Reason: This class gain class features in the same level it gains new spell slots, and at least one instance where the class gain two tier level features (gaining both a 6th level spell slot and a extra attack at 11th level). The armor class improvement with Audiomancer Armor breaks bound accuracy.

You have learned to bend the nature of sound and harmonies to your will and can channel powerful magic from this.


You know two cantrips of your choice from the bard spell list. You learn additional bard cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Audiomancer table.


At 1st level, you have a spellbook containing six 1st-level bard spells of your choice. Your spellbook is the repository of the bard spells you know, except your cantrips, which are fixed in your mind.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Audiomancer table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

You prepare the list of bard spells that are available for you to cast. To do so, choose a number of bard spells from your spellbook equal to your Charisma modifier + your Audiomancer level (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

For example, if you're a 3rd-level Audiomancer, you have four 1st-level and two 2nd-level spell slots. With a Charisma of 16, your list of prepared spells can include six spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination, chosen from your spellbook. If you prepare the 1st-level spell cure wounds, you can cast it using a 1st-level or a 2nd-level slot. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells.

You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of bard spells requires time spent studying your spellbook and memorizing the incantations and gestures you must make to cast the spell: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability

Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your bard spells. You use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a bard spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier

Sound Infusion

At 2nd level you may enhance your strikes on your foes with waves of sound causing your weapon to vibrate with great speed. Once per turn you may add 2d6 thunder damage to one melee attack this increases to 3d6 at 5th level, 4d6 at 10th, and 6d6 at 15th. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier. These uses return after a long rest.
