Draconic Antithesis

Prerequisite: Wizard

Many wizards study the ways of dragons. What better source of ancient lore and potent magic, after all, than creatures capable of living a thousand years or more? You, too, have chosen to study these great beasts, but because you believe them a menace or a great evil. For whatever reason, you hone your spells to best counter and destroy the legendary creatures.

DRACONIC ANTITHESIS PATH FEATURES

    Countering Thesis (11th level): When you take damage of a certain type, you gain resist 5 against that damage type until the end of your next turn.
    Dragon-Slayer's Action (11th level): You can spend an action point to reroll an attack roll against a dragon, or to end a condition currently affecting you that originated from a dragon, and that a save can end. Using this feature replaces the normal action point benefit of taking an extra action.
    Sky-Slayer (16th level): You gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls against flying creatures.
