How to learn



(Character level is the sum of all class levels for a multi-classed character.)



  • Illusion School Wizards can cast a special version of Minor Illusion as a Bonus Action.
  • Outside of combat, causes most NPCs to walk towards the illusion and surround it. This can be particularly deadly as a preparation for a first-strike ambush if you lure a number of potential targets into a small area, then hit them all with a Fireball.
  • During combat, this causes enemies to turn towards the illusion.
  • Springs traps if cast on top of the trap
  • Placed on top of a vent it prevents gas from coming out
  • Will disappear if you concentrate on another spell, but will not break concentration for existing spells
