The spell would read as follows:
Casting Time: 1 action
Components: V, S
Duration: 1 hour
You touch a willing creature to grant it the ability to see in the dark. For the duration, that creature can see as if the area was brightly lit out to a range of 30 feet, treating areas beyond that as usual
The reason I want this spell is that, as discussed in the link below, most base races have darkvision, which makes the typical darkvision spell not as useful. The idea with this spell is that it would replace the normal darkvision spell.
What can or should be changed to make this a balanced spell? (Changing spell level, changing duration, adding concentration, etc.)
Ideally I'd want to keep the spell level as is.
