Misty step was a conjuration spell that provided the ability to perform short-range teleportation.[1]


Misty step could be cast very quickly. The spell briefly surrounded the caster with a silvery mist. The caster then teleported to any location in sight within 30 ft (9.1 m).[1]

Some humanoid races were innately capable of casting misty step or a similar effect. In particular, the fey step ability of the eladrin allowed them to use their connection to the Feywild to shorten paths, in a similar way that misty step did.[3] In fact, a few high elves could unlock their innate ability to cast the spell by studying elven lore.[4]

The githyanki were also capable of innately casting misty step by channeling their psionic abilities. They could do so completely silently, with no need for components.[5]


The spell only required verbal components.[1]


In the late 15th century DR, the spell was available for copying for 75 gp from a selection of spellbooks at the Book Wyrm's Treasure bookstore in Trollskull Alley in the North Ward of Waterdeep. The owner, Rishaal, also offered the service to scribe the spell onto a scroll for 150 gp.[6]
