[RPG] Does a Cloak of Displacement prevent Magic Missile from hitting


A Cloak of Displacement projects an illusion, making it appear as if you are standing in a different place near your actual location. The magic missile spell never misses, but in this case it will be targeting an illusion that is not actually there.

Would a Cloak of Displacement prevent magic missile from being able to auto-hit?

Best Answer

Mechanically speaking, the Cloak of Displacement only gives a creature disadvantage on attack rolls against you. It makes it harder to hit you - in the case of things that require attack rolls - but it doesn't make you any harder to see or any less of a target.

Since Magic Missile doesn't require an attack roll be made against you and targets a creature that can be seen, the cloak has no effect on them and the missiles still hit.
