Bane Tips & Notes

  • Despite a range of 30ft, due to how bane's targeting works it can affect creatures up to 60ft away.
  • Usually the player will not be able to specifically choose which three creatures are affected.
  • The penalty from bane is easy to miss, as it is applied silently. Hovering the cursor over the die roll will show an an unnamed penalty being applied.
  • Differences from D&D 5th Edition: In 5E, the caster may specifically choose the targets, but they must all be within 30ft.

      Bad spell, use blessing instead. Bane takes spell slot and has to go through saving throws, plus takes concentration slot. Hit or miss type of spell. While blessing gives reverse effect on your party members without any saving throws.
