Eldritch Blast 5E Spell

Hey there spell practitioners of all shapes and sizes! Thank you for checking out the spell book and lets talk with the ninth installment in our cantrip series the one, the only dnd 5e spell eldritch blast usable only by the warlock class and anyone can have access with their spellbook found in the player’s handbook honestly a staple of the class. Now let’s take a look at some mechanics here.


  • Damage: 1st:1d10, 5th:2d10, 11th:3d10, 17th:4d10
  • Casting Time: 1 Action
  • Range: 120ft
  • Duration: Instantaneous
  • Saving Throw: AC
  • Components: Somatic and Verbal
  • School: Evocation
  • Damage Type: Force

So you started with 1d10 and it increases at level 5, 11 and 17 for a capstone total of 4d10. The cast time is one action, The range is an impressive 120 feet, the duration is instantaneous, the saving throw is AC, the components are Somatic and Verbal meaning you have to gesture with your hand and speak.

The school is Evocation and the damage type is the crown jewel of damage types it is force damage ladies and gentlemen. All right now let’s take a quick look at the actual description here.


A beam of the crackling energy would streak towards the creature within a specific range. It makes a ranged spell attack against to the target. So, on a hit, the target would take 1d10 force damage.

At Higher Levels:

This Eldritch Blast 5E Spell creates more than one beam whenever you reach higher levels with this spell; two beams at 5th level, 3 beams at 11th level and also 4 beams at 17th level. Any way you can direct the beams either at the same target or else at the different ones. Do make a separate attack roll for each and every beam.

Do you know about lightning arrow 5e spell

Super cool stuff there! I would also homebrew it where if they were only targeting one enemy i would make it so in real life just making one attack roll like just one big elder blast essentially just a same time 30 gameplay like making four tackles for a cantrip is kind of i don’t know.

Pulling in the end additional a couple damaged on top of that. She’s a little bit excessive to me but once again up to your DM. Let’s take a look at some alternative uses here.

Alternative Uses

It’s tricky eldritch blast on its own doesn’t have a whole lot of alternative uses outside of combat. It really doesn’t like it’s strictly a damage spell right! and force damage doesn’t provide a whole lot of flavor. That being said with use of meta magic and warlock unifications there’s definitely a lot you can do with it between pulling and pushing your enemy doubling the amount of them and getting some bananas range out of this thing like borderline game breaking range.

Wrap Up

I’d like to hear from you guys down beneath in the comments though about your stories with it and your uses for it. Because i really i could seek your and list them all out but there’s way too many combinations for me to really go overall them what’s your so.

I’d rather learn from you guys firsthand kind of what works best what its kind of man what doesn’t actually work because of the way it’s worded things like that. So if you want to comment down below for that i would be super grateful with that in mind i hope you guys have a great day and i will see you next time.
