Hello magic casters of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 77th episode of our first level spell series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at a very cool one! May i introduce you to gift of alacrity dnd 5e this is usable by the chronurgy wizard and it is found in the explorer’s guide to wildemount. the chronurgy wizard is essentially a time wizard and this early level spell is a good indicator of how their abilities kind of work. Without further ado let’s take a look at the mechanics here to just better understand it.


  • Level: 1st
  • Casting Time: 1 Minute
  • Range/Area: Touch
  • Components: V, S
  • Duration: 8 Hours
  • School: Divination
  • Attack/Save: None
  • Damage/Effect: Buff

The effect at a glance is as followed: Add a d8 to a willing creatures initiative. Which is frakin huge by the way. The cast time is one minute so you have to do this kind of in advance and is not concentration which is great. The range is touch which means you can technically cast it through familiar just saying.

And the duration is 8 whole hours oh my god that is insane. The components are verbal and somatic meaning you have to speak forth an incantation and gesture with one hand. The school is divination which kind of makes sense cuz you know future stuff. Now let’s take a look at the full description here.


You touch a willing creature. For the duration, the target can add 1d8 to its initiative rolls.

Sad to say, not a whole lot of flavor text there but it is still a pretty dang neat. I really do like the potential for the spell and i also kind of just like the idea of time manipulation as a whole. So i think it’s very very cool! Now let’s get into some alternative uses here. Do you know dnd when to get feats.

Alternative Uses

So i think the best alternative use is at least in terms of what i can think of would be using this to execute some kind of a daring plan, using this to help you to flee a dangerous situation if necessary and using this to give a certain character or NPC priority over everyone else.

I think this is especially effective if you have to protect someone like a king, queen, nobleman something of that nature from impending attack, giving them the ability to make the first call is super important and super great. Not to mention if you have a particularly large heavy hitter that you need to go first to set up a certain plan, this is a great way of hedging your bets towards that. Do you know does gift of alacrity stack?

There’s a foolproof, no not necessarily but it still hedges your bets in the right direction and for a first-level spell i think it’s pretty dang great. You may also like to read fey touched 5e.
