    Hunger of hadar Effect

    A 20-foot (6-meter diameter) radius spherical portal of utter darkness appeared and remained open for one minute or as long as the spell was concentrated. Beyond this rift, the beings emanated dark, hunger of hadar incomprehensible whispers from the other side and slurping sounds that could be heard on caster’s side. Anyone who stood in this region of warped spaces would be subject to the cold and also from acidic tentacle attacks from unknown horrors beyond.

    How can the 3rd level spell hunger of hadar be effectively used to cause damage?

    The spell has a 40-foot radius and can create difficult terrain. However, enemies can run through the spell or out of it to take little damage.

    The spell’s blinding effect does not help the rest of your party: the devil’s eyes can’t see through the area–it’s just black and not of darkness.

    Fireball’s damage is unrivalled even under the most difficult of circumstances. Is there a secret benefit or use that the spell has that I am missing? This 3rd-level spell seems to be subpar.

    How to deal avec hunger caused by hadar

    I hate the hunger of hadar My warlock shuts down nearly every encounter with this spell. The warlock throws it down, and the rest of his party lets the spell do its job while the enemy just fumble around with it. Is Faerie Fire a decent counter? Is it possible for the bad guys to drop Faerie Fire and then become hungry of hadar? Can they still see the party through this inky darkness caused by hunger of hadnar? This happens pumpkin silhouettes every single time there is a fight.

    Faerie Fire would make the affected people invisible but hunger of hadar would keep them from seeing other party members or anyone else.

    The spell creates an area of magical darkness. According to the section on light levels, a creature that is in darkness is actually suffering from the blinded condition. The magical darkness is what I believe causes the blinded reference to hunger of hadar. Truesight is a term that means the creature can see through magic darkness. This would permit vision into, out, or through the affected area. Truesight requires a physical object to block or destroy a creature’s vision.

    Is it possible for a darkvision character to see into the hunger of hadar This assumes that the character isn’t in the spells area and therefore isn’t blinded.

    I won’t even get into the debate over whether darkvision can see through the hunger of hadar

    NautArch They seem to have been answered and subsetted. When compared to regular Darkvision, Devil’s Sight does not have a unique interaction with hunger for hadar. We have closed questions asking different things without any meaningful difference (plus, I already bountied that marked-duplicate which now contains an answer to this exact query undernearth it).

    Outside

    Here is where RAW becomes ambiguous. Justin T pointed out that it would be a DM discretionary issue on the “blackness” being equal to “darkness”. In the text of hunger of Hadar, it says that there is a “gateway to the darkness between the stars”. It uses the word “dark” so I would assume that you can see through it. It would depend on your DM.
