Arcanist Sage Subtype

Arcanists are experts on ancient knowledge and history. They are a type of Sage who borders into the topics usually left to Artificers. However, unlike a typical Sage they are dedicated spellcasters which focus on using wands and staves as spellcasting focuses, rather than relying much on melee and ranged weapons.


Spell Training: None.
Equipment Training: If you don’t already have History and Arcana as proficient skills you gain them, if you do have those already chose another skill instead.
