Choose a willing creature that you can see within range. Until the spell ends, the target’s speed is doubled, it gains a +2 bonus to AC, it has advantage on Dexterity saving throws, and it gains an additional action on each of its turns. That action can be used only to take the Attack (one weapon attack only), Dash, Disengage, Hide, or Use an Object action.
When the spell ends, the target can’t move or take actions until after its next turn, as a wave of lethargy sweeps over it.
Is Haste Good?
Overall Rating: Blue. This means that haste is a great spell and you should strongly consider this spell for your character.
Overall Notes: Lovely buff for non-caster party members, just make sure you don’t immediately have your concentration broken and waste a 3rd level spell and your party member's next turn.
Class Specific Ratings for Haste
Eldritch Knight fighter: * Possibly the best self-buff for Eldritch Knights. Make sure you're running War Caster if you're going to be using this spell frequently, as losing your concentration is very detrimental.
Oath of Glory paladin: Haste is an absolutely amazing offensive buff for you Oath of Glory paladin. It provides extra attacks, extra AC, and bonuses to DEX saves as long as you can maintain concentration. Because you will likely cast this spell on yourself then wade into battle, you will want to consider picking up War Caster to get advantage on your concentration checks because you really don’t want to lose a turn if you drop concentration.
Arcane Trickster rogue: * Haste is universally loved as one of the better buffs, and can be great for rogues since they lack Extra Attacks. However, using your turn to buff yourself only to immediately have your concentration broken is devastating. If you’re going to be running with this spell often, pick up War Caster.
