Thunderous Smite 5e Spell Description

A quick glance at the Player’s Handbook will tell you the basic form that the spell takes…

The first time you hit with a melee weapon attack during this spell’s duration, your weapon rings with thunder that is audible within 300 feet of you, and the attack deals an extra 2d6 thunder damage to the target.

Additionally, if the target is a creature, it must succeed on a Strength saving throw or be pushed 10 feet away from you and knocked prone.

Thunderous Smite 5e Stats

Is Thunderous Smite 5e spell good?

Any given spell ranges between reasonable and great, depending on the situation in which you use it. While Thunderous Smite isn’t as effective as Divine Smite, 2d6 of additional damage is not to be sniffed at, and knocking your enemy into a prone state, if timed correctly, makes all the difference.

The circumstance will dictate its importance, but having this spell in the party’s arsenal of nasty tricks is always worth it.
