Is Misty step 5e blocked by Wall of Force in dnd spell?

You Teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see. The silvery mist surrounds it from all sides. It has no text allowing for other creatures to come along with you. The caster and the horse are different creatures. It works like a discount dimension door, considering it is obtainable at a lower level and is only usable within the range you can see.

Dimension door could teleport you out of a house with a subject, while this seems like more of an escape/platforming tool for a lower level. The spell can teleport the Paladin and his steed thanks to its unique properties. However, it will not teleport someone grappling you (unless the DM rules otherwise) because the spell only moves you (range is self).

So why does the steed move with you? A particular property of the Paladin’s steed is that you can make any spell that targets only you (including a spell with a range of self) and targets your horse. Note: This only applies to a mount summoned by the Find Steed spell. Regular mounts that you buy or capture do not get this. This spell does not claim it brings along objects. That appears to be RAW but leads to awkward situations.

Spell Details

Misty Step dnd 5e spell
5e Misty Step dnd spell

Briefly surrounded by silvery mist, you teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see. I would allow a misty step to escape a grapple, manacled to a wall, etc., as those are things you can’t misty Step. (You can’t take another creature, and the wall manacles are not things you are holding, like a weapon or staff.) However, if you are manacled, aka handcuffs, I would have the manacles go with the character, just like his clothes, equipment, etc. 

Misty Step 5e should only teleport what you’re carrying. If you’re chained to the Wall, you can’t carry the Wall. If they’re chained to your wrists, you can carry them, so they come along for the ride.

Can you misty Step while grappled?

As long as the spell or ability you’re using does not require you to move(such as to step through a portal), you can do it. So Misty Step, Fey Step, Shadow Step, Teleport, Misty Escape, Dimension Door all will work while grappling. 

Can you misty Step out of manacles in 5e?

Yep, as long as you can see where you’re going, you can use Misty Step to escape bindings. It would depend on your dm. “I would let it happen, and you be free from the manacles.” As long as you can see the point you want to go and have the verbal component.

Can you misty Step 5e out of bindings?

No, they cannot. Misty Step says: you teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see.

Is Misty Step a bonus action?

What does Misty Step do? This spell is relatively straightforward. It allows you to use a bonus action to teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see. It requires only a verbal component, so it works as long as you can see and speak.

These spells usually have a casting time of 1 bonus action. If you want, you can cast it as a bonus action. You can’t ever perform a bonus action with your regular activities, so casting a misty step twice on the same turn is never possible.

Can you teleport out of a grapple 5e?

There is nothing in the rules that says that a grappled creature cannot teleport themselves to escape a grapple. They need to pass a concentration check to cast a spell/use their spell-like ability while grappled.

Can you teleport out of restrained 5e?

 Immobilized or Restrained: Immobilization or restraint doesn’t prevent a target from teleportation”. So, if something chains them, they teleport free. The chains teleport with them, even if they are not free.

Does Misty Step trigger an Opportunity attack?

As an example, Wizards have the level 2 spell Misty Step. Teleport (which doesn’t provoke an opportunity attack) to an unoccupied space up to 30 feet that you can see. But it does have the restriction that your attack spell must be a cantrip with a casting time of 1 action.

 Can Misty Step go through walls?

Misty Step is generally known to pass through walls in this edition. As long as you can see the destination, you can appear in it. As the brief description of that spell states: Briefly surrounded by silvery mist, you teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see.

Can clerics cast fireball 5e?

No, you can’t learn domain spells that aren’t usually Cleric spells (except War spells). So if you choose Cleric, you can only learn ritual spells from the Cleric’s spell list. Note that this means you couldn’t learn fireball even if it was a Cleric spell because it isn’t a ritual spell.

Does Wall of force block Misty step 5e?

We can not cast through a Wall of Force. Teleportation spells (Dimension Door, Teleport, Plane Shift, Misty Step) are about the only thing you can cast through a Wall of Force. However, some Divination Spells are also viable.

Is Wall of force 5e visible?

An invisible wall of force will spring into existence at a point you choose within range. The Wall appears in any orientation you choose, as a horizontal or vertical barrier or at an angle. It can be free-floating or Resting on a solid surface.

How does 5e Wall of force work?

It lasts for the duration. If the Wall cuts through a creature’s space when it appears, the creature gets a push to one side of the Wall (your choice which side). Nothing can physically pass through the Wall. It is immune to all damage and can’t be dispelled by dispel magic.

If restrained, can a creature use a teleportation ability like Misty Step or Shadow Step to escape in D&D 5E?

Restrained doesn’t prevent either of these from working, so long as it meets the other conditions. It reduces your speed to 0, but both these abilities allow you to teleport a certain distance independent of your speed.

Speed is a crucial thing here. By the rules, even the Storm Sorcerer’s Tempestuous Magic feature that lets you fly 10′ will work to escape grapple/restraint. It is because (as Jeremy Crawford wrote): “A rule refers to your speed if your speed is relevant to how that rule works. For example, Tempestuous Magic allows you to fly up to 10 feet. The feature makes no mention of your speed, so your speed is irrelevant to it.”

Conversely, something like the long strider or the Dash action (which references your speed) would not work while restrained.

Your DM may, of course, interpret things differently at their table, but that’s how the written rule works.

Note that many things make the target blinded and restrained (mostly things that swallow you). In that case, neither ability will work since they require a destination you can see.
