Hello warlocks of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 23rd episode of our eldritch invocations series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at something that i will give you that added advantage in combat as well as make your character a little bit more bad ace. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at improved pact weapon dnd 5e.
This is almost mandatory for any hexblade warlocks out there. If you’re a warlock 5e being a melee range or using weapons as opposed to spells, this is perfect for you or are the very least using a combination of the two. In any case with that intro out of the way let’s take a look at the full description here, so you know what we’re talking about.

First and foremost it’s gonna be worth noting there is a prerequisite for this and that is that you have to have choosen the pact of the blade feature and that’s what allows you to store your weapon and a kind of sub dimensional rift stuff like that. And it reads as followed. In any case you can also read does improved pact weapon summon ammo?
Now there really is a lot implied here if you look at the wording. I’ll explain a little bit more in the overview section. So without further ado let’s take a look.
Essentially, your pact weapon becomes your spellcasting focus, and it gains a +1 to attack and damage. You can also conjure a shortbow, longbow, light crossbow or heavy crossbow.
So there’s a couple reasons why this is so good! First and foremost the spell casting focus component. So well may not seem like a whole lot a glance this is what allows you to cast spells will you have a weapon and shield otherwise as long as there’s that somatic component which most spells do you have you won’t be able to.
A lot of DM’s homebrew where you can and can’t but you can’t by raw. The plus one is super great especially since there’s no level cap on this. If you’re a hexblade warlock take this as soon as you get your invocations. And the ability to conjure a shortbow, longbow, light crossbow or heavy crossbow this is super super amazing. Also read is improved pact weapon a feat?
Honestly the sheer versatility this has is essentially unrivaled, especially if you’re DM is implying carrying weight, this is a great way to kind of be the go-to for almost any situation, it really is nice. In addition to that i just want to quickly double check here yeah exactly you can use your charisma modifier, instead of your strength or dex so that’s even better. Also read this can improved pact weapon be a hand crossbow?
Honestly there’s no reason not to take this at this point, it is one of the best invocations we’ve covered so far. And it really is mandatory for the hexblade warlock, i’d be curious to see how a hexblade warlock would be stack without this, there’s an unearthed arcana version of this as well.
