What Is Outlands Envoy 5e?
Having spent significant time in the crossroads of the multiverse, namely Sigil or the Outlands, you’ve been imbued with unique planar energies. The Outlands Envoy feat not only grants you the flexibility to increase any ability score of your choice, but it also equips you with the power to cast the misty step and tongues spells in a unique way. Whether you’re looking to swiftly traverse the battlefield or communicate with beings from various planes, this feat has you covered.
How Does Outlands Envoy Work?
This feat offers a blend of utility and versatility, allowing you to increase any ability score of your choice by 1, up to a maximum of 20. You also learn the misty step and tongues spells and can cast each spell once without using a spell slot, requiring a long rest before casting again in this manner. Notably, casting tongues requires no material components. If you have the appropriate spell slots, you can also cast these spells in the traditional way. The spellcasting ability is determined by what you chose in the Scion of the Outer Planes feat.
This feat is a 4th-level feat and requires the Scion of Outer Planes (The Outlands) feat before you can pick it up. Luckily, you can get Scion of the Outer Planes for free at 1st-level by choosing the Planar Philosopher or Gate Warden background at character creation.
Is Outlands Envoy Good?
We gave Outlands Envoy a C Tier rating In our 5e Feats Tier List, making it a below-average feat in D&D 5e.
Even though this feat offers misty step and a 3rd-level spell, it’s still a fair bit weaker than Fey Touched. This is because tongues won’t have as much of an impact as some of the powerful 1st-level spells you can pick up with Fey Touched, despite it being a 3rd-level spell.
