- 10th Level. The amount of time you can hold your breath is doubled. You have resistance to fall damage.

- 15th Level. You do not fall prone when you become unconscious. The amount of time it takes you to finish a long rest is halved.

- 18th Level. You age at half the normal rate and remain virile until your last day. You have resistance against damage from non-magical attacks.

Starting at 7th level, you gain proficiency in Strength (Athletics) and Dexterity (Acrobatics). If another source gives you proficiency in either skill your proficiency is doubled for any ability check for that skill.

Additional Fighting Style[edit]

At 10th level, you can choose a second option from the Fighting Style class feature.

Starting at 15th level, your weapon attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 18-20.


At 18th level, you attain the pinnacle of resilience in battle. At the start of each of your turns, you regain hit points equal to 5 + your Constitution modifier if you have no more than half of your hit points left. You don't gain this benefit if you have 0 hit points.
