Spell Description

Divine light washes out from you and coalesces in a soft radiance in a 30-foot radius around you. Creatures of your choice in that radius when you cast this spell shed dim light in a 5-foot radius and have advantage on all saving throws, and other creatures have disadvantage on attack rolls against them until the spell ends. In addition, when a fiend or an undead hits an affected creature with a melee attack, the aura flashes with brilliant light. The attacker must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or be blinded until the spell ends

Is Holy Aura Good?

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

Overall Notes: Wow, what a buff. Having all attacks against creatures in the aura at disadvantage and all saving throws at advantage can massively turn the tides of the encounter. Plus, at higher-levels your more likely to run into fiends or undead which provides a whole other level of value.

Class Specific Ratings for Holy Aura

Peace Domain cleric: An incredible buff that gets even better paired with your Bond ability. You’ll be casting this pretty frequently. Plus, it also affects undead foes and fiends, which can sometimes be relevant.
