Repelling Blast 5E

Hello warlocks of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 35th episode of our eldritch invocations series. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at another one of the most common modifiers to the eldritch blast cantrip today we’re gonna be taking a look at repelling blast dnd 5e. It pretty much is what it sounds like in any case let’s get started by taking a look at the description here.

First and foremost there is going to be a prerequisite and that is you have to be able to cast the eldritch blast cantrip which any warlock worth their salt picks it so there you go. The description reads as followed.

When you hit a creature with eldritch blast, you can push the creature up to 10 feet away from you in a straight line.

Pretty cool stuff there! Now there is a little wording caveat to this, that is a point of debate. In any case let’s take a look at the overview and kind of break this down a little bit more. You can also read does repelling blast cause damage?


So this is the debatable part first and foremost. Once per turn part, so the description doesn’t actually say once per turn but it’s implied. So once per turn you can use your eldritch blast to push a creature up to 10 feet away.

There are those that argue that you can do with each individual eldritch blast ultimately it’s a DM call i don’t allow it my games because and just i make this look in the so they can push the target out like 40 feet which most movement speeds 30 so doesn’t make much sense to me. S i rule that it’s only one i’m fairly sure the sage advice rules the same as me. You may also interested in repelling blast dnd 5e spells.

But by raw you can technically do it more than once. So just ask your DM about see what they think. I do think this is incredibly useful it’s a great way to get a person out of another character space without necessarily provoking an attack of opportunity which is really nice, really nice because its forced movement right.

Something i would like to point as well as it specifies up to ten feet meaning it can be five or ten feet so if you have a trap set up you can push them right into that trap which is really nice. Yeah that’ll be about it for repelling blast, i really like this one. I think it works with a lot of good builds. Also check out repelling blast upwards.
