Detect Magic

You gain the ability to sense magic, usually in the form of unusual smells. Different schools of magic are different to your senses, and if you take a moment to stop, you can usually tell where the magic is coming from.

Action (Ritual: 10 Minutes) - Self - 1st Level (Divination) - VS - Concentration (10 Minute) - Ritual


  • You sense the presence of magic within 30 feet of you. If you sense magic in this way, you can use your action to see a faint aura around any visible creature or object in the area that bears magic, and you learn its school of magic in the case of active spells. The spell can penetrate most barriers, but it is blocked by 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt.
