At just under a month of full release, Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything has been the talk of the D&D community for months now. Wizards of the Coast’s newest expansion offers players new subclasses, character creation rules, magic items, and more!
The previous entry in this series is a great place to get caught up on the coverage for TCoE. The article below will cover the Feywild Shard and Ghost Step Tattoo magic items.
Feywild Shard Wondrous item, uncommon (requires attunement by a sorcerer)
This warm crystal glints with the sunset colors of the Feywild sky and evokes whispers of emotional memory. As an action, you can attach the shard to a Tiny object (such as a weapon or a piece of jewelry) or detach it. It falls off if your attunement to it ends. You can use the shard as a spellcasting focus while you hold or wear it.
When you use a Metamagic option on a spell while you are holding or wearing the shard, you can roll on the Wild Magic Surge table in the Player’s Handbook. If the result is a spell, it is too wild to be affected by your Metamagic, and if it normally requires concentration, it doesn’t require concentration in this case; the spell lasts for its full duration. If you don’t have the Wild Magic Sorcerous Origin, once this property is used to roll on the Wild Magic Surge table, it can’t be used again until the next dawn.
Ghost Step Tattoo Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement)
Produced by a special needle, this tattoo shifts and wavers on the skin, parts of it appearing blurred. Tattoo Attunement. To attune to this item, you hold the needle to your skin where you want the tattoo to appear, pressing the needle there throughout the attunement process. When the attunement is complete, the needle turns into the ink that becomes the tattoo, which appears on the skin. If your attunement to the tattoo ends, the tattoo vanishes, and the needle reappears in your space.
Ghostly Form – The tattoo has 3 charges, and it regains all expended charges daily at dawn. As a bonus action while the tattoo is on your skin, you can expend 1 of the tattoo’s charges to become incorporeal until the end of your next turn. For the duration, you gain the following benefits:
You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from nonmagical attacks. • You can’t be grappled or restrained. You can move through creatures and solid objects as if they were difficult terrain. If you end your turn in a solid object, you take ldlO force damage. If the effect ends while you are inside a solid object, you instead are shunted to the nearest unoccupied space, and you take 1d10 force damage for every 5 feet traveled.
