I currently have a Pact of the Blade warlock, and recently came across a dancing sword (a rapier). I am considering making it my pact weapon, but there is still a minor inconvenience. While the dancing sword’s ability to fly up to 30 feet is a nice ability to attack at a distance, the pact weapon of a warlock is stated in the PHB to disappear if further than 5 feet from the user for a minute.
Is there a way to circumvent this, and keep it from disappearing if it's far away for more than a minute?
I am considering finding either:
- A way to prevent the weapon from disappearing after 1 minute as long as it is more than 5 feet from me
- A way to re-summon the weapon back into my hand without using up an action
I am considering setting a trap with the weapon - Allowing it to lay hidden until an enemy walks past it, then command it to attack.
If neither work out, I think I’m capable of living with it. A minute of combat (apparently 10 rounds) does seem like plenty of time to fly the weapon back.
