Pact Magic

1st-level Warlock feature
Your arcane research and the magic bestowed on you by your patron have given you facility with spells.

Cantrips

You know two cantrips of your choice from the Warlock Spell List. You learn additional warlock cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Warlock table.

Mana

The Warlock table shows how much mana you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend mana from your mana pool. You regain all expended mana when you finish a short or long rest. The mana costs for spells can be found on the mana cost table.

Spells Known and Reserved

At 1st level, you know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the warlock spell list.

The Spells Known column of the Warlock table shows when you learn more warlock spells of your choice. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you can cast.

You can keep an additional number of spells equal to your Warlock level + your Intelligence modifier as reserved spells. These spells are ones you are familiar with, but cannot readily cast. Whenever you finish a long rest, you can choose one known spell from this class and replace it with one of your reserved spells over the course of 10 minutes, provided they are of the same spell level and are both on the Warlock spell list. The reserved spell becomes a known spell, and the known spell is added to your reserved spells.

As a part of a long rest, you can try to familiarize yourself with a spell on the Warlock spell list if it is of a spell level you can cast and you saw a creature cast it since your last long rest, if you use a magic item which can cast the spell, or if you can be taught by a creature with the spell known or prepared. You must succeed on an Arcana check using your spellcasting stat with DC equal to 15 + the spell's level to add the spell to your reserved spells.

If you would reserve a spell, and are already at your maximum number of spells you can have reserved, you must replace one of your existing reserved spells.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the Warlock spells you know and replace it with another spell from the Warlock spell list, which also must be of a level for which you can cast. You may add the spell you replaced to your reserved spells.

Spellcasting Ability

Choose Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma to be your spellcasting ability. Once you make this choice, you cannot change it. You use the chosen ability whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use the chosen ability modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a Warlock spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your chosen ability modifier
Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your chosen ability modifier

Spellcasting Focus

You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your warlock spells.

Eldritch Blast

1st-level Warlock feature
At 1st level you learn to use your patron’s power as a weapon, blasting enemies with an eldritch force that defies even the laws of magic. Choose one of the following features.

Eldritch Disruption

You can use an action to strike a creature you can see within 60 feet with a reality-distorting curse, blending pain both mental and physical. The target makes a Wisdom saving throw against your spell save DC, taking 1d12 force damage on a failure, or half damage on a success.

Eldritch Ray

You can use an action to create a deadly beam that strikes a creature within 120 feet. Make a ranged spell attack against the creature, dealing 1d10 force damage on a hit.

Eldritch Smite

Once per turn when you hit a creature with a melee weapon attack, you can ravage your target with an outburst of magic, causing the weapon attack to deal an extra 1d8 force damage.

Eldritch Whip

You can use an action to thrash a creature with a scintillating tendril of arcane force. Make a melee spell attack against a creature within 15 feet, dealing 1d6 force damage on a hit. At the end of your turn you gain a number of temporary hit points equal to half the damage you dealt to hostile creatures with Eldritch Whip this turn (minimum 1).

Eldritch Invocations

2nd-level Warlock feature
In your study of occult lore, you have unearthed eldritch invocations, fragments of forbidden knowledge that imbue you with an abiding magical ability. At 2nd level, you gain two eldritch invocations of your choice. Your invocation options are detailed on the Eldritch Invocations page. When you gain warlock levels, you gain additional invocations of your choice, as shown in the Invocations Known column of the Warlock table.

Whenever you learn these Eldritch invocations, you may choose an Arcanum Esoterica instead. These Warlock-only options are detailed at the bottom of this page.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the invocations you know and replace it with another invocation that you could learn at that level. If an eldritch invocation has prerequisites, you must meet them to learn it. You can learn the invocation at the same time that you meet its prerequisites. A level prerequisite refers to your level in this class.

Pact Boon

3rd-level Warlock feature
At 3rd level, the entity to which you are beholden provides a more durable and lasting blessing. Choose one of the following features.

Pact of the Blade

You can use your action to create a pact weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this melee weapon takes each time you create it. You are proficient with it while you wield it and you can use your spellcasting ability for attack and damage rolls with it. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Your pact weapon disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapon (no action required), or if you die.

You can transform one magic weapon into your pact weapon by performing a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest.

You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your pact weapon thereafter. The weapon ceases being your pact weapon if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks.

At higher levels, this boon improves in the following ways:

  • 21st Level: Otherworldly Cut. You gain proficiency in one of the following combat traditions: Deadeye, Determination, Duelist, or Templar. When you gain this feature, you learn one 1st and 2nd-degree maneuver from the chosen combat tradition. You can use these maneuvers with mana from your Pact Magic feature as long as you attack with your pact weapon.
  • 25th Level: Darkest Cut. You may make one attack with your pact weapon as a Bonus Action. If the attack hits, you Mark the creature for 1 minute. If a hostile creature marked with this ability is reduced to 0 hit points, you regain 2 mana from your Pact Magic feature.

Pact of the Cards

Your patron grants you a deck of divination cards, a bag of mystic knucklebones, or another similar divining tool. This tool is a spellcasting focus for you, and you know the augury spell and can cast it as a ritual. The spell doesn’t count against your number of spells known.

Additionally, when you make an Intelligence check, you can consult your divining tool to tap into the knowledge of your patron to gain advantage. You can use this ability a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus, and all expended uses are restored when you finish a long rest.

If you lose your divining tool, you can perform a 1-hour ceremony to receive a replacement from your patron. The ceremony can be performed during a short or long rest, and it destroys the previous tool. The divination tool disappears in a flash of light when you die.

Pact of the Chain

You learn the find familiar spell and can cast it as a ritual. The spell doesn’t count against your number of spells known. When you cast the spell, you can choose one of the normal forms for your familiar or one of the following special forms: imp, pseudodragon, quasit, sprite, or other Tiny creature of CR 1 or less. Unlike most familiars, yours is not subject to the Companions section of the Resurrection rules.

When you take the Attack action, you can forgo one of your own attacks to allow your familiar to make one attack of its own with its reaction. Your familiars attacks use your spell attack modifier, and can deliver the damage from Eldritch Smite.

Finally, when you use your action to use Eldritch Disruption, Eldritch Ray, or Eldritch Whip (or an Eldritch Invocation with one of them as a prerequisite,) your familiar can deliver the ability as if it had used it, using your spellcasting ability modifier. Your familiar must be within 100 feet of you, and it must use its reaction to deliver the ability when you use it.

At higher levels, this boon improves in the following ways:

  • 21st Level: Health Link. When you or your familiar takes damage while within 120 feet of each other, you can use your Reaction to cause the other to take the damage instead. If you have the Investment of the Chain Master invocation, your familiar gains resistance to any damage it takes. Additionally, your familiar gains additional hit points equal to your warlock level.
  • 25th Level: Chain Mastery. As long as your familiar is alive, you gain all of its traits, regardless of your distance from it. Additionally, your familiar adds your Warlock spellcasting ability modifier to its Armor Class.

Pact of the Talisman

Your patron gives you an amulet, a talisman that can aid the wearer when the need is great. When the wearer fails an ability check, they can add a d4 to the roll, potentially turning the roll into a success. Once the talisman has turned a number of rolls equal to your proficiency bonus into a success, it cannot do so again until you finish a long rest.

If you lose the talisman, you can perform a 1-hour ceremony to receive a replacement from your patron. This ceremony can be performed during a short or long rest, and it destroys the previous amulet. The talisman turns to ash when you die.

Pact of the Tome

Aware of your drive for knowledge, you awaken to find a grimoire left in your pack by your patron: a Book of Shadows. Choose three cantrips. While the book is in your possession, you know these cantrips and they are treated as warlock spells. They don’t count against your number of cantrips known.

If you lose your Book of Shadows, you can perform a 1 hour ceremony to receive a replacement from your patron. This ceremony destroys the previous book. The book is collected by your patron when you die.

Ability Score Improvement

4th-level Warlock feature
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.

Additionally, whenever you gain this feature, you can replace one of your skill proficiencies with a skill proficiency offered by this class at 1st level. The proficiency you replace does not need to be from this class.

Lastly, you may do one of the following, representing a change of focus in your occult studies:

If this change makes you ineligible for any of your Eldritch Invocations, you must also replace them now, choosing invocations for which you qualify.

Extra Blast

5th-level Warlock feature
Beginning at 5th level, your Eldritch Blast becomes more vicious.

Contact Patron

11th-level Warlock feature
In the past, you have usually contacted your patron through intermediaries. Now you can communicate directly; you know the contact other plane spell, and can cast it to contact your patron once without spending mana. When you use the spell in this way, you automatically succeed on the spell's saving throw. Once you cast the spell with this feature, you can't do so again until you finish a long rest.

Highest Arcanum

20th-level Warlock feature
At 20th level, you have unlocked the greatest secrets from your patron. Choose one of the following.

Eldritch Master

You can draw on your inner reserve of mystical power while entreating your patron to regain your expended magic. You can spend 1 minute entreating your patron for aid to regain all your expended mana from your Pact Magic feature. Once you do, you must finish a long rest before you can do so again.

Planeswalker

Lastly, if you have the Eldritch Smite feature, ranged Pact Weapons you wield can use Eldritch Smite.

Investment of the Chain Master
