Today we’re taking a look at thunderclap dnd spell usable by the bard, druid, sorcerer, warlock and the wizard and naurally through extension anyone else with access to their spell lists and it is found in the elemental evil players companion as are many of our favorite cantrips (if you ask me what book is thunderclap in 5e?). The mechanics are as followed. You can also check out our other dnd spells.

The range is a modest quite feeble 5ft. The duration is instantaneous, the saving throw is constitution, the components are somatic, the school is evocation and the damage type unsurprisingly is the thunder. Now let’s take a look at the full description. So you can really get a feel for the flavor behind this spell as well as just to make sure we’re on the same page in regards to it. So that everyone can get to know how does thunderclap work in d&d?


You create a burst of thunderous sound that can be heard up to 100 feet away. Each creature within range, other than you, must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or take 1d6 thunder damage. The spell’s damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 5th level (2d6), 11th level (3d6), and 17th level (4d6).

So great i mean just wow thematically amazing spell just absolutely terrifying in the right situation. That being said, let’s take a look at some alternative uses here so that everyone can get the answer for how do you use thunderclap?.

Alternative Uses

The best one that i can think of is taking advantage of that 100 feet of sound to really alert our party members or NPCs that something’s going down or even to serve as a signal for a particular event or pre-thought plan. Great spell, tons of flavor and just fun to use.


That being said, if you have any alternative uses or have any crazy stories involving thunderclap dnd 5e i’d really like to hear it down in the comments below and as would everyone else checking this article.
