I’m playing LMoP at the moment as a player and I’m trying to see reasons why a player would choose Unseen Servant over Find Familiar. Related question – what makes Unseen Servant worth taking instead of Mage Hand?
Here’s a small comparison table I’ve created when I was trying to figure it out. I do understand that different DMs can rule things differently, but still I’m looking for opinions.
|Mage Hand||Unseen Servant||Find Familiar|
|Casting time||action||action/10 minutes||1 hour|
|Casting cost||0 gp||0 gp||10 gp|
|Duration||1 minute||1 hour||until killed/dispelled|
|Command time||action||bonus action||free action|
|Carrying capacity||10 lbs||60 lbs||90 lbs (depends on Str)|
|Movement||30 ft||15 ft||60 ft|
|Drop items in combat||yes||yes||yes|
