Flames Of Phlegethos DnD 5E Feat

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes. Welcome to my blog post and thank you so much for checking out into the 20th episode of our list of feats 5e series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at one of the coolest feats. Hands-down found in 5e d&d when i read this i could not believe this is real.

I’ve never actually really played tieflings that much why was z this is pretty good. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at dnd 5e feat flames of phlegethos. It is found in the xanathar’s guide to everything handbook and let me tell you this is aimed at a very particular kind of player and i will get that in thoughts section of this article. That being said let’s take a look at the description. So we actually know what we are talking about. Hey haven’t you checked our dnd 5e infernal constitution.


I kind of alluded to it earlier. But there is a prerequisite for this and that is you’ve got to be a tiefling or a feral tiefling. Essentially, if you’re not a full tiefling no advantage to this. Whatsoever just skip right over it. Think about your poor life choices but you don’t get access to it.

The description however reads as followed:

As per this dnd 5e feat you are able to learn to call on the hellfire to do serving your commands. With this dnd flames of phlegethos feat you can gain the below mentioned advantages:

  • With this dnd 5e feat you can enhance your Intelligence or charisma score by 1, almost up to the maximum of 20.
  • Whenever you roll a fire damage for a spell that you cast and also you can reroll any any roll of 1 on a fire damage dice, but of course you should use the new roll, even though if it is another 1.
  • whenever you make to cast a spell which deals with the fire damage and you can cause the flames to wreathe you unless until an end of your next turn. Actually, here the flames do not harm you or else your possessions, and also they would shed bright light out to the 30 feet and also dim light for an additional 30 feet. However while the flames re present, and any type of creature within a distance of 5 feet of you which hits you with the melee attack takes 1d4 fire damage.

Is that not the coolest the feat you’ve ever heard up until this point for sure. It’s gotta be in my opinion it is hands down. Man this is amazing. Okay that being said let’s take a look at the walkthrough so we can kind of get a better picture of what we are talking about.


So, the plus one intelligence/charisma that’s pretty self explanatory. I’d honestly go with whatever closer or with whatever one was more likely to bump up your charisma modifier if they’re both at the same point, i’m just put it whatever one you use more often if you’re a wizard intelligence for about everyone else, charisma is gonna be the one you’re wanting it to be in.

Al right! the second part of this spell is flippin amazing. So reason why i think this is so good so you get to re-roll once. Why this is so is because it really outshines another feat in a lot of ways. Of course i’m talking about magic adept or dnd 5e elemental adept rather now which we covered in a previous episode.

But we rolling damage die is vastly superior to increasing the minimum roll especially in elemental adept case in which its only an increase of one.

So this is a much stronger to pick for the higher damage potential. If that makes sense the math checks out but very cool. Now let’s get into the third proponent and definitely the coolest thematically.

You get drenched in flames. I think that’s crazy good, reason being you get the advantage of bright light and dim light which isn’t of huge consequence to you because your tiefling so odds are you get dark vision but it’ll really helpful your party and i’ll really help you draw aggro as well.

The plus are in the 1d4 damage to melee attacks is also super great that’s essentially thorns. Right but it’s fire damage and should you roll a one on that 1d4 which you will you know about a quarter of the time. You get to reroll it. How cool is that i think that’s incredibly neat.

Hopefully that explains a little bit better. Now for my personal thoughts if you haven’t guessed already. Would you also like to know about animal handling dnd 5e


I love this a hundred percent. I think thematically it’s a very cool very interesting really plays out well for a lot of classes and it can really built it to a character’s backstory and fold in to make them a far more interesting character in the eyes of the world that they’re operating in.

In terms of who benefits most from it and why they benefit? I gotta give this one, you know depending on the play style, i gotta give this one to either yeah such a toss-up actually. So the paladin for sure would benefit from this a lot, simply because of the ability to draw aggro from it and paladin’s contained through most things. So it’s not a huge issue.

The obvious choice would be the eldritch knight. Because they can really combine it with green flame blade 5e and the green flame blade still counts to get that fire effect. Very very cool stuff there. In terms of who else you know, it kind of depends if you’re playing a hex blade warlock this would be very good for that.

I’m not too sure how it would work for a close male erode. I’m assuming it would still work fine but they’d have to be arcane trickster in order to really take advantage of the whole third proponent of being drenched in flames so. I don’t quite know how well that would work i suppose go is taking magic initiate to back it up. But it’s kind of a long build strategy.


In any case rambling aside if you have any crazy ideas for Flames of Phlegethos please let me know down in the comment section as well if you have any cool stories involving it i’ve never played a character with this, i’ve never played with a character who’s you who use this and i’ve never the end anyone who’s used is so.

Your stories are very very beneficial for us right now and everyone else loves reading them as well so if you wouldn’t mind doing that for us i really do appreciate it. Thank you so much guys, thank you for reading in have a great day and as always happy casting and adventuring. You may also like to read about our dnd 5e list of devils
