Phantom steed was a conjuration spell that conjured a magical horse (or spider in the case of spider domain clerics) for the caster to ride.[1][2]


This spell conjure a quasi-real, horse-like creature. The steed could be ridden only by the caster and another individual. A phantom steed had a black head and body, gray mane and tail, and smoke-colored, insubstantial hooves that made no sound. It had what seemed to be a saddle, bit, and bridle. They did not fight, but all normal animals shunned them and refused to attack them.[1]

The phantom steed would disappear if it sustained a killing blow. The speed, amount of weight they could bear, and their ability to travel over difficult surfaces or even fly depended on the relative skill of the caster.[1]
