      Extremely powerful with agonizing blast invocation from warlock (otherwise it's basically firebolt). Let's warlocks keeps pace with martial classes in single target damage (2 attacks + mod at lvl 5, 3 attacks + mod at lvl 10). Although great weapon master / sharpshooter feat probably slightly edges it out in damage eventually, you also get powerful warlock spells.

        This can also be learned by Bards using Magical Secrets at level 10 or level 6 for College of Lore Bards. Though given that you can get nearly any spell it might not be the best choice.

          spellsparkler speciul robes(an extra charisma on top) SORLOCK blaster (3fighter battlemaster for precision maneuver,2lock,3rogue thief,4 sorc)
          4 rays, at +5 cha (10 dmg per ray), 1 ray is 1 dmg
          11-20per ray - 33-60+11 ->> 44-71 PER eldritch cast
          220-355 at 5 uses (haste,surge,action,2xbonus, FLEXIBL)
          if delaying 1 turn, hex adds 1d6 for EACH ray ,and ilithid power adds 1 extra ray to each eldritch blast(25 rays for 5 uses) - > 11-14- >55- 70 which makes 275-425 flexible dmg OR single target ->25-150hex >>>300-575 dmg

          there ARE finer calculations to be made on the sorlock front because they lose 1 ray on an eldritch cast due to sparkler going off sometimes...p.s sorcery points can be stacked before a fight in case anyone wondering why no more sorc...(charisma is 2x from 1 feat and 1x from a quest and theres even more goodies for charisma boost)
          BATTLEMASTER IS A MUST for the precision maneuver, it applies to all rays in a cast

          • Agonizing Blast is so strong and bugged, if you have The Spellsparkler (lightning charge) doing 1 thunder damage it will proc Agonizing Blast a second time and a third time when you consume the 5 charges too ... Need more test what other source of damage can proc it more.

              Is it me or has this been nerfed in full release? Before it used to add another attack modifier onto Eldritch Blast and would also stack on the Necrotic Damage for Hex, so you'd get 4 damage numbers, not just two; you could do some crazy damage, now it's just 1d10+charisma with Agonizing Blast.

                Will this get stronger with CHARACTER level or WARLOCK level? I’ve seen people say both and I know in 5e it’s CHAR level.

                  Wait wait wait. So eldrotch blast DOESN'T gain additional beams as you level up like in 5e? WHY???? That was the while point of the spell
