Class FeaturesWeapon and Armor Proficiency: Bladesingers gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.
Spells Per Day: At every level except 1st and 6th the character gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in an arcane casting class she belonged to before adding the prestige class. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained, except for an increased effective level of spell casting. If a character had more than one arcane spell casting class before becoming a Bladesinger, she must decide to which class she adds the new level for purposes of determining spells per day.
Bladesong Style (Ex): A Bladesinger has learned the first steps of Bladesong. A Bladesinger can go into the Bladesong for a number of rounds equal to 4 + her Int Bonus at level 1 and an additional + 2 rounds per level of Bladesinger after 1st per day. A Bladesinger can go into the Bladesong as a movement action. Choose a bladed weapon that can be wielded with one-hand. When wielding the chosen weapon while in her Bladesong (and nothing else in the other hand), a Bladesinger gains a +1 Dodge Bonus to her AC. If the Bladesinger wears medium or heavy armor, she loses all benefits of the Bladesong style. This Dodge Bonus increases by +1 at levels 3, 5, 7, and 9. If the Bladesinger is caught Flat-Footed or otherwise denied his Dexterity Bonus, he also loses this Bonus. Once a Bladesinger leaves the dance of the Bladesong the Bladesinger is fatigued for 2X’s the number of rounds spent in the Bladesong.
Dance of Steel (Ex): A Bladesinger gains the Arcane Armor Training feat without having to meet the requirements.
Spellsong Style (Ex): A Bladesinger has discovered the first steps of Spellsong. Once per day during the Bladesong, a Bladesinger of 2nd level or higher may quicken a single spell of up to 2nd level, as if she had used the Quicken Spell feat, but without any adjustment to the spell's effective level or casting time. A Bladesinger may only use this ability when she can use Bladesong Style. Additional uses per day at levels 4, 6, 8 and 10.
Greater Bladesong Style (Ex): A Bladesinger of level 5th level or higher has greater understanding of Bladesong. At Bladesinger of 5th level or higher adds an additional +1 to her base attack while in Bladesong. This bonus increases by an additional +1 at 7th and 9th levels.
Greater Spellsong Style (Ex): A Bladesinger of level 6th or higher has greater understanding of Bladesong. At Bladesinger of 6th level or higher may quicken spells of 4th level or lower as if she had used the Quicken Spell feat, but without any adjustment to the spell's effective level or casting time. The Bladesinger can now use this ability even when not in the Bladesong.
Song of Warding: The Bladesinger weaves Arcane Wardings around his body, shielding him from magical harm. He gains Spell Resistance equal to 11 + his Character Level.
Greater Dance of Steel (Ex): A Bladesinger gains the Arcane Armor Mastery feat without having to meet the requirements.
Dance of the Master Bladesinger (Ex): A Bladesinger has mastered the dual arts of Bladesong and Spellsong. She is able to wield her blade and weave her spell with unnatural grace, skill, and speed, entering the Bladesong as a swift action and not being fatigued when leaving the dance. When performing a full attack action, the Bladesinger can perform 1 additional attack using her highest base attack bonus. At Bladesinger of 10th level may quicken spells of 6th level or lower as if she had used the Quicken Spell feat, but without any adjustment to the spell's effective level or casting time.
