I hate to say this but I spell sniper only works on spells that require an attack roll. And Vicious Mockery doesn’t require an attack roll, but rather it requires the target to make a saving throw.
It’s still a cool looking item.
@AceWolf456, technically spell sniper can apply to vicious mockery, but only to make it ignore cover, not to double it's range. Eldritch blast, on the other hand...
@Your Waifu, well, cover effects only apply a bonus to armor class, which is not relevant when making a saving throw.
However, I agree with you on eldritch blast. One of my favorite characters was a warlock who only used eldritch blast and had spell sniper, along with the invocation that made it’s range base 300 feet. And a homebrew item that let me change Eldritch Blast’s damage type. That character was joy to play.
@AceWolf456, glad I wasn't the only person who's spent to much time knowing exactly how the rules state it. It's a lonely curse
@voided sanity, bro, I am like the anti rules lawyer person of my friends. We’ve had rules lawyers debate things to make it better for themselves, and not the things that would hinder them. And I call them out.
The people who don’t know crap? I vibe with them. I give them advice on things they can do. I love having all this information. It lets me be the Chaotic Good I want to see in the world.
@AceWolf456, dip into sorcerer and get the "distant spell" metamagic, Eldritch Blast now has a range of 1200 feet.
@Dillusionist, oh, and quicken spell! Bonus Action sniper blast, main action do something else.
@AceWolf456, RAW you can't quicken and distant the same spell, so I'd use quicken on whatever other spell you were planning on casting instead.
@Dillusionist, oh right. Metamagic is something I don’t know so well.
What?!?!????? What is going on??!?!??
Hit them with a critical song of mockery
Pay a coin to your witch....HEADSHOT F'ING NOOB
