Friends 5E Spell

Hello there magic practitioners of all shapes and sizes. Welcome to and thank you for checking out the 12th episode of our cantrip spells series. May i introduce you the infamous friends dnd 5e spell usable by the Bard, Sorcerer, Warlock and Wizard and through extension anyone else with their spell lists and it is found in the good old trusty Players handbook.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the mechanics here. In case if you’ve missed to check out our spells home page then please visit the official page now.


  • Level: Cantrip
  • Casting Time: 1Action
  • Range/Area: Self
  • Components: S, M
  • Duration: 1 Minute (Concentration)
  • School: Enchantment
  • Attack/Save: None
  • Damage/Effect: Buff

The cast time is 1 action, range is self, the duration is 1 minute and it is a concentration spell and the components are somatic and material meaning you do up the gesture and there’s material involved.

It however doesn’t get consumed for this spell, it’s an amount of makeup that’s applied to your face by the way in case you wanted to know that. The school is fairly unsurprising it is enchantment. Also look at our dnd 5e fast friends.

The effect: It’s got a point form here select one creature, you do have the advantage on the charisma checks regarding that creature. Whenever the spell ends, then the creature shall become aware that you made this spell. You may also interested in our dnd 5e animal friendship.


In this Friends 5E Spell for a specific duration, you have an advantage on all the charisma checks directed at one creature any of your choice which is not hostile towards you. But whenever the end of this dnd spell, the creature would realize that you have used magic for influencing its mood and also become hostile towards you.

Actually, a creature would prone to violence might attack you. Another creature might also seek retribution in other available ways (it might be at the DM’s discretion), also depending on the nature of your interaction with it.

So, i can see why people are hesitant to pick this just because after the minute the individual becomes aware. But i do feel like there are ways that this could work. It’s not terrible for looking at it for a cantrip it’s not really that bad. Really good for social games.

Now let’s take a look at some alternative dnd 5e friends uses from below.

Alternative uses

You could definitely use it in terms of bartering which i feel like a lot of people would. Particularly in tows that you’re just passing through, you don’t really plan on lendering. Outside of that it could really help get you out of a bind when it comes to a city guard for example it would really help. Outside of that i think it would pair really well with any disguise magic like they’re like masks of many faces would be a great pairing with this. Do check out our prestidigitation 5e.

Anyone with proficiency and it was a disguised kit as well would be really would gain quite a bit from this spell. It would depend on their campaign and i suppose but for the most part, if you have a way to change your appearance then there’s no real downside to using it. This is what does the friends spell do in dnd 5e? and how does this spell work? Also read charm person 5e.
