Spell Attack Bonus and Spell DC for a non-spellcaster-class PC who can cast a few cantrip


Rules Discussion


This came up in my game today and I couldn’t find an answer. One of the PCs (a Rogue) chose the Minor Magic feat which gave him 2 cantrips from a magic tradition of his choice. He chose Primal. Questions:

1. For purposes of Spell Attack Bonus and Spell DC, is he considered Trained with these cantrips?

2. What attribute bonus should he use to do these calculations? We just went with Wisdom but had no idea if this is correct for Primal spells.

All innate spells use charisma for stat and are trained. Core rulebook pg302
