Eldritch blast becomes a multi-attack spell but Agonizing Blast clearly states when you cast EB add your Charisma modifier. You're only casting the spell once so you only get the modifier once. I would assume, at higher levels, when you have the ability to target multiple creatures, you get to choose which one of your eldritch beams becomes "agonizing". ...

You Generally Can't Apply Metamagic Feats to Invocations. Complete Arcane (page 8) However, a warlock’s arcane repertoire is even more limited than that of a sorcerer, and his invocations are spell-like abilities, not spells. (Page 71) Warlocks and other creatures with spell-like abilities might find the following feats useful. Combat ...

Warlock invocations are Spell-Like abilities. Metamagic feats generally don't apply to spell-like abilities. I am away from my books so I don't have the rules reference right now. You could take feats like Maximize Spell-like Ability from complete Arcane, but other then those specific feats you don't really have an option. There is some discussion as to ...

It's one damage roll, it's applied to all characters. How I do this in my games is have the damage rolled before anyone makes their save. So the caster determines the damage before the saves are rolled. Then each character makes their save and the effects are adjudicated after the saving throws are made. Page 196 of the PHB has this rule: If a spell ...

While it may be debatable as to whether this is legal per RAW, it's been pointed out by the designers of the games that they at the very least intended for it to require warlock levels, not character levels. Of course, you can choose to rule otherwise, but note that this makes a 2-level Warlock dip very attractive to any high level character when you can ...

The pre-req is your warlock level, not overall character level. Here's the thing about this, if you interpreted these conditions as character level, basically all classes' descriptions would break down. Here's a few examples: Evocation wizard (phb 117): Beginning at 2nd level.... Wild Magic Sorcerer (PHB 103) Starting at 6th level... Assassin ...

Except where noted in the multiclassing rules, when you gain class features depends on your class level. In this case, invocations are class features that don't have special rules in the multiclassing rules that say otherwise, so you get them according to your class level. Note that in the case of invocations, it's even stronger than "it's not mentioned in ...

You are only Proficient with that pact weapon itself. While you are wielding it generally implies using it. Otherwise you could carry or hold an item/weapon and claim it's bonus's for your main hand because you're "wielding it". If you were granted proficiency with the weapon type, it would state, You are proficient with the weapon type of your pact weapon ...

Answer: {Fighter 1 / Warlock 19} is the Optimal Build (Hat Tip to Strill!) By exploiting Devil's Sight + Darkness cheese available as early as level 4, you can reliably increase your accuracy enough against most foes throughout the game that the Greatsword combined with Great Weapon Master provides the best average damage numbers. Dragonborn Warlocks ...

I don't think you need to search very far - See these quotes from the warlock class description (Complete Arcane P. 5-6) WARLOCK Born of a supernatural bloodline, a warlock seeks to master the perilous magic that suffuses his soul [...] [...] Adventures: Many warlocks are champions of dark and chaotic powers. Long ago, they (or in some cases, ...

Yes, not all warlock powers originate from pacts. Warlock powers can also stem from magical heritages, and in fact, this seems to be common. This is made explicit in Complete Mage, page 7. Warlocks typically claim that [their] proficiency with magic comes from their bloodline - or, in some cases, from a pact made with powerful entities that permanently ...

Since the spells appear and are not written by you, they would be gifts from your Patron and would reappear when you renewed your grimore. The key wording for this interpretation is the word "appear" in the description from Book of Ancient Secrets. I would definitely rule that any spells you wrote in the book would be gone if the book was recreated (thus ...

You would receive a replacement book, so it should have everything in the book that it had before. The new book would contain the previously inscribed rituals.
