Hello spellcasters! Today, we’ll be discussing the creepy and creepy warlock-related spell known as arms of Hadar. This spell is intended for spellcasters that want to channel the power of the warlock class. Anyone else with access should shout to the magic initiates. Let’s take a look at the mechanics. Before we get started, let me make a quick announcement: If you haven’t yet checked out our dnd5e spells by school Then, click the link below.


  • Level: 1
  • Casting Time 1 Action
  • Area/Range Self (10 ft.)
  • Components: V, S
  • Duration: Instantaneous
  • School: Conjuration
  • Attack/Save: STR Save
  • Damage/Effect Necrotic (2d6+1d6 at each spell level higher than 1st)

You’re damaged die will be 2D6+ an additional die 6 per spell slot level above first. It would cost a grand total of 3d6 to burn a second-level slot. Casting takes one action and the range is 10 feet around yourself. The casting time is InstantaneousThe saving throw, which is strength-based, has components that are somatic and verbal. You must be able to use one hand to gesture and then speak an incantation. The damage type is conjuration. Necrotic. Let’s take another look at the description. This spell’s essence can be felt.


The power of a hadar and the dark hunger can be invoked. Even the Tendrils from dark energy could erupt out of you and batter any creatures that are within 10ft of you. Every creature within that area must be capable of making a strength saving throw.

If a failed save is made, a target takes 2d6 damage. Even if it does so, the reaction will not be taken until the next turn. The creature does not take any effects if it makes a successful save, but can take half the damage.

Other uses

You can use all the d&d5e magic spell arms hadar with your DMs permission, but i believe these are safe to assume. First, let me mention that the reaction-stealing ability can be used for escape from situations that are in mortal peril. This ability is very useful for precarious gishcasters or squishycasters. It can be used as an OE to help with this.

Now that I’m actually reading it, I feel like this spell could be very effective in intimidating someone.
