Initiate of the Golden Wyrm

Children of the wyrms, arise. In your flames the fate of the world rests.

Prerequesites: Sorcerer, Dragon Magic Class Feature.

I originally intended this for Wizards but realized, early in the creative process, that it fit sorcerer fluff better. Would it be balanced to make all references to Charisma be Int or Cha and open it to all arcane characters instead of just Dragon Sorcerers? Also would it be a good idea even if it is balanced?

The blood of gold dragons pounds in your veins. You are descended from Io via his greatest children, and you have as your birthright a portion of their power and their strength. You wield this power, using it to divide enemies so that you and your allies can drive deep into their hearts.

Initiate of the Golden Wyrm Path Features

Wings of Flames (11th level): When you spend an action point you also sprout wings of flames which push creatures within close burst 1 up to 2 squares as a free action.

Scales of Gold (11th level): The first time you become bloodied during an encounter you gain a +1 bonus to all defenses until the end of the encounter.

Heart of Draconic Power (16th level): You gain a +2 on saving throws.

: I like giving them flight, but Iím not sure if this is a good way to do it in 4e (4e and flight always seemed hard to mix for me). Is this too strong? Iím worried about the balance of the entire class but this part worries me the most.

Golden Tomb of Flames Initiate of the Golden Wyrm Attack 20
