4- Modify Memory
Have you ever said something that you wish an NPC would forget? Well, Modify memory has you covered. This spell lets you erase the memory completely, alter it, or just create a brand new one from scratch. At earlier spell levels, it only affects the last 24 hours, but the higher the spell slot you use, the farther back you can go. I love using this spell to fix mistakes my character has made, whether it is being caught stealing or giving away too much information. It can be equally satisfying sewing fake seeds of betrayal among allies.
3- Transport via plants
This is the best fast travel mechanism any class can get. Besides, it is also the safest. This spell allows you and people around you to travel through a large or larger plant to any plant you have seen or touched in your lifetime. Once you decide to do this, you use 5 feet of movement, and you are at the other plant. This different plant can be anywhere in the world, and it does not have any miss chance like teleport. One thing you can do as early as a level 1 Druid is to start finding trees that you want to teleport once you gain this spell.
This is another spell where your imagination is the limit. Creation lets you create objects out of metal, stone crystals, or plant materials. The catch is that it only lasts for a limited time based on material, and you have to have seen it before. However, that being said, you can use creation to get yourself out of a hole, make a sword, make a jeweled ornament to sell for a quick buck. The possibilities are endless.
Contingency is my favorite spell of all time. When you cast contingency, you pick a spell level 5 or lower that can target you and expend both spell slots. You name the trigger, being attacked, falling more than 10 feet. Contingency lasts 10 days, and during that time, the first time the trigger occurs, whether you want it to or not, the spell immediately goes off. This spell is great when you have time to prepare. The triggers I use the most are when I drop to 0hp, I cast a healing spell. The second trigger I use the most is when I am hit with a status effect cast restoration.
Remember, you can be as specific or as broad when determining the trigger you want. For example, you know you are fighting a red dragon at the end of the dungeon. Instead of having the trigger for your resistance spell, be taking fire damage make the trigger struck by a red dragon’s breath attack. That way, a random enemy fire spell or trap will not set it off.
There are many great utility spells out there. Almost too many to list; however, this is my top 10 utility spells I grab. Let me know what your list is in the comments below.
