Blade barrier was an evocation spell that summoned a wall of spinning, razor-sharp blades of force.[2][4][5][8]

Effects[edit | edit source]

Older versions of this spell created a deadly curtain that could be as small as 5 ft (1.5 m) square or as large as 60 ft (18.3 m) square.[4][5][8] Newer versions capped the height at 20 ft (6.1 m) and the shape could be a straight wall or a circular barrier whose length or radius was dependent on the caster's level.[2]

Any creature passing through the wall was harmed,[2][4][5][8] although nimble creatures could avoid some of the blades from the newer version of the spell.[2] If cast in an area already occupied, those quick enough could avoid the wall as it formed and be safely on whichever side they chose.[2][4][5]

The barrier not only kept opponents at bay, but also provided some cover from ranged attacks that passed through it.[2]

After the Sundering the spell changed to cover more area in ether a wall or a ringed wall. The straight wall could stretch 100 feet long (30,48 meters), 20 feet high (6.096 meters) and 5 feet thick (1.524 meters). The round wall could have up to 60 feet in diameter, 20 feet high and also 5 feet think.[9]
