Pathfinder 2 Sorcerer Class

You didn’t choose to become a spellcaster—you were born one. There’s magic in your blood, whether a divinity touched one of your ancestors, a forebear communed with a primal creature, or a powerful occult ritual influenced your line. Self-reflection and study allow you to refine your inherent magical skills and unlock new, more powerful abilities. The power in your blood carries a risk, however, and you constantly face the choice of whether you’ll rise to become a master spellcaster or fall into destruction.

Key Ability Charisma - At 1st level, your class gives you an ability boost to Charisma.
Hit Points 6 + Con Modifier - You increase your maximum number of HP by this number at 1st level and every level thereafter.

During Combat Encounters...

You use spells to injure your enemies, influence their minds, and hamper their movements. You might be too vulnerable to get into melee combat, or your bloodline might give you abilities that help you hold your own in a brawl. While your magic is powerful, to conserve your best spells—or when you’ve used them all up—you also rely on cantrips.

During Social Encounters...

Your natural charisma makes you good at interacting with people.

While Exploring...

You detect the magic around you, finding treasures and warning your adventuring group of magical traps. When the group encounters mysteries or problems related to your bloodline, you try to solve them.

In Downtime...

You craft magic items or scribe scrolls. Your bloodline might drive you to research your ancestry or associate with affiliated people or creatures.

You Might...

Others Probably...

Class Features

You gain these abilities as a Sorcerer. Abilities gained at higher levels list the levels at which you gain them next to the features’ names.

Ancestry and Background

In addition to the abilities provided by your class at 1st level, you have the benefits of your selected ancestry and background.

Initial Proficiencies

At 1st level you gain a number of proficiencies that represent your basic training. These proficiencies are noted in at the start of this class.

Bloodline

Choose a bloodline that gives you your spellcasting talent. This choice determines the type of spells you cast and the spell list you choose them from, additional spells you learn, and additional trained skills. You also gain Focus Points and special focus spells based on your bloodline. The bloodlines presented in this book are as follows.

Aberrant: A strange and unknowable influence gives you occult spells.

Angelic: Holy grace bestows divine spells upon you.

Demonic: A sinful corruption gives you divine spells.

Diabolic: A bond with devils gives you divine spells.

Draconic: The blood of dragons grants you arcane spells.

Elemental: The power of the elements manifests in you as primal spells.

Fey: Influence from the fey gives you primal spells.

Hag: The blight of a hag has given you occult spells.

Imperial: An ancient power grants you arcane spells.

Undead: The touch of death gives you divine spells.

See Bloodlines for more information.

The Blessed and the Damned

Many bloodlines are tied to certain types of creatures, and the reputations of those creatures might color how people see you. If you have the blood of demons, people might fear you; conversely, people of good faiths might assume your angelic blood puts you on their side. These preconceptions aren’t necessarily true, and you can certainly use demonic or infernal powers to do good. Having a bloodline tied to creatures of a certain alignment doesn’t have any effect on your own alignment unless you want it to; your magic is disconnected from its source. That said, many sorcerers seek out creatures or organizations associated with their bloodlines, which can expose them to these forces’ influences.

Sorcerer Spellcasting

Your bloodline provides you with incredible magical power. You can cast spells using the Cast a Spell activity, and you can supply material, somatic, and verbal components when casting spells (see Casting Spells on page 302). Because you’re a sorcerer, you can usually replace material components with somatic components, so you don’t need to use a spell component pouch.

Each day, you can cast up to three 1st-level spells. You must know spells to cast them, and you learn them via the spell repertoire class feature. The number of spells you can cast each day is called your spell slots.

As you increase in level as a sorcerer, your number of spells per day increases, as does the highest level of spells you can cast, as shown at Table: Sorcerer Spells per Day.

Some of your spells require you to attempt a spell attack roll to see how effective they are, or have your enemies roll against your spell DC (typically by attempting a saving throw). Since your key ability is Charisma, your spell attack rolls and spell DCs use your Charisma modifier. Details on calculating these statistics appear on page 447

Heightening Spells

When you get spell slots of 2nd level and higher, you can fill those slots with stronger versions of lower-level spells. This increases the spell’s level to match the spell slot. You must have a spell in your spell repertoire at the level you want to cast in order to heighten it to that level. Many spells have specific improvements when they are heightened to certain levels (page 299). The signature spells class feature lets you heighten certain spells freely.

Cantrips

A cantrip is a special type of spell that doesn’t use spell slots. You can cast a cantrip at will, any number of times per day. A cantrip is always automatically heightened to half your level rounded up—this is usually equal to the highest level of spell you can cast as a sorcerer. For example, as a 1st- level sorcerer, your cantrips are 1st-level spells, and as a 5th-level sorcerer, your cantrips are 3rd-level spells.

* The bloodline paragon class feature gives you a 10th-level spell slot that works a bit differently from other spell slots.

Spell Repertoire

The collection of spells you can cast is called your spell repertoire. At 1st level, you learn two 1st-level spells of your choice and four cantrips of your choice, as well as an additional spell and cantrip from your bloodline. You choose these from the common spells from the tradition corresponding to your bloodline, or from other spells from that tradition to which you have access. You can cast any spell in your spell repertoire by using a spell slot of an appropriate spell level.

You add to this spell repertoire as you increase in level. Each time you get a spell slot (see Table: Sorcerer Spells per Day), you add a spell of the same level to your spell repertoire. When you gain access to a new level of spells, your first new spell is always your bloodline spell, but you can choose the other spells you gain. At 2nd level, you select another 1st-level spell; at 3rd level, you gain a new bloodline spell and two other 2nd-level spells, and so on. When you add spells, you might choose a higher-level version of a spell you already have so that you can cast a heightened version of that spell.

Though you gain them at the same rate, your spell slots and the spells in your spell repertoire are separate. If a feat or other ability adds a spell to your spell repertoire, it wouldn’t give you another spell slot, and vice versa.

Swapping Spells in Your Repertoire

As you gain new spells in your spell repertoire, you might want to replace some of the spells you previously learned. Each time you gain a level and learn new spells, you can swap out one of your old spells for a different spell of the same level. This spell can be a cantrip, but you can’t swap out bloodline spells. You can also swap out spells by retraining during downtime (page 481).

Skill Feats [Level 2]

At 2nd level and every 2 levels thereafter, you gain a skill feat. Skill feats can be found in Chapter 5 and have the skill trait. You must be trained or better in the corresponding skill to select a skill feat.

Sorcerer Feats [Level 2]

At 2nd level and every even-numbered level, you gain a sorcerer class feat.

General Feats [Level 3]

At 3rd level and every 4 levels thereafter, you gain a general feat. General feats are listed in Chapter 5.

Signature Spells [Level 3]

You’ve learned to cast some of your spells more flexibly. For each spell level you have access to, choose one spell of that level to be a signature spell. You don’t need to learn heightened versions of signature spells separately; instead, you can heighten these spells freely. If you’ve learned a signature spell at a higher level than its minimum, you can also cast all its lower-level versions without learning those separately. If you swap out a signature spell, you can choose a replacement signature spell of the same spell level at which you learned the previous spell. You can also retrain specifically to change a signature spell to a different spell of that level without swapping any spells; this takes as much time as retraining a spell normally does.

Skill Increases

At 3rd level and every 2 levels thereafter, you gain a skill increase. You can use this increase either to increase your proficiency rank to trained in one skill you’re untrained in, or to increase your proficiency rank in one skill in which you’re already trained to expert.

At 7th level, you can use skill increases to increase your proficiency rank to master in a skill in which you’re already an expert, and at 15th level, you can use them to increase your proficiency rank to legendary in a skill in which you’re already a master.

Ability Boosts [Level 5]

At 5th level and every 5 levels thereafter, you boost four different ability scores. You can use these ability boosts to increase your ability scores above 18. Boosting an ability score increases it by 1 if it’s already 18 or above, or by 2 if it starts out below 18.

Ancestry Feats [Level 5]

In addition to the ancestry feat you started with, you gain an ancestry feat at 5th level and every 4 levels thereafter. The list of ancestry feats available to you can be found in your ancestry’s entry.

Magical Fortitude [Level 5]

Magical power has improved your body’s resiliency. Your proficiency rank for Fortitude saves increases to expert.

Expert Spellcaster [Level 7]

Your inherent magic responds easily and powerfully to your command. Your proficiency ranks for spell attack rolls and spell DCs for spells of your bloodline’s tradition increase to expert.

Lightning Reflexes [Level 9]

Your reflexes are lightning fast. Your proficiency rank for Reflex saves increases to expert.

Alertness [Level 11]

You remain alert to threats around you. Your proficiency rank for Perception increases to expert.

Simple Weapon Expertise [Level 11]

Training and magic improved your weapon technique. Your proficiency rank for simple weapons increases to expert.

Defensive Robes [Level 13]

The flow of magic and your defensive training combine to help you get out of the way before an attack. Your proficiency rank in unarmored defense increases to expert.

Weapon Specialization [Level 13]

You’ve learned to inflict grave wounds with your practiced weapons. You deal 2 additional damage with weapons and unarmed attacks in which you are an expert. This damage increases to 3 if you’re a master, and 4 if you’re legendary.

Master Spellcaster [Level 15]

You have achieved mastery over the magic in your blood. Your proficiency ranks for spell attack rolls and spell DCs for spells of your bloodline’s tradition increase to master.

Bloodline Paragon [Level 19]

You have perfected the magic in your bloodline. Add two common 10th-level spells of your tradition to your repertoire. You gain a single 10th-level spell slot you can use to cast these spells, using sorcerer spellcasting. Unlike other spell slots, you don’t gain more 10th-level spells as you level up, and they can’t be used for abilities that let you cast spells without expending spell slots or abilities that give you more spell slots. You can take the Bloodline Perfection sorcerer feat to gain a second slot.

Legendary Spellcaster [Level 19]

You demonstrate prodigious talent for spellcasting. Your proficiency ranks for spell attack rolls and spell DCs for spells of your bloodline’s tradition increase to legendary.

Bloodlines

Choose your bloodline, the source of your power. It has a major influence on your abilities, determining your spell list, the tradition of spells you cast, and two trained skills.

Bloodline Spells

Your bloodline grants you bloodline spells, special spells unique to your lineage. Bloodline spells are a type of focus spell. It costs 1 Focus Point to cast a focus spell, and you start with a focus pool of 1 Focus Point. You refill your focus pool during your daily preparations, and you can regain 1 Focus Point by spending 10 minutes using the Refocus activity. Unlike other characters, you don’t need to do anything specific to Refocus, as the power of the blood flowing through your veins naturally replenishes your focus pool.

Focus spells are automatically heightened to half your level rounded up. Focus spells don’t require spell slots, nor can you cast them using spell slots. Taking feats can give you more focus spells and increase the size of your focus pool, though your focus pool can never hold more than 3 points. The full rules are on page 300.

Reading a Bloodline Entry

A bloodline entry contains the following information.

Spell List You use this magical tradition and spell list.

Bloodline Skills You become trained in the listed skills.

Granted Spells You automatically add the spells listed here to your spell repertoire, in addition to those you gain through sorcerer spellcasting. At 1st level, you gain a cantrip and a 1st-level spell. You learn the other spells on the list as soon as you gain the ability to cast sorcerer spells of that level.

Bloodline Spells You automatically gain the initial bloodline spell at 1st level and can gain more by selecting the Advanced Bloodline and Greater Bloodline feats.

Blood Magic Whenever you cast a bloodline spell using Focus Points or a granted spell from your bloodline using a spell slot, you gain a blood magic effect. If the blood magic offers a choice, make it before resolving the spell. The blood magic effect occurs after resolving any checks for the spell’s initial effects and, against a foe, applies only if the spell is a successful attack or the foe fails its saving throw. If the spell has an area, you must designate yourself or one target in the area when you cast the spell to be the target of the blood magic effect. All references to spell level refer to the level of the spell you cast.

The evil chromatic dragons and their damage types are black (acid), blue (electricity), green (poison), red (fire), and white (cold).

Elemental Type

At 1st level, choose the type of elemental that influenced your bloodline: air, earth, fire, or water. If your element is air, you buffet your foes with powerful winds; if it’s earth, you toss huge chunks of rock; if it’s fire, you incinerate your foes with flame; and if it’s water, you inundate your foes with torrents of water.

Sorcerer Feats

At every level that you gain a Sorcerer feat, you can select one of the following feats. You must satisfy any prerequisites before taking the feat.

Counterspell [Reaction]

Feat 1
Abjuration Sorcerer

Trigger A creature casts a spell that you have in your repertoire.

Requirements You have an unexpended spell slot you could use to cast the triggering spell.


When a foe Casts a Spell you know and you can see its manifestations, you can use your own magic to disrupt it. You expend one of your spell slots to counter the triggering creature’s casting of a spell that you have in your repertoire. You lose your spell slot as if you had cast the triggering spell. You then attempt to counteract the triggering spell (page 458).

Special This feat has the trait corresponding to the tradition of spells you cast (arcane, divine, natural, or occult).


Dangerous Sorcery

Feat 1
Sorcerer

Your legacy grants you great destructive power. When you Cast a Spell from your spell slots, if the spell deals damage and doesn’t have a duration, you gain a status bonus to that spell’s damage equal to the spell’s level.


Familiar

Feat 1
Sorcerer

An animal serves you and assists your spellcasting. You gain a familiar (rules for familiars are found on page 217).


Reach Spell [1 action]

Feat 1
Concentrate Metamagic Sorcerer

You can extend the range of your spells. If the next action you use is to Cast a Spell that has a range, increase that spell’s range by 30 feet. As is standard for increasing spell ranges, if the spell normally has a range of touch, you extend its range to 30 feet.


Widen Spell [1 action]

Feat 1
Concentrate Metamagic Sorcerer

You manipulate the energy of your spell, causing it to affect a wider area. If the next action you use is to Cast a Spell that has an area of a burst, cone, or line and does not have a duration, increase the area of that spell. Add 5 feet to the radius of a burst that normally has a radius of at least 10 feet (a burst with a smaller radius is not affected). Add 5 feet to the length of a cone or line that is normally 15 feet long or smaller, and add 10 feet to the length of a larger cone or line.


Cantrip Expansion

Feat 2
Sorcerer

You better understand the basic power of your bloodline. Add two additional cantrips from your spell list to your repertoire.


Enhanced Familiar

Feat 2
Sorcerer

Prerequisites a familiar


You infuse your familiar with additional magical energy. You can select four familiar or master abilities each day, instead of two.


Arcane Evolution

Feat 4
Arcane Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline that grants arcane spells


Your arcane legacy grants you an exceptional aptitude for intellectual and academic pursuits. You become trained in one skill of your choice. Additionally, you keep a book of arcane spells similar to a wizard’s spellbook. You add all the spells in your spell repertoire to this book for free, and you can add additional arcane spells to the book by paying the appropriate cost and using your Arcana skill, similarly to how a wizard can Learn Spells to add those spells to his spellbook.

During your daily preparations, choose any one spell from your book of arcane spells. If it isn’t in your spell repertoire, add it to your spell repertoire until the next time you prepare. If it’s already in your spell repertoire, add it as an additional signature spell for that day.


Bespell Weapon

Feat 4
Sorcerer

Frequency once per turn

Requirements Your most recent action was to cast a non-cantrip spell.


You siphon the residual energy from the last spell you cast into one weapon you’re wielding. Until the end of your turn, the weapon deals an extra 1d6 damage of a type depending on the school of the spell you just cast.

  • Abjuration force damage
  • Conjuration or Transmutation the same type as the weapon
  • Divination, Enchantment, or Illusion mental damage
  • Evocation a type the spell dealt, or force damage if the spell didn’t deal damage
  • Necromancy negative damage

Divine Evolution

Feat 4
Divine Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline that grants divine spells


The divine might provided by your bloodline flows through you. You gain an additional spell slot of your highest level, which you can use only to cast your choice of heal or harm. You can cast either of these spells using that spell slot, even if they aren’t in your spell repertoire.


Occult Evolution

Feat 4
Occult Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline that grants occult spells


Glimpses of the obscure secrets of the universe loan you power. You become trained in one skill of your choice. Additionally, once per day, you can spend 1 minute to choose one mental occult spell you don’t know and add it to your spell repertoire. You lose this temporary spell the next time you make your daily preparations (though you can use this ability to add it again later).


Primal Evolution

Feat 4
Primal Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline that grants primal spells


You can call upon the creatures of the wild for aid. You gain an additional spell slot of your highest level, which you can use only to cast summon animal or summon plants and fungi. You can cast either of these spells using that spell slot, even if it they aren’t in your spell repertoire.


Advanced Bloodline

Feat 6
Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline spell


You have studied your bloodline to learn the secrets of its magic. You gain the advanced bloodline spell associated with your bloodline. Increase the number of Focus Points in your focus pool by 1.


Steady Spellcasting

Feat 6
Sorcerer

You are confident in your spellcasting technique, and you are more easily able to retain your concentration when you Cast a Spell. If a reaction would disrupt your spellcasting action, attempt a DC 15 flat check. If you succeed, your action isn’t disrupted.


Bloodline Resistance

Feat 8
Sorcerer

Your magical blood makes you more resistant to magic. You gain a +1 status bonus to saving throws against spells and magical effects.


Crossblooded Evolution

Feat 8
Sorcerer

Odd interactions in your bloodline provide you with unexpected spells. You can have one spell in your spell repertoire from a tradition other than the one that matches your bloodline. You cast that spell as a spell from your bloodline’s tradition. You can swap which spell you add and from which tradition as you could any other sorcerer spell, but you can’t have more than one spell from another tradition in your spell repertoire at the same time using this feat.


Greater Bloodline

Feat 10
Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline spell


Further communion with the legacy of your bloodline has uncovered greater secrets. You gain the greater bloodline spell associated with your bloodline. Increase the number of Focus Points in your focus pool by 1.


Overwhelming Energy [1 action]

Feat 10
Manipulate Metamagic Sorcerer

You alter your spells to overcome resistances. If the next action you use is to Cast a Spell, the spell ignores an amount of the target’s resistance to acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic damage equal to your level. This applies to all damage the spell deals, including persistent damage and damage caused by an ongoing effect of the spell, such as the wall created by wall of fire. A creature’s immunities are unaffected.


Quickened Casting [Free Action]

Feat 10
Concentrate Metamagic Sorcerer

Frequency once per day


In a mentally strenuous process, you modify your casting of a spell to take less time. If your next action is to cast a sorcerer cantrip or a sorcerer spell that is at least 2 levels lower than the highest level sorcerer spell you can cast, reduce the number of actions to cast it by 1 (minimum 1 action).


Bloodline Focus

Feat 12
Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline spell


Your focus recovers faster. If you have spent at least 2 Focus Points since the last time you Refocused, you recover 2 Focus Points when you Refocus instead of 1.


Magic Sense

Feat 12
Detection Divination Sorcerer

You have a literal sixth sense for magic. You can sense the presence of magic auras as though you were always using a 1st-level detect magic spell. This detects magic in your field of vision only. When you Seek, you gain the benefits of a 3rd-level detect magic spell on things you see (in addition to the normal benefits of Seeking). You can turn this sense off and on with a free action at the start or the end of your turn.


Interweave Dispel [1 action]

Feat 14
Metamagic Sorcerer

Prerequisites dispel magic in your spell repertoire


You weave dispelling energy into a spell, sending both effects at a foe. If your next action is to cast a single-target spell against a creature, and you either hit the foe with the spell attack roll or the foe fails its saving throw, you can cast dispel magic on the foe as a free action, expending a spell slot as normal and targeting one spell effect affecting the foe.


Reflect Spell

Feat 14
Sorcerer

Prerequisites Counterspell


When you successfully use Counterspell to counteract a spell that affects targeted creatures or an area, you can turn that spell’s effect back on its caster. When reflected, the spell affects only the original caster, even if it’s an area spell or it would normally affect more than one creature. The original caster can attempt a save and use other defenses against the reflected spell as normal.


Effortless Concentration [Free Action]

Feat 16
Sorcerer

Trigger Your turn begins


You maintain a spell with hardly a thought. You immediately gain the effects of the Sustain a Spell action, allowing you to extend the duration of one of your active sorcerer spells.


Greater Mental Evolution

Feat 16
Arcane Sorcerer

Prerequisites Arcane Evolution or Occult Evolution


Your bloodline’s deep connection to mental essence greatly enhances your spell repertoire. Add one spell to your spell repertoire for each spell level you can cast.


Greater Vital Evolution

Feat 16
Divine Sorcerer

Prerequisites Divine Evolution or Primal Evolution


Vital power surges through you like a font of energy. Twice per day, you can cast a spell after you’ve run out of spell slots of the appropriate spell level; the two spells you cast with this feat must be of different spell levels.


Bloodline Wellspring

Feat 18
Sorcerer

Prerequisites Bloodline Focus


Your blood’s power replenishes your focus. If you have spent at least 3 Focus Points since the last time you Refocused, you recover 3 Focus Points when you Refocus instead of 1.


Greater Crossblooded Evolution

Feat 18
Sorcerer

Prerequisites Crossblooded Evolution


Your bloodline is extraordinarily complex. You can have up to three spells from other traditions in your spell repertoire, rather than just one. These spells must each be of a different spell level, but they don’t need to be from the same tradition.


Bloodline Conduit [1 action]

Feat 20
Metamagic Sorcerer

Frequency once per minute


Your inborn magical nature lets you redirect ambient energies to fuel your spells. If your next action is to Cast a Spell of 5th level or lower that has no duration, you don’t expend the spell’s slot when you cast it.


Bloodline Perfection

Feat 20
Sorcerer

Prerequisites bloodline paragon


You command the ultimate powers of your bloodline and tradition. You gain an additional 10th-level spell slot.


Metamagic Mastery

Feat 20
Sorcerer

Altering your spells doesn’t take any longer than casting them normally. You can use metamagic single actions as free actions..
