I agree with above post, you can by RaW cast gfb off shadowblade but can't twin gfb as it can hit multiple targets, it should be noted that boomingblade CAN be twinned, as it is a single target spell. It should also be noted you should ask your DM if you can take both greenflameblade/boomingblade AND shadowblade, as shadowblade is from xanthars guide, while ...

Minor Illusion can't do this There are two points where this fails: Firstly, minor illusion can't create images of creatures. Its effect is You create a sound or an image of an object within range that lasts for the duration. and objects aren't creatures. Secondly, (and this also applies to silent image which can create images of creatures) illusions of ...

Illusions do not have a creature's features. Illusions are not the creatures represented in them, so they do not have the features or attacks allotted to creatures of that form. Minor Illusion is a cantrip. Being able to replicate an area of effect Paralyze attack with a cantrip is well beyond the power intended by designers. Minor Illusion doesn't create ...

RAW says No, but I believe the rules as intended or at least the rules as practical are that it cannot exert more than 10lbs of force. This is such a poorly worded spell (and has always been). In previous editions, mage hand was just the telekinetic ability to move small objects, but in 5th ed they made it actually take the form of a spectral hand, which ...

TL;DR Neither does the spell description provide any rules that would increase the weight that can be dragged above the weight that can be carried; nor do the rules apply which let characters drag double their carrying capacity. Therefore, the weight detailed in the spell description limits dragging as it does carrying. The spell description does not talk ...

There are no other ways to learn encode thoughts, and nothing short of a wish spell can allow you to cast encode thoughts without already knowing the cantrip. The feats Spell Sniper and Magic Initiate, as well as the class features Pact of the Tome and Magical Secrets, all specify that the selected spell comes from a class’s list. Pact of the Tome: choose ...

Booming Blade is a good cantrip. It deals a lot of damage, and it deals a lot more damage when the target moves. Compared to other damage cantrips, it's just better. If you have +5 Cha and a longsword (wielding in 2 hands) and the enemy refuses to ever move, you will still be dealing more than double the damage you would be dealing with firebolt - and at ...

Nah I don't think it is broken in any way More than half of these changes don't even make sense and make the cantrip worse than a Fire Bolt. But you have to be melee. That's an awful trade-off. This makes me believe the person proposing these changes is not fully aware of optimal builds, power levels and overall balance on homebrews. So, to answer your ...

Short answer, no One, familiars generally don't cast spells. The owner casts the spell and it can be delivered by a familiar. That will be in a different point. Imps, can polymorph and turn invisible, but they don't have the Mending cantrip (unless homebrewed for some reason). Therefore I have to assume you mean that the magic user casts Mending, and it will ...

2 Actions Spell Components are usually the same as the number of Actions to cast a spell. Indeed, it was explicitly so during the Pathfinder 2e Playtest. However, there is no longer a rule linking Components to Actions. Removing Somatic Components still has benefits. You can cast the spell while bound, and you do not provoke most Reactions, notably ...

Willing means the character can choose to move or not. Lacking a specific in game definition, use the vernacular. In this sense willing is: : of or relating to the will or power of choosing : volitional Many effects dictate that the character is moved or must move. Any effect that removes the choice of the character to move or not means the movement ...
