Circle of Spirits

A Circle of Spirits druid is one that speaks directly to the spirits of nature, specifically the four elements of air, fire, earth, and water. Instead of focusing on just one element, the druid utilizes all four in order to maintain balance with the spirits, in hopes that by their small actions, more and more spirits will return to the wild and hopefully heal the imbalance of the land.

Elemental Protection

At 2nd level, you gain resistance to either acid, cold, fire, or lightning damage.

Elemental Balance

At 2nd level, whenever you would make a melee or ranged weapon attack, choose acid, cold, fire, or lightning. Your attack does that type of damage instead of the normal type of damage it would normally deal. The very next attack you make, you must make an attack that deals the opposite type of damage as the one you initially picked. If you chose acid, you must make a lightning attack and vice versa. If you chose cold you must make a fire attack and vice versa.

After this second attack, you are free to choose between the four elements again for your next attack.

Elemental Blasts

Starting at 6th level, as a reaction whenever you take acid, cold, fire, or lightning damage, you may immediately convert that energy into a blast of energy of the opposite type. If you were damaged by acid, you convert it into lightning and vice versa. If you were damaged by cold, you convert it into fire and vice versa. After calculating the damage you took, make a ranged weapon attack against a creature within 30 feet dealing 2d6 damage of the converted damage type if you hit.

Enhanced Elemental Protection

At 10th level, you gain the resistance opposite of what you choose for the Elemental Protection ability. If you chose acid resistance you gain lightning resistance and vice versa.

If you chose cold resistance you must choose fire resistance and vice versa.

Elemental Lord

At 14th level, you gain immunity the two damage types you had resistance to through the Elemental Protection and Enhanced Elemental Protection abilities. You also gain resistance to the remaining two damage types.
