Is Eldritch Blast Good?

Overall Rating: Sky Blue. This means that eldritch blast is an amazing spell. If you do not take this spell your character would not be optimized.

Overall Notes: Eldritch blast is easily the best damage cantrip in the game and is your bread and butter as a warlock. The range is amazing, it has a d10 damage dice, it does force damage, works really well with hex, can target multiple targets at higher levels, can critical hit, and it scales like any other cantrip. Make sure to pick up the Agonizing Blast invocation which will allow you to add your CHA modifier to the damage.
