Notes

  • The caster's spellcasting modifier is added to both the damage and attack rolls of the summoned Spiritual Weapon.
  • The summoned weapon also gets the caster's proficiency bonus added to its Attack rolls.
  • On the other hand, the weapon action DC of the summoned weapon (used for example by Spiritual Weapon: Spear Spiritual Weapon: Spear to inflict Gaping Wounds Gaping Wounds with Piercing Strike Piercing Strike) is fixed to 12 and does not benefit from the caster's spellcasting modifier.
  • The greataxe, greatsword, and halberd variants of Spiritual Weapon are functionally identical. The spear and trident variants are also functionally identical.
  • The incantation for Spiritual Weapon is Ex Textura, Latin for "from the weave".
