Warlock Invocations

Warlock invocations are extra abilities that the warlock gets at levels 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, 15, and 18. 

If an invocation has a level prerequisite, the warlock must have that number of warlock levels to take the invocation. When you gain an invocation, you can pick any invocation you meet the requirements for.

 

Invocations are sorted by prerequisite on this page.
