 Class Features
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: An Ivalice Dancer is proficient with light armor and gains proficiency with ceremonial weapons likes Scarves, Fans, Bracers, and also gains the use of the Katana. She is not, however, able to use shields of any kind.
Provocative: The Ivalice Dancer gains her CHA bonus to AC, as long as she is unarmored and not encumbered by a heavy load. At 5th level the bonus to AC increases to CHA mod and a half, and CHA mod 2x at 10th level.
Spells: An Ivalice Dancer draws her spells from the Cleric spell list. Unlike the Cleric, an Ivalice Dancer does take restrictions on what spells she may learn due to alignment, but may only know one of each cure or inflict spell (meaning you cant have cure light wounds AND inflict light wounds, you must take one or the other). To know or to cast a spell, she must have a CHA mod equal to 10 + the spells level. The number of spells she knows for each level of spell is 1/2 spells per day, +2.
Dancing: A Ivalice Dancer has the ability to curse or debilitate her foes with a variety of dances. To resist the effects of her dances, the opponent must succeed a FOR save DC (10 + the Ivalice Dancer's level + the Ivalice Dancer's CHA mod) or be affected as normal. At 1st level and every 3rd level afterwards, the Ivalice Dancer learns certain dances. Dancing requires a movement action, and provokes attacks of opportunity. An Ivalice Dancer can move while dancing, but moves at a -10 to movement speed. Each Dance may only be performed once per round.
