Greater Invisibility 5e Uses and Description
You or a creature you touch becomes invisible until the spell ends. Anything the target is wearing or carrying is invisible as long as it is on the target’s person.
In explanation, Greater Invisibility 5e is a spell used to either become invisible or make the target invisible. It also has an impact on the entire target, including the what target is carrying and wearing. This spell can be cast by a touch only, and lasted for 1 minute by the players playing with Sorcerers, wizard and Bard class.
- An invisible creature is impossible to see without the aid of magic or a special sense. For the purpose of hiding, the creature is heavily obscured. The creature’s location can be detected by any noise it makes or any tracks it leaves.
- Attack rolls against the creature have disadvantages, and the creature’s attack rolls have advantages.
Invisibility 5e vs Greater Invisibility 5e
The difference between these two spells are,
- Invisibility is a second level spell, whereas Greater Invisibility is a 4th level spell.
- Casting time for both is 1 action that is touching the target.
- Duration for Invisibility is 1 hour, whereas Greater Invisibility could last for only 1 minute
At first, Greater Invisibility looks less powerful, even though it’s two levels higher… it lasts 1 minute instead of 1 hour, and can only target one creature.
It says “you or a creature you touch” instead of “a creature you touch”, but that doesn’t actually seem to make any difference, because page 204 of the PHB says:
If a spell targets a creature of your choice, you can choose yourself, unless the creature must be hostile or specifically a creature other than you.
The only advantage of greater Invisibility 5e is that the spell doesn’t end when the targeted person attacks or makes a spell, this is the reason that the duration is 1 minute, while Invisibility has the duration of 1 hour.
