While it seems to be no real difference between those action types, for this action, there really is. If that is considered a free action, i can only do it during my own turn, otherwise i can drop concentration outside my turn, do as a part of another action or just do it no matter what circumstance i'm in.


"Cease concentration on a spell" is listed as a free action in the Actions in Combat table. As you're aware, this means that you can only do it on your turn.

  • \$\begingroup\$ It may be worth noting that some free actions are allowed off of your turn, and a GM could easily allow this to do the same if it helps the narrative/makes more sense. \$\endgroup\$ – Ifusaso Dec 20 '17 at 5:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Ifusaso Isn't that only true for talking? \$\endgroup\$ – Miniman Dec 20 '17 at 5:33
  • \$\begingroup\$ "Attack of Opportunity Basic Free action" They're definitely a minority, but others exist. \$\endgroup\$ – Ifusaso Dec 20 '17 at 13:41
