    • It's not that good than you think. It's like AOE sleep, but have the same disadvantages - enemy can wake up his ally just but pushing it, it's bonus action, then second push third and all like that will be waken up.

      It's worth it only if you make sleep ALL enemies, what will be rare

      • Great spell, had a blast using it on my first tactician clear-- However just to point out for efficiency sakes-- Command: Halt does the same thing, but this becomes much more efficient if you're casting it on 3+ enemies. This requires Concentration, Halt doesn't, so it has it's ups and downs but both spells are amazing though!

          People are definitely overhating on this, if you can't see the value in being able to take a large AoE of enemies out of the fight for 2 turns as you go in and wreak unmitigated havoc on them, that's on you. Granted the fact that it's interrupted when you do hit them stops it from being OP, but it's still a great choice, especially if you're running it with a heavy hitter with resets like a Barb or Fighter who is just happy to have nothing them stop them as they run up on their targets.

            Great aoe control for bard for 3rd level. 2 turns is plenty for your party to kill at least 2-3 enemies, assuming this won't fail on apply ofc

              Yep, almost pointless for a 3rd-level spell with that short of a duration. So disappointed on my bard when I got to level 5.

                One of the best 3rd level spells in 5e. Significantly nerfed for BG3 currently with 2 turn duration as opposed to 10 in 5e.
