Haste 5e Spell

Haste 5e Spell

“1 gold to beat you in a foot race?!” The Orc howled in laughter at the portly wizard.

“Your gold is mine!” The Orc shouted, as he ran. His muscles strained as he poured everything into running. He wanted to not only beat the man, but to humiliate him.

The wizard sprang and moved faster than the Orc could follow. He quickly outpaced the Orc and crossed the finish line.

“NO FAIR! You can’t use magic!” The Orc yelled.

What is Haste 5e Spell?

Haste is a 3rd level transmutation spell. It takes one action to cast, has a range of 30 feet, and requires verbal, somatic, and material (licorice root) components. Haste spell also uses concentration and lasts up to one minute. 

The caster chooses a willing target within range. That target gets +2 to AC, an advantage on DEX saving throws, and one additional action. This extra action must be a single weapon attack, dash, disengage, hide, or use an object. When the spell ends, the target misses a turn as it recovers.

Haste 5e Spell Description

Source: Player’s Handbook

Choose a willing creature that you can see within range. Until the spell ends, the target’s speed is doubled, it gains a +2 bonus to AC, it has advantage on dexterity saving throws, and it gains an additional action on each of its turns.

That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action. When the spell ends, the target can’t move or take actions until after its next turn, as a wave of lethargy sweeps over it.

Is Haste a good spell?

Haste is a great spell. It gives buffs to AC, DEX, and one extra action. When using this buff, the caster must maintain concentration. It would be a good idea to take the War Caster feat and gain advantages on CON saving throws. This feat will decrease the likelihood of losing concentration and wasting a level 3 spell.
