Talk:Frozen Defenses (5e Spell)

This feels almost underpowered to be a 5th level spell. In the DMG (pg. 284) it says that a 5th-level spell that affects multiple creatures should do 8d6 damage. I realize that you have many other effects with the spell, so the damage could drop a little bit, but with a saving throw in place the spell should do more damage, maybe 6d6 (the norm for a 3rd level spell affecting multiple creatures). --OwenLeaf (talk) 15:33, 11 February 2015 (MST)

The original had damage immunity rather than the resistances from petrification, so it could go back that way. Otherwise feel free to pump up the damage or add some other effect. Marasmusine (talk) 15:46, 11 February 2015 (MST)
I might be the minority opinion here, but being able to do that much damage (and everything else this spell does) as a reaction inherently makes it more powerful that a spell with a casting time of 1 action. When you're going all-in against a boss monster or the like, getting able to launch a fireball on your turn and also cast this before the start of your next turn nearly doubles your offensive power in the action economy. - Guy (talk) 10:31, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
