    Far Step sounds pretty nice but I want to preserve the concentration spots for CC spells like hypnotic Pattern or Hold Person. My team is quite melee heavy so I’ve got good protection; dimension door is my safeguard if anything goes wrong and I can take an ally with me!

    Most of your other suggestions seem appropriate for a swords/valour bard but I’m going full support with this character lol.

    Prismatic spray/wall, just careful you don’t annihilate your melee allies with the former 😂

    Another Magical Secrets “what do I pick?!” post haha...

    The current team situation is:

    Half-Elf Glamour Bard
    Life Cleric
    Monk
    Ranger
    Paladin
    Warlock

    We’re only lv 3 but I’m trying to plan out the direction I want the character to go in spell-wise so by the time I hit 10 I “should” have

    Cantrips:
    Minor Illusion
    Vicious Mockery
    Light

    R1:
    Faire Fire
    Dissonant Whispers
    Identify

    R2:
    Pyrotechnics
    Blindness/Deafness
    Shatter
    Hold Person

    R3:
    Dispel Magic
    Hypnotic Pattern

    R4:
    Dimension Door
    Polymorph

    R5:
    Synaptic Static

    ———————————————

    Counterspell is the common suggestion and I’m heavily considering its benefits. It just seems a bit, cheap imo... I feel like it’s more fun to deal with what the enemy has thrown at us and Dispel Magic should cover that base other than a PC getting straight up killed, which we DO have a cleric for; I’m also trying not to overlap roles within the party, which can be difficult to avoid as a bard. There’s just soooo much fun stuff to choose from the sorcerer/druid/wizard lists so I’m kind of biased there since we don’t have any of those classes.

    I’m also not totally sure about Greater Invis from a thematic standpoint. This is a glamour bard that NEEDS to be noticed/worshipped/loved so going invis feels like such an antithesis...considering polymorph here.

    So far I’m liking:

    R5 Bigby’s Hand - Mainly for enemy repositioning to move them through a bunch of opportunity attacks lol.

    R5 Wall of Force - Just objectively good; moreso with Mantle of Inspiration.

    R4: Banishment - One of a rare few CC that require a CHA save and I like CC variety.

    R4 Conjure Woodland Beings - Summoning 8 pixies sounds stupidly awesome! Think I’d have to work with my DM on a version of the spell that’s not so obnoxious...

    R4 Find Greater Steed - Mostly the thematic flair of riding around on a pegasus.

    R1 Shield - +5AC on REACTION?! Is this a trap??

    Thanks for your suggestions! :D
