The SendingStone review

Sunbeam is a powerful spell available to Druids, Sorcerers, and Wizards at Level 6. It is a concentration spell that lasts up to one minute and deals 6d8 radiant damage. The spell requires a verbal and somatic component as well as material components.

Overall, Sunbeam is a potent spell that can be used to deal significant damage to enemies. However, it does require concentration, which can limit the number of spells a caster can use in one battle. Additionally, the spell's damage type may not always be effective against certain enemies. Despite these drawbacks, Sunbeam remains a popular spell for its high damage potential.

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