Ray of Enfeeblement Pathfinder vs 5e d&d

The ray of Enfeeblement, a pathfinder spell that works at low levels, is very useful. The target will take some damage. To mitigate the possibility of players ultimately incapacitating an enemy with this damage, the increased “the targets strength score” could not bring it below 1. Let us compare how Ray of Enfeeblement works separately for Pathfinder and dnd 5e.

Ray of Enfeeblement Penalties and damages

Penalties, damage, and drain are separate. RoE is essentially about looking at the base Str of each player, applying any damage or drain, and then applying the penalty. It stays at one if the penalty brings it below 1. They are paralyzed if they continue to take damage (tracked separately).

This spell is intended to hinder but not disable creatures. You could also do another thing, provided that it can be helpful to reduce the amount of something below one Str.

There are very few circumstances that can cause you to die from strength damage. A score of 0 strength means that you are “too weak to move in any manner and is unconscious.” Str 1 is “Morbidly weakened, has significant difficulty lifting one’s limbs.” Still, it does not have any status effects except the -5 strength modifier to any strength-based check.

Remember that Str damage is only fatal if it’s dealt with you by a Shadow. Usually, you can’t move.

Are you able to identify the Ray of Enfeeblement?

A spell that requires a roll of the to-hit button can become critical. The spell effect will be doubled as if it is critical. If you cast an enervation magic and get a critical hit, your target will receive 2d4 harmful levels. The same applies to a Ray of Enfeeblement. You would do 2d6+2/per 2caster levels if you were a confirmed critical with RoE.

It doesn’t matter if the spell is damage, a penalty, or negative levels; it will still be doubled. Critical hits and spells: Spells that require an attack roll may score a critical hit. Critical hits cannot be scored by spell attacks that do not require an attack roll.

A ‘weaponlike’ spell can be helpful to achieve a critical; it a/ requires an attacker roll and b/ inflicts injury. Damage is defined as hit points damage, ability damage, or negative levels.

Ray of Enfeeblement can be used to create a ‘not weaponlike spell.’
