How do you use it?
The Mage Hand spell is a cantrip that allows you to manipulate objects within 30 feet of you. It’s a great spell for opening doors, moving objects out of the way, or even stealing something small like a coin purse. To use the spell, simply cast it and then use your hand to control the object. The spell lasts for as long as you concentrate on it, up to a maximum of one minute. If you are interrupted during concentration, the spell ends immediately. You can also dismiss Mage Hand at any time during your turn without an action by making a gesture (no words needed).
Important Notes about Mage Hand:
The Mage Hand spell is a cantrip that allows you to move objects with your mind. This can be a very useful spell for a variety of situations, but there are a few things you should keep in mind when using it. First, the spell has a range of 30 feet, so you’ll need to be within range of whatever you’re trying to move. Second, the spell can only move objects that weigh 5 pounds or less. If you try to cast mage hand on something heavier than this, the object will resist being moved and if it’s really heavy, the spell won’t work at all. Third, if an object tries to push back against Mage Hand (like a weighty door), Mage Hand will have an easier time pushing it open than pulling it closed because gravity helps Mage Hand’s force travel in one direction.
