Eldritch Invocations

As your connection with your patron grows stronger, you are shaped—and reshaped—by eldritch power. With eldritch invocations, you can master unique spells and new, passive abilities.

Choose Your Invocations

When you gain certain warlock levels, you are rewarded with eldritch invocations of your choice—as shown in the Invocations Known column of the Class Features (Warlock) table.
