This is my first posted homebrew, but I think it turned out pretty well. Please post any problems or suggestions you have. The Illusionist is of course primarily a controller, but some of the powers have a bit of a leader-y feel to them.
The illusionist is a wizard archetype that seems to be ignored in the 4e PHB. There was a great Class Acts Article (http://wizards.com/dnd/files/dragon/364_ClassActs.pdf
) that I think is very useful, and almost a necessity if you want to use this PP. Unfortunately, it only goes up to Heroic Tier. I guess it's an opportunity for some more homebrewed powers.
“Don’t trust your eyes.”
Your mastery of Arcane power extends beyond fire and lightning. You have learned to warp your enemies’ minds to make them see what you want them to see. You control the battlefield through trickery and illusions. You can use your mastery of the mind to protect yourself and your allies, and to confuse your enemies.
Prerequisites: Wizard Class
Master Illusionist Path Features
Solid Will Action (11th Level)
: When you spend an action point to take an extra action, all attacks against you must hit your will defense as well as the target defense until the end of your next turn.
Practiced Illusion (11th Level)
: The first time in an encounter you sustain a power that has the charm, conjuration, or illusion keyword and can be sustained, you do not need to use an action to do so.
Mental Assault (16th Level)
: When you impose an effect that a save can end on a creature through a power that has the charm, conjuration, or illusion keyword, they take a -2 penalty to saving throws against it.
