Prestige (Advanced) Classes

Prestige, or advanced classes, are classes that can be unlocked during regular game play by spending what we call ‘account experience’.  This account experience is gained in multiple ways simply by playing the game. Once a prestige class is unlocked, it is available for every character on your account. Keep in mind there is a 3 class multi-classing limit. Prestige classes also have other requirements.  It could be a certain number of ranks in a skill, knowing one or more feats, having a certain base attack bonus, and so forth.

Go to Base Classes

arcane archer

Arcane Archer

Arcane archers combine the power and utility of arcane magic with lethal ranged combat prowess. Their ranged attacks increase in power and accuracy as they grow in power, and they gain the ability to attach special effects to their missiles as well. Their main ability scores are Dexterity and whatever the main spellcasting ability score is for your arcane spellcasting class. To become an arcane archer one must have the following: weapon focus (in ranged weapons), Has Arcane Any (circle) 1 spells, precise shot, point blank shot, Min. base attack bonus +5.

arcane trickster

Arcane Trickster (Arcane Shadow)

Arcane shadows combine the benefits of rogues and arcane spellcasters in one. Like rogues, they get many skill points. They improve their sneak attack damage as well as their arcane spellcasting ability as they level up. They get special abilities that allow them to cast spells while hiding, perform sneak attacks even when conditions wouldn't normally allow them to, and add sneak attack on top of spell damage when casting a damaging spell. Their main ability scores are Dexterity and whatever the main spellcasting ability score is for your arcane spellcasting class. Becoming an arcane shadow requires the following: Align: Chaotic Neutral, Chaotic Good, Chaotic Evil, Neutral Evil, True Neutral, Neutral Good, sneak attack (2 ranks), Has Arcane Any (circle) 2 spells, 4 ranks in Spellcraft, 4 ranks in Escape Artist, 4 ranks in Disable Device.



A mercenary undertaking his task with cold, professional detachment, the assassin is equally adept at espionage, bounty hunting, and terrorism. At his core, an assassin is an artisan, and his medium is death. Trained in a variety of killing techniques, assassins are among the most feared classes. Assassins tend to be loners by nature, seeing companions as liabilities at best. Sometimes an assassin's missions put him in the company of adventurers for long stretches at a time, but few people are comfortable trusting a professional assassin to watch their backs in a fight, and are more likely to let the emotionless killer scout ahead or help prepare ambushes.



Duelists represent the pinnacle of elegant swordplay. They move with a grace unmatched by most foes, parrying blows and countering attacks with swift thrusts of their blades. They may wear armor, but generally eschew such bulky protection as their grace allows them to dodge their opponents with ease. While others flounder on treacherous terrain, duelists charge nimbly across the battlefield, leaping and tumbling into the fray. They thrive in melee, where their skill with the blade allows them to make sudden attacks against clumsy foes and to cripple opponents with particularly well-placed thrusts of the blade.

eldritch knight

Eldritch Knight

Fearsome warriors and spellcasters, eldritch knights are rare among magic-users in their ability to wade into battle alongside fighters, barbarians, and other martial classes. Those who must face eldritch knights in combat fear them greatly, for their versatility on the battlefield is tremendous; against heavily armed and armored opponents they may level crippling spells, while opposing spellcasters meet their ends on an eldritch knight's blade.

mystic theurge

Mystic Theurge

Mystic theurges place no boundaries on their magical abilities and find no irreconcilable paradox in devotion to the arcane as well as the divine. They seek magic in all of its forms, finding no reason or logic in denying themselves instruction by limiting their knowledge to one stifling paradigm, though many are simply hungry for limitless power. No matter what their motivations, mystic theurges believe that perception is reality, and through the divine forces and astral energies of the multiverse, that perception can be used to manipulate and control not only the nature of this reality, but destiny itself



While others use magic to do paltry things like conjure fire or fly, the Necromancer is a master over death itself. They study the deep and forbidden secrets that raise the dead, controlling minions toward a variety of goals. Perhaps they seek the power that mastery over death provides. Perhaps they are serious and unashamed scholars, who reject the small-minded boundaries held to by others. Each enemy they fell becomes an eager and disposable ally, they become immune to the energies of death and decay, and ultimately harness the immortality and power of undeath for themselves.

sacred fist

Sacred Fist

Sacred Fists are independent organizations found within many temples. Their ascetic members have turned their divine magic inward, bringing their bodies and wills into harmony. They consider their bodies and minds gifts from their deity, and they believe that not developing those gifts to their fullest potential is a sin. Spellcasting does not dishonor them or their deity. Sacred Fists are strong in faith, will and body.

shadow dancer

Shadow Dancer

Shadowdancers exist in the boundary between light and darkness, where they weave together the shadows to become half-seen artists of deception. Unbound by any specified morality or traditional code, shadowdancers encompass a wide variety of adventuring types who have seen the value of the dark.



A shifter has no form they call their own. Instead, they clothe themselves in whatever shape is most expedient at the time. While others base their identities largely on their external forms, the shifter actually comes closer to their true self through all of their transformations. Of necessity, their sense of self is based not on their outward form, but on their soul, which is truly the only constant about them. It is the inner strength of that soul that enables them to take on any shape and remain themselves within.



The dream of melding magic and weaponplay is fulfilled in the person of the spellsword. A student of both arcane rituals and martial techniques, the spellsword gradually learns to cast spells in armor with less chance of failure. Moreover, he can cast spells through his weapon, bypassing his opponent's defenses. Despite the class's name, a spellsword can use any weapon or even switch weapons. 'Spellaxe,' 'spellspear,' and other appellations for this prestige class are certainly possible but not commonly used. The requirements for this prestige class make it most attractive to multiclass wizard/warriors or sorcerer/warriors, although bard/warriors can meet the requirements just as easily. Feared by other martial characters because of his ability to use spells, and feared by spellcasters because of his ability to cast those spells while wearing armor, a spellsword often walks the world alone.

stalwart defender

Stalwart Defender

Drawn from the ranks of guards, knights, mercenaries, and thugs alike, stalwart defenders are masters of claiming an area and refusing to relinquish it. This behavior is more than a tactical decision for stalwart defenders; it is an obsessive, stubborn expression of the need to be undefeated. When stalwart defenders set themselves in a defensive stance, they place their whole effort into weathering whatever foe, conflict, or threat comes their way.

weapon master

Weapon Master

For the weapon master, perfection is found in the mastery of one or more weapons. A weapon master seeks to unite this weapon of choice with his body, to make them one, and to use the weapon as naturally and without thought as any other limb.
