Shadow blade 5e is an illusion spell in the 5th edition D&D role-playing game. By using this spell you can create threads of shadow. You can use these threads to create a sword that looks like a solidified gloom sword which you can easily attain until the end of the spell. Well, let me tell you that it counts as a simple melee weapon.
Effects of Shadow blade 5e
The effects of the shadow blade work differently at the different levels of the player.
At the first level, this spell deals the damage of 2d8 psychic damage on a hit. It also faces the light and thrown properties.
