Dragonbane Pactmaker

Prerequisite: Warlock

Dragons are ubiquitous. They dwell in every known world, in every known environment. They exist even amongst the fey, among the fiends, and among the stars. You have entered into a second compact with an entity that despises all that is draconic, and it has granted you the ability to more effectively combat dragons.

DRAGONBANE PACTMAKER PATH FEATURES

    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.
    Dragonbane Boon (11th level): When an enemy under your Warlock’s Curse is reduced to 0 hit points or fewer, you gain a +1 bonus to your Reflex defense until the end of your next turn. If that creature is a dragon, you instead gain a +3 bonus to your Reflex defense.
