Frequently discussion about witch bolt 5e spell

1. UA Genie Warlock is awesome. Utility is nice for a Warlock.
I do hope, however, you change the Genie’s Wraith to work like Hex Blade’s where it just applies once a round when you roll a damage roll.. Because that means it would work with a lot of the DOTs (Witch Bolt

2. I read once, many moons ago, someone saying that you’d literally never use more than one d12 in #DnD 5e so why would you ever need multiple dice.

In the years since then, I have learned that many things use d12s. Not as many as I’d like maybe, but enough. Witch bolt for starters

3. In today’s DnD one-shot:

  • -Everyone went through a scary-ass dream sequence that was caused by puppets
  • -The puppets fused together into a giant monster puppet
  • -My character carried everyone with a sustained Witch Bolt 5e spell
  • -The culprit was a small child which we then held for ransom.
