So I am currently playing a vine leshy ninja am taking the acceleration of form ninja trick and boots of striding and springing Important information that you need to know before I ask the question: The race’s speed is listed as 20 feet The boots are a +10 bonus to base speed this is an enhancement bonus Haste increases all forms of movement by 30 feet to a maximum of twice the subject’s normal speed using that form of movement this is an enhancement bonus
So my question at hand is: how do these interact so far me and my gm have come up with three possible answers 1: haste doubles race move speed, replaces boots as they are both enhancement (Total 40 feet) 2: haste doubles your move speed, replaces boots as both are enhancement (Total 50 feet) 3: haste doubles your move speed- but the enhancement bonus to base speed is different than bonus to total speed as a result they stack (total 60 feet)
Does anyone happen to know the answer?
So the Haste spell in 5e says that the targeted creature
gains an additional action on each of its turns. That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action.
This means I technically have a second action, so would that allow me to use the Greenflame Blade cantrip a second time in the same turn (once with the actual action, once with this action) as the cantrip applies to one weapon attack in a similar fashion as a Paladin with Haste could apply Divine Smite onto the Haste-given attack?
For a character that is wearing heavy armor, but does not have the prerequisite strength, there is a 10ft speed penalty.
If the Armor table shows “Str 13” or “Str 15” in the Strength column for an armor type, the armor reduces the wearer’s speed by 10 feet unless the wearer has a Strength score equal to or higher than the listed score.
Haste doubles the speed of the person it was cast on.
Until the spell ends, the target’s speed is doubled
Since the movement speed of heavy armor is a fixed amount, does the doubling apply to the base speed or the current speed? ie. A human with a base speed of 30. They put on heavy armor and have their speed reduced to 20. Haste is cast on them, does their speed become 30*2 – 10 = 50 or (30-10)*2=40?
Choose a willing creature that you can see within range. Until the spell ends, […] it gains an additional action on each of its turns. That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action.
This obviously does not allow to use any other actions that you can usually use, like casting a spell, as the more specific rule beats the general rule of what actions can be used. But what if some other specific effect grants additional option to use an action for? For example say an Assassin Vine has entangled me, that grants me the additional action option of breaking free from the vines:
A creature restrained by the plants can use its action to make a DC 13 Strength (Athletics) check, freeing itself on a successful check.
Can I use my haste action to try to break free?
As far as I can tell, I have two specific rules contradicting each other. If there is no official ruling on this, does anyone know what be ruled in AL?
Mythic Haste states:
Affected creatures gain an additional move action each round.
The rules for casting spells state:
A spell that takes 1 round to cast is a full-round action. It comes into effect just before the beginning of your turn in the round after you began casting the spell. You then act normally after the spell is completed.
If I cast a 1 round spell before using my move action, does the spell finish early?
Turn 1: Cast haste. Do things.
Turn 2: Cast invisibility (end haste). Be invisible. No movement, no actions.
Turn 3: Be invisible. No movement, no actions. (Resolve haste)
The section on “Concentration” states:
[…] You lose Concentration on a spell if you cast another spell that requires Concentration. You can’t concentrate on two Spells at once. […]
The haste spell states:
Casting Time: 1 action […]
Duration: Up to 1 minute […]
When the spell ends, the target can’t move or take actions until after its next turn, as a wave of lethargy sweeps over it.
The invisibility spell states:
Casting Time: 1 action […]
Duration: Up to 1 hour […]
The spell ends for a target that attacks or casts a spell. […]
While making a Bladesinger Wizard, I wondered if I would be able to use Booming Blade twice while hasted.
Booming Blade: As part of the action used to cast this spell, you must make a melee attack with a weapon against one creature within the spell’s range, otherwise the spell fails.
Haste: Until the spell ends, the target’s speed is doubled, it gains a +2 bonus to AC, it has advantage on Dexterity saving throws, and it gains an additional action on each of its turns. That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action.
What exactly does “one weapon attack only” mean? Is this to prevent characters with the Extra Attack feature from making 2 attacks? Does this prevent me from casting 2 spells (cantrips or higher-level spells) in a single turn?
It’s a fairly straightforward question.
A creature has a Multiattack option, and it also can cast the Haste spell. While under the effect of Haste, can it use the second Action to take another Multiattack Action?
My main concern is the clause of the Haste spell that limits the number of attacks made from taking the Attack Action. This is a different Action, though.
Then there is the concern of being able to use Multiattack at all, because Haste says what kinds of Actions you can take.
At level 5 Fighters get the Extra Attack ability, allowing them to make more than one attack as part of an Attack action.
Haste also enables people to make additional attacks.
Do the extra attacks from Fighter lvl 5 and the extra attacks from haste stack?
RAW, Haste specifies:
[The target] gains an additional action on each of its turns. That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action.
And it has already been stablished that “Use an object” is not valid to use a magic item which to my understanding includes drinking a potion.
So my question is, would it break balance much to actually disregard that and allow the drinking of a potion as one of the actions granted by Haste?
