Discern Location

Discern Location Spell 8

Uncommon Detection Divination

Traditions arcane, divine, occult

Cast 10 minutes (material, somatic, verbal)

Range unlimited; Targets 1 creature or object


You learn the name of the target’s exact location (including the building, community, and country) and plane of existence.


You can target a creature only if you’ve seen it in person, have one of its significant belongings, or have a piece of its body. To target an object, you must have touched it or have a fragment of it. Discern location automatically overcomes protections against detection and divination of lower level than this spell, even if they would normally have a chance to block it.
