Re: Forty foot cube or fourty cubic feet big difference.

Otherwise, there would be no point in playing a wizard since granting the illusionist physical effects and such coupled with the ability to mimic ANY wizard spell with the image spells would make the wizard the more restrictive class. Not at all! Illusionists are restricted in many ways even if the...

Re: Forty foot cube or fourty cubic feet big difference.

I talked with the Trolls and the dirt is that an errata would read 40 foot diameter sphere.

Re: Dragon Armor

Seems as if the spell was intended to give spell casters a chance of not being identified by not wearing armor.

Re: Forty foot cube or fourty cubic feet big difference.

I agree, but that wasn't my point. I was noting that even if you read it as 40 cubic feet total, regardless of shape, you could still have some illusions with some hefty dimensions by sacrificing one or both of the other dimensions. -Fizz Well if you look in the PHB you will see that illusionist ma...

Re: Minor Image.

To my mind, Minor Image and friends are meant to distract or misdirect opponents, and possibly cause them to waste attacks. The fact that they can cause damage is incidental, and serves only to heighten the opponent's belief in the illusion. If it's just damage you're after, you have the Dragon and...

Re: Forty foot cube or fourty cubic feet big difference.

Most illusion at least at lower level are going to be small. I'm 4th level right now so I'm not all that worried about creating large objects but a pit or a wall would be helpful. If you think about it Most humans are about 12 cubic feet, a bugbear would be about 16 cubic feet. So most humanoids wou...

Re: Cleric v Druid, Wizard v Illusionist

Yep, healing except for psyche doesn't work for me. Joe is stabbed. Bill the illusionist tells Joe, I'll heal ya buddy. Joe knows Bill is an illusionist (to me that kills the whole bloody idea of how illusionists can use their trickery to help fellow party members). But let's say Bill really believ...

Re: Cleric v Druid, Wizard v Illusionist

If you think Illusionist are weaker you haven't used your imagination.

Major Image can duplicate a fireball, make a bridge for the characters to cross, make a dragon to fight next to you or an ogre to carry your loot.

Minor Image.

Looking for some input from my fellow Illusionists for some creative uses for minor image. Since sound is limited and thermal effects aren't included I'm inclined to keep with simple illusions. My first thought was things like pit traps, giant swinging axes traps, rolling boulder traps, jello cubes,...
