Yes. First, the end condition of the spell (PHB, pg. 239): If the creature ends its turn in a location where it doesn't have line of sight to you, the creature can make a Wisdom saving throw. On a successful save, the spell ends for that creature. So when the creature can no longer see the caster, it may make the save. On a success the effect ends, on a ...

Many of the contrived interpretations here make it barely better than a 9th level, cool-looking, wall of force (a 5th level spell), with a bit of sight/spell blocking added. But if this ...

I've had the same question (why I'm on this page, looking up answers). If I had to think of a mechanical difference between a climb speed and second story work is that second story work lets you climb things such as buildings or a cliff side. Something with handholds even if they're small and difficult. Like a mountain climber. One barely grasping on while ...
