Sword-dancers blur the line between warrior and courtier. Sword-dancers are graceful and charming, with wits as sharp as their flashing blades. Fighters who follow the sword-dancer archetype often attach themselves to powerful lords as bodyguards, spies, and diplomats.

Bonus Proficiency

Beginning when you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you gain proficiency in the Performance and Persuasion skills.

Light on your Feet

Also at 3rd level, while wearing light or no armor, you can add your Charisma modifier (minimum of 1) to your armor class, and you ignore difficult terrain.

Dust on the Wind

Starting at 7th level, when you make a melee attack against a creature, you don’t provoke opportunity attacks from that creature until the start of your next turn.

Deadly Artistry

At 10th level, after you move at least 10 feet, your melee attacks deal an additional 1d8 damage until the start of your next turn.

Howling Edge of the Razor

Starting at 15th level, as a reaction when you take damage from a creature within 5 feet of you, you can make one melee weapon attack against that creature.

Teeth of Khamsin

At 18th level, when you take the Attack action, you can use the Dash action as a bonus action. When you Dash in this way, attack rolls made against you have disadvantage until the start of your next turn.

You can use this feature twice, and you regain all expended uses when you finish a short or long rest.
