Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking to the 8th episode of our first level spell series. Have you ever been druid, ranger who just wanted more than animal friendship, who wanted to take it to the next level with your familiar, in that case i have this spell for you. May i introduce to you the beast bond dnd spell it’s quite a serious step. Usable by the druid and the ranger and it is found in the elemental evil player’s companion. Lets take a look at some mechanics, so we all know what we are talking about.
- Casting time: One action
- Range: Touch
- Duration: 10 minutes (Concentration)
- Components: Somatic, Material and Verbal
- School: Divination
The cast time is one action, the range is touch, the duration is whole 10 minutes and it is a concentration spell by the way. The effect at a glance is as followed: You create a telepathic link with a beast that is friendly towards you. So long as the beast has an intelligence of 3 or lower the spell is successful. In addition to being able to communicate via the link. The beast also gets advantage on attack rolls whenever it is within 5ft of the caster.
The components are Somatic, Verbal and material which make it a holy trinity spell. If you are curious about the material components it is a bit of for laptin clause. The school is surprisingly divination i would’ve thought enchantment but whoever it is think can be it doesn’t matter. Now lets read the full description here.
In this dnd 5e beast bond spell you do establish one telepathic link with a beast that you touch which is friendly to you or else be charmed by you. Actually, the spell fails whenever if the beast’s Intelligence is 4 or more than 4. Until end of the spell, actually the link is active while you and also the best are within the line of sight of the each other. Via a link, the best able to understand your telepathic messages for it, and even it can telepathically communicate some simple emotions and concepts back to you. During the link is active and the best gains advantage on the attack rolls against any creature within 5 feet of you which you can see.

Very cool stuff! That being said you can actually see how the spell directly builds animal friendship and i think its really cool that i work that way. It has this creature that familiar with you taking something liking to and then you decide to build the relationship little bit further by making it battle partner for lack of a better. The duration is 10 minutes but if memories serves animal friendship duration is 24 hours and it is not a concentration spell.
Now what that means is even while beast bond is inactive, animal friendship could serve be active and you can use be span you have two example in the combat in the corner. I think that’s the way to meant to be used then i really do like that way.
That being said let take a look at some alternative uses here. I think it would be park in phenomenal. If you use this to make a with shift for its fire. For example use it on a battle have a spine enemy or scarable location forehand and reload the information back to you through the telepathic. I think that’d be a very creative and very good news of this spell. Especially for the ranger class. I find it to be a very rewarding spell under the race circustances.
