Hello fighters! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for taking a look at the 7th episode of our fighting style series. This is the tasha’s cauldron of everything fighting style, yeah you guys asked for them here they are and we might as well kick it off with what is likely one of the most anticipated fighting styles blind fighting.
I remember when this was in unearthed arcana, a lot of my fighter main friends were talking about it. So i can only assume a lot of the fighters on my particular website are really looking forward to taking this thing out for a test drive. In any case without further ado let’s take a look at its description.
You have a blindsight with a specific range of 10 feet. Within that range, you could effectively see anything that isn’t behind total cover, even though if you’re being blinded or in the darkness. But moreover, you can see an invisible creature within that particular range, unless the creature successfully hides from you.
Oh man…it’s so good, this of course essentially lends itself to a lot of interesting plays with your warlock on your party. Especially as it relates to the darkness spell, there’s a lot of cool things you can do with it. In any case man this is cool stuff. So essentially blindness doesn’t really matter to you at least as so far as melee combat is concerned.
And In addition to that you no longer really need darkvision which is super cool. Of course it is only 10 feet so it’s not a huge radius but it’s still enough to make a pretty significant amount of difference. If you’re gonna run this taking the dnd alert feat might be a really a good idea just to prevent things from hiding from you or rather sneaking up on you and then getting a surprise turn. So it is rather interesting, i like it. Now let’s get to my personal thoughts on it.
I think this works really well with the warlocks. Especially, if you don’t want to take devil’s sight and you’re more of a hexblade warlock this will certainly let you take advantage of darkness or hunger of hadar based on whichever one you want to risk. In any case i just really like it, i think it’s neat.
Outside of the warlock, i think the monk would extend to gain quite a bit from this as well and through extension any kind of melee based rogue is likely to gain some pretty significant usage out of this, especially if you go with a bug bear rogue you can really start to cheese this.
In addition to that really does anyone without darkvision would likely gain something out of this. Especially when you start to deal with casters using things like fog cloud or anything that obscures vision really. Very interesting stuff. In any case would you like to gain access to archery fighting style 5e! then check it out now.
That being said, let me know what you think of blind fighting down beneath in the comments section. Be sure to mention any thoughts, questions, comments or concerns you have regarding it. That being said, i hope you have a great day and as always happy adventuring.
