I am looking for ways to cause my opponents to be vulnerable to the damage I deal in combat.

I am not interested in ignoring resistance, I am only looking to cause the vulnerability condition.
Ideally I would like it to apply to any damage type I am dealing in the moment, however at this point any type of vulnerability will do, as I have not found any on my own.

What are some of the spells, and class/racial abilities or magic items that create this condition in others? Oficial WotC content only please. (no Unearthed Arcana)

    \$\begingroup\$ It is similar but not really a duplicate and the other question has no answers and not enough detail. Ill add details to this one. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 11, 2021 at 5:12

    \$\begingroup\$ I will say that I'm unsure whether that other question should have been closed (though it mentioning elemental bane doesn't make its criteria very clear) since we have numerous open questions that are answered by lengthy lists: Example #1, Example #2, Example #3, Example #4, Example #5, Example #6, and plenty more. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 11, 2021 at 5:17

    \$\begingroup\$ I’ve started a community wiki answer. Ideally, people who wish to respond would just add their findings to that answer instead of creating more answers, since the contents of any additional answers will be added to it anyway. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 11, 2021 at 5:25
