Small thread of shadows:
In my review, I’m going to tell you about shadow blade 5e. This is an illusion spell from the fifth edition D&D game. With this spell, you are able to create small threads of shadow throughout the game. You then use those threads to build a large sword that appears to be a solidified shadow sword that you are able to wield until the end of the effect. Here’s how it works.
When you cast shadow blade 5e it will appear as if you are wielding a two-handed mace in your hand. If you have high charisma, you will have no trouble raising this to a one-handed mace. Once this has been done the shadow blade will glow with dim light and remain at full strength until the duration of your spell ends. While the sword is glowing a shimmering red line of shadows will travel around the blade. You will notice that while the sword is glowing red you are also wearing some sort of defensive armor, leather, or metal.
Weakness of shadow blade 5e:
The main weakness of the shadow blade 5e for a wizard is that it relies on the element of shadow to do its work. Warlocks tend to have more trouble dealing with this type of magic since their nature as the party leader often makes them the target of the illusion. In order to defeat a warlock, you must first distract him long enough to allow your other party members to attack him. A good strategy for a warlock is to have several wizards that know different illusion spells cast at the same time. If you, do you will have very little success against your enemy.
Dealing with thunder damage:
One of the main things that are going to affect the success of your cast is the type of spell that you cast. Most of these spells will be able to knock your enemies down but there are some that can deal major damage. For this reason, the shadow blade 5e most commonly deals with thunder damage. The booming blade is also capable of dealing thunder damage so you will want to make sure that you keep one on the battlefield. The other spells include the following; Disintegration, Slow Poison, and Power Word Heal.
Powerful offensive level:
This level spell is a powerful offensive tool that will allow your character to quickly take down large numbers of opponents. The damage that this weapon will deal is going to be massive if you use it correctly. Once you reach the third level of the game you will be able to use the shadow blade 5e to its maximum potential. The main weakness of this weapon is that it is expensive to purchase and if you are going to use it frequently you may find yourself unable to afford it.
Last level of game:
The last level of the game allows you to learn the new ability known as Mental Storm. This is a powerful level 3 spell that is capable of dealing massive amounts of damage. This ability makes it possible for you to summon other powerful magic weapons such as dragons. However, the damage that they will deal will not be nearly as high as the damage that the shadow blade will deal. If you use this effectively you can really cause a lot of destruction in this game.
Uses of shadow blade 5e in fourth level:
At the fourth level you will be able to use the shadow blade 5e against wizard class enemies. You should use the bards of lightning in this battle to keep the wizard busy. The bards of lightning have the ability to stun the wizard so you need to keep at least one in front of them. Keep casting mind control spells on them to keep them from moving.
Fifth and final part of game:
The fifth and final part of the game gives you the chance to use the shadow blade 5e on one of your warlocks. You have a couple of different options when fighting a Warlock class enemy. Either use the two-handed sword or the mace and shield combination. This is a tough fight because a Warlock is much more resilient than the others but if you use the right weapon combination you should have no problems winning.
