Is it possible to use the Mirror Image spell with the Devil’s Sight invocation and the Darkness spell effectively?

The Darkness spell gives enemies disadvantage when attacking me, and I can’t be targeted directly with a save spell.

The Mirror Image spell gives me a chance of avoiding damage if they do manage to hit me through the disadvantage of not being able to see me.

Am I correctly understanding the combination of these two spells? Or is there anything stopping this working?

Can a Tomelock swap the Book of Ancient Secrets invocation with itself upon level-up, and gain more than two ritual spells that way?

Eldritch Invocations (PHB, p. 107):

…Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the invocations you know and replace it with another invocation that you could learn at that level.

Book of Ancient Secrets (BoAS) (PHB, p. 110):

Prerequisite: Pact of the Tome

You can now inscribe magical rituals in your Book of Shadows. Choose two 1st-level spells that have the ritual tag from any class’s spell list (the two needn’t be from the same list). The spells appear in the book and don’t count against the number of spells you know. With your Book of Shadows in hand, you can cast the chosen spells as rituals. You can’t cast the spells except as rituals, unless you’ve learned them by some other means. You can also cast a warlock spell you know as a ritual if it has the ritual tag.

On your adventures, you can add other ritual spells to your Book of Shadows. When you find such a spell, you can add it to the book if the spell’s level is equal to or less than half your warlock level (rounded up) and if you can spare the time to transcribe the spell. For each level of the spell, the transcription process takes 2 hours and costs 50 gp for the rare inks needed to inscribe it.

Assuming that the DM rules that the Rituals learned by BoAS don’t vanish upon dismissing (old) BoAS:

Is it possible by RAW to gain two new ritual spells with every warlock level by switching the BoAS invocation with the BoAS invocation upon level-up?

Bonus:

Assuming that the DM rules that the spells learned from BoAS vanish:

Can a warlock copy a spell from his Book of Shadows to his Book of Shadows and preserve the Spells in this way to get more ritual spells by switching BoAS with BoAS on level-up?

What Would Be A Balanced Eldritch Invocation That Involves Blindsight?

I’ve been trying to homebrew an Eldritch Invocation that grants the Warlock blindsight, but I’m not sure how far this blindsight should extend. I initially thought to compare it to the pre-existing invocation Devil’s Sight, which grants 120 feet of darkvision through magical and non-magical darkness, but blindsight is (obviously) far superior to darkvision, so I deserted that comparison. Any suggestions for how far the blindsight should extend would be greatly appreciated.

I was hoping to make this blindsight Eldritch Invocation have no Warlock level or Pact prerequisites, but I would be willing to add a level prerequisite if it’s absolutely necessary.

Is this Homebrew Eldritch Invocation, Accursed Memory, balanced?


Accursed Memory, Prerequisite: 5th level

You can cast Hex at will as a 1st-level spell, without expending a spell slot or material components.

This invocation is pretty straightforward, but, I suspect that the nature of Hex may present balance issues compared to other invocations like Fiendish Vigor or Armor of Shadows. At 5th level, a Warlock may use a single spell slot on Hex for 8-hours assuming they maintain concentration. This invocation would save them that 1 spell slot. However, the invocation would also allow Warlocks to break concentration without worrying about “wasting” that precious spell slot. Over the course of the day, this could be very useful for a Warlock…maybe too useful?

Alternatively, limiting this invocation to “once per short rest” or “once per long rest” is an option. Although, I’m not sure how useful 1 free casting of the 1-hour version of Hex would be when a 5th level Warlock can already cast Hex at 3rd level for 8-hours.

Any help would be much appreciated!

If I create magical darkness with the Silent Image spell, can I see through it if I have the Devil’s Sight warlock invocation?

Since Devil’s Sight allows one to see through magical and nonmagical darkness, and Silent Image can create any visual phenomenon, can I create darkness as a visual phenomenon which Devil’s Sight can then see through?

If a warlock with the Book of Ancient Secrets invocation swaps it out and takes the Ritual Caster feat, can they cast already-copied rituals?

I have a player that is playing a warlock. He wants to go Pact of the Tome and take the Book of Ancient Secrets eldritch invocation at level 3, but then replace it at a later with a different invocation. He keeps the book and at a later level takes the Ritual Caster feat.

Would the Ritual Caster feat permit him the ability to ritually cast the already transcribed rituals even if they are not of the chosen class from the feat?
