I want to abuse the Wish spell by casting Nystul's magic aura on enemies to make them count as plants for spell effects and then use Blight for instakills.

Is "targets a willing creature" a spell requirement ignored by the Wish spell?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to the stack, take the tour when you have a moment. I've closed this as a duplicate, we have something of a canonical question for what counts as a requirement that can be ignored with wish, I think that should answer your specific question here. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 5, 2022 at 1:38

    \$\begingroup\$ Maximising 8d8 with a 9th level spell is not a great use of wish \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I'll also note that the Mask effect of Nystul's Magic Aura would not change how Blight works anyway; Blight is not a spell that detects creature types, and Mask specifically applies to "spells and magical effects that detect creature types". It doesn't actually make them a plant for any other purpose, so they won't take extra damage. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 9, 2022 at 6:16
