Elemental Weapon 5e
The Elemental Weapons Spell in 5e: An Overview
Whenever the 5e weapon hits, it deals 1d4 additional damage of a selected type, plus a +1 bonus to attack rolls.
A powerful elemental weapon is possessed by each prophet who leads a cult of Elemental Evil. The elemental evil essence is imbued in these potent objects. As well as being useful in battle, these keys allow prophets to channel the power of the basic nodes and open the planes’ boundaries. As well as making weapons wielders worse, they twist their minds towards evil ends.
As a result of their elemental power, the cults have amassed more magic items than would be normal for a group of their size, but there aren’t enough for every cultist to possess one. Cult members of the Howling Hatred, for example, would all love to soar on the wind, but only a few members possess a magical power or item that confers that blessing.
As narrow as one inch wide, the basic can pass through without squeezing. When within 5 feet of the basic, an attacker who hits it with a melee attack suffers 9 (2d8) acid damage. It can also enter a hostile creature’s space and stay there. A creature takes 9 (2d8) acid damage the first time it enters its space on a turn.
The majority of earth elementals are comprised of stone and earth,
but metal elementals are stronger and more durable. It even allows them to reorganize their limbs at will to decide how they will attack their enemies. The three arms of the metal elemental can wield slashing blades, piercing spikes, or massive bludgeons.
