I know you, Eisdrachen, don’t like the Eldritch Knight and was working on a remake of the class utilizing health in this thread. What about these as changes for the EK?
As per the Player’s Handbook, except as follows.
Eldritch Knights can switch one spell on their spell list each day by spending an hour meditating on their magical power. An Eldritch Knight who does not obtain a full night’s rest (the long rest is interrupted) cannot switch their spell.
Eldritch Knights can also choose spells from one additional school in addition to Evocation and Abjuration.
The Eldritch Knight’s Bonded Weapon functions as an Arcane Focus. An Eldritch Knight can cast spells with somatic components while wielding their bonded weapon as if they had a free hand.
Another change I saw suggested by someone but that I’d be hesitant to implement was this:
War Magic now does the following. You can cast one cantrip in place of an attack as part of the attack action. You can only replace one such attack per turn. This replaces the default EK's ability. Improved War Magic functions the same way.This would be a pretty hefty damage increase if you think about it though.
