Sign of Ill Omen 5E

Hello warlocks of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 38th episode of our eldritch invocation series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at sign of ill omen dnd 5e. I’ve mentioned this on a couple other articles reason being is it gives you a pretty cool ability that you actually need to access some of the best invocations of the game or at least one way of doing it. In any case let’s take a look at the description so we know what we’re talking about.


First and foremost there is a prerequisite for this invocation and that is you have to be at least 5th level. This is five levels in warlock by the way not five levels total character level, so just bear that in mind. The description reads as followed. Apart from this you can also check out what is the devil’s sight spell?

You can cast bestow curse once using a warlock spell slot. You can’t do so again until you finish a long rest.

We’ve dealt with a lot of invocations like this in the past, i really wish its a short rest honestly you’ve got all your other spell slots back at the short rest so i don’t see why this would be any different. It is really good though anyways that being said let’s break down bestow curse in the overview section here.


So essentially touch one creature on a failed wisdom save they are cursed by one of several effects.

These effects are choosing ability score, the target has disadvantage on checks and saves in relation to that ability score least. Your attacks and spells deal an extra 1d necrotic damage to the target. Disadvantage on attack rolls against you and the target makes a wisdom save at the start of each turn on a failed save they waste their action doing nothing. Also read hound of ill omen dnd 5e.

Okay so obviously some of those at a glance at least seem a little bit better than others but for the most part things go pretty good, it also mentions that if you have come up with any ideas of your own you can run it past your DM. Also read is ray of sickness good 5e.

As to what those might be you know i think it would be fairly cool if you made it so the first attack that target takes after its turn is done so with advantage or there’ll be another good one here. Let’s say they take i don’t know an extra 1d4 psychic damage every time they get hit by an attack something like that. I think that’d be pretty cool and pretty fair.


In any case if you can come up with any other ones please put them down in the comments beneath, i think we all really appreciate that. That being said guys, thank you so much for checking out today, have a great day and as always a happy casting. Finally you can also check out this what is an eldritch invocation?
