Right now we’re going to be having a look on the one, the one dnd 5e battle caster feat. This attractive feat has discovered within the gamers handbook and to be trustworthy this actually does simply makes multi-class an infinitely simpler and actually helps on quite a lot of courses as nicely. With all that hype being stated let me have a look within the description for you.


So there’s a prerequisite and that’s that you’ve to have the ability to solid at the least one spell and truthfully that is smart. Cuz actually the entire advantages require spells. The outline reads as adopted.

Prerequisite: The flexibility to solid at at the least one spell

You possibly can have the practiced casting spells that are within the midst of fight, studying new strategies which has been grant you the under talked about advantages:

  • You even have a bonus on the Structure saving throws which you can also make to take care of your focus on the spell everytime you take the harm.
  • You are able to do carry out the somatic parts of the spells even at any time when you’ve got the weapons or the defend in both one or each fingers.
  • Each time the hostile creature’s motion provokes a possibility which assault from you, additionally you should utilize your response to solid the spell on the creature, however relatively than making a possibility assault. The spell ought to have the casting time of an motion and in addition have to be goal solely that exact creature.

Oh..man that could be a mouthful and a half. Let’s break that down a little bit bit to make a little bit bit extra sense of it.


At the beginning benefit on structure saves when sustaining spells. That is completely unbelievable, for those who’ve performed a wizard to pay attention it on a excessive degree spell you recognize what it’s like while you get hit by a rogue arrow or somebody sneaks up on you otherwise you simply can’t transfer quick sufficient and also you lose that spell for good. It sucks it is a nice method to forestall that from taking place and it’s particularly helpful for those who’re planning on really being in fight your self.

The second half you may carry out the somatic parts of spells. Even when you’ve got a weapons defend in direction of each. Principally you’re carrying the sword defend, that is extremely helpful as a result of imagine it or not quite a lot of spells have somatic parts. We discovered yesterday really that our eldritch knight was utilizing the defend spell whereas holding this wall really twin wielding.

So for sure our DM at a bone to choose with him over that, he’s grabbing this feat on the subsequent degree we’re going to so it’s form of bouncing hill in that regard. However nonetheless this makes quite a lot of builds actually occur that is very true for the bard. That’s fairly generally a bard, an eldritch knight that are each pretty generally recognized multi courses and each even have the necessity for sword and defend extra occasions than not.

The third half when a creature strikes you may solid a spell as a possibility assault that’s unbelievable. It may also be value noting that doesn’t essentially a spell attacked. It simply have to be a spell focusing on that creature. So it might probably be one thing like bane. One thing that’s a debuff and that truthfully that is in all probability probably the most helpful a part of the feat and one thing that i see individuals use the least i feel we’re simply form of drilled into us that assault of alternative.

Because it attacked however this allows you to make it a spell as nicely. In any case let’s check out my private ideas on it.


By way of who advantages probably the most? it’s fascinating! i need to say eldritch knight’s benefited from it a ton druids can profit it as nicely. Primarily based on their play fashion however extra typically bards will. Along with that hex blade, warlock 1000% advantages from this the warlock class basically takes large benefit of this.

Along with the sorcerer does to some lesser diploma to all of the casters do however the warlocks particularly. Simply because with spells like armor of agathys they discover themselves in fight extra typically than the others would. Along with that you recognize it’s only a typically helpful feat. This associate is very well with eldritch blast as nicely particularly for those who take agonizing blast and a few motion associated invocation and that’s actually good things there.

One other good use of it might be chill contact would have quite a lot of profit, ray of frost have quite a lot of profit there’s a pair cantrips i can consider off the highest of my head that may actually work out nice for this. Even stunning grasp and work take away their response that’d be useful. Mine simply liver might actually work vicious mock and even form of simply you recognize the culprits.


In any case when you have any loopy concepts, any cool makes use of, any combos or any private ideas please put them down beneath within the remark part. I actually take pleasure in studying them and to be trustworthy everybody else testing this text does as nicely. In order that being stated with out additional ado guys have an awesome day and as at all times comfortable casting.
