    Default Arcane Gunslinger

    Hey Guys, I thought About this Concept of an Arcane Gunslinger and just put Matthew Mercers Gunslinger and The Arcane Archer Together and Wanted to know, What you would Change/add.

    Firearm Proficiency
    Starting when you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with firearms, allowing you to add your proficiency bonus to attacks made with firearms.

    Gunsmith
    Upon choosing this archetype at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with Tinkerís Tools. You may use them to craft ammunition at half the cost, repair damaged firearms, or even draft and create new ones (DMís discretion). Some extremely experimental and intricate firearms are only available through crafting.

    Firearm Properties
    Firearms are a new and volatile technology, and as such bring their own unique set of weapon properties. Some properties are followed by a number, and this number signifies an element of that property (outlined below). These properties replace the optional ones presented in the Dungeon Masterís Guide. Firearms are ranged weapons.
    Reload. The weapon can be fired a number of times equal to its Reload score before you must spend 1 attack or 1 action to reload. You must have one free hand to reload a firearm.

    Misfire. Whenever you make an attack roll with a firearm, and the dice roll is equal to or lower than the weaponís Misfire score, the weapon misfires. The attack misses, and the weapon cannot be used again until you spend an action to try and repair it. To repair your firearm, you must make a successful Tinkerís Tools check (DC equal to 8 + misfire score). If your check fails, the weapon is broken and must be mended out of combat at a quarter of the cost of the firearm. Creatures who use a firearm without being proficient increase the weaponís misfire score by 1.

    Explosive. Upon a hit, everything within 5 ft of the target must make a Dexterity saving throw (DC equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity modifier) or suffer 1d8 fire damage. If the weapon misses, the ammunition fails to detonate, or bounces away harmlessly before doing so.

    Ammunition
    All firearms require ammunition to make an attack, and due to their rare nature, ammunition may be near impossible to find or purchase. However, if materials are gathered, you can craft ammunition yourself using your Tinkerís Tools at half the cost. Each firearm uses its own unique ammunition and is generally sold or crafted in batches listed below next to the price.

    Firearms
    Name Cost Ammo Damage Weight Range Properties
    Palm Pistol 50g 2g (20) 1d8 piercing 1 lb. (40/160) Light, reload 1, misfire 1
    Pistol 150g 4g (20) 1d10 piercing 3 lb. (60/240) Reload 4, misfire 1
    Musket 300g 5g (20) 1d12 piercing 10 lb. (120/480) Two-handed, reload 1, misfire 2
    Pepperbox 250g 4g (20) 1d10 piercing 5 lb. (80/320) Reload 6, misfire 2
    Blunderbuss 300g 5g (5) 2d8 piercing 10 lb. (15/60) Reload 1, misfire 2
    Bad News Crafted 10g (5) 2d12 piercing 25 lb. (200/800) Two-handed, misfire 3, explosive
    Hand Mortar Crafted 10g (1) 2d8 fire 10 lb. (30/60) Reload 1, misfire 3, explosive

    Adept Marksman
    When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you learn to perform powerful trick shots to disable or damage your opponents using your firearms.

    Arcane Shot. You learn two Arcane shots of your choice, which are detailed under ďArcane ShotsĒ below. Many maneuvers enhance an attack in some way. Each use of a Arcane shot must be declared before the attack roll is made. You can use only one Arcane shot per attack.
    You learn an additional Arcane shot of your choice at 7th, 10th, 15th, and 18th level. Each time you learn a new Arcane shot, you can also replace one Arcane shot you know with a different one.

    Grit. You gain a number of grit points equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of 1). You regain 1 expended grit point each time you roll a 20 on the d20 roll for an attack with a firearm, or deal a killing blow with a firearm to a creature of significant threat (DMís discretion). You regain all expended grit points after a short or long rest.
    Saving Throws. Some of your Arcane shots require your targets to make a saving throw to resist the trick shotís effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

    Arcane Shot save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity modifier

    Magic Bullet
    At 7th level, you gain the ability to infuse Bullets with magic. Whenever you fire a nonmagical Bullet from a Gun, you can make it magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. The magic fades from the Bullet immediately after it hits or misses its target.

    Curving Shot
    At 7th level, you learn how to direct an errant Bullet toward a new target. When you make an attack roll with a magic Bullet and miss, you can use a bonus action to reroll the attack roll against a different target within 60 feet of the original target.

    Rapid Repair
    Upon reaching 10th level, you learn how to quickly attempt to fix a jammed gun. You can spend a grit point to attempt to repair a misfired (but not broken) firearm as a bonus action.

    Lightning Reload
    Starting at 15th level, you can reload any firearm as a bonus action.

    Vicious Intent
    At 18th level, your firearm attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 19-20, and you regain a grit point on a roll of 19 or 20 on a d20 attack roll.

    Hemorrhaging Critical
    Upon reaching 18th level, whenever you score a critical hit on an attack with a firearm, the target additionally suffers half of the damage from the attack at the end of its next turn.

    Arcane Shot Options
    The Arcane Shot feature lets you choose options for it at certain levels. The options are presented here in alphabetical order. They are all magical effects, and each one is associated with one of the schools of magic.

    Banishing Arrow. You use abjuration magic to try to temporarily banish your target to a harmless location in the Feywild. The creature hit by the arrow must also succeed on a Charisma saving throw or be banished. While banished in this way, its speed is 0, and it is incapacitated. At the end of its next turn, the target reappears in the space it vacated or in the nearest unoccupied space if that space is occupied.

    After you reach 18th level in this class, a target also takes 2d6 force damage when the arrow hits it.

    Beguiling Arrow. Your enchantment magic causes this arrow to temporarily beguile its target. The creature hit by the arrow takes an extra 2d6 psychic damage, and choose one of your allies within 30 feet of the target. The target must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw, or it is charmed by the chosen ally until the start of your next turn. This effect ends early if the chosen ally attacks the charmed target, deals damage to it, or forces it to make a saving throw.

    The psychic damage increases to 4d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.

    Bursting Arrow. You imbue your arrow with force energy drawn from the school of evocation. The arrow detonates after your attack. Immediately after the arrow hits the creature, the target and all other creatures within 10 feet of it take 2d6 force damage each.

    The force damage increases to 4d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.

    Enfeebling Arrow. You weave necromantic magic into your arrow. The creature hit by the arrow takes an extra 2d6 necrotic damage. The target must also succeed on a Constitution saving throw, or the damage dealt by its weapon attacks is halved until the start of your next turn.

    The necrotic damage increases to 4d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.

    Grasping Arrow. When this arrow strikes its target, conjuration magic creates grasping, poisonous brambles, which wrap around the target. The creature hit by the arrow takes an extra 2d6 poison damage, its speed is reduced by 10 feet, and it takes 2d6 slashing damage the first time on each turn it moves 1 foot or more without teleporting. The target or any creature that can reach it can use its action to remove the brambles with a successful Strength (Athletics) check against your Arcane Shot save DC. Otherwise, the brambles last for 1 minute or until you use this option again.

    The poison damage and slashing damage both increase to 4d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.

    Piercing Arrow. You use transmutation magic to give your arrow an ethereal quality. When you use this option, you donít make an attack roll for the attack. Instead, the arrow fires forward in a line, which is 1 foot wide and 30 feet long, before disappearing. The arrow passes harmlessly through objects, ignoring cover. Each creature in that line must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes damage as if it were hit by the arrow, plus an extra 1d6 piercing damage. On a successful save, a target takes half as much damage.

    The piercing damage increases to 2d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.

    Seeking Arrow. Using divination magic, you grant your arrow the ability to seek out your target, allowing the arrow to curve and twist its path in search of its prey. When you use this option, you donít make an attack roll for the attack. Instead, choose one creature you have seen in the past minute. The arrow flies toward that creature, moving around corners if necessary and ignoring three-quarters cover and half cover. If the target is within the weaponís range and there is a path large enough for the arrow to travel to the target, the target must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, it takes damage as if it were hit by the arrow, plus an extra 1d6 force damage, and you learn the targetís current location. On a successful save, the target takes half as much damage, and you donít learn its location.

    The force damage increases to 2d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.

    Shadow Arrow. You weave illusion magic into your arrow, causing it to occlude your foeís vision with shadows. The creature hit by the arrow takes an extra 2d6 psychic damage, and it must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or be unable to see anything farther than 5 feet away until the start of your next turn.

    The psychic damage increases to 4d6 when you reach 18th level in this class.
