Bladesinger Class

A bladesinger travels with companions in the Underdark...

A master of warfare, each bladesinger has trained for decades to gain the skill of the Bladesong; a subtle, unpredictable fighting style meant to focus upon defense while allowing the opponent to expose themselves to attacks.

You have trained in the ancient Elven arts of warfare and magic, eventually learning to blend these arts into a deadly melee form. Learning the Bladesong is an extremely demanding pursuit, requiring very discrete tactics and precise movements in battle. This path will lead you to greater honors within Elven society, where master Bladesingers display their achievement by creating their own personalized elven chain mail armor and weaponry.
