Arcane shot is a ranger that is blessed by the world giving them the ability to summon a bounded weapon in which they can channel there magical energy through by doing this they can also empower the shots that come out of there bounded weapon to cause a variety of effects


Introduction[edit]

You are a ranger that was blessed by the world giving you the ability to shape your magic in to the form of a weapon

Arcane pool[edit]

At 3rd level you gain a pool of arcana, which allow you to create a variety of magical effects. the number of arcane points you have is equal to your ranger level to a maximum of 10. You regain all spent points when you finish a long rest

Arcane empowerment[edit]

At 3rd level, when you gain this feature, you learn two Arcane empowerment options of your choice. By spending a point from your arcane pool once per turn, when you fire an shot from your bound weapon as part of the Attack action, you can apply one of your Arcane empowerment options to that shot. You decide to use the option when the shot hits a creature, unless the option doesn't involve an attack roll. You gain an additional Arcane Shot option of your choice when you reach certain levels in this class: 7th, 10th, 15th, and 18th level. Each option also improves when you become an 18th-level ranger

Arcane archer[edit]

At 3rd level, You can use your action to create a Bound weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this ranged weapon takes each time you create it (the bound weapon does not come with ammo). You are proficient with it while you wield it. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to non-magical attacks and damage. Your bound weapon disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapon (no action required), or if you die.

You can transform one magic weapon into your bound weapon by performing a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest. You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extra-dimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your bound weapon thereafter. You can't affect an artifact or a sentient weapon in this way. The weapon ceases being your bound weapon if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extra-dimensional space when the bond breaks.

At 5th level your bound weapon can now fire bolts of force dealing 2d6 force damage these shot can not be used with the arcane empowerment feature. The force damage increases to 4d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.
