Protection From Evil And Good 5E

Hello everyone! welcome to my blog. From this post we are going to look at one of the most confusingly named spells in the game a kind of sort of it’s not confusing if you understand why. Basically this spell was meant for something else but with 5e and previous editions kind of changed into what it is now. So, today we are going to be taking a look at protection from evil and good spell dnd 5e. It is usable by cleric, paladin, warlock and the wizard then it is found in the lovely player’s handbook. Without further ado let’s go and checkout its mechanics. Before that if you would like to check out our dnd 5e best spells page now you can by the link given.


1st level Abjuration

  • Level: 1st
  • Casting Time: 1 Action
  • Range/Area: Touch
  • Components: V, S, M *(Holy water or powdered silver and iron, which the spell consumes)
  • Duration: 10 Minutes (Concentration )
  • School: Abjuration
  • Attack/Save: None
  • Damage/Effect: Buff (…)
  • Classes: Cleric, Paladin, Warlock, Wizard


Until the spell ends and one of the willing creatures that you do touch has protected against certain types of creatures- such as Aberrations, celestials, elementals, fey, fiends, and also the undead.

Actually this protection 5e spell can grants several benefits. The creatures of such types have some disadvantage on an attack rolls against the target. Of course, the target also can not be charmed, frightened, or else it can not possessed by them.

But there’s possibility, whenever if the target has already been charmed, frightened, or else possessed by that type of creature and also the target has an advantage on any of new saving throw which are against to the relevant effect.

It’s holy water powdered silver and iron which is soothes as its material components. So regarding the material components first and foremost. Because of the way it’s worded you can’t use a hoy symbol to just cast a spell, you need either of the materials themselves or a component pouch.

The reason the component pouch works is, it doesn’t actually specify the gold value so you can kind of get away with in that way and i’d probably recommend doing that. Anyhow, something else worth noting is if you notice this spell has absolutely nothing to do with alignment which is why it is so confusingly named 5e kind of took a step away from alignment and i know why wizards did it and it kind of makes sense because limiting role play and stuff like that.

Now let us take a look at some alternative uses.

Alternative Uses:

So, like a lot of other abrasion spells this is incredibly useful and environments and you don’t have access to armor and you’re forced into the combat or to give you an advantage in combat. I just really think it’s good so gladitorial arena is fights of that nature would really benefit from this.

I would also just cast it on myself. If i knew there is gonna be a fight involving any of those types. So, in places like graveyards or just haunted areas in general. There is a ton of upside to it, especially if you know you’re gonna be encountering those creature types quite frequently.
