You try to force a creature into dueling. You must save Wisdom if you see a creature within your range. If the save fails, the beast will be drawn to you by divine command. It has a disadvantage on attack rolls against other creatures for the duration. The creature must make a Wisdom saving throw every time it attempts to move into a space greater than 30 feet from you. If it succeeds on the saving throw, the spell does not restrict the target’s movements for the turn.
If you attack another creature or cast a spell that targets it as a hostile, the spell ends.
The spell’s description is not yet available (not OGL). The summary is all that is displayed. The target must make a Wis. save to avoid being disadvantaged on attacks against other creatures.
What does Compelled Duel do with D&D 5E’s saving throws?
When the spell is cast, the target receives one save. The save is Wisdom save. The compelled Duel 5e Paladin spell ends after ten turns. If the target attempts to move or is closer than 30 feet from the caster, the target must make a wisdom saving for every space (5′) they move. They can move however they like for the rest of their turn if they pass (no more saves). They cannot move further away if they fail (I would say they lose the 5′), but your DM may allow them to move closer or sideways (but not increasing distance).
If you have a 30′ move you can try to move six times with a save every time until they save. You don’t have to make all those rolls to move 5′ if your character does not feel compelled.
This Wisdom saves continue until the spell is over.
What does D&D 5E mean by saving throws? What is the actual purpose of “Compelled Duel” for a Paladin in 5e dnd?
Roll a D20 die and add your ability score modifier. Suppose you are proficient with saving, the proficiency modifier. You can save if that number is greater than or equal to the DC for the save. You will fail otherwise.
The 4th edition attempted to separate classes into different combat roles and defined the “defender” role. The defense’s position was to reduce incoming damage using a combination of high armor class, high self-healing, and high health.
A status effect called Marked was one rule that defenders could apply against enemies.
All defender classes can mark targets. By means that vary according to class, that would penalize the target for attacking other PCs than the defender. The enemy could attack the defender if they are not there. It forced the enemy to attack the tank in a certain sense.
Compelled Duel 5e Paladin d&d does precisely this. A foe who chooses not to focus on the spell’s caster will be subject to some penalties. You can attack the Paladin’s rogue friend by using the disadvantage roll. Do you want to get away from the Paladin and close the distance to him? You may make a willpower roll.
Tabletop RPGs have wisely avoided using the video-game-style taunt that forces an enemy to attack the tank. In recent D&D editions, taunt is used to encourage the enemy to choose a target.
However, in dnd 5e, Compelled Duel is not something I find particularly impressive. You’ll need to use your off-stat as a Paladin to cast it. Additionally, you will have to sacrifice your action and spell slots that could be useful to smite the enemy’s smile.
