Hunter’s Bane

Beginning 1st level, you have advantage on Wisdom (Survival) checks to track undead and fiends, as well as on Intelligence checks to recall information about them. Upon reaching 6th level, you have advantage on Wisdom (Insight) checks and Wisdom saving throws against undead and fiends.

Pact Magic

At 1st level, your arcane research and the magic bestowed on you by your angelic or devil patron have given you facility with spells.Cantrips

You know the eldritch blast cantrip and one other cantrip of your choice from the demon hunter spell list. If you already know the eldritch blast cantrip, you instead learn two other cantrips of your choice from the demon hunter spell list. You learn additional cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Demon Hunter table.Spell Slots

The Demon Hunter table shows how many spell slots you have. The table also shows what the level of those slots is; all of your spell slots are the same level. To cast one of your demon hunter spells of 1st level or higher, you must expend a spell slot. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a short or long rest.

For example, when you are 5th level, you have two 2nd-level spell slots. To cast the 1st-level spell hellish rebuke, you must spend one of those slots, and you cast it as a 2nd-level spell.Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher

At 1st level, you know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the demon hunter spell list.

The Spells Known column of the Demon Hunter table shows when you learn more demon hunter spells of your choice of 1st level and higher. A spell you choose must be of a level no higher than what’s shown in the table’s Slot Level column for your level. When you reach 9th level, for example, you learn a new demon hunter spell, which can be 1st, 2nd, or 3rd level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the demon hunter spells you know and replace it with another spell from the demon hunter spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.Spellcasting Ability

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

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

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifierSpellcasting Focus

You can use an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your demon hunter spells.

Coalesced Power

Beginning at 2nd level, when you cast eldritch blast, you may add your Wisdom modifier to the damage it deals on a hit if you do not already add an ability modifier to the damage already.

Preferred Weapons

Beginning at 2nd level, you have trained for years with two weapons of your choice that have become your preferred weapons. Choose a martial melee weapon and a martial ranged weapon. You have a +2 bonus to damage rolls with these weapons. The amount of bonus damage increases as you gain levels, as shown in the Bonus Weapon Damage column of the Demon Hunter table.

At 10th level, you may also choose another martial melee weapon and martial ranged weapon to also gain this benefit.

Hunter Order

Beginning at 3rd level, you choose a subclass that you emulate in the exercise of your hunter abilities: Deathblade, Power Fiend, or Arcane Devastator, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your subclass choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at levels 7th, 14th, and 18th.

Ability Score Improvement

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Gilded Eyes

Beginning at 9th level, you gain darkvision for 60 feet. If you already have darkvision, the range is instead increased by an additional 30 feet.

Sheer Skill

Starting at 11th level, before the results of a roll have been announced, you may add 1d6 to any roll you make. You may not use Sheer Skill more than once on any roll you make. You may use this feature an amount of times equal to your proficiency bonus and you regain all uses of this feature after you finish a short or long rest.

Combat Style

Beginning at 15th level, you may choose a combat style that emphasizes your specialty in combat.Dexterous Evader

Through practice, you have learned how to anticipate upcoming attacks in order to dodge them. You may take a specialized Dodge action as a bonus action, which gives you the effects of the Dodge action and advantage on Dexterity saving throws until the start of your next turn. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your half your Dexterity modifier rounded up (minimum of one), and you regain all uses of this feature after you finish a long rest.Precision Caster

You have focused all your training efforts into learning how to properly connect with your spells and cantrips. You have a +1 bonus to your spell attack rolls and spell save DC.Specialized Hunter

You have spent ages learning how to effectively kill your hated enemies. You have advantage on your first weapon attack roll each turn when targeting a demon or undead, and deal additional damage equal to your proficiency bonus on that attack.Speedy Hands

You have trained your hands at the point of mastery at handling of crossbows. You ignore the loading property of crossbows with which you are proficient and being within 5 feet of a hostile creature doesn’t impose disadvantage on your ranged attack rolls with crossbows.


Beginning at 20th level, you attain the pinnacle of resilience on battle. If you have no more than half your hit points left, as a bonus action, you can spend up to two hit dice to heal yourself for an amount of hit points equal to amount rolled + your Constitution modifier for each hit die rolled. You can not use this feature if you have 0 hit points.


Deathblade demon hunters who adhere to this path are no strangers to the grimmer parts of their job as demon hunters. Due to the strain of the job, some of these individuals lose themselves over time, becoming more and more immersed with death as time goes by. In exchange, they receive the powers of the grim art of death, allowing them to quickly bring death to others while forestalling the death of their friends.

Death’s Door

Beginning at 3rd level, you have accepted death as a natural part of life for all creatures except yourself. If you succeed on a death saving throw, you may regain 1 hit point. Once you use this ability, you can not use it again until you finish a long rest.

Fleeting Step

Beginning at 3rd level, your speed and evasiveness have reached new levels. Your base walking speed is increased by 5 feet, and may take the Disengage action as a bonus action.

Grim Sage

At 7th level, your experience instills you with what you need to act cunning in combat. You may add your Wisdom modifier to your initiative rolls.

Death’s Doctor

Beginning at 7th level, your knowledge of death limits exemplified. You have advantage on Wisdom (Medicine) checks to stabilize creatures and you may attempt to stabilize a creature as a bonus action.

Quick Dash

Beginning at 14th level, you know how to quickly bound towards other creatures and make a quick strike against them. As a bonus action, you may move 15 feet in a direction and make a weapon attack against a creature within range. You may use this feature a number of times equal to your proficiency bonus and you regain all uses of this feature at the end of a long rest.

Control Over Death

Beginning at 18th level, you have learned how to effectively stop death. As an action, you may bind a creature’s soul to your current plane as long as the creature is within 60ft of you. You may choose to target a living creature or you may target a creature that has not been dead for more than 1 round(6 seconds). If the creature was living, until the start of your next turn, that creature can not be killed or knocked unconscious. If the target would take damage that knocks them unconscious, they instead remain conscious at 1 hit point. If the target was recently slain, you return that creature to life with 50 hit points and with 0 failed death saving throws. Once you use this feature, you may not use it again until you finish a long rest.

Power Fiend

Some demon hunters believe that without sufficient power and durability they stand no chance against the very demons they swore to slay. As such, these individuals choose to become Power Fiends allowing them to harness power akin to that of the very creatures they swore to destroy. However, no matter the threats they face, from rampaging demons and hordes of elementals to towering giants and terrifying dragons, Power Fiends will face them head on to act as the bulwark between civilization and the terrors of the Abyss.

Hardened Body

Beginning at 3rd level, you body becomes hardened to the effects of battle. Bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage that you take is reduced by 2 (damage reduction is before resistance). This amount increases by 1 at 5th level, 11th level, and 17th level.


Beginning at 3rd level, you have advantage on Constitution saving throws against extreme weather (DMG p. 110) gain a bonus to Constitution checks made to maintain a spell equal to your Wisdom modifier.

Protection Pact

Beginning at 7th level, your pact with the fiendish entity now grants you some degree of protection. You are now considered to be under the effects of nondetection at all times and may not be moved or teleported by a magical effect without your consent.


Beginning at 14th level, you have learned how to put your full might behind your attacks. As a bonus action you may enter a state of all out aggression for 1 minute. Your first weapon attack that hits each turn deals additional damage equal to your proficiency bonus. However, while in this state, you have disadvantage on Wisdom and Intelligence saving throws. Once you use this feature, you may not use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Supreme Fortitude

Beginning at 18th level, after being hit by an attack and taking damage, you may make a reaction to make it so that no damage is done. You may use this feature twice and you regain all uses of this feature after you finish a long rest.

Arcane Devastator

Arcane Devastators could simply be described as those who want an abundance of magical power to destroy their enemies, but that would be a bit too simple. Although they can not cast as many spells as traditional spellcasters, these individuals still try their hardest to manipulate magic in whatever way they can to their betterment. In the end though, how each Arcane Devastator deals with their limitations on magic, is what determines who succeeds and who fails.

Flexible Spell List

Beginning at 3rd level, whenever you finish a long rest, you can choose one of the demon hunter spells you know and replace it with another spell from the demon hunter spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

Well Learned

Beginning at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in the History or Arcana skill, and if you already have proficiency in it, your proficiency bonus is doubled for any check you make using it.

Magic Guidance

Beginning at 3rd level, when you make an ability check or a saving throw and have disadvantage on the roll, you can cancel the disadvantage for that roll. Alternatively, before you make an ability check or a saving throw, you may add your proficiency bonus to the roll regardless of whether you are proficiency in the check or not. Once you use this feature, you may not use it again until you finish a long rest.

Enhanced Spellcasting

Beginning at 7th level, when you cast a spell that deals damage, you deal 1 additional point of damage per damage die. This bonus damage is the same damage type as the damage from the spell.

Well of Magic

Beginning at 14th level, you have learned how to reach into your inner most depths of your pact for more magic. You gain an additional demon hunter spell slot.

Magic Pact

Beginning at 18th level, your pact can now further enhance your spellcasting capabilities. You may cast any 5th level or lower spell from the demon hunter spell list once. Once you use this feature, you may not use it again until you finish a long rest.
