Academic Wizard

Academic Wizard

An academic wizard with his familiar.

Academic wizards are highly trained in all forms of schools of magic and are specialized in the methodology and procedures of spellcasting itself. They analyze the structure of spell formulas in great detail to optimize them and to be able to handle them with greater ease than other mages. Their understanding of these basic concepts allows them to interchange spells in a versatile, almost effortless way. Academic wizards are only trained in the Arcane Tower in the kingdom of Aglarion, where they master their trade for long years before leaving the academy.

Efficient Spell Recovery

Starting at 2nd level, you have learned to recall spells more efficiently by remembering their key variables. You can recover an additional spell slot when using your arcane recovery class ability.

Simplified Spell Rituals

Starting at 2nd level, you have mastered conducting rituals by focusing on their most fundamental structures. Instead of the usual 10 minutes required to cast ritual spells, you can cast the ritual version of a spell in 1 minute.

Expedient Spell Preparation

Starting at 6th level, you can prepare spells faster than usual. Preparing a new spell takes 1 round per spell level for you instead of the usual 1 minute per spell level.

Elevated Spell Power

Starting at 10th level, you attain an optimized form of spellcasting methodology, which makes your spells more powerful. Spells you cast are considered to be one spell slot level higher than their actual spell slot level.

Combined Spell Effects

Starting at 14th level, you learn how to apply spells so that their effects are combined. You can apply and stack the same magical effect of a spell to a target one additional time. Once you use this feature, you can’t use it until you finish a long rest.
