Hello warlocks of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 40th episode of our eldritch invocation series where we go invocation invocationing breaking down each one and truly understanding how to use it most effectively. Today we’re going to be taking a look at thirsting blade 5e another cutely named one as always wizards great job on the naming of these. So what book is thirsting blade in? It is from PHB.
In any case thirsting blade invocation is all but necessary for most hexblade warlocks and i’ll get into why that is. This also combo is unbelievably well with a certain multi class which will also mention later on. In any case let’s take a look at the description so you know what we’re talking about here. Also read thirsting blade vs booming blade comparision.
Table of Contents
There is a prerequisite, there are actually two. The first being you have to be at least fifth level, that is five levels in warlock 5e by the way not five levels total character level. And you have to have the pact of the balde feature. Which is pretty standard for most hexbladers. This is actually the main reason you want to pick the pact of the blade so we’ll get into that too. It written as followed. Also would you like to know thirsting blade stack with extra attack.
So super good! Let’s take a look at the overview and break this down a little bit. Check out this dancing sword 5e price.
So basically one attack action gets you two attacks.
It makes sense right! A lot of people interpret this to read basically kind of pseudo extra attack but it’s actually so much more than that. Because of the wording conventions here every time you take the attack action yet two attacks to settle one. Also read are warlocks weak 5e.
So if you were to oh i don’t know take let’s say a small dip into fighter seeing an action surge that means two levels of fighter plus five levels of warlock so seventh level character would get four attacks, two for each attack action and you get one attack action normally and then another one when you use action surge. You can also check out this thirsting blade and multiattack.
So super cool this really brings the pact of the blade lock together really nicely and honestly i just really liked it, even if you’re not planning a multi class i still consider getting this, it’s super great! You may also like to know strongest dnd classes 5e.

I really enjoy seeing what you have to say, it’s a brings up my day a little bit. In any case i hope you all have a wonderful day and as always happy casting.
