Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for tuning into the 42nd episode of our cantrip series. May i introduce to you the eagle eye of dnd 5e true strike spell this cantrip is usable by the Bard, sorcerer, warlock and the wizard and of course through extension anyone else with access to their spell lists, found in the players handbook so everyone should have access to this spell. Let’s take a quick look at some mechanics here.
- Level: Cantrip
- Casting Time: 1 Action
- Range/Area: 30 ft
- Components: S
- Duration: 1 Round (Concentration)
- School: Divination
- Attack/Save: None
- Damage/Effect: Foreknowledge
The cast time is one action, the range is not really that great but still 30 feet, the duration is one rounded and this is a concentration spell. On your next turn you gain advantage on your first attack roll against the target. the components are just somatic, so you just as a gesture of one hand and the school is a divination. Now let’s take a quick look at the full description here just so we’re all aware of the flavor and wording of this spell.
As a true striker in dnd 5e spell you do extend your hand and also you point one of your fingers at a specific target in a range. Probably your magic grants you the brief insight into a target’s defenses. On your upcoming turn, you gain an advantage on your initial attack roll against the target, it is provided which this dnd 5e spell has not been end yet.
Very cool stuff, very neat circumstantially very powerful. I do think in the fact that as an action definitely hurts that is a good choice and the fact that this is a concentration certainly doesn’t help it out either. But let’s take a quick look at some alternative uses so we’re all aware that i can have use.

The best alternative use i could think of was to take advantage of the fact that it doesn’t have to be seeing it on a creature. It can be an object and it’s especially effective when that object doesn’t either or is incredibly important such as an archery match between you and rival for example or even a item that needs to be destroyed. This is a very good spell circumstantially and in the right kind of campaign i could see this actually being quite useful.
That being said, if you have any alternative uses or any cool stories involving true strike i would really like to hear them down in the comments and as would everyone else reading this article in to. That being said! i hope you all have a great day and as always happy casting.
