A Cavalier's training focuses on melee and mounted combat. As a result, Cavaliers cannot become proficient with bows or crossbows, and they must rely on their amor or allies to protect them from ranged enemies.

Cavaliers have magical ineptitude. They cannot cast any spells and cannot use wands or scrolls.
