Wall of Lightning

5th-level evocation (druid, sorcerer, wizard)

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 120 feet

Components: V, S, M (fulminar’s claw)

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You create a wall of lightning on a solid surface within range. You make a wall up to 60 feet long, 20 feet high, and 1 foot thick, or you can make a ringed wall up to 20 feet in diameter, 20 feet high, and 1 foot thick. The wall is opaque and lasts for the duration.

When the wall appears, each creature within its area must make a Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 4d8 lightning damage and is restrained for the duration. On a successful save, the target takes half as much damage but isn’t restrained.

A restrained creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a successful save.

One side of the wall, selected by you when you cast this spell, deals 4d8 lightning damage to each creature that ends its turn within 10 feet of that side or inside the wall. A creature takes the same damage and is subject to the wall’s restraining effect when it enters the wall for the first time on a turn or ends its turn there. The other side of the wall deals no damage.

At Higher Levels. When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 6th level or higher, the damage increases by 1d8 for each slot above 5th.
