Imagine that you’re standing in front of your enemy, the enemy that you’ve stood face to face with throughout your entire life, your enemy that being a direct copy of you, an exact copy of your very soul and spirit. What would you do? What would your level of discipline be like? What would your anger and hatred be like? I present to you: Hellish Rebuke 5e.
Now, imagine that you’ve just learned about the hellish rebuke and you want to cast it on your enemy. You’ve read about it in the grimoire. You know about it from somewhere. But you want to do this in less than one minute. Is this what you want?
Well, consider the situation for second. If you can only reach the first level evocation, which takes about two minutes, then you can go up to level two using hellish rebuke 5e, which takes about three minutes. If you get angry while hellish rebuke 5e is going on, then you might not have anything left by the end of the spell, but if you’re calm you’ll have enough energy to get through the whole thing. In addition, if you use a quickening charm and cast hellish rebuke 5e on yourself while your hands are empty, then you’ll get a lot more distance out of your first level spells. So you can see that the discipline and anger issue isn’t a deal breaker, in my opinion.
Now let’s take a look at the actual mechanics of hellish rebuke 5e. You cast this spell by choosing a target within range equal to your spellcasting range. Then, for every five seconds this target is hit with a hellish rebuke effect. The nature of these attacks is that they do not have chance to land directly on the target, but are rather seen by the sight or Hearing radius.

At lower levels you’ll use a different hex for hellish rebuke and 5e, but the same basic rules apply. When you cast the hex, choose a target within range equal to your casting range. Then, immediately after, cast your hellish rebuke. It will be up to your sight or hearing range to determine whether the hex has been successfully called.
The only real variation in hellish rebuke 5e is the hellish rebuke hex description. It says nothing about casting time or casting range, but simply says to view the target as afflicted with “blow.” This is an easy way to describe a standard stave or sorcerous attack, but in an attack where the target is being blasted with energy or otherwise damaged, this is the only appropriate way to describe it. If the game is playing it safe, you’ll use the same stave or attack every time, but if you’re trying something new and more unique, change up the order or casting time.
When cast, the hellish rebuke affects the creature that is hit directly. However, it doesn’t stop the creature from continuing to move or take actions. If the attacked creature is able to move after the spell is cast, the flames around it may temporarily surround it. For example, a character may be surrounded by fire upon being struck by a melee weapon. In that situation, though, the character can still move, taking the place of the fiery barrier the attacker had previously cast.
In order to get the most out of hellish rebuke 5e, make sure to think about your own capabilities and limitations before casting it. The effects are great, but it can be easy to forget about them. Remember that only one round is used for this particular type of spell, so cast it when you think you can, even if it’s likely that you will not actually need that extra boost of power to win the fight. Also, be sure to study up on the basics of warlocks before trying this one out so that you don’t waste spells or time casting it the first few times. Also, be sure to practice with different spell slots in order to ensure that you don’t waste too many chances at casting this spell.
