How to Learn



  • Granted by Staff of Interruption
  • Even a failed Counterspell will feed the Arcane Wards of Wizards Specialized in Abjuration
  • In 5e, an upcast Counterspell will automatically counter a spell if the spellslot level matches or exceeds the to-be-countered spell. Couterspelling a spell of a higher spellslot level requires the counterspelling caster to make an ability check, with a DC of 10 + (Level of to-be-countered spell). The spellcasting ability is added to the d20 roll of the counterspelling caster.
    • It is not certain at this time if this mechanic was identically implemented in BG3.
