and current hit points. Once you use this feature on a creature, you can't use it again on the same creature for the next 24 hours.
Starting at 2nd level, you have developed a series of battle tricks and gambits to gain advantage on fights. As a bonus action on your turn, you can activate one of your tactics. Once you use a war tactic, you can't use it again until you finish a short rest or a long rest. You can use this feature twice between rests at 7th level and three times at 15th level.
