- How can Silent Image be used to obscure vision in combat in 5E? 5 answers
I am playing as a Warlock with the Misty Visions Eldritch Invocation. I see a group of enemies, and I cast Silent Image to create a 15 x 15 rock in the space(s) that they are occupying.
If they succeed on their saving throw, they’d be able to see through it, but if they fail, they should be blind? Shouldn’t they?
Maybe they see rock right in from of their eyes, what if I cast an image of Obsidian?, or Basalt? or Black Concrete? Can I blind them, or make them think they are blind?
Misty Visions Description:
You can cast silent image at will, without expending a spell slot or material components
Silent Image Description:
You create the image of an object, a creature, or some other visible phenomenon that is no larger than a 15-foot cube. The image appears at a spot within range and lasts for the duration. The image is purely visual; it isn’t accompanied by sound, smell, or other sensory effects.
You can use your action to cause the image to move to any spot within range. As the image changes location, you can alter its appearance so that its movements appear natural for the image. For example, if you create an image of a creature and move it, you can alter the image so that it appears to be walking.
Physical interaction with the image reveals it to be an illusion, because things can pass through it. A creature that uses its action to examine the image can determine that it is an illusion with a successful Intelligence (Investigation) check against your spell save DC. If a creature discerns the illusion for what it is, the creature can see through the image.
