This class is currently being previewed for the next update of the Basic Rules.

A Khajiit Pilgrim takes a moment to center herself at a roadside wayshrine.


Pilgrims are travelers and wayfarers who are constantly on the move, seeking out truth and enlightenment. Being immersed in new cultures and always surrounding themselves with new ideas keeps their minds and hearts open.

They are well-versed in tomes of old, and get through life by bartering in the market or persuading the weak-minded. Pilgrims are naturally charismatic and their travels bring fascinating stories to tell. Their journeys can also bring out a nefarious side. The inability to lay down roots and build long lasting relationships can cause a person to grow cold and self-indulgent. Some pilgrims find themselves akin to snake-oil salesmen, profiting off of scams or deceit before moving on to the next mark.

A priest with this calling might follow Baan Dar, Clavicus Vile, Dibella, Sanguine, Sheogorath, St. Veloth, Vivec, Zenithar.

You ignore non-magical difficult terrain, and cannot become lost except by magical means. Additionally, any creatures of your choice within 30 feet of you that can hear you also gain this benefit.

Divine Strike

You gain the ability to infuse your weapon strikes with divine energy. Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 psychic damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Eye for Weak Points

17th-level Pilgrim Calling feature

When you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you gain advantage on the next attack you make against that creature. Additionally, any creature that sees this attack gains a bonus to their next attack roll equal to your Willpower modifier. You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Willpower modifier. You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.
