The Grease is the sort of spell that thrives when a Dungeon Master allows their players to use their knowledge of real-world physics to their advantage. A grease spell covers a solid surface with a layer of smooth grease. Every creature in the area when the spell is cast must make a successful Reflex save or fall. This save is frequent on your turn each round that the creature remains within the area.
The ground which is in a feet square centred on a point within range is covered by the slick grease and it will turn into a dense ground for a particular duration.
While this grease 5e appears then each creature stands in their own area and they must succeed in a Dexterity saving throw or a fall prone. A creature that enters the area and completes its turn so it means there must also succeed on a deftness saving throw or maybe fall prone.
The delight can also be used to create a greasy coating on an item. Material objects not in use are always precious by this spell, while an object wielded or employed by a creature requires its bearer to make a Reflex saving throw to avoid the effect. If the original saving throw fails, the creature immediately drops the item. A saving chuck must be made in each round that the creature attempts to pick up or use the greased item.

I do make out a small number of DM’s who want to do away with any spell that does something besides deal damage. It’s not a situation I agree with, and a D&D game that has no harmful spells except damage dealers seems less fun to me in play. I like the broader strategic options in play, and reducing all spells to just seems to cheapen it for me.
As the beast struggled to find its footing, the fighter and ranger bull-rushed the monster, tackling it like a pair of linebackers, and sliding the staggering hydra across the greased cave floor like a hockey puck.
The warriors skidded to a halt and the edge of the cliff, and the mighty hydra careened off the cliff, roaring and snapping, and tumbled to the ground below. The creature lived, but it couldn’t scale the cliff, and the party exchanged well done and continued through the dungeon content in a job well done.
While grease has immense power when wielded correctly, it also has some serious limitations that can make it difficult to use it to its full potential. Here are some drawbacks to be aware of when considering learning or preparing grease, all of which are situational disadvantages that mean you have to do some research and exploration before preparing grease on any given adventuring day.
Exclusive of profitable ground, it can be difficult to use grease effectively, since enemy combatants can simply walk around the greased area. Unfortunately, grease’s power doesn’t increase when casting with a spell slot of higher than 1st level. Though its effect is still useful, it would be nice if the spell’s area of effect was increased when casting at a higher level. Some effects in D&D only activate when a creature moves into a space of its own volition, such as opportunity attacks. Grease, however, makes no such distinction.
