Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 44th episode of our feat series. Today we’re gonna be taking a look ata very interesting one. Today we’re taking a look at Revenant Blade 5E Feat this particular feat will be found in the wayfinder’s guide to eberron and honestly i’ve never looked at it before now. To be honest i wasn’t even sure if it existed until today. It is very very cool and super useful for certain builds but i will get into all of that later.
If you don’t have the wayfinder’s guide to eberron i would certainly recommend getting it there’s one of my favorite of all time races in there and i’m sure it’s a great read for all of you as well. With all that hype out of the way let’s take a look at the description here to know what we’re talking about.

First and foremost this is our first feat where there’s actually two prerequisites to it, what kind of sword i’ll explain a little bit later. First and foremost you gotta be an elf fairly self-explanatory we’ve dealt with feats like that in the past namely elven accuracy. However where this one differs is to take advantage of two thirds and a feat, you have to have a revenant double bladed scimitar. You can also make your own revenant weapon but your DM has to approve it naturally and the description reads as followed.
Wow alright! A lot to unpack there. Let’s take it down to the walkthrough section and break this down just a little bit more.
So even without the blade equipped just on its own and this feat gives you a plus one to dex or strength. Which makes logical sense because this whole feat is being designed and aimed towards a finesse weapon. So you can use your strategies or your dex is the modifier which you know makes logical sense.
However while you’re holding a revenant double bladed scimitar or other revenant double bladed weapon. You get a +1 to AC which can make or break a lot of encounters and as your bonus action when you go to attack with that second blade it does 2d4 for instead of 1d4. Essentially doubling your damage minimum and maximum which is very very good stuff for sure. Alright let’s get into my personal thoughts on it.
I think this is honestly fantastic. Who benefits most from it? you know i want to say the hex blade warlock would either them or you know the rogue might as well actually. As well as the eldritch knight those would probably be the main three. Reason being they’re likely to have either the extremely high dex or strength you can pick either or with this weapon.
They also make particularly great elves. You can actually put paladin’s on the list too. I just because of their charisma right! The biggest winner hands-down though would be the hex blade warlock between this thirsty blade and a ton of other ways to modify their melee attacks i feel like they’d probably gain the most benefit from this. Also that plus one the AC would really help them out as well and yeah you know i would consider this if you’re just an elf in general or if you’re a melee character in general who happens to be an elf.
That being said, if you guys have any crazy alternative uses for this feat, anyways you’d like to see you use, any combo ideas or any comments please take it down to the comment section below. I really appreciate reading them and i know everyone else checking this article would as well. Thank you so much guys and as always have a great day and happy adventuring.
