How to learn



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


Granted by the following items:


  • Unlike the tabletop version, the magical orbs can only function as one light source instead of having the option to spread them out in a chain of four separate lights. They also have the option to move them each turn as a Bonus Action.
    • Additionally, the combined light has a far greater Area of Effect than the tabletop version which instead only has a 3 m / 10 ft radius of dim light.
  • Dancing Lights can be cast without breaking stealth (Confirmed for Drow race version)
  • Dancing Lights has two incantations: Fiat Lux, Latin for "let there be light", and Sol Invictus, Latin for "unconquered sun".
