So according to the wonders of multiclassing, it is possible to take levels in both Sorcerer (granting us sorcery points) and Warlock (giving us Pact Magic) which creates the handy combo of turning your unused Pact Magic spell slots into sorcery points thanks to the "flexible casting" ability; PHB101.

Now imagine you start your day as a 2nd level Sorcerer, 2nd level Warlock. You could effectively take 4 hours out of the start of your day in meditation and short rest (4 short rests) to convert each of your 2 pact magic warlock spell slots into 8 sorcery points. Anything sound wrong with this?


You cannot keep them as sorcery points, because:

You can never have more sorcery points than shown on the table for your level. (PHB 101)

But you can make spell slots out of them, as

The created spell slots vanish at the end of a long rest. (PHB errata v1.0)

So yes, you can "stack up".

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Thanuir I disagree with JC that that is a valid interpretation of what is written there. The problem is that the relevant passage here is not from the multiclass rules, but from those of flexible casting. Not mentioning something in one place does not overwrite mentioning it in another. He is just backpedaling out of something they did not phrase properly or turned out to be controversial. \$\endgroup\$ – Szega Dec 10 '18 at 9:32

    \$\begingroup\$ I have no opinion on the correctness of the interpretation, but figured that addressing the tweet might improve your answer. Up to you. \$\endgroup\$ – Tommi Dec 11 '18 at 6:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ This is the basis for a cheesy build known as coffeelock, which takes multiple short rests in a row instead of taking a long rest in order to store up a large number of created spell slots. \$\endgroup\$ – Ettina Kitten May 12 at 2:58
