Level 7: Dark Pact Weapon Retribution

When attacked, you scuttle out of the way like a lizard and make a counterstrike.

Benefit: You gain the slinking riposte power.

Slinking Riposte (Warlock Attack 7)
As you disengage from an opponent who has pushed too close, you leave them with a painful parting gift…

Level 27: 15 + your Charisma modifier acid and poison damage.

Level 9: Summon Warlock’s Ally (Dark)

As a token of your loyalty, the twisted lords of the deep sometimes loan you one of their trained spiders, nearly large as a man. Possessed more of cunning than intellect, it is equally comfortable with biting your foes as with binding them to consume later.

Hunting Spider (Summoned Creature)

Healing Surges: None, but you may spend a healing surge for the hunting spider if an effect allows it to spend one.

Level 11: Hexblade’s Action (Dark)

Legendary Hexblade paragon path feature

As you ascend into the paragon tier, your attacks become more debilitating to your foes. Not only can you cripple them for short periods of time, the ichor that sprays from your blade of tormenting night is more potent.

Level 11: Dark Pact Aspect

Legendary Hexblade paragon path feature

You now have the ability to perceive and move as the underground creatures that serve your nightmarish masters.
