All the time, while using this Armor Of Agathys spell a protective magical force always surrounds you and also manifests sort of a spectral frost that covers not only you and your gear too. For the precise duration, you are doing gain 5 temporary hit points. The creature can have an opportunity to urge 5 cold damages whenever a creature will hit you with a melee attack whenever you’ve got this type of hit point.
By using the spell slot of 2nd level or higher if you cast this spell then both the temporary hit points and also the cold damage is going to be increased by 5 for every slot above the first level.

One thing to recollect is that AoA only comes into play once you are hit. So you would like to take care of counting on any concentration spell. The builds where you reduce damage (except barbarian, since rage precludes concentration) will help with this to a point, but if you would like to use concentration spells reliably then starting with a category that’s Proficient in CON saves (like Draconic Sorcerer) is beneficial, also because of the Warcaster feat.
Also, AoA is multiplicative with level cast at – it survives more hits, and does more damage per hit. A low-level casting might only survive one hit, and not be worthwhile in terms of injury returned for your action. So counting on your DM you would like to believe the variety of combats between long or short rests (depending on classic caster or warlock resource model) in order that you are feeling confident you’ve got an inexpensive number of high-level castings. I feel Warlock may excel there if your DM gives out a mean number of short rests.
Seeker Warlock11: it’s very appealing for my AoA!!! Shielding Aurora gives me resistance to all or any damage types for 1 round protecting the AoA at a budget cost of a bonus action (!), Far Wanderer gives me 2 Elemental resistances(!!) and Astral Refuge gives me the likelihood to cast AoA alongside … What?? Have you ever found how to take advantage of this ability? It seems wasted for this Warlock, but multiclassing at Warlock 6 would render you useless.
LoreBard8/Bearbarian3: this is often cool! AoA and rage on your first turn and you’ve got a robust and resistant pool of THP boosted by Cutting Words and (possibly) Goliath resilience! Then choose Inspirations together with your |along with your”> together with your Bonus Actions and Grapple things with your Action!! is that ok? If the enemy isn’t getting to fight in melee this build goes to feel particularly useless but hey… 8 levels of Bards anyway.
Assuming that from subsequent level Elemental Affinity will empower my AoAthis seems a cool build. Are the enemies susceptible to a true tavern brawl? choose AoA and enter in melee, able to reduce damage with Cutting Words, Absorb Elements (the other Magical Secret), Quickened Blade Ward, and (possibly) Goliath’s resilience. Are the enemies coward spellcasters/RangedInclined? choose Twinned Buffs and Bardic Inspirations! In any case, you’re one of the simplest buffers around… is that this effective? What would be how to stay the enemies curious about hitting me after checking out how painful is it?
