How to learn


  • Class Level 10: Bard (Magical Secrets)


  • All free repeat casts will match the level of the initial cast. For example, if the initial cast is upcast to 6th level to deal 6d10, all subsequent recasts will also deal 6d10.
  • When multiclassing, the subsequent recasts use the spellcasting modifier of the most recent new class rather than the spellcasting modifier that was used for the initial cast of Call Lightning. This may result in an unexpectedly low spell save DC.
  • The incantation for Call Lightning is Perurē, the Latin command "burn/scorch!"
