We welcome adventurers of all sizes. Welcome to my spellbook. We are grateful you clicked on the 44th episode of our feat series. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at a very interesting one, today we’re going to taking a look at dnd5e revenant blade feat this particular feat will be found in the wayfinders guide to eberron and honestly i’ve never looked at it before now. To be honest i wasn’t even sure if it existed until today. It is very useful and can be used in certain builds. This will all be covered in the future. If you don’t have the wayfinders guide to eberron i would certainly recommend getting it. There’s one of my favorite of all time races in there and i’m sure it’s a great read for all of you as well. With all that hype out of the way let’s take a look at the description to know we’re talking about.
First and foremost this is our first feat where there’s actually two prerequisites to it. What kind of sort i’ll explain a little bit later. First, you must be an Elf. Fairly self-explanatory we’ve dealt feats like that in the past namely elven accuracy. This one is unique because it uses two thirds of the power, which is a feat. You will need a revenant scimitar with two blades. Your creation must be approved by your DM. These are the steps:
Prerequisite: ELF* revenant double-bladed scimitar (or AL Ternative)
You’re descended form the master of a double-blade, and of course some of such mastery have been passed on to you. However, you will enjoy the following benefits.
- You can increase your Strength score and Dexterity up to 1 but not more than 20,
- Your two hands would hold a double-bladed, bladed sword. You’d gain +1 AC.
- You can use a double-bladed Scimitar to achieve finesse.
- On your turn when you use a bonus action to make a melee attack with the blades at the opposite end of the weapon, that weapon’s damage die for this attack increases to 2d4, instead of 1d4.
- This feat allows you to use the weapon benefits to equip a Revenant Scimitar equipped with double blades and any other weapon.
Wow…alright lot to unpack there. Let’s take it down to the walkthrough section and break this down just a little bit more.
You also get a bonus one to strength, dexterity, and flexibility even though the blade can be used alone. This is understandable as the feat is meant to create a finesse weapon. Your dexterity and strategies can alter the outcome. However while you’re a holding a revenant double bladed scimitar or other revenant double bladed weapon. The bonus action is that the second knife does 2d4 when it attacks instead of 1d4.
Your damage minotaur, which is basically your damage to the environment, will be damaged. This is great news. Alright, let’s get into my personal thoughts on it.
I think it’s fantastic. Which party is the biggest beneficiary? The hex knife warrior would either be them or the Rogue, I think. Actually as well as the eldritch knight those would probably be the main three reason being they’re likely to have either the extremely high dex or strength you can pick up either or with this weapon.
There are also paladins that can be added to the list. This makes them especially elves. Their charisma is my favorite! The biggest winner hands-down though would be the hex blade warlock between this thirsty blade and a ton of other ways to modify their melee attacks i feel like they’d probably gain the most benefit from this. Also that plus one when the AC would really help them out as well and yeah you know i would consider this if you’re just an elf in general or if you’re a melee character in general who happens to be an elf.
We’d love to hear from you guys if there are any other uses for this feat. Anyways you’d like to see you use any combo ideas or any comments please take it down to the comment section below.
