Bigby’s Hand replaces the list of Iconic Bigby’s Hand spells into one easy to use package. They were all fairly good spells before, making this one a really good and versatile spell to possess for casters in Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. Let’s check out what this version of the spell can do.

Bigby’s Crushing Hand spell was left off as a selected option within the details of Bigby’s Hand spell, but it’s included within the “At Higher Levels” section. What I feel remains missing, are the statistical increases at higher levels for the hand. So what I would like to try and do is increase Strength, increase AC, and increase hit points for using a higher spell slot level.

Bigby's Hand 5e

Bigby’s Hand 5e

  • Casting Time: 1 action
  • Range: 120 feet
  • Components: V, S, M (an eggshell and a snakeskin glove)
  • Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

BIG! Bigby’s Hand consists of many of the older spells. All of these spells with an asterisk are compressed into Bigby’s hand, and people different aspects are often switched on as bonus actions after casting the spell.

It is a 5th level spell and it needs all three casting elements, with the mats being an eggshell and a snakeskin glove.

It summons an oversized hand of shimmering, translucent force with a strength of 26 for up to at least one minute with a degree which will do the subsequent neat things apart from being an outsized hand of force.

It also can do subsequent things.

  • Clenched Fist. The hand strikes one creature or object for 4d8 damage
  • Forceful Hand. The hand attempts to push a creature within 5 feet of it during a direction you select.
  • Grasping Hand. The hand attempts to grapple an enormous or smaller creature within 5 feet of it.
  • Interposing Hand. The hand interposes itself between you and a creature of your choice until you give the hand a special command. The hand moves to remain between you and therefore the target, providing you with half cover against the target.

So you’ve got an outsized 26 strength hand which will do all types of stuff added to the 4 tricks above. Extra freaking cool!

Clever players will probably find all types of fun and interesting ways to use this spell.

You create a little hand of shimmering green force in an unoccupied space that you simply can see within range. The hand takes the shape of a fist with the rear of the hand directed toward a creature, object, or specified direction. The middle digit of the fist slowly extends ahead of the target. The hand will move and stay ahead of a creature’s face regardless of where it moves for the duration of the spell. the middle digit of the hand is often retracted then extended again as a bonus action after casting.

Beyond that, we pretty pleased with the spell and can make certain to select it up when my wizard can cast a 5th level spell. So to not leave the article too short, I even have been given one among Bigby’s least-known spells that have found its way into my grubby paws. I feel there are times when it’s going to seem appropriate to use this spell.
