Cloud Of Daggers 5e Sage Advice – Area of Effect


Before moving onto good ways of combining cloud of daggers with other effects to maximize its usefulness, we should take some wise advice into account.

For those of us who usually play with a combat grid, we might be tempted to limit the casting of cloud of daggers to a 5-foot square on the grid.
But, as Jeremy Crawford notes in this Sage Advice column, the area of effect for the cloud is not necessarily limited to the 5-foot squares of the combat grid. The cloud could take up half of two adjacent squares, for instance.

Ultimately, the decision of whether the spell’s effect must “snap-to-grid” is up to your GM. But it is not unreasonable to suggest that by having the area of effect partially cover two squares on the grid, creatures trying to move into or through those squares might have to squeeze, move acrobatically, make a saving throw, etc. in order to avoid the spell’s effect.

  • You can choose to extend the duration of an effect created by a wizard at-will spell (such as cloud of daggers or ray of frost)
  • You create an area around you filled with magical daggars that damage enemies.
