Fly DnD 5E Spell

Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out 25th episode of our 3rd level spell series. Today we have a very special and super useful spell in store for us we’re looking at dnd 5e fly spell and i love this spell so much because it’s so easy to explain to people it’s a one word description pretty much and i don’t know as a guy who explains spells everyday.

It’s pretty refreshing to have a nice easy one every once in a while, you know what i mean. Anyways fly spell 5e is usable by the sorcerer, warlock, wizard and the artificer. As so far as to say it’s in their spell lists. It is found in the glorious players handbook so we should all have access to it. Now without further ado let’s take a quick look at its mechanics here and just flesh out what makes it so great.


  • Casting Time: 1 Action
  • Range: Touch
  • Duration: 10 minutes (Concentration)
  • At Higher levels: Target 1 Additional creature for each slot level above 3rd.
  • Components: Verbal, Material and Somatic
  • School: Transmutation

The effect at a glance is as followed: A willing creature gains a fly speed of 60ft. The cast time is one action, the range is touch, the duration is 10 minutes and it is a concentration spell. At higher levels you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 3rd.

The components are the holy trinity verbal, material and the somatic. If you’re curious about the material component, it is a wing feather from any bird. The school is transmutation which does make a lot of sense. Now let’s take a look at its full description and discuss the spell a little bit further.


As per this dnd 5e fly spell you can touch a willing creature. The target shall gain a flying speed of the 60 feet for a duration. Whenever the spell ends, the target shall fall if it is still aloft, unless it can be stopped the fall.

At Higher Levels: Whenever you cast this spell by using a spell slot of 4th level or else higher, you can even target one additional creature for each slot level above 3rd.

Very cool stuff! It’s really simple once again super easy you touch a person and they can fly 60 feet. When the spell ends however they plummet to the ground like a fool. Unless of course they have something like feather fall which we have definitely done an article on so feel free to check that out. Now let’s take a look at some glorious alternative uses here.

Alternative Uses

So one of my favorite ways to use this spell is actually using it to punch up. What i mean by this is there are going to be altercations in which it looks like you are at a significant disadvantage but you know what really helps out when you’re going against a barbarian with a club the ability to fly 60 feet in the air and pelt him with gold old eldritch blast. So i mean you know i really do like it.

Another great use is using this to help balance certain encounters much in the same way as punching up. If you’re dealing with a huge amount of enemies that don’t really have great range capability. Then this is a perfect spell to help you out and of course in larger planning related schemes there’s a strong argument to be made for having this kind of insane three-dimensional movement would be super helpful.
