Thaumaturgy 5E Spell

Hello spellcasters of all shapes and sizes! welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 38th episode of our cantrip series. Today we’re going to be talking about probably one of the most used cleric spells in the game we’re talking to a thaumaturgy spell dnd 5e found in the players handbook and usable once again exclusively by the cleric class and anyone with access to the spell lists. With that in mind let’s take a quick look at some of the mechanics here.


  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 30ft
  • Duration: 1 Minute
  • Components: Verbal
  • School: transmutation

The cast time is one action, the range is a modest 30 feet, the duration is one minute and the effect is as followed: You can create magical effects within range such as make your voice three times louder, manipulate flames cause a harmless tremor, make a sound, when put in close a door, unlocked or open or close unlocked windows/doors. Change the appearance of your eyes.

The component is only verbal and the school is transmutation. With that all out of the way let’s take a look at the full effect description here. so we’re almost on the same page and you can take advantage of all the flavor this spell has to offer.


In Thaumaturgy 5E spell you’ve manifested a minor wonder, a sign of supernatural power, within a range. Within a range you’ve created one of the following magical effects..check them now.

  1. In Thaumaturgy dnd 5e your voice would boom up to three times as more louder as normal for a minute.
  2. You do cause flames to flicker, brighten, dim, or change color for a minute.
  3. You do cause harmless tremors in the ground for 1 minute.
  4. You also make an instantaneous sound which would originate from any you’ve chosen point within a range, like the rumble of thunder and the cry of a raven or the ominous whispers.
  5. Also you instantaneously cause an unlocked door or else the window to fly open or else slam shut.
  6. You alter the appearance of your eyes for a specific duration normally the duration was 1 minute.

But if you cast this d&d Thaumaturgy spell for many times and you can have a chance to have them up to three of its 1 minute effects would be active at a time, and also you can even dismiss such an effect like an action.

Al right wow! so a lot of great things there tons of flavor realistically your imagination is the only limit here. That being said, lets take a look at some of the alternative uses i was able to come up with.

Alternative Uses

You could use the sound, the music, the ominous whispers as a way to confuse or mislead opponents. Alternatively you could change the color of your eyes to terrify an opponent. Giving you advantage on intimidation checks, then possibly persuasion as well given on the context. That being said, i’m sure there are many many more uses for this spell.
