There is a tutorial on the Central (coordinating) Wikia that will step you through more of the things you can do. Wiki allow for rather complicated formatting. It can look overwhelming when you begin, but don't let it worry you. Just start with the basics... enter some text, and learn the other pieces as you go. Your content contributions are welcome and important. The wiki is a collaborative effort and others can help with formatting and other improvements.

Jack of All Trades[edit]

Starting at 1st level, you can add half your proficiency bonus, rounded down, to any ability check you make that doesn’t already include your proficiency bonus.


You have stumbled upon how to tap into magic. As your levels increase you gain greater understanding of how to do this.


You know two cantrips of your choice from all spell lists, list. You learn additional cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Bard table.

Spell Slots[edit]

The Jack-of-all-trades table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these spells, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.

For example, if you know the 1st-­level spell cure wounds and have a 1st-­level and a 2nd-­level spell slot available, you can cast cure wounds using either slot.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher[edit]

At 2nd level, you know two 1st-­level spells of your choice from all spell lists.

The Spells Known column of the Jack-of-all-trades table shows when you learn more spells of your choice. Each of these spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots, as shown on the table. For instance, when you reach 3rd level in this class, you can learn one new spell of 1st or 2nd level.

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

Spellcasting Ability[edit]

You choose either Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma as your spellcasting ability for your spells. In addition, you use your spellcasting modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your spellcasting ability modifier

Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your spellcasting ability modifier

Ritual Casting[edit]

You can cast any spell you know as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag.

Spellcasting Focus[edit]

You can use a charm as a spellcasting focus for your spells. A charm can be any trinket. (see Publication:Player's Handbook (5e) p. 160-161 for examples; work with your DM for an acceptable charm)

New Skill[edit]

Starting at 2nd level and every other level afterwards, you gain proficiency in a skill in which you do not already have proficiency.


Starting at 2nd level you gain resistance to one damage type not caused by a magic weapon. At later levels (indicated on the Overview Table), you gain additional resistances.

Armor Proficiency[edit]

Starting at 4th level, you gain proficiency in Template:Srd5.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

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, increase two ability scores of your choice by 1, or you can choose a feat. As normal, you can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 5th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the srd5:attack action on your turn.

Weapon Proficiency[edit]

Beginning at 6th level, you have proficiency in martial weapons


Beginning at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon’s fiery breath or an ice storm spell. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.

Bonus Feat[edit]

Beginning at 9th level, you can choose a(or an additional) Feat (see Player's Handbook for examples).

Magic Resistance[edit]

Beginning at 10th level, you gain advantage against spells and spell-like effects. In addition, you gain resistance to any damage produced by a spell.
