The SendingStone review

Arcane Sword is a powerful spell available to both Bards and Wizards at level 7. It requires one action to cast and lasts up to 1 minute. The spell deals 3d10 force damage and requires concentration to maintain. It is a rare spell due to its high level, but its potency makes it worth the effort.

Many players consider Arcane Sword to be an essential spell for offensive spellcasting as it offers a reliable source of magical damage. Its force type also bypasses many types of resistances and immunities. However, its high level means that only experienced spellcasters can access it.

Overall, Arcane Sword is a useful spell for any Bard or Wizard looking to deal significant damage in combat. Its high-level requirement means that it is not accessible to lower level players, but those who can use it will find it to be a valuable resource.

Arcane Sword is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Arcane Sword Pathfinder edition. Want to use Arcane Sword in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
