At Higher Levels: However whenever you cast this Arms of the Hadar 5E Spell by using its spell slot of 2nd level or else higher and the damage would be increased by 1d6 for each slot above the 1st level.
Very cool stuff from a thematic standpoint i am in a love with this spell. I love the appeal of shadow surrounding you only have these tendrils shoot out and grab and pull and slap around enemy is super cool stuff. With that out of the way let’s take a quick look at some alternative uses.
Spell Lists: Warlock
Naturally all these d&d 5e spell arms of hadar uses upto your DMs approval but i feel like these ones are pretty safe to assume. Firstly i would like to point out that you can kind of abuse that reaction stealing ability i guess and use it to flee situations where you are mortal danger. This works really well for those squishy casters out there as well as those gish casters who for whatever reason are finding themselves in a rather precarious spot. The fact that it is a OE helps out for that as well.
Now that i’m actually reading this i feel like if you’re to use this in a context where you were trying to intimidate someone it would definitely want an advantage, this is probably one of the more flavorful spells we’ve covered up until late and i really like it, i’ve had some success with it in the past and it’s just fantastic. Have a look at hellish rebuke 5e.
