Your best attack at levels 1-4 is excellent at levels 7-10, still, the best choice at the 11-16th level when used against multiple targets. At levels 17-19, it is merely the best option. The only levels where it isn’t much use to an Eldritch Knight are 5-6, and 20 (and even then, it can rock against multiple targets)

Is the green flame blade 5e overpowered?

You take action (This action casting a spell; a cantrip called “Green-Flame Blade”).

No, the effect won’t stack with multiple castings. If you cast booming Blade twice, it will still only deal its extra damage once. The damage from the normal hit does always happen, as it is an instantaneous effect.

Does booming Blade Do weapon damage?

Booming Blade can do better mean damage at high levels (11+). On the other hand, Booming Blade deals the damage of one weapon attack plus 2d8/3d8 thunder damage (levels 11-16/levels 17-20) on a hit. So whenever this 2d8/3d8 is more damage than one weapon attack, the mean damage one does is better with Booming Blade.

The damage of booming Blade balances against Extra Attack until 11th level. Before the 11th level, your damage increase from booming Blade is less than an extra attack. Still, more if they move, so it’s conditionally more damage. At the 11th level, you do 2d8 usually and 3d8 conditionally.

Can you smite with booming Blade?

Booming Blade and Green Flame Blade are not weapon attacks. They are spells that include a weapon attack as a part of the spell. A Paladin’s divine smite is not a spell they cast. But a magical effect they can spend a spell slot to activate after they have already hit their target. It doesn’t even use an action. 

Is booming Blade a spell attack?

It’s a melee attack with a melee weapon. It is not a spell attack, even though it’s part of casting a spell. For instance, using a weapon you have cast shillelagh on to attack using booming Blade would allow that. If you are a warlock with that ability, you could.

Misty Step is a teleport, not a movement. You’re correct. However, in saying if they move afterward, they still take the BB damage.

Does spell sniper work with booming Blade?

The title says it all. Usually, booming Blade has a range of 5ft. Spell sniper doubles that, allowing you to use it with reach weapons.
