Spiritual Weapon 5E

The spiritual weapon is a powerful attack that can be used as a bonus action, as long as you cast it during your turn. It can also be cast as a cantrip, which makes it a convenient bonus action attack. As long as the caster knows how to cast it properly, it deals 1d8+Wis damage every turn. This article will cover the basics of this attack, from its Spell level to its range, resistance, and effect.

Spell level

The Spiritual Weapon 5E spell creates a floating spectral weapon that can be used to strike a target. It has a duration of 20 feet and normally deals 1d8+spellcasting ability modifier damage. It can also be used to make melee attacks. This spell can be cast by clerics, but clerics must use this ability in a specific place. This spell can only be used on creatures within 5 feet of the cleric.

You can customize your spiritual weapon by determining the type of race and lineage your character belongs to. If you're a dwarven cleric, your weapon may be a dwarven sword, while a gnome might have a phantom force. For other races, you can choose the symbol of the deity to represent your character. You can also add a color-coded sentiment to your spiritual weapon to match your character's personality.

If you've chosen a spiritual weapon as your attack spell, you can also make it a movement action. While it's not possible to change targets during a spiritual weapon spell, you can still direct the weapon to a new target as part of a move action. You can also continue attacking the previous target during that round. If you choose to use a ranged attack, you can make several attacks at once. The range of the spell is also the reason you should switch targets.

The most important feature of the Spiritual Weapon is its bonus action potential. It can be cast in a single turn and grants oned8+Wis every time you use it. This weapon can also reach creatures up to 60 feet away, so it's not the best choice for attacking flying creatures that fly. If you're a druid, this weapon is probably not the best option. In the 5E world, there are about 800 distinct animals, ranging in Challenge Rating from 0 to 20.

A sorcerer with a Spiritual Weapon 5e can lead with the Flame Bolt, Flame Burst, or Witch Bolt. They can also use the Cult Fanatic or War Priest. As long as you have the action economy boost, this weapon can effectively wear down bosses. Alternatively, a bard with a Spiritual Weapon can lead with Vicious Mockery, Tasha's Hideous Laughter, or Bestow Curse.


The range of a Spiritual Weapon is the same whether it is used as a spell or as a melee attack. If the target is within 5 feet, the caster can predict its direction, but if it is out of sight, they cannot accurately draw a line of sight to the weapon's location. Generally speaking, a Spiritual Weapon can reach a range of up to 30 feet. A caster can use the range of a spell to move it more than 20 feet, but the range of the spell is still limited.

A Spiritual Weapon can be cast by a cleric focused on an assault or a weapon. The spell creates a phantom weapon within the range of the caster, which deals power damage to the target. This spell is highly effective when used as a single attack, but it also pairs well with other spells that require concentration to cast. The range of a Spiritual Weapon is relatively short and it can be useful for combat.

As a spell, Spiritual Weapon does not require the caster to be physically present to cast. The weapon will float at the caster's mental direction. This means that the caster does not need to hold the weapon, and even touching the weapon defeats the purpose of the spell. It also annihilates any benefit a magical weapon attack provides. In 5e, it can be used in combat to defeat an enemy.

Another benefit of a Spiritual Weapon is its flavor. The spectral hand attacks the enemies within five feet and deals 1d8+spellcasting ability modifier damage. If you have a second-level cleric, you can cast the spell on another, but it will deal only half as much damage. As a result, it can be dangerous to use a Spiritual Weapon to fight a demon. So, when casting it on a demon, be sure to use caution and be careful not to make a mistake!

Another great benefit of the Spiritual Weapon 5e range is its reaction. The full spirit that goes into it will kill a creature within five feet of the target. Unlike other spells, the hammer can be customised to match your character's emotion, so that the weapon works best with the right kind of attack. The range is the maximum range of a Spiritual Weapon. The range is important, because it determines how much damage you can deal.

Spell resistance

If you're trying to decide whether to use a spiritual weapon, you need to consider what types of creatures it can target and how much damage it can deal. A spiritual weapon can't be affected by physical attacks, but it is susceptible to spells such as dispel magic, sphere of annihilation, and rod of cancellation. The first time you strike a creature, your spiritual weapon checks against spell resistance. If it succeeds, it's the full effect of the spell.

A spiritual weapon can be a longbow or a dagger that has a silvery outline. The damage it deals is increased by 1d8 for every two levels above second. It does not occupy space, and it always strikes from the caster. The spiritual weapon also has one attack per round and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. However, if you have a level higher than your current weapon, you'll have a better chance of surviving a melee attack.

A spiritual weapon has an attack bonus equal to its base attack bonus, plus your Wisdom modifier. This weapon can also damage creatures with damage reduction, as well as strike incorporeal creatures without a miss chance. Another benefit is that it always strikes from the user's direction. Unlike other magical weapons, it gets no flanking bonus and does not affect combat actions. It also returns to its user's sight and direction when used, and can heal up to three additional parties while being used to ward off evil spirits.

While there are creatures that force resistance to work, spells are more effective against golems. In Pathfinder, a god-like creature like a troll will bypass this spell, and it will deal force damage. If you have the resources to spend a little more money on a spiritual weapon, you can purchase one. There are a few different types to choose from. This article discusses the differences between these two types of damage spells.

A cleric's weapon is based on his alignment. Those who aren't clerics without deities get a weapon based on their alignment. However, clerics without deities can create a spiritual weapon of any alignment. A spiritual weapon has a maximum range and is a versatile weapon. For this reason, it's a great choice for a cleric or sorcerer.

Spell effect

You've just learned how to cast a spell effect of a spiritual weapon in DnD, and you've made a successful attack with one. Your spell allows you to attack just about anything in the room, including flying creatures. It has both a somatic and verbal component, and you can make more than one attack per round. The spell also works as a move action, but it has no effect while the weapon is restrained. It cannot attack an unconscious target.

A spiritual weapon works by floating at the caster's mental direction, and is not a physical object. You may not hold the weapon, and touching it will defeat the point of casting the spell. This negates the benefits of using a magical weapon attack. Therefore, a spiritual weapon should only be used by characters who possess strong personalities. You must consider this before casting a spiritual weapon. For more details, see the spell effect of a spiritual weapon in 5e.

The Spell effect of a spiritual weapon depends on the caster's base attack bonus. If you have a high base attack bonus, you can use a spiritual weapon to strike multiple targets at once. If your attack bonus is low, you can use this spell as a free action. If you are a cleric who is capable of casting third-level spells, then this spell is a great choice.

The Spell effect of a spiritual weapon increases by 1d8 for every two slots you have available. It has a range of 60 feet, and you can attack just about anyone inside the room, including flying creatures. It can also move twenty feet per turn. The range of the spell is dependent on the character's level. The spell can be cast while holding nothing, but it won't work if you're restrained.

A spiritual weapon is very useful in a combat setting, but it doesn't give you any means of interactivity with the physical object. Rather, you can use the spell to move it around and attack any creatures that come near it. A spiritual weapon also has the advantage of leaving you with a free action after use and requiring no concentration to use. This spell also pairs well with Hold Person, Spirit Guardians, and Insect Plague.
