Arcane Blademaster (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Medium humanoid (any race), any alignment
Blade Channeling. Once per turn when the blademaster hits a target with a melee weapon attack, it can cast a cantrip which requires a spell attack roll against the target. This spell attack automatically hits.
Improved War Magic. When the blademaster uses an action to cast a spell, it may make one weapon attack as a bonus action.
Magic Resistance. The blademaster has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
Magic Weapons. The blademaster's weapon attacks are magical.
Superior Heavy Armor Master. While wearing heavy armor, the blademaster reduces any bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage taken from nonmagical weapons by 5.
Spellcasting. The arcane blademaster is a 20th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Intelligence (spell save DC 19, +11 to hit with spell attacks). The arcane blademaster has the following wizard spells prepared:
Cantrips (at will): acid splash, blade ward, fire bolt, shocking grasp, true strike
Multiattack. The arcane blademaster makes four attacks.
Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8 + 5) slashing damage, or 10 (1d10 + 5) slashing damage if used in two hands.
Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d8 + 1) piercing damage.
Years of practicing magic and combat are not enough to make an arcane blademaster. Only those rare individuals with a talent for both spells and swordplay have the potential, but even they undergo decades of study and training to truly be called a blademaster.
