Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the eldritch priest.

Proficiencies: Eldritch priests gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.

Spellcasting: At each indicated level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a divine spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You also gain new invocations known, increased damage with eldritch blast, and an increase in invoker level at each level as if you had also gained a level in the warlock class. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one divine spellcasting class before becoming a eldritch priest, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Bonus Domain: Upon adopting the eldritch priest class, and again at 5th level, you gain access to a bonus domain of your choice. You may choose any domain made available by her deity, philosophy, or alignment. You gain the granted power associated with the domains you choose, and you can select the spells in that domain as your daily domain spells. If you don't have bonus domain spell slots, you do not gain any from this ability, but may add your domain spells to your spell list.

Eldritch Boost (Sp): Once per day, you can spend a free action to boost the caster level by +1 for each class level you possess. This boost lasts for one minute.

Wicked Blast (Sp): Whenever you use your eldritch blast ability, you can change your eldritch blast into a wicked blast. A wicked blast deals your normal eldritch blast damage as unholy damage, plus an extra 2d6 points of unholy damage for every odd level you have in eldritch priest. If your blast hits multiple targets (for example, the eldritch chain or eldritch cone blast shape invocations), each target takes the extra damage.

At 1st level, and again at 3rd and 5th level, you must permanently sacrifice 1 point of Constitution to the dark powers.
