Spell Progression

When a new arcane trickster level is gained, the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as though they had gained a level in whatever arcane spellcasting class gave them access 3rd-level arcane spells. If the character has more than one applicable arcane spellcasting class, they must pick one to improve.

Pilfer Magic: At 1st level, once per day, the arcane trickster can dispel a magical effect on a target and receive statistical bonuses from it. The ability is equivalent to a dispel magic that affects the most powerful effect currently on the target. If successful, the effect vanishes from the target and the arcane trickster receives +2 bonus to attack rolls and all saving throws for the next ten rounds. They can use this ability twice per day at 5th level and three times per day at 9th level.

Sneak attack: At every even-numbered level (2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and 10th), the arcane trickster gains an additional +1d6 to their sneak attack damage. This ability stacks with sneak attack dice from other classes.

Impromptu sneak attack: Once per day a 3rd-level arcane trickster can use this ability to deny an enemy their Dexterity bonus to AC for one round, allowing the target to be sneak attacked. The arcane trickster gains an additional daily use of this ability at 7th level, and again at 9th level.
