Mage hand was a transmutation cantrip.[8]

Effects[edit | edit source]

On casting mage hand, the caster pointed at an object and move it 30 feet (9.1 meters) in any direction. A magical, ghost-like hand was conjured, which could be used to interact with objects weighing 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) or less. The hand had the equivalent speed of a human and could easily drop items or, given a moment, pick up new ones. The mage could keep the hand conjured for up to a minute per cast.[1]

When cast on Avernus, the first layer of the Nine Hells, the hand looked like a fiendish claw.[9]

Components[edit | edit source]

Casting mage hand required somatic and verbal components.[8][1]

History[edit | edit source]

Before the Spellplague, though mage hand could only be cast a limited number of times per day during this era, its effects were otherwise similar.[8]

Notable Users[edit | edit source]

  • Arcane tricksters: A profession that could only be picked up by people who were capable of casting mage hand.[10]
