Bladesinger wizard Arcane tradition new rule
The Bladesinger wizard is a class in print before, back in WOTC’s Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide. However, given that much of TCoE is all about giving creative freedom to the player. The new rules designers at the helm of D&D have opted to make a few adjustments to this martial wizard tradition. The first and most apparent change to the Arcane Tradition is removing the Elf race requirement for choosing the subclass to start.
When you choose this Arcane Tradition in the 2nd level, the first feature is Training in War and Song. You obtain proficiency with light armor, and you gain proficiency with one kind of one-handed melee weapon. You also gain proficiency in the Performance skill in case you don’t already have it.
Bladesong comes in as the life of this subclass in the 2nd level. You can use a bonus action to start the Bladesong, which lasts for 1 minute. It finishes early if you are incapacitated, should you don medium or heavy armor or a shield, or when you use two hands to produce an attack with a weapon. You might even dismiss the Bladesong anytime (no action required).
Advantages of Bladesong
While your Bladesong is active, you get the following advantages:
- You get a bonus to your AC equal to your Intelligence modifier (minimum of +1)
- Your walking rate increases by 10 feet.
- You gain a bonus to any Constitution saving throw you make to keep your focus on a spell. The bonus equals your Intelligence modifier (minimum of +1).
- It’s possible to use this attribute a variety of times equal to a proficiency incentive. You regain all expended uses of it once you finish a long rest.
Extra Attack comes slightly later to your Bladesinger than it will for other martial classes, at 6th level instead of 5th.
Even though your Bladesong is busy, suppose you take damage. You can use your reaction to expend one spell slot and reduce that harm to you personally by an amount equal to 5 times the spell slot’s degree.
The final feature rounds from the Bladesinger tradition at the 14th level. It lets you add your Intelligence modifier to your melee weapon strikes’ damage while your Bladesong is active.

If you like Bladesinger wizard and might love to see more, it’s better to visit the D&D website to learn more. Bladesingers master a custom of wizardry that integrates swordplay and dancing. Created by elves, this convention was embraced by non-elf practitioners, who honor and enlarge on the elven ways.
In combat, a bladesinger uses a series of complicated, elegant maneuvers that fend off injury and allow the bladesinger to channel magical into devastating strikes and an adorable defense. Many who have observed a bladesinger in the office recall the display among the more beautiful experiences in their lifetime, a glorious dance accompanied by a singing blade.
Training in War and Song
When you adopt this tradition in the 2nd level, you gain proficiency with light armor. You also gain proficiency with a single type of one-handed melee weapon of your choice.
You also gain proficiency in the Performance skill in case you don’t already have it.
