Channel Divinity

In your study and devotion to your deity, you have unearthed fragments of divine blessings that imbue you with an abiding magical ability. Some deities may restrict which options you wish to gain.


At 1st level, you know the Sacred Flame and Thaumatagury cantrips, plus one additional cantrip of your choice from the cleric spell list. Your choice of Divine Domain may change your spell list.


Additionally, at 1st level, you gain two channel divinities of your choice from the channel divinity list. You gain additional channel divinities at 5th and 9th level. When you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the channel divinities that you know and replace it with another that you could learn at that level. Any channel divinities that grant you acess to spells can't be changed out for new spells.

Divine Domain

Choose one domain related to your beliefs or deity. Each domain is detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you domain spells and proficiencies when you choose it at 1st level. It also grants you additional abilities when you gain that feature at 3rd, 6th, and 10th levels.

Domain Spells

Each domain has a list of spells—its domain spells— that you gain at the cleric levels noted in the domain description. Once you gain a domain spell, you always have it prepared, and it doesn’t count against the number of spells you can prepare each day.


If you have a domain spell that doesn’t appear on the cleric spell list, the spell is nonetheless a cleric spell for you.

Cleric Spellcasting

As a conduit for divine power, you can cast cleric spells.

Cantrips

Due to your studies, you may replace any cantrip you know with another one from your list during a long rest. However, you may not replace Sacred Flame or Thaumaturgy.


You learn additional cleric cantrips of your choice at 5th and 10th level.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Cleric table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells. To cast one of your cleric spells of 1st level or higher, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.


You prepare the list of cleric spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the cleric spell list. When you do so, choose a number of cleric spells equal to your Wisdom modifier + your cleric level, rounded down (minimum of one spell). The spells must be of a level for which you have spell slots.


For example, if you are a 5th-level cleric, you have four 1st-level and three 2nd-level spell slots. With a Wisdom of 14, your list of prepared spells can include four spells of 1st or 2nd level, in any combination. If you prepare the 1st-level spell cure wounds, you can cast it using a 1st-level or a 2nd- level slot. Casting the spell doesn't remove it from your list of prepared spells.


You can change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest. Preparing a new list of cleric spells requires time spent in prayer and meditation: at least 1 minute per spell level for each spell on your list.

Spellcasting Ability

Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your cleric spells, since their power derives from the deep understanding of one's beliefs. You use your Wisdom whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a cleric spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

  • Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier
  • Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

You may choose to replace Wisdom with Charisma as your spellcasting ability score. If you make this decision, it can't be changed.


Divine Health

By 2nd level, the divine magic flowing through you makes you immune to disease.

Divine Enunciation

You understand abyssal, celestial, and infernal if you don't already. If you already know one or more of these languages, choose a language to learn in place any you already know.

Deluge of Radiance

Begining at 7th level when deal damage with the sacred flame cantrip, you deal additional damage equal to your Wisdom modifier. This extra damage is radiant damage.


During a long rest you may pray to your deity to bless your weapon attacks. Instead of adding damage to your sacred flame cantrip, your weapon attacks deal an additional 1d8 radiant damage.

Domain Spells

Starting at 3rd level, you can use your action or bonus action to magically assume the shape of a beast that you have seen before. You can use this feature twice, after which you may use a Channel Divinity Slot to wildshape again. You regain expended uses when you finish a short or long rest.


Your cleric level determines the beasts you can transform into, as shown in the Beast Shapes table. At 3rd level, for example, you can transform into any beast that has a challenge rating of 1 or lower that doesn't have a flying or swimming speed.


Beast Shapes
Level Max CR Limitations Example
3rd 1 No Flying or Swimming Wolf
4th 2 No Flying Speed Crocodile
8th 2 - Giant Eagle
9th 3 - Giant Scorpion

You can stay in a beast shape for a number of hours equal to your cleric level (rounded down). You then revert to your normal form unless you expend another use of this feature. You can revert to your normal form earlier by using a bonus action on your turn. You automatically revert if you fall unconscious, drop to 0 hit points, or die.



While you are transformed, the following rules apply:

  • Your game statistics are replaced by the statistics of the beast, but you retain your alignment, personality, and Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores. You also retain all of your skill and saving throw proficiencies, in addition to gaining those of the creature. If the creature has the same proficiency as you and the bonus in its stat block is higher than yours, use the creature's bonus instead of yours. If the creature has any legendary or lair actions, you can't use them.
  • When you transform, you assume the beast's hit points and Hit Dice. When you revert to your normal form, you return to the number of hit points you had before you transformed. However, if you revert as a result of dropping to 0 hit points, any excess damage carries over to your normal form. For example, if you take 10 damage in animal form and have only 1 hit point left, you revert and take 9 damage. As long as the excess damage doesn't reduce your normal form to 0 hit points, you aren't knocked unconscious.
  • You can't cast spells, and your ability to speak or take any action that requires hands is limited to the capabilities of your beast form. Transforming doesn't break your concentration on a spell you've already cast, however, or prevent you from taking actions that are part of a spell, such as call lightning, that you've already cast.
  • You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so. However, you can't use any of your special senses, such as darkvision, unless your new form also has that sense.
  • You choose whether your equipment falls to the ground in your space, merges into your new form, or is worn by it. Worn equipment functions as normal, but the GM decides whether it is practical for the new form to wear a piece of equipment, based on the creature's shape and size. Your equipment doesn't change size or shape to match the new form, and any equipment that the new form can't wear must either fall to the ground or merge with it. Equipment that merges with the form has no effect until you leave the form.

Resist Nature's Wrath

Starting at 6th level choose Acid, Cold, Fire, Lightning, Poison, or Thunder. You have resistance to this damage type. At the end of a short or long rest you may change this choice.

Preserve Life

Starting at 3rd level, you can heal the badly injured.


As an action, you present your holy symbol and evoke healing energy that can restore a number of hit points equal to five times your cleric level. Choose any creatures within 30 feet of you, and divide those hit points among them. This feature can restore a creature to no more than half of its hit point maximum. You can't use this feature on an undead or a construct.


You must finish a short or long rest before you can use this feature again.

Blessed Healer

Beginning at 6th level, the healing spells you cast on others heal you as well. When you cast a spell of 1st level or higher that restores hit points to a creature other than you, you regain hit points equal to 2 + the spell's level.
