Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 60th episode of our feats series. We’re going to be taking a look at another racial exclusive found in xanathar’s guide to everything. Today we are gonna be taking a look at dnd 5e wood elf magic feat this is a very very similar to fey teleportation we talked about earlier and the jurors have one for the drow as well like that the elves get spoilt and 5e quite a bit. This is definitely proof of that…in any case let’s take a look at the description here and kind of understand what’s going on a little bit more.

The prerequisites are you gotta be a wood elf of one kind or another be so just make sure your wood elf i guess half elves not applicable for this sadly i got to be full elf you gotta be full wood elf. In any case let’s take a look at this at the feat description to kind of better understand it.
You learn the magic of the primeval woods, which are revered and protected by your people. You learn one druid cantrip of your choice. You also learn the longstrider and pass without trace spells, each of which you can cast once without expending a spell slot. You regain the ability to cast these two spells in this way when you finish a long rest. Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for all three spells.
Wowzers pretty cool stuff! With that being said, let’s take a look at the walkthrough and break it down and just a little bit for us.
Essentially you get a free druid cantrip which is super great, in terms of which are the most popular to pick i’d read through, i find magic still is to be quite a good choice for this one. But ultimately it comes to down to you, i’m not gonna really push you one or the other comes out there build and once per long rest you can cast a long strider and pass without trace, which is really good.
In case you’re unfamiliar with long strider does basically for an hour it bumps up your speed by 10 feet. I would just decent depending on how you’re playing your character and then the real good one here has pass without trace which essentially lets you add a plus 10 bonus to your stealth checks and makes you can’t be tracked except for the use of magic.
Really really cool stuff there! Honestly i like it, if physical for what else really well and wisdom is your ability modifier for all of them. In any case let’s take a look at my personal thoughts on it.
I like it, i really do i feel like it works with the wood elf really dang well. In terms of who gains the most from it…i want to say monk probably reason being is they kind of lacked a lot of that magic potential that comes from cantrips like i know they can cast pseudo spells was just not the same.
Especially we pick something like thorn whip and this is really good stuff! Long strider also really helps them with their already ridiculous movement, they can also like climb on walls and stuff and higher levels and +10 to stealth i mean who doesn’t want that seriously it’s great and it lasts for an hour as well in his concentration which is kind of math but basically for an hour you have +10 to your movement and another +10 your stealth. I think that’s ridiculously good.
In any case, if you have any ideas, any alternative uses, any cool build concepts or anything like that please take it down in the comments below. I love reading them, i know everyone else does as well. That being said have a great day guys and happy adventuring.
