Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking in to the 29th episode of our first level spell series. We’re getting quite a few in there which is great. Today we’re going to be taking a look at the divine favor which is perfect for you paladin’s out there who just love to have a little bit extra holy weight in your weapon for lack of a better term. A divine favor is found in the player’s handbook it is used exclusively by the paladin class. That being said! let’s take a quick look at some mechanics here.
- Casting Time: 1 Bonus Action
- Range: Self
- Duration: 1 Minute (Concentration)
- Components: Verbal and somatic
- School: Evocation
The cast time airs with quite a few the paladin and cleric spells is a bonus action which is just fantastic. The range is self, the duration is 1 minute and it is a concentration spell so you can only have one concentration spell active at a time. The effect at a glance is as followed: Weapon attacks deal an extra 1d4 radiant damage. Pretty simple to understand there. The components are verbal and somatic meaning you have to speak forth an incantation and gesture with one hand. The school unsurprisingly is evocation. Fantastic, with that out of the way let me reveal the full description to you the full flavor of this spell.
With the divine radiance your prayer do empower you. Until this d&d 5e divine favor spell ends, your weapon attacks deal and an extra 1d4 radiant damage on a hit.

Very cool stuff there! honestly 1d4 is super great in later levels but in those early levels it is super great. My goodness depending on your weapon it essentially has the potential to double your damage die which is just great, just fantastic. That being said! i’m sure there’s some utility. But i’m just not too sure i can’t say i’ve ever taken it to anything past maybe a level seven in any case let’s take a look at some alternative uses.
So something i would like to point out, out of the get-go is that it doesn’t specify there has to be a male ace but or a melee weapon attack implying that ranged would also work fine with it. I can really see that or i could really see it is shining as a range attack. It would be incredibly effective against undead as well as the vampires. So very campaign dependent in terms of how useful it is and how badly you’re gonna want on those later levels.
