[Top 20] D&D Best Items, Weapons, and Armor for Warlock

When dealing with more than they bargained for, warlocks are protected by tomes of forbidden knowledge, eldritch gems with impossible angles, and dreadful talismans.

Warlocks solve enigmatic puzzles by making deals with otherworldly beings of unimaginable power, frequently trudging through jungles full of monsters and ruins ruled by the shadows.

Warlocks, one of the most well-known classes in 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons, can locate a wide variety of charming objects to aid them in upholding their half of the agreement lest they fall short of their patrons' expectations.

As we tear through the multiverse's fabric in pursuit of the best gear for your 5th edition warlocks, put down your squids, don your finest cashmere robes, and get ready for your signature appearance of superiority!

Make sure your campaign permits wondrous items before pawning your soul to your dungeon master because they are optional in 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons.

20. Talking Doll

Not every warlock uses the "scary" cliché, but if your warlock enjoys frightening both allies and enemies, the talking doll is the only option.

Each sentence you teach the doll can be up to six words long, and you can specify a need that must be met within five feet of the doll for it to speak each phrase.

You can put this to use by giving it to someone along with recorded meeting directions and pre-programmed responses to inquiries like "When?" and "Where?" As an alternative, frighten your adversaries or (lovingly) amuse your allies! If you can manage to do so with the same sentence, maybe your DM will inspire you.

Why the Talking Doll is Great:

  • If you think alarm clocks need to be creepier, then you found yourself the replacement.
  • Creative players might set it up beforehand to leave important messages for allies left behind, to warn others from a threat or just to play a prank.
  • We’ve all seen the trope of turning up an alarm and distracting enemies with it, the doll can work just like that.

19. Amethyst Lodestone

The amethyst lodestone is a fist-sized rock that has been imbued with an amethyst dragon's power to control gravity.

Your DM may consider it to be the hardest item on this list to locate. The lodestone gives you an advantage on Strength saving throws while you are carrying it.

There are 6 charges in the lodestone. You can use your bonus action to fly for 10 minutes at a pace equal to your walking speed while hovering for one charge. Although the fly spell increases your flying speed, it also consumes one of your limited spell slots and calls for concentration.

Why the Amethyst Lodestone is Great:

  • It’s a fairly versatile item that can be used in as many situations.
  • Given its size, you could easily hide it within a pocket.
  • Advantage in strength saving throws can encourage you to go head to head against bigger threats.

18.  Wand of Fireballs / Wand of Lightning Bolts

The wand of fireballs and the wand of lightning bolts are classics for a reason. They deliver on their promises.

Each wand has seven charges and can use one charge to cast its named spell, such as a lightning bolt or fireball, at the third level. Even if you keep the wand's final charge and never use it, this wand might be worth an additional six spells for your warlock each day until its last charge is used, at which point it runs the risk of disintegrating into ash.

These wands let you expend extra charges while casting if you'd rather upcast a spell than cast it repeatedly. So go ahead and roll 14d6 damage to begin the first round of combat.

Why the Wand of Fireballs/Lightning Bolts are great:

  • Warlocks get very little in the way of spell slots, so extra spell casts in the form of the 5th edition’s most emblematic evocation is always a plus.
  • Wands are small enough that you can smuggle them anywhere you could hide a pencil, and if your warlock lacks decency, you can always have it hidden.

17. Bell Branch

A druid or a warlock must attune the bell branch. With the golden bells and all, it might not be the best vehicle for stealth missions, but what it lacks in finesse, it makes up for in defense.

There are three charges on the branch, which you can use as your spellcasting focus. You can spend one of these charges as a bonus action to search a 60-foot radius for aberrations, celestials, constructs, elementals, fey, fiends, or the living dead.

Constructs are advantageously included since spells like detect evil and detect good would otherwise miss them. They might also be hiding in plain sight while remaining immobile and appearing to be a statue.

Why the bell branch is great:

  • If your party lacks a paladin, you can emulate their outsider radar with this item, particularly useful for characters who deal with extraplanar entities as their core concept.
  • The ability to cast Protection from Evil & Good is vital since it helps save up your minute spell slots.

16. Ring of Shooting stars

The ring of shooting stars is a stunning silver band with blue and purple stones embedded in it. It contains many tricks that the warlock, and occasionally anybody else, would not otherwise know.

This ring grants you the ability to cast dancing lights and light at will while in low light or complete darkness without using any of its six charges. You can also use the ring to cast faerie fire for one charge, a spell that warlocks typically cannot use unless they work for an Archfey patron.

But the ring's more emotive talents, Ball Lightning and Shooting Stars are what have made it so well-known. You can produce lightning spheres that harm nearby opponents or unleash fire damage on all nearby creatures thanks to these potent magical spells.

Why the Ring of Shooting stars is great:

  • Warlocks, with their limited spell slots, Warlocks benefit significantly from a magic item that can cast such useful spells.
  • Faerie fire alone makes this item worth it since it’s a spell that works wonders from 1st level to the highest tiers of play.
  • Gas reserves and other places prone to combustion can make lightning up a torch unviable, with this item, casting light will always be an option.

15. Voyager Staff

While there are many excellent options for staff and wands available, the voyager staff has a spell repertoire that is well-rounded and effective for fighting, utility, and exploration.

You can transfer the party to your goal or use passwall to guide the party through a dungeon. You can navigate the battlefield by misty stepping and by blinking in and out of the magic range of your adversaries. And if nothing works? You can always wish your problems away, though.

Why the Voyager staff is great:

  • The voyager staff provides spells that you might have not been able to cast.
  • Exploration is one of the core pillars of Dungeons & Dragons, and sometimes, the party is just not prepared for it. With this staff let all of your worries be gone.

14. Dagger of Venom

Having a solid melee weapon is a good idea even though the warlock's main cantrip, the ever-useful Eldritch Blast, is their bread and butter.

It can exude a thick black poison once per day that delivers an additional 2d10 poison damage and poison foes if they fail a Constitution save.

The dagger has a +1 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls. The Dagger of Venom is a good option for any warlock who finds themselves with their back to a wall and an enraged opponent closing in on them, even though it may not be the most potent weapon.

Why the Dagger of Venom is Great:

  • All warlock subclasses can wield it.
  • 2d10 extra damage is enough to make up for a low-damage modifier, turning a lackluster combatant into a real threat on the battlefield.

Dagger of Venom details: https://roll20.net/compendium/dnd5e/Dagger%20of%20Venom#content

13.  Cloak of Invisibility.

For good cause, the Cloak of Invisibility is one of D&D's legendary magic items. Every day, the wearer of this magical cloak has access to a total of two hours of total invisibility. Unlike spells that make a character invisible, this effect is not reversed by hitting an opponent or making them make a saving attempt.

A warlock now has a wide range of options and can focus its spells on several things besides invisibility. An excellent tool for warlocks who need to flee quickly is the Cloak of Invisibility.

Why the Cloak of Invisibility is Great:

  • You can get in and out of danger, and become the party’s inflitrator.
  • It emulates the effects of Greater Invisibility, a 4th level spell, for two hours a day, this means you’ll have access to unrestricted invisibility.

12. Broom of Flying

The Broom of Flying is a classic that enables characters to soar through the air, making it an excellent item for those seeking to play up the more witch-like features of warlocks.

The broom may also be launched autonomously and summoned back from up to a mile distance, which could serve as a decoy for foes pursuing the party.

Why the Broom of Flying is Great:

  • You get a massive increase in your mobility.
  • You will no longer need to spend feats or spell slots to gain verticality.
  • Unlike winged boots, it does not require attunement.

Broom of Flying details: https://roll20.net/compendium/dnd5e/Broom%20of%20Flying#content

11. Eyes of Charming

In D&D, social abilities like persuasion and deception are based on charisma. Due to the fact that they frequently have the biggest benefits to Charisma-based skills, warlocks are frequently one of the classes that players turn to in social encounters.

The warlock can perform the Charm Person spell three times per day with Eyes of Charming without wasting a spell slot.

Why the Eyes of Charming are Great:

  • You can save up on spell slots that you might have otherwise spent.
  • You can enhance your role as the party’s face when push comes to shove.

10. Blackrazor.

Tearing out of the pages of the Dungeon Master’s Guide, this legendary greatsword hungers for souls to devour.

With a blade fashioned like the night sky dotted with stars, Blackrazor would make any Pact of the Blade warlock willingly gamble their soul for a chance to cleave their foes with such an exquisite weapon.

With a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls, this sentient blade not only brings a lordly attitude but also the ability to tear the souls from their foes to gran its user temporary Hit Points but beware, striking an undead creature with this beast carries its consequences…

Why Blackrazor is Great.

  • When Blackrazor devours a soul, you gain temporary Hit Points equal to the creature’s Hit Point maximum, granting you advantage on attack rolls, saves, and even ability checks!
  • After reducing a creature to 0 Hit Points, the blade devours its soul, making it so it can only be restored to life by the greatest of spells. Never worry about your foes coming back from the dead!
  • A +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls is nothing to scoff at. With this magnificently deadly weapon, you can slay hordes of foes with ease.

9. Elven Chain.

Wrought from loops of the purest metals, this graceful chain shirt weighs no more than a pillow of feathers, a feat only the finest elven blacksmiths could accomplish.

This +1 chain shirt made of interlocking metal rings is so comfortable and fine that you are considered proficient with it even if you lack proficiency with medium armor, something most warlocks do not have.

Why Elven Chain is Great.

  • Unlike most wondrous items, an elven chain does not take one of your attunement slots. This means that you can increase your Armor Class without missing out on the other items on this list!
  • Warlocks lack medium armor proficiency. Wearing an elven chain lets you increase your AC nicely without needing to expend an Invocation for it.

8. Rod of the Pact Keeper.

Charged with eldritch power, this warlock exclusive rod makes any bargain with your patron worth it.

  • Once per day when you hit a creature, you can grant them disadvantage on the next saving throw it makes. This means that you can make sure it suffers any arcane malady you wish to visit upon it!

Subtle and easily worn, the Ring of Spell storing can hold spells vast by creatures touching it, using the level, save DC and attack bonus of the original caster.

  • Since warlocks recover spell slots with short rests, you could easily load up this bad boy several times before adventuring to increase your number of spells cast!
  • All it requires is for a creature to touch the ring while it casts a spell. This means you could store healing and support spells from a friendly spellcaster to be used when most needed.
