    Elemental Channeling is gotten at 6th, and then improves at 8th. I'd delay the upgrade a little bit, or allow the upgraded version when you get it.

    Aspect Of Quintessence is too good, combined with Eldritch Blast.

    Redirect Elements needs to specify what kind of attack roll.

    Overall pretty good though!
    I have a LOT of Homebrew!

    Gaining the second element for channeling at level 8 was less intended as an upgrade to the ability, and more intended as an explanation of how it interacts with the upgrade of the previous ability. I could make it so at level 8 you determine at the start of a day which element you can channel, but at level 10 you can choose as part of the attack.

    How would you suggest changing Aspects interaction with Eldritch Blast without crippling it's reaction with everything else?

    That last part is definitely an oversight on my part.
