Q on Charm Person `

1 month ago

Ive never been able to cast this w/o disadvantage.   Ive read the DD5e description and it says if in battle, yes, its always in disadvantage.   I tried casting it out of battle (sneak up to a group of baddies), but once the spell is first cast  (again, not in battle... yet) its in disadvantage.   Is this the way it is, or do you ever get a chance to cast it "normally?"

I would assume that if you are in stealth, that’ll give you advantage which will then cancel the disadvantage. I never use charm person or charm animal, though, so not certain.
