Dungeons & Dragons has given millions of people an unlimited amount of fun, a reason to stay inside, and a whole world built specifically for our imaginations. The role-playing game has helped forge friendships, and it’s probably helped a few players meet their significant others. But with each new edition, the game introduces utterly useless Dungeons and Dragons spells. No matter what version of the game you’ve played, you’ve experienced bad D&D spells, and probably even wasted a turn trying to make them work to your advantage. Continue reading, dear reader, if you wish to learn about some truly bad Dungeons and Dragons spells.

There’s something to the argument that in D&D, there are no bad spells, just bad players. But then you decide to cast Green Blockade and your entire argument disappears faster than an object cursed with There/Not There. On this list of the worst D&D spells, we’ll be looking at spells that have been in just about every version of the game, and a few that were almost immediately revised, if not removed altogether. If you’ve lost a PC to anything on this collection of the worst Dungeons and Dragons spells, you have our condolences.
