AUROR: A unique type of ranger; skilled with the bow and possessing an exceptional ability to control the elements of ice and the forces of winter. Though normally mistaken to be an Aurillian priest, she does not share the destructive whims of the goddess nor her followers but on the contrary, follows a strict, solitary edict of an unnamed silver dragon, known to be as her hegemon.
Trained to be agile, she is extremely quick and precise in every move but it proves to be a necessity rather than an advantage as the path of becoming an Auror renders her physically weak. This does not prevents her however, to aid those in need. She is an enigmatic protector of the good and a vicious, cold foe of evil.

-  Gains additional priest spell slots starting at the 14th level of experience.
-  Aura Sensing: At 4th level, the Auror can sense the presence of hidden creatures within her line of sight. This does not however disrupts the 
   invisibility of the creature.
-  Frost Touch: At the 6th level, the Auror adds 2d4 cold damage with every attack. Missile attacks are charged with psionic force, knocking back 
   targets if it fails to save vs. spells. Fire Elementals, Efreets and Salamanders must make a successful save vs. death or be slain instantly.

     damage. The blade lasts for a day.

     arrows last for a day.
   Far Sensing: At the 6th level, the Auror learns to extend her psychic sense over long distances to reveal areas that are otherwise impossible 
   through the use of the naked eye. She gains this ability every 3 levels of experience.

This kit seems horribly broken to me. Giving it better damage/hit bonuses than the archer is pretty iffy on its own, but adding a heap of special resists and abilities on top of that is just overkill. +2d8 damage is more than twice the damage of regular arrows (d6)! Disadvantage "no armour" is pretty much offset by AC bonus, so the only real disadvantage left is the loss of stealth - not exactly a big deal considering what you get in exchange.

And then there's the spells. Just looking at the descriptions - Breath of Cold is 12d12 damage (apparently with no save?) plus a chance of slow as a second level spell? Hoarfrost is an instant (AoE?) kill on fire creatures as a first level spell - in addition to its other effects!? Bloody hell. That is not the kind of power a ranger is supposed to be throwing around (remember, those spells come in addition to already being able to kick all kinds of ass with regular weapons, second only to a pureclass fighter).

I appreciate the attempt to make an "elemental warrior" kind of kit, but it needs balancing, and lots of it.

At the 14th, 16th and 18th level, she will receive additional priest spell slots.

This doesn't work, the kit have always 3 spells by lvl.

I can fix it by myself, but i'm traductor, not conceptor.

Have a good and happy new year, guys :)
