        Ensnaring Strike spell can be cast as a melee or ranged attack. It uses an action + spell slot, not a bonus action. It does weapon damage + bonus damage from Stat abilities. At the beginning of their turn an ensnared person/creature takes 1d6 piercing damage. The initial attack can proc colossus slayer however the ensnared damage every turn does not. It requires a melee/ranged attack to hit, after which the person attacked makes a str save vs your spell casting DC (10+wis). A friendly unit can use the Help action to free an ensnared target however the target cannot free itself unless it passes a str check made at the beginning of each turn. The ensnaring effect also requires concentration to cast and maintain. Even if the ensnare is resisted, it still uses concentration meaning it is not compatible with hunters mark or other spells that require your concentration.
