The Dragon Warrior

Dragon Warriors devote their lives to the quest for a draconic mount. This dedication creates within them a mystical bond between fighter and the dragon to whom they will eventually Bond, though the two will not know this until they finally meet.

Dragon Strike

When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, your melee weapon strikes inflict an additional 1d6 damage. This damage is of one of the following energy types: acid, cold, fire, lightning or poison.

This represents the dragon species to which you will bind and can’t be changed.

Draconic Defense

When you reach 7th level, you draw strength from your draconic patron. You increase your Armor Class by 2, and gain one additional use of your Second Wind combat ability.

Draconic Combat

At 10th level, you may choose a second fighting style or any one feat of your choice.

Superior Dragon Strike

At 15th level, your melee weapon strikes inflict an extra d6 damage (for a total of 2d6) of the same energy type as your initial Dragon Strike ability. In addition, your ranged attacks also inflict this extra damage.

Draconic Resilience

At 17th level, you gain resistance against all of the dragon’s magic and against its breath weapon energy type. If you succeed at a saving throw against your chosen energy type that would normally allow half or reduced damage, you instead take no damage. Finally, when fighting a dragon, if you are reduced to 0 hit points, you may as a reaction expend a use of Second Wind to regain hit points.

The Binding

At 17th level, you hear the call of the dragon with whom you are destined to bind. You are inexorably and instinctively drawn to the place where you will meet this dragon for the first time, which may or may not be its lair. It may take some time for you to complete this quest, but this is the moment it all begins…
