Read on to learn more about the powers of divination, including how scrying 5e works, what its limits are, and how to incorporate scrying into your worldbuilding.
What is scrying:
Scrying is a powerful ability that allows you to see things beyond the physical world. It is often used for Divination and can be used to find lost objects, people, or even other planes of existence. Scrying can be done in many ways, but the most common method is through the use of a scrying mirror. To scry using a mirror, you must first attune to the mirror by spending 8 hours meditating with it. In order to perform a scrying spell, you need a clear reflective surface like water or polished metal as well as at least one object important to your target (such as their name). Hold the object over the surface and chant the following words: Aufero Coaxum Ordo Facito. If successful, your reflection will change into that of your target’s.
How does it work:
Scrying is a powerful ability that allows you to see and hear things from a distance. It can be used for both good and evil purposes. To use scrying, you need a scrying mirror. This mirror can be any reflective surface, such as a pool of water or a polished metal surface. When you look into the mirror, you will see an image of the person or thing you are trying to find. You can also use scrying to find out information about someone or something.
Tips for dealing with your first attempts:
Scrying can be a tricky ability to master, but with a little practice, it can be a powerful tool in your arsenal. Here are a few tips to help you get started - Ensure that the surface of the object is smooth and clear. Candle wax or salt should work well as they don’t have any taste or smell, and they’re easy to find if spilled on surfaces such as tabletops or countertops.
- Put yourself into a trancelike state by focusing on an object or location within sight of the surface you’ll be scrying into - preferably something nearby like a bookcase that doesn’t contain anything valuable enough for someone to go through trouble stealing it.
Things you should know:
Scrying is a powerful ability in 5e that allows you to see and hear distant people and places. In order to scry, you need a scrying mirror, which can be bought at D&D Beyond. When using a scrying mirror, you must first attune to it, which requires a short rest. Once attuned, you can use the mirror as often as you like. The duration of your scrying depends on your proficiency bonus; for every 3 points of proficiency bonus, the duration of your scrying increases by one minute.
