Destruction wave was an evocation spell that had the caster strike the ground to throw divine energies at surrounding targets.[3]

EffectsEdit

When the caster uttered this spell and struck the ground for emphasis, a wave of energy emanated explosively from the caster and hit any number of chosen targets within 30 ft (9.1 m). The force took the form of a thunderclap and could knock creatures to the ground. In addition to this blast of godly might, the caster could choose the divine energy to be radiant or necrotic in nature, further damaging the targets. Sturdy creatures affected by the blast had a chance to resist the spell. If so, they took only half the damage and remained standing.[3]

ComponentsEdit

Only a vocal component was needed for the casting of this spell.[3] Striking the ground was apparently an optional dramatic gesture.

ErrataEdit

In the first publication of Player's Handbook 5th edition, destructive wave is referred to as destructive smite in the paladin spell listing.[1][2]
