The SendingStone review

Mage Hand is a useful cantrip spell in Dungeons & Dragons that allows spellcasters to manipulate objects at a range of 30 feet. It can be used for various purposes such as opening doors, picking up objects, or distracting enemies. The spell has a casting time of one action and a duration of one minute. It is available to bards, sorcerers, warlocks, and wizards.

Overall, Mage Hand is a versatile and convenient spell that can save time and effort for players. It also provides opportunities for creative problem-solving in difficult situations. However, its usefulness may depend on the specific campaign and may not always be necessary or relevant. Regardless, it is a spell worth considering for any aspiring spellcaster.
