You have learned to draw on the power of the moon through meditation and prayer to cast Spells as a Druid does. See chapter 10 for the general rules of spellcasting and chapter 11 for spell lists.

Preparing and Casting Spells

The Tide-Caller table shows how many Spell Slots you have to cast your Spells. To cast one of your Spells of 1st level or higher, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended Spell Slots when you finish a Long Rest.

You prepare the list of Spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the druid spell list. When you do so, choose a number of Spells equal to your Wisdom modifier + your level. The Spells must be of a level for which you have Spell Slots.

The Tide-Caller table shows the number of cantrips known. The Tide-Caller also learns the Torrent Blast cantrip, this cantrip doesn't count towards cantrips known.

You can change your list of prepared Spells when you finish a Long Rest. Preparing a new list of Spells requires time spent during a long rest.

Tide-Caller Cantrip[edit]

Torrent Blast

Evocation Cantrip

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 120 feet

Components: V, S

Duration: Instantaneous

A beam of torrential water bursts toward a creature within range. Make a ranged spell attack against the target. On a hit, the target takes 1d10 cold damage.

The spell creates more than one beam when you reach higher levels: two beams at 5th level, three beams at 11th level, and four beams at 17th level. You can direct the beams at the same target or at different ones. Make a separate attack roll for each beam.


Tide-Callers draws power from the ever flowing stream of water to fuel their special features. Your abilities will cost varying amounts of Depth-Charges depending on their power. As your power grows, you will be able to focus your Depth-Charges into more powerful effects. Depth-Charges are regained by taking a short rest or long rest.

While you have a Depth-Charge available, you may also use them to take place of a spell slot, for example if you cast a 3rd level spell it will consume 3 Depth-Charges.

At first level, you have 2 Depth-Charges gaining more as per the Tide-Caller table above.


  • Tidal Reach - When you Cast a Spell that has a range of 5 feet or greater, you can spend 1 Depth-Charge to double the range of the spell. When you Cast a Spell that has a range of touch, you can spend 1 Depth-Charge to make the range of the spell 30 feet.
  • Twin Seas - When you Cast a Spell that Targets only one creature and doesn’t have a range of self, you can spend a number of Depth-Charges equal to the spell’s level to target a second creature in range with the same spell (1 Depth-Charge if the spell is a cantrip). To be eligible, a spell must be incapable of targeting more than one creature at the spell’s current level. For example, Magic Missile and Scorching Ray aren’t eligible, but Ray of Frost is.
  • Lasting Waves - When you Cast a spell that has a Duration of 1 minute or longer, you can spend 1 Depth-Charge to double its Duration, to a maximum Duration of 24 hours.
  • High Tide - When you Cast a Spell that forces a creature to make a saving throw to resist its Effects, you can spend 2 Depth-Charges to give one target of the spell disadvantage on its first saving throw made against the spell.
  • Silent Waves - When you Cast a Spell, you can spend 1 Depth-Charge to cast it without any somatic or verbal Components.
  • Tide Control - You can create pockets of relative safety within the effects of your Evocation Spells. When you cast an Evocation spell that affects other creatures that you can see, you can choose any number of them.The chosen creatures automatically succeed on their Saving Throws against the spell, and they take no damage if they would normally take half damage on a successful save.

  • Ocean's Bounty - When you roll a 1 on damage or healing die for a spell you make that targets one creature, you can re-roll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1.
