Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to this 27th episode of our second level spell series over here at my spellbook. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at an awesome spell that i’ve been super excited for a long time.
Today we’re taking a look at find steed 5e spell this spell is usable only by the paladin and it is found in the good old players handbook so we should all have access to it. Although this spell basically does what you think it does i still think it’s pretty amazing i’ll get into while in a little bit here. But before i do let me show you a brief overview of the mechanics here.
The effect on a glance is has followed: Summon a celestial, fey, or fiend in the form of a steed. It’s intelligence is boosted to 6 and it can understand 1 language. While mounting steed, spells that you cast on yourself also effect the steed. You can communicate by telepathy up to a mile.
- Casting Time: 10 Minutes
- Range/area: 30ft
- Duration: Instantaneous
- Components: Verbal and Somatic
- School: Conjuration
- Attack/Save: None
- Damage/Effect: Summoning
The cast time is 10 minutes, the range is 30 feet but the duration is instantaneous and the components are just verbal and somatic and the school is conjuration which makes sense cuz they’re summoning an animal in terms of the verbal component i think you’ll be freaking hilarious to just say here. In any case let’s check out the full description here so we know exactly what we’re talking about.
Actually, in this 5e spell you do summon a spirit which is assume a form of an unusually intelligent, strong, and also the loyal steed and creating a long-lasting bond with it. it is appearing in the unoccupied place within a specific range, the steed would actually take on a form which you normally chose like warhorse, a pony, a camel, an elk, or else a mastiff. (Your DM may allows the other animals to be summoned like the steeds.)
Basically, the steed has the statistics of as like as you’ve chosen form, even though it is a celestial, fey, or else fiend (your choice) irrespective of its normal type. So, in an addition, if your steed has an intelligence of either 5 or less and then its intelligence will become 6, and also it will gain the ability for understanding one language any of your choice which you do speak regularly.

Basically, your Find Steed 5e serves you like a mount, both in the combat and also out and of course you’ve an instinctive bond with it which actually allows you to fight like the seamless unit. But while mounted on your steed and you can make any type of spell which you can cast that would target only you too target your steed.
Whenever the steed would drop to the 0 hit points, it disappears, leaving behind no physical form. Of course, you can even dismiss your steed at any time like an action and causing it to be disappeared. But in an either cases, casting this spell again would be summon the same steed and also restored to its maximum hit point.
Any how, your steed has been within a mile from you and you can even communicate with it telepathically. You can not have more than a steed bonded by this d&d 5e find steed spell simultaneously. But as an action, you can have a chance to release the steed from its bond at any time and also causing in to be disappeared.
Oh man that is a long one. Very very cool stuff, needless to say a lots of cool upsides to it i like the magic casting ability i think it’s really sweet, i think it’s really hip. I wish this was a ritual cast but you know what whatever can’t really be helped too much in this case.
In any case i really do think that it goes pretty great with most heroes the reason by the way i’m so pumped up about this one is i’m actually gonna write separate articles on mounted combat in particular as well as a breakdown all of the individual choices you can make for this steed so please keep checking for those articles i’ll try and get them out as soon as possible actually because i really don’t like leaving this hanging but you learn in in your future. In any case lets get into some alternative uses here.
So one of the ones i really like is just taking advantage of that telepathy. You might as well cuz it’s there anyway is there’s no material cost for this spell. It’s just time commitment 10 minutes isn’t that big of a deal so you could very easily have your steed which has a really good movement to just scout out dungeons ahead to you since it’s a little bit intelligent you could make an argument that it would be pretty good at navigating most areas so that’s how i would use it.
Outside of that this is a great way of travelling great distances on short lengths of time and if you have a wizard that can cast haste or you yourself can cast haste then that would be even better and there’s gonna be a lot of plans where a beast of burden is gonna be really helpful to you as well whether or not it’s moving heavy caravans, dragging rocks things of that nature.
I would more than doubt ibly allow an oxen to be picked in place of a lot of these other steeds so whether or not you would as a DM let me know down beneath.
