How to learn



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

Granted by the following items:


  • The blade can be equipped in either the main hand or the off hand, and can be unequipped, but must stay on the spellcaster's person. The blade has no Weapon Actions tied to it other than basic attack.
  • The blade uses the spellcaster's Spellcasting Ability (Wisdom for Druids or Charisma for Tieflings) for Attack rolls instead of Strength or Dexterity, but as with most spell attacks no modifier is added to the Damage Roll.
  • When the spell ends, the caster will automatically re-equip the weapon they had equipped when they cast the spell, without costing an Action Point.
  • If the caster is wielding a Light weapon in their main hand, or if the caster has the Dual Wielder feat, the blade appears in the offhand. Otherwise it appears in the main hand.
  • The incantation for Flame Blade is Para Bellum, Latin for "prepare for war".
