Dispelling Strike (Su): Twice per day, Jergil can attempt a dispelling strike with one normal melee attack. If he hits, he deals normal damage, and the victim is subject to a targeted greater dispel magic. Jergil’s dispel check is 1d20+12.

Extended Spellstrength (Ex): The duration of any Jergil’s Suel arcanamach spells that he casts on himself is doubled, as per the Extend Spell feat.

Favored Enemy (Ex): Due to his extensive study of humans, Jergil gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks against them. Likewise, Jergil gets a +2 bonus on weapon damage rolls against humans.

Hexblade's Curse (Su): As a free action twice per day, Jergil can unleash a terrible curse on a visible target within 60 feet. The target of a hexblade’s curse takes a -2 penalty on attacks, saves, ability checks, skills checks, and weapon damage rolls for 1 hour thereafter. A successful Will save (DC 13) negates the effect. Any effect that removes or dispels a curse eliminates the effect of a hexblade’s curse.

Mettle (Ex): At 3rd level and higher, if a hexblade makes a successful Will or Fortitude save against an attack that normally would have a lesser effect on a successful save, he instead completely negates the effect.

Arcane Resistance (Su): At 2nd level, a hexblade gains a bonus equal to his Charisma bonus (+2) on saving throws against spells and spell-like effects.

Tenacious Spells (Su): An arcanmach’s spells are particularly difficult to dispel; add 6 to the DC required to dispel Jergil’s arcanamach spells.

Combat Edit

If Jergil has time to prepare, he casts obscuring mist from a scroll (to prevent people from targeting him), and then casts displacement.

His favorite tactic in combat is to cast wraithstrike with one hand as a swift action, use a free action to power an Arcane Strike with a 1st level spell, then switch his grip on his longsword as a free action to wield it two-handed and power-attack for everything he has in the same round. He even likes to use his 3rd level spell slots to cast wraithstrike, preferably using it every round of combat. He can do this for 6 rounds straight.
