Jump to: navigation, search
Darkbolt
5th-level Evocation
Casting time: 1 action
Range: Self (120 feet)
Components: V, S
Duration: See Below


With a quick invocation you call forth a nimbus of jet-black night around your hands, from which you shoot black bolts of power that trail wisps of terrible darkness.

You unleash seven bolts of darkness from your open palms and fire them at targets within range. You can fire them at one target or several. Make a ranged spell attack for each bolt. On a hit, a target takes 2D8 necrotic damage and must make a Wisdom saving throw. On a failure, the target is stunned until the end of its next turn. Choose one of the following two options when you cast this spell:

  • You can fire all the bolts at once, and all targets must be within 60 feet of each other. When you use this option, the spell's duration is instantaneous.
  • When you cast this spell -and as a bonus action on each of your turns thereafter- you can expend one or two of the bolts to fire them at a target or targets you choose within range. When you use this option, the spell's duration is Concentration, up to 10 minutes.

No matter how many bolts strike a single target, a target can only be stunned until the end of its next turn.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th level or higher, you create one additional bolt for each slot level above 5th.
