The SendingStone review

Shillelagh is a simple yet useful spell that can greatly enhance a Druid's melee capabilities in combat. By using a mistletoe, shamrock leaf, and a club or quarterstaff as components, the spell allows the caster to imbue their chosen weapon with magical energy, granting it the properties of a magical weapon for the duration of one minute. This spell can be cast as a bonus action, making it a quick and easy way to buff your damage output. Although it is a low-level spell, it can be a valuable asset for Druids who frequently find themselves in close quarters combat.

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