Hi!

I'll double check in a bit, I think this issue should be fixed for the next update!

Also you can perform a melee attack and cast SW as a bonus cast then use the weapon as the bonus action.

However if you cast a spell then you can't cast SW.

Hey!

That's normal!

In DnD 5e, you can only cast 1 spell per turn per character. Do note that you can cast a Cantrip and a Spell though, so you can for instance do Sacred Flame (cantrip) then Spirit Weapon (spell)

Bonus Action effects on spells (Spirit Weapon, Flaming Sphere, maybe more) still have this issue as of last night.


Typos happen. More so on the phone.
