Thunderclap was an evocation cantrip that created a potent burst of sound.[1]


The spell caused a thunderous sound to erupt from the caster, loud enough to be heard from as far as 100 feet (30 meters)[1] and deafening to those standing in the immediate vicinity of the caster.[4] Creatures up to 5 feet (1.5 meters) away could be injured by the loud sound, if unable to resist its effects. The damage increased as the caster grew more powerful.[1][5]


The spell only required somatic components.[1]
