Blur DnD 5E Spell

Hello spellcasters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 11th episode of our second level spell series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at one of the other og protection magics out there and honestly one of the coolest ones to think of from a thematic standpoint lots of flavor text. Today we’re taking a look at blur 5e.

First and foremost and it is usable by the sorcerer, wizard and the artificer. And it is found in the good old players handbook so we should all have access to it. Honestly i really like this one, i remember using this in a couple 80 in the video games and i just always thought the animation was kind of cool, so this does share a tender spot in my heart. Fantastic with that little cool story i guess if you want to call it that out of the way let’s go check out the mechanics.

  • Level: 2nd
  • Casting Time: 1 Action
  • Range/Area: Self
  • Components: V
  • Duration: 1 Minute (Concentration)
  • School: Illusion
  • Attack/Save: None
  • Damage/Effect: Deception

Your cast time is the standard one action, the range is self, the duration is one minute and sadly it is a concentration spell so just bear that in mind you using it. The effect at a glance is as followed:

All attack rolls that rely on sight are made with disadvantage. Which is pretty cool. The components are just verbal which i really like and the school is illusion which is great because we haven’t covered a whole lot of them recently so i really like covering them. Fantastic with that being said, let’s check out the full description and just break it down a bit further.


Your body becomes blurred, shifting and wavering to all who can see you. For the duration, any creature has disadvantage on attack rolls against you. An attacker is immune to this effect if it doesn’t rely on sight, as with blindsight, or can see through illusions, as with truesight.

Really good! Basically if they need to be able to see you to hit you and they don’t have some kind of magical or racial effect that kind of stops that then they got disadvantage. Which is really good! But it’s kind of a bummer because it is concentration that being said if it wasn’t concentration i feel like this would be way way too good. So i get it disappointing but i get it you know.

That being said, hopefully we can spot a silver lining through one heck of an alternative use. Fantastic let’s move on to the alternative use section. You may also interested in what is the scroll of blur spell?

Alternative Uses

I actually thought about this for quite some time, there’s not a lot of text to work with so i couldn’t really think of anything at first but then it dawned on me as those right in front of me. If you have a reason to protect your identity, this spell could potentially save you from a pretty nasty i’m asking.

What i mean by this is it blurs you makes you hard if at all impossible to recognize. Also there’s only the verbal component, so you could essentially be restrained and still pull this off. Just saying that’s kind of the best thing i could think of in all honesty. I’m sure there are others. Also check out this dnd 5e blur vs mirror image.


That being said, if you have any alternative uses, crazy ideas or cool stories involving is blur a good spell in d&d? please let me know down in the comments beneath, i’m just really curious to see what you guys can come up with.
