Special Traits

  • Dispel Magic Weakness. Casting dispel magic on an elder witchlight paralyzes it for 1 minute.
  • Luminance. An elder witchlight normally glows as brightly as a torch. The creature can dim itself to the luminosity of a candle, but it cannot extinguish its light. Because of its glow, the witchlight has disadvantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks.
  • Thin As Light. While an elder witchlight is not incorporeal, it can pass through any opening that light can pass through.


  • Light Ray. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 30 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) radiant damage.
  • Flash (Recharge 5-6). The elder witchlight emits a bright burst of light that blinds all sighted creatures within 30 feet for 1 minute unless they succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw.
