When creating an Iron Solari consider what made your character go down this path. Did they have a run in with a demon that took someone precious from them? Do they follow a god that has it out for fiends? Do you follow the path of protecting the innocent when fiends are about? Or do you actively seek out fiends to purge them from the realm?

You can make a Iron Solari quickly by following these suggestions. First, Strength should be your highest ability score, followed by Charisma. Second, choose the Soldier or other similar background.

The pendant lets you channel your power gained through this class, without it you cannot use the classes special abilities.

Reviewing The BATTLE SMITH! *06/06/2019*

When an ally hits a target marked with a brand, it explodes with radiant energy dealing an extra 1d4 radiant damage to the target. An enemy can only be afflicted with one brand at a time, which disappears after exploding.

Only one brand can explode per hit, and all brands get removed when combat is over. As you level up your Iron Solari, you become able to apply more brands to a target and increase the amount of damage inflicted. At level 10, you can have two brands on a single target, and at level 20, you can have three brands on a single target. Starting at 2nd level, you gain the ability to sense fiends. As an action, until the end of your next turn, you know the location of any fiend within feet of you that is not behind total cover.

You know the type of any being whose presence you sense, but not its identity. When you finish a long rest, you regain all expended uses. When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damge die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1 or a 2.

You must be wielding a shield to use this. At 3rd level, you choose an archetype to pursue to increase your strength. Choose between the Iron Defender or the Iron Blade, both detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at 7th, 11th, 15th, and 18th level. When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1.

The damage of this ability increases to 3d6 at 10th level, and 4d6 at 15th level. You regain all expended uses of this feature after a long rest.Homunculi vary greatly in form and function.

The creator needs a workshop to create one, the raw materials, and the skill necessary to create one. Designs for homunculi may come from anywhere from House Cannith to Xen'drik.

Skilled artificers can improve upon the design of a homunculus, and may do things like add wings onto an iron defender. Designed to support ranged attacks, the arbalester is a homunculus that resembles a mounted crossbow, but with a face on the front. This homunculus is, in fact, designed around the stock of a crossbow, but like other homunculi, is semi-sentient.

The arbalester is designed with a built-in quiver that can stock 20 bolts, and the arbalester can arm itself quite quickly with arms that are attached to the stock. Arbalesters are traditionally built with green wood, with inlays of silver and gold. They can also be enchanted, much like a masterwork crossbow can. The dedicated wright is a humanoid homunculus molded from clay. It is rough-shaped, and squat, like a dwarf. The dedicated wright is designed for the explicit purpose to aide its creator in the creation of other items.

The dedicated wright is not designed for combat, and will hide itself should it be exposed to combat. Instead, the dedicated wright is designed to stay at home and craft magical weapons, armor, and equipment. The expeditious messenger resembles a cross between a winged lemur and a diminutive dragon. This homunculus is one of the few that can pass as an organic creature, though it is crafted from clay, hair, scales, and feathers.

The expeditious messenger is only 9 inches from its nose to its barbed tail. This homunculus is designed for one purpose: to quickly ferry messages to and from its creator.

It is designed to move fast, and will avoid combat at all costs to continue to ferry its message. The furtive filcher is a tiny, shadowy, vaguely humanoid form. Fore resembling a wisp of shadow than a homunculus, the furtive filcher is only 18 inches tall. This homunculus is quick, and is designed for the express purpose of stealing objects on behalf of its owner.

The furtive fincher is created from clay and ash. The iron defender is one of the more popular designs for homunculi. This iron-plated dog serves as a faithful guard, protecting its creator much like a true canine would. The iron defender stands at two-feet tall, and instead of teeth, the iron defender has serrated razor-sharp blades in its mouth. The iron defender also has spikes running along its spine. The iron defender is a favorite of both House Cannith and House Kundarakwhich keep iron defenders in some of their enclaves, including the House Kundarak enclave in Stormreach and the hidden House Cannith Forge of the Sacred Spark.

The packmate resembles a chest with arms and legs. In fact, that is exactly what the packmate is: a set of drawers that can walk and move along with its creator. The packmate is designed around a wood and metal chest, with four legs beneath it, capable of carrying it along. Two pincer-like arms extend from the chest, allowing the packmate to withdraw items from one of the various compartments.

Each of these compartments are magically locked. The persistent harrier is a humanoid homunculus; a two-feet-tall silver biped covered in spikes.Free Resources on Roll All rights reserved.

Thread starter Eubani Start date Jul 23, Eubani Adventurer. One of my players who is playing a Gnome Artificer Battlesmith wants to use his Iron Defender as a mount. I can see that whilst it was not intended, doing so is not against the mount rules.

Should I say yes and run with it or say no and under what grounds? As a basic mount, I would be cool with it. I don't think I would let him fight while mounted unless he has some feat or powers like a cavalier. I don't see it as a big deal.By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

Iron Solari (5e Class)

I don't see any reason a gnome Battle Smith artificer from the May UA couldn't ride his iron defender RAW--it's got the appropriate anatomy and is one size larger.

But how is it "Controlled"? Controlled has a specific meaning in mounted combat: A controlled mount acts on the riders turn and does not get attacks, an uncontrolled mount goes on it's own initiative and gets attacks. An intelligent mount can only be uncontrolled, with an animal intelligence mount you get the choice. I don't believe the Iron defender has a free will though, it is always controlled by the Artificer that constructed it.

So if the Iron defender was being ridden, I'm guessing it could be in "Uncontrolled" mode, going after the Artificer, and still get it's regular attack actions--but directed by the Artificer Still essentially controlled. On the other hand--you might want to be in "Controlled" mode if you didn't need the Iron Defender's attack--for instance if you were going to charge with a lance, have the artificer hit, then run away. So my questions are--is my research and assumptions correct as I stated above, and if so, is there any way to switch between controlled and uncontrolled mode?

If you were riding an animal, I'm guessing the "Mode" might be determined by how you control it For the Iron Defender I can't think of any differentiation that would apply except the Artificer's will. Iron Defender UA :.

By 3rd level, the tinkering in your free time has borne you a faithful companion, an iron defender.

This metallic creature resembles a hound, a cougar, a bear, or another four-legged creature of your choice. It is friendly to you and your companions, and it obeys your commands.

A willing creature that is at least one size larger than you and that has an appropriate anatomy can serve as a mount. While you're mounted, you have two options. You can either control the mount or allow it to act independently. Intelligent creatures, such as dragons, act independently. The anatomy is suitable as it resembles a four-legged creature of your choice Gnomes are size Small see PHB 37, Iron Defenders are size medium, see UA 11 and the creature is willing see first quote.

I would rule that the Iron Defender is not an independent creature because it already moves on your initiative and enacts most of the benefits of a controlled mount:.Armies require protection, and someone has to put things back together if defenses fail.

A combination of protector and medic, a Battle Smith is an expert at defending others and repairing both material and personnel.

To aid in their work, Battle Smiths are usually accompanied by a steel defender, a protective companion of their own creation. When you adopt this specialization at 3rd level, you gain proficiency with smith's supplies. If you already have this proficiency, you gain proficiency with one other type of artisan's tools of your choice. Starting at 3rd level, you always have certain spells prepared after you reach particular levels in this class, as shown in the Battle Smith Spells table.

By 3rd level, your tinkering has borne you a faithful companion, a steel defender. It is friendly to you and your companions, and it obeys your commands. See this creature's game statistics in the steel defender stat block. You determine the creature's appearance and whether it has two legs or four; your choice has no effect on its game statistics.

In combat, the Steel Defender shares your initiative count, but takes its turn immediately after yours. It can move and use its reaction on it's own, but the only action it takes on its turn is the Dodge action, unless you take a bonus action on your turn to command it to take the action in its stat block or the Dash, Disengage, Help, Hide or Search action.

If the Mending spell is cast on it, it regains 2d6 hit points. If it has died within the last hour, you can use your smith's tools as an action torevive it, provided you are within 5 feet of it and you expend a spell slot of 1st level or higher. The steel defender returns to life after 1 minute with all its hit points restored. At the end of a long rest, you can create a new steel defender if you have your smith's tools with you.

If you already have a steel defender from this feature, the first one immediately perishes. Might of the Master. Force-Empowered Rend. Deflect Attack.
