D&D Wild Magic table 5e

Are you a Wild Magic Sorcerer looking for the D&D Wild Magic 5e table? We've got it right here - all the weird magic surge effects you could need

DnD wild magic table 5e - a monument to sorcery

So you’re looking for the Wild Magic table 5e? Scroll down, and you’ll find the whole thing below, but first lets quickly cover exactly what this table of mystical mishaps is all about.

If you’ve picked the DnD Sorcerer 5e class and decided to become a Wild Magic Sorcerer, then you’ll need to be referencing the Wild Magic table 5e a lot. That’s because any time you cast a Sorcerer 5e spell, you’ll be required to roll a D20, and on a one, a Magic Surge occurs. These surges are additional effects that happen alongside your usual magic. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just plain weird. They represent the uncontrolled magic surging away within you, desperate to get out.

Not happy to be randomly growing beards of feathers or turning invisible? You can check our DnD classes guide to pick another vocation – and while you’re at it, you might want to pick a DnD race as well. Now, get your dice ready, and prepare to roll:
