# What are the magic items that use charisma / boost charisma

I'm trying to find relics that influence or are influenced by Charisma, but I cannot seem to find any.

What are the magic items that use Charisma or boost Charisma?

The Tome of Leadership and Influence, when read, permanently boosts Charisma and maximum Charisma by 2.

The Star card (from the Deck of Many Things) can boost your Charisma by 2, to a maximum of 24.

As far as I can determine, there are no other items that affect your Charisma.

Items that are affected by your Charisma is more complicated. There are a few magical items whose use involves making a Charisma check or a Charisma saving throw, but this isn't really using your Charisma as such. However, if you are a Charisma-based spellcaster, every item that mentions "your spellcasting ability" is referring to your Charisma. There are far too many of these to list.

• Is there not a magic item that sets it to 19, like the Headband of Intellect does for Intelligence and the rest of those items? – Javelin May 31 '17 at 0:08
• @Javelin You'd think so, wouldn't you? But no, there's not. We even have a question about it. – Miniman May 31 '17 at 0:13

Probably the most common use for charisma in items is with sentient weapons. Charisma checks are used when the item doesn't agree with its usage by the wielder and can try to (essentially) charm the wielder if the wielder can't come to an agreement.

• Charisma is used by sentient weapons. – Jim B May 30 '17 at 20:02
• This is not what I was looking for, but useful information nonetheless. From a source I can read the following: A sentient item has a will of its own, shaped by its personality and alignment. If its wielder acts in a manner opposed to the item’s alignment or purpose, conflict can arise. When such a conflict occurs, the item makes a Charisma check contested by the wielder’s Charisma check. – Inferno IV May 31 '17 at 9:42
• Yes unfortunately I don't think I can quote the books without violating copyright (although if that's wrong I'll amend my answer) but there is a little more to it. – Jim B May 31 '17 at 13:17
