Revenant Blade 5E Feat

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes. Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on our 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 dnd 5e 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 very cool and super useful for certain builds. But i will get into all of that later. 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.

Description

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 and foremost you gotta be an elf. Fairly self-explanatory we’ve dealt feats like that in the past namely elven accuracy.

However where this one differs is to take advantage of two thirds and a feat. You have to have a revenant double bladed scimitar. You can also make your own revenant weapon but your DM has to approve it naturally. The description reads as followed.

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 with this feat you shall get the below given advantages:

  • You can increase your Dexterity or Strength score by 1, almost to a maximum of 20.
  • While wielding a double-bladed weapon with its two hands, you would gain +1 AC.
  • Actually a double-bladed scimitar has a finesse property when you wield it.
  • 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.
  • To gain weapon benefits of this feat equipped a revenant double bladed scimitar or other create your own similar 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. In an case if you would also like to check out double-bladed scimitar 5e feat then click on the link.

Walkthrough

So even without the blade equipped just on its own this feat gives you a plus one to dex or strength. Which makes logical sense because this whole feat is being designed and aimed towards a finesse weapon so you can use your strategies or your dex as the modifier which you know makes logical sense.

However while you’re a holding a revenant double bladed scimitar or other revenant double bladed weapon. You get a plus one to AC which can make or break a lot of encounters and as your bonus action when you go to attack with that second blade it does 2d4 instead of 1d4.

Essentially damaging your damage minotaur essentially doubling your damage minimum and maximum which is very very good stuff for sure. Alright, let’s get into my personal thoughts on it. By the way do you like to know more about elven accuracy 5e

Thoughts

I think this is honestly fantastic. Who benefits most from it? you know i want to say the hex blade warlock would either them or you know the rogue might as well. 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.

They also make particularly elves, you can actually put paladins on the list too. I just because of their charisma right! 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.

Conclusion
