Is Stoneskin Good?
Overall Rating: Green. This means that stoneskin is a good spell.
Overall Notes: Effectively double your or your favorite melee fighter’s hit points. Better at lower levels or when fighting enemies without magical attacks. If you'll be casting this on yourself, make sure you have a decent CON modifier and consider taking the Resilient (CON) feat if you don't have proficiency in CON saving throws or the War Caster feat for advantage on concentration checks.
Class Specific Ratings for Stoneskin
Eldritch Knight fighter: Good defensive option. The downside is you will likely be getting hit with magical attacks a decent chunk of the time when you are past 19th level.
