Description[edit | edit source]

This blast shape invocation allows you to invoke your eldritch blast as the dreaded eldritch doom. This causes bolts of mystical power to lash out and savage all targets within a 20 foot area. This is not a ray attack, so it requires no ranged touch attack. Each target can attempt a Reflex save for half damage.

Gameplay notes[edit | edit source]

Due to a bug, elemental resistances will apply twice when it comes to avoiding Eldritch Doom's elemental essence damage. For example, if your build had an acid resistance of 15 it would avoid 30 damage from a Vitriolic Doom. Energy immunity applies normally.

This blast shape is useful for Warlocks with relatively low modified attack values or against targets with a relatively high armor class, who might otherwise never be hit with other blast shapes.

Conversely, it's almost useless vs. opponents with Evasion or Improved Evasion.

Eldritch Doom has Friendly Fire for both caster and allies (however, the warlock can successfully negate it with the Ring of Improved Evasion, provided he has high enough Reflex, which - coupled with his potentially high AC and saving throws - can make him very effective at obliterating large groups of enemies on his own even on the highest difficulty).
