Bloodline Paragon


Rules Discussion


How does this work with a feat like Primal Evolution or Divine Evolution that provides a single spell slot you can use to cast a set spell like heal or summon animal at your highest level?

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.

Divine Evolution gives you an extra spell slot at your highest level.

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.

Bloodline Paragon gives you 10th-level spells.

If you have both, then 10th level will be your highest spell level, so you get a 10th-level spell slot to cast your choice of heal or harm.

So this portion of Bloodline Paragon "abilities that give you more spell slots" wouldn't apply to it? It would apply if you got like say Arcane Bond somehow?

Oh, I think you are right. I misread that line.

So your heal/harm would still be a 9th-level slot.


AFAICT that clause just means "if you are given more spell slots you can't use them to cast the 10th-level spells given by this ability," not "you must ignore the fact that you can cast these when dealing with abilities that give you spell slots." So I side with the Fox's original answer.
